Bridge Constructor is a casual build bridging simulator developed by Headsup Games and Clockstone Studios. It is available for purchase on Steam, the App Store, and the Play Store, for $10.99 and can be played on PC, and mobile devices. Headsup Games has recently released a new DLC pack called Trains for Bridge Constructor. You can pick it up for about $2.50.
Put your engineering degree to good use with this new DLC for Bridge constructor. I had a chance to play with the new “expansion” if you will, which switched the focus from building bridges for cars and trucks, to, well you guessed it trains. The new expansion takes you to “Choonited Kingdom” which comprises of three different areas to build bridges, but ultimately it feels like the original game, just with some extra added flavor. Don’t get me wrong, bridge constructor in itself is a pretty addictive game. You are constantly trying new designs and different ideas to try and support the bridges. If you’re like me, then you will spend the majority of watching them collapse and your train burst into flames.
One of the changes they made seems to be an increase in the money cap, allowing you to build bigger, stronger, and better bridges. Speaking from a logical aspect this was absolutely needed considering the trains are going to weigh much more than the previous trucks. From a gameplay perspective it’s actually a lot more fun to have more money at your disposal. You are able to try a lot of new techniques where you once weren’t able to due to money being a limiting factor.
The difficulty was also raised quite a bit in this expansion for Bridge Constructor. I found myself struggling to find an equilibrium between the materials I think I needed, versus the materials I believed the game wanted me to use. Using wood was obviously cost efficient, but it made for support beams.
Trains is not the type of DLC you’ll finish in one sitting. Bridge Constructor itself isn’t one of those games that you can hammer out in a few hours, it takes time. Although I didn’t play every single level, I rather enjoyed this DLC and found myself engrossed in it for several hours. Whether you play this on a mobile device or on the computer it is sure to grab your undivided attention for hours! Plus at approximately $3 for 18 new levels is definitely a bargain.
