About This Game

Bridge Constructor Playground offers people of all ages an introduction to the topic of “bridge building”. This game gives you the freedom to let your creative side run riot – nothing is impossible. Across 30 innovative levels you have to build bridges over deep valleys, canals or rivers. Following this your bridges will be subjected to a stress test to see whether they can support the weight of the cars and/or trucks which drive across them.

In comparison to the #1 hit Bridge Constructor, Bridge Constructor Playground offers an even easier entry to the game including an extensive tutorial. With no fixed budget, and next to no limitations on building materials, there are almost no limits: you can build and construct to your heart’s desire. Here you are free to do as you please and let the time fly by with creative bridge building. Experienced players will enjoy the challenges of the new badge system: for every bridge there are 5 badges to be won for which you must fulfill certain requirements. For example, building a bridge that can carry no more than a certain load limit. All of this, paired with a bright and friendly look, makes Bridge Constructor Playground an exciting and also educational experience for the whole family, offering hours of gaming fun.

It's nearly the same game like the normal 'Bridge Constructor', but in this one sometimes you have to build the same bridge in three different ways to gain badges.

This is just simpler version of Bridge Constructor. Maps are definitely less challenging. Apparently this game is directed to beginners. But is that good game? Yes and no. It is a good game if you didn't play first Bridge Constructor. But if you did, there is almost nothing new and nothing challenging here.

VERDICT:
If you like puzzle games and haven't played other bridge building games before, this is a game for you. Buy it and enjoy it, you will be surpriced how much fun is in bridge building.
If you completed first Bridge Constructor game, you will find no challenge here. Buy it on sale only if you want to get all achievements in short time.

Bridge Constructor Playground is a little nice game about bridge building. It's not good like Bridge Constructor Medieval, but basically you can make the same innovations. The biggest lack: theres is not really a story. You just hop from island to island to build bridges across rivers or valleys. The variousity of landscapes is also very low.

There are three different goals: 1. build the cheapest bridge, 2. build a bridge that can handle the weight stress test at its best and 3. build a bridge with only allowed materials. Sometimes there is a limit of money or a certain number of elements you can use. Another goal is to make it safe for trucks. Btw forget about the cars. In the end just the trucks count.

So you play each level 2-3 times to fullfill all goals and then you will notice it's always the same. The bridges with less weight stress are always made out of concrete and cable. The cheapest bridges can be wooden but it mustn't be. And for the material bridges mostly steel and wood is allowed both. Yeah it's challenging but otherwise it can be boring.

Altogether playing this game was mediocre fun but it's OK. In the end there is that notorious facebook achievement which obviously doesn't work for everybody on the first try. That's a bit annoying.

The concept is simple: build a stable bridge that will successfully withhold large quantities of weight. Connecting platforms to balance the weight and avoiding stress is the key solution to completing a level.
