Already finished Poly Bridge 2? Looks like it's time to jump back in as Dry Cactus have just released a huge free content upgrade with lots of new goodies to play with.

What is Poly Bridge 2? The sequel to the hit bridge-building physics puzzler from 2016, it brings with it new levels, new mechanics, a custom physics engine, workshop campaigns, and much more. It was already fun and it's constantly improved since release with all sorts of tweaks and little extras but this update released on August 2 is on a whole different level.

World 5 has been added, bringing with it the Serenity Valley location with 16 brand new levels and challenges, along with new achievements to hunt down. If that's not enough for you the Sandbox Mode was also expanded with: a new theme and vehicle type, support for duplicating multiple selected items, accurate selection for boats and planes, undo support for multiple changes and a custom shape option.

Plenty more came with it like Hydraulics Controller improvements, with the panel being semi-transparent and you can click through it to add/remove split joints and hydraulics. There's also a vertical scrollbar added when there are too many phases to fit on the panel.

There's also numerous usability improvements like improved collision accuracy, optimizations, an improved system to highlight vehicles/flags/checkpoints in Build Mode, items will be highlighted on hover in drop-down menus and plenty of bug fixes too.

You can buy Poly Bridge 2 on Steam for £11.39 / $14.99 / €12.49.

I'm playing Poly Bridge 1 now, and while it's fun, it starts to feel very samey after a while. They could probably have removed half the levels and really improved the game.

Does the new game have a wider array of different challenges, or does it suffer from the same issue?

It's still really the same game, with the same sorts of objectives. There are some new mechanics, but it's mostly big quality of life improvements and more deterministic physics. If you don't have either the second one is the one to get, but if you've already got the first one it's a more tricky decision.

Good to know. I also felt the first game fizzles quickly into a very repetitive rote loop. The second game feels like it should be a DLC with an appropriate price tag.
