The bridge simulator you didn't know you needed
The Bridge Construction Set will not only cater to wannabe architects but also to anybody curious about the physics of bridges. The game, set in a wireframe 3D environment, allows you to build briges of different sizes and materials. The trick is to make something that will hold, whilst not exceeding your budget. You'll have varying amounts of materials like wire, steel, or decks at hand, each with a specific function. The fun part of the game is that you can simulate your creations and open it up to vehicles to see if it holds.
We weren't really bothered by the weak graphics, as after all this a wireframe simulation. What was a cause for concern was the difficulty of the game. You'll soon see that it's difficult to build something resistant with a limited budget, also considering that there are external elements that you have to deal with, like the wind.
We also felt that the instructions in the game were a bit limited. Although going into Help gives you all details into material weight, strength and costs and all the key functions, more tips on which material to use where would have come in handy.
The Bridge Construction Set is a challenging wireframe 3D building game.
