Now Available: SlopeMania!
In the SlopeMania add-on you find yourself on the Tiltin Islands, home to three brand new islands where you'll even be building your bridges inside colorful grottoes! The 24 tricky, never-before-seen levels will have you using sloping lanes to overcome the massive height differences. The "Crazy Levels" are the real brainteasers and require out-of-the-box thinking and unusual solutions.
SlopeMania is now available as a low-price In-App Purchase!
In Bridge Constructor you have to prove yourself as an accomplished master bridge builder. Play 40 different levels, and build bridges over deep valleys, canals, and rivers. Stress tests reveal whether the bridge you build can withstand the daily stress of continual use from cars, trucks and, more recently, super-heavy tank trucks.
You can 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 different materials means that there are numerous solutions and approaches and you can build each bridge in any number of ways – your budget is the only limit. The refined grid system allows you to realize your idea of the perfect bridge with even more precision. Let your imagination and creativity run free! And if you happen to run into a dead end, you can pick up valuable tips from the brand new help system!

Infinite chances to improve designs
I've only made about 8 bridges so far, and I'm loving the challenge. I drive over bridges every week but I've never thought about how they work. I am enjoying thinking about how I might support the weight. When a bridge fails it's actually fun because I'm immediately drawing on memories of real bridges and creating a new design. I also appreciate that when you remove pieces from the bridge, you get a full refund for the materials---there appears to be no penalty for repeated designs.
In test mode the bridge pieces change from their natural color to brown to red with several shade variants to indicate the severity of weakness in that piece. Seeing those colors starts me thinking of design improvements. In design mode there are three levels of tests: does the bridge hold up
1. under its own weight?
2. With cars?
3. With trucks?
Entering test mode automatically starts testing to see whether it holds up without traffic. Then you choose to test it with cars or trucks.
One improvement to the game would be to let me click once to test it with trucks after testing it with cars. Currently, I have to click through maybe 3 screens to get back to where I can test again.
Really enjoying this logical construction game. The tutorial could use a little more detail, but the game has an intuitive user interface which makes up for the tutorial. Each successful construction adds to your knowledge of techniques to utilize for solving future bridge constructions. The graphics are good, as is the "zoom-in" feature, but the physics of the automobiles and trucks crashing are far from realistic, if that matters to you. Plenty of chances to correct a poorly constructed bridge & rebuild. I love the feature that you can back out pieces from the construction & regain your budget that was previously "spent". So a bridge can be repeatedly rebuilt and tested. The "test mode" shows weak areas of construction by a color shift from green to red-brown before a car/truck "tests" the bridge. Separate from the "construction budget" are "coins," which can be spent for hints on how to solve the bridge construction. More of these "coins" can be purchased as an in app purchase.
Good, but needs improvement.
This is the perfect building game the developers did a great job setting up how to build a bridge by supporting different parts of the structure to relieve from weight stress. But, the only bad thing that needs improvement are the hints. They make you spend coins on hints that do not help you in any way. The completion hint shows you how to finish the bridges but not all of them are accurate. For some, after you finish following the hint design, the bridge will collapse thus making you feel that you just wasted your coins on a worthless hint. One more thing. Either raise the budget to build the bridges or get rid of it all together. Building an entire bridge out of wood to cover a budget is useless because it cannot withstand much weight at all. Fix those two things and this game will be flawless.
