Bridge Constructor Portal is a puzzle game where your main goal is to create a path from point A to point B using bridges, allowing safe passage for a convoy of forklifts.
Pro Interesting puzzles
While BCP at its core is a game about building bridges so your forklift can pass, the sci-fi elements of the Portal series make it a lot more interesting. This includes sentry turrets that try to destroy your forklift along the way, gel that speeds up your forklift letting it ascend almost vertical slopes, and even portals that allow travel between distant locations, creating solutions to seemingly impossible scenarios. It's simply fun to solve the many puzzles found in the game.
Pro Decent amount content for its price
While most puzzle games in this price range usually take only a few hours to beat, BCP has a total of 60 levels, taking about 10 hours for a full first time playthrough. You can even choose between a regular and a hard version of a level, further adding to the playtime.
Con Can feel frustrating
BCP relies heavily on trial and error, requiring you to build very precise and efficient bridges that don't make much sense initially. Because of this, your well-reasoned and carefully planned bridge might not work at all, which can be really frustrating. So unless you're a really patient player that's willing to try over and over, you probably won't enjoy BCP.
Con Can seem a little bland in its presentation
It has a simple visual style that uses very little color, the soundtrack gets repetitive fairly quickly, and the story feels like an afterthought. The puzzles are the main focus of BCP, but it feels like the developers might've forgotten about every other aspect of the game.
