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.

Experience the thrill of finally being an engineer in a glorified flash game that is way more fun than it should be.

It all started at 8 pm
"i will finish this level and then stop, okay seriously this level only , okay i swear this is the last level "
And then i found out it was 11 am and i still havent slept, and the only reason i stopped is because my mom came and slapped me and took my laptop and kept playing the game.... wth...
( i actually have over 9 hours in this game but net went off and steam did not record the time )

This game has all the important features for a puzzle game
- Addictive.
- Fun
- Challenging.
- Creative.
- Unique.
- Time Consuming,
- Repeated music that fits nicely .

If you like physics based puzzle games when you build a bridge for the cars/trucks to reaches the otherside, this game is your target , its hard its fun and its not slow, building and changing and editing are fast, get more construction tools as you go.


Have the Bridge collection but yet to try the others but since i loved this one so very much i am looking forward for the next, only if they'd add trading cards that would be really sweet

I like pretending there are people in the vehicles, and i do their voices and send them falling down without building a bridge and making up stories on why there was no bridge and why didn't they stop

I actually found this to be an enjoyable game to play, some levels were very challenging, others were a breeze, but a nice mix of the two. Not overly demanding, yet still made you think. The physics seem a little off with the tanker trucks, but maybe that is just my perception of it.
I would recommend this to anyone who likes puzzles.

I strongly believe a game like this needs to steam cloud and steam workshop. However Bridge Constructor is a little fun game, buy it if you want to have some casual funtime.

Do not buy it, if you are looking for a serious Bridge building simulation.

+ Over 60 levels and three difficulty layers.
+ Leaderboards.
+ Works fine on a mid-range PC.

+/- Odd physics.
+/- Low replay value.
+/- Minor bugs.

- No steam workshop.
- No steam cloud.
- Monotonous music.
- No way for create multiple profiles.

One of the many games about building bridges. According to me game is quite difficult in highest mode. The graphics are ok. Gameplay also. Recommend for a small price.

If you know your Statics, right-hand-rule, and such engineering goodness this game can be a breeze...and even if not it's incredibly addictive! (2kips*5in)/(5000ksi*0.002in^2) with a safety factor of 10 would play again.

Bridge Constructor surprised me, it sure looks very casual and is as easy to get into as you'd expect. For veterans of the genre who played some of the old hardcore bridge building games though, it not only has a nostalgic effect, but also kinda kicks yer butt in places if you get too cocky. If you have played bridge building games before, you will have an easy and reasonably fun time flying through the first playthrough of the main campaign, which only took me some 2.5 hours.

The main campaign maps then open up for testing your bridges using the "tank truck", which makes things pretty tough and you have to solve levels differently (with some more budget) compared to your first playthrough! In the Expansion/DLC part of the game, you find some rather different and creative levels that at least to some degree challenge your engrained senses for the rules.

So while the levels in the first run through the main campaign become very much "seen that before", especially if you're playing them quickly, I am still positively surprised by the game overall. If you like games like this and haven't played any in a longer time, give it a go! If you've played them all, then wait for a sale.

Note: The game's difficulty often doesn't leave much room for errors or poor decision-making. Despite it's cutesy appearance, the game would potentially be frustrating for younger kids without guidance.

The bridge constructor of this island actually said
"Yeah this bridge is approved"
after 2 trucks crossed it while it was collapsing.

PRO:
+ Easy learning curve
+ Simple mechanics
+ Interesting puzzles
+ Achievements
+ Stats

CONTRA:
- The game tends to become very difficult in the second half.( found some levels to be very difficult, although the one after those seemed very easy)
- Notice the lack of options and the fact that it looks and feels like a tablet game with better graphics.
- Some of the levels are too hard
- Not enough consistency in the later levels

CONCLUSION:
When you build something that actually stands, the feeling is quite unique

Lots of fun!


Bridge Constructor doesn't try to be something that it is not. you build bridges and have trucks go over them and see if they hold up. It doesn't get anymore simple than that.

7/10

Decent game.

Occasionally you will have to employ less than conventional approaches in order to successfully engineer some bridges. More often than not 'common sense' engineering works.

This game suffers from being an iOS/Windows Phone cross over. Has an achievement for sharing on Facebook as a result of it's iOS breeding. I have a dislike for games that include any level of Facebook intigration.

That being said: Not a bad time killer, would play again.

Bridge Constructor is a brilliant game that puts you in the position of a builder constructing bridges across the 5 islands within the game. Each level tests your skills at being able to solve how to build a bridge in a means to get vehicles across. Anybody who knows of a program called West Point Bridge Designer will find this game to be quite similar, but the achievements and challenges presented will hook you right in. While you are able to build a sensible, well-thought bridge that will do the job perfectly, it's extremely fun to be able to build crazy bridges with massive jumps that still transport vehicles. The physics engine is so fun to play around with through each bridge design - launching cars off your "ramps" in the hopes of reaching the end - and the ability to do what you will when constructing bridges to finish each level is amazing.

A game that I strongly recommend to anybody interested in purchasing this game.

Giving negative review just for tying one achievement to f*ckbook. Also it doesn't support Steam cloud for saves. But it probably worth it if you like bridge games, like to have some achievements and very basic story and can get it for 1 euro from Humble Store. Not 9 euros worth at all.

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.

Bridge Constuctor is not a bad game. But there is so many bridge building games out there now its hard to choose which one is better. Personally I would say if you had to choose from all of them I would get Bridge Project. Dont get me wrong, this one is good but I think Bridge Project is just a little better.
I would still recomend that if you like this type of game, get them both

You might think these reviews or videos on youtube are funny, but the game is actually ♥♥♥♥.
Buy only if its REALLY cheap + you're one of those who can have fun ♥♥♥♥ing around with virtual(and mathematical in nature) physics, simulations and tend to spend alot of time with that.
