Have you ever wanted to build bridges? If so, Poly Bridge might be the game for you to check out. This bridge-construction simulator can be found on Steam, and the game has an early access stage where you can play while the developers finish the rest of it. The biggest problem with Poly Bridge is how you are somewhat playing a demo, but you have to pay to play it.

Admittedly, bridge construction might not be what every gamer goes to bed thinking about, but for those who are willing to try it, they could discover a small gem. Poly Bridge challenges your creativity, and in every level, you have to build a bridge that lets the vehicles drive across. Sounds simple, right? Actually, it's very difficult. First, you have a campaign loaded with insanely fun challenges that include building a trampoline bridge that lets a speeding motorcycle ride across, and you have another challenge where you have to build a two-story bridge where the top-floor cars do not smash into the lower-floor cars.

In all likelihood, the best element of Poly Bridge is the Free Mode. This mode does not have the movement limitations that Campaign mode has. In addition, you have all the important materials needed to build some crazy bridges. Some of the possibilities include a bridge that looks like a roller coaster, a bridge that transforms after a vehicle crosses and a water bridge. Your creativity will be the only protagonist of the game. The best part of Free Mode is how you can turn these bridges into a big puzzle that other gamers have to solve.

A lot of the charm of Poly Bridge comes from its controls. You can build a bridge easily, but you still have to decide on where to place the pressure points. You click on the scenery and mold the bridge. Finally, you drag the materials over, and that is all there is to the game. The controls let you create complex designs in a matter of moments. The game designers of Poly Bridge added some realistic physics where the bridges behave in logical ways when vehicles cross over them. The downside, however, is how difficult it can be to see the differences in the various materials.

What's cool about Poly Bridge is how the game takes the serious concept of bridge building and turns it into entertainment value. With that said, you will create the bridges you want, from drawbridges to suspension bridges to mobile bridges. With this game, you get to become an engineer and test your craziest ideas. Believe it or not, Poly Bridge does a fantastic job of keeping it interesting throughout, and those who bypass this jewel might regret it.
