About This Game

Become an appraised bridge engineer and architect in Bridge Constructor. Create and design your own constructions and watch the cars and trucks pass over them - or see them fall and crash while your inferior creations collapse due to weight and the laws of physics!

Progress through numerous levels and build bridges over deep valleys, canals, or rivers. Stress tests reveal whether the bridge you build can withstand the daily stress of continual use from cars and trucks.

Choose between a range of materials for each individual bridge, such as wood, steel, cables, or concrete pillars. Use the appropriate materials and stay within budget to build the perfect bridge. The choice of materials enables you to build each bridge in almost infinite variety – your budget is the only limit.

So get on the drawing board and set your imagination and creativity free!

The Steam version also includes SlopeMania, a fully sized Add-On to the original game, bringing more levels, features, a new setting and much more.

I've played three of the Bridge Constructor games, and find this one to be the hardest, but not sure if it was the bridges or the insane physics. This was the most frustrating of the three, mainly because a bridge may be successful one time in 10, but for different reasons - jumped funny, strange ramp effects, or tumbling incomprehensibly.

There are two parts, the main continent and the unlockable slope world. The slope world is the twist on this version of the game that salvaged the review, as the main continent was simply three bridge designs in different lengths, depending on what supplies you were granted. Slope you have to think about it, and deal with the crazy physics.

Bought in a bundle for about 75c US. Played for about 18 hours, with 4 of that on just a couple of bridges (see my guide on the worst one IMHO). NOT worth full retail of US$10, but if you can get it for 2.50 or less I think you will find it to be a pretty decent game.

5.5 / 10

Bridge Constuctor itself is definetly the hardest game of the series.
In the first moment it looks like Bridge Constructor Playground but it's quite more than that.
2 different maps 8 different islands. One island has normal bridges one has crazy bridges.That means you have to build bridges with ramps and your test vehicles will fly through the air. If you have completed all this then comes the freaky part. You'll get a little more budget but now there is this super heavy tank truck. Damnit I hate it when it explodes and rip your bridge parts into pieces. If you like some challenge you can try to do most of the bridges just wooden. But at least at the tank truck you must use every idea you have to get him over ...

Bridge Constructor is a fun simulation game for all ages.
It includes fun, challenging levels that are full of colour and life. This game really gets your brain working as use your imagination to create some of the most bizarre and unsafe bridges in the world! Watch as you fight against the laws of physics and the weight of vehicles to try to create your 'dream' bridge. Your ideas can be as imaginative or simple as you want but, will always get you thinking in different ways to suit each level.
As you progress through the game, you are given stronger materials and a higher budget to make your bridges more unique.
This game will keep you entertained for hours on end and is always fun to come back to after finishing it! Defiantly a must buy if you enjoy building and simulation games.

At a glance, it looks like a kids game, but it gets challenging pretty fast, especially if you want to earn as many points as you can. Every scenario requires you to improve on what you think you've already figured out. There's no one right way to solve each scenario, and so it's pretty much up to your own creative abilities.

There's a "funny" button? Who the hell knew, it's better to mark a review helpful. Gotta make sure it takes up as much space as possible so you can't see the ones that are actually helpful.

There was a joke here at some point, but who gives a crap?

This game is great. Good concept turned into a nice game but honestly this game is better on a phone/tablet because it has better controls for this simple of a game.

Do not buy this game. This game's physics are horrible. It hasn't ever recieved an update. EVER. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk.
I wouldn't waste my time rating this junk. Although if I did rate it, it would be 0/10.

A fun game to kill time with. It also provides lots of laughs with friends and family when played late at night:

"That's not going to work."

"IT'LL WORK! HOLD, BRIDGE! HOLD!"

*explosive failure*

"Told you..."

Bridge Constructor is a game that highlights the dangers of government privatization. It allows me to play as a slovenly, morally-void government contractor building really ♥♥♥♥♥♥ bridges for vehicles for a nation-state consisting of several islands. They have really low standards as to what a bridge is supposed to do, just as long as a minimum of total vehicles get across. Did the bridge collapse after those two cars got across? That's fine, they've already cleared the check and the remaining budget goes right into your slush fund. Smarter contractors than I will take advantage of the game's really weird physics engine to launch cars onto the exit point, therefore saving time, money, and more money. The government finds this acceptable, presumably because they like a good show and will think you are some kind of bridge circus man or wizard. So if you feel like screwing the taxpayer, why not give this game a go?

I don't know why this game was greenlit, it's a shame to all the other bridge building games. The UI screams "I AM THE MOBILE PHONE GAME" and the physics are absolutely terrible: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odGkRXc5R4k

If you are deciding to buy this game, check out the other bridge building game (Bridge It) that is here on Steam, it is way better.

It's basically the Android app but ported over to PC. It's much cheaper on mobile devices so I would buy it there if I were you. The game works well though.

At first I thought this game might be very fun to play. I remember playing a bridge construction game back in middle school and was insanely fun due to the fact how the player can remove all restirctions and make any bridge, anyway you want. That is NOT the case with this game. There is almost no creative input by the player. There is pretty much one way to make the bridge on each specific level and the game will very rarely stray from the design the game designers had in mind, the smallest change will cause the whole bridge to collaspe. I just wish I had the ability to make a bridge the way I wanted to make it, be free of logic and budgets to simply HAVE FUN, but that is not the case with this game. One might find enjoyment in the way how you have to figure out how to do it, but not me. It's like having a bunch of legos but I'm not allowed to make anything I want to make and I'm not given any istructions on how to make something from a set. For all I know, perhpas there's is a reward of unlimited freedom if one beats this game, but I have lost all patience with this game and refuse to play it anymore.
