Physics be damned, go build some crazy stuff in Poly Bridge 3

By - | Views: 15,532

Dry Cactus have now released Poly Bridge 3, the latest in their multi-million selling physics-based bridge-building puzzle game series and it looks to be the wildest yet. As before, it comes with full Native Linux support.

The idea and the levels often look simple. Just build a bridge, to get vehicles over to the other side. However, it quickly throws in plenty of annoyances that will make you craft some of the most insane death-trap bridges ever made that would make an architect cry. "Suspension bridges, draw-bridges, multi-level bridges, crazy almost-bridges, bridges, bridges, bridges!" — as the developer says.

There's plenty that's new in this latest release, other than over 100 levels of puzzles to build your way through. There's improved modding support, decoration objects, the ability to create all sorts for it from vehicles to random additional shapes to place throughout levels. In terms of gameplay there's now some that have "build zones" where the challenge is to build in a more confined space, new foundation materials for super-strong bridges (but they're expensive…) and pre-built materials to bring with you for a helping hand or even an additional obstacle.

Available to buy on Steam.

It feels like it's only been a year or so since Poly Bridge 2 released.

I have the first game and never bought more because... this game makes me feel stupid. I mean... it made me realize I have a narrow skillset, and building structure is out of band.
