Here's everything you need to know about Bridge Constructor Portal

By , on December 21, 2017

Oh look, it's Thursday. In fact, it's the last Thursday of 2017. That means that this is going to be the last Thursday Find of the year. And it's a pretty good find. I mean, they're all pretty good finds. That is literally the point of this article, so it'd be pretty rubbish if it was pretty rubbish.

Anyway, cheers for checking out all of our recommendations, we hope we've helped you find some really great games, and we hope we can keep doing that in 2018.

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you've got your own suggestion, why not break with the habit of 2017 and chuck it in the comments at the bottom of the article.

Bridge Constructor Portal

So you take a game about building bridges, and then you throw it into the Portal universe. What do you end up with? You end up with Bridge Constructor Portal. And despite what your brain might be saying, it's actually pretty awesome.

You're building bridges, but you're building them in Aperture Science testing areas. And there are plenty of other Portal gadgets and ideas thrown in to the mix as well. Plus there's plenty of that Portal humour here as well.

Sure it's a strange sort of mash-up, but it actually works really well. It's a super fun puzzler that's going to keep you entertained for hours with its massive big chunk of levels and head scratching. Who doesn't like scratching their head, let's be honest.

Do I need to have played the other BC games?

Nah, not at all. There's a solid tutorial here, and you'll be able to get to grips with everything that the game has to offer. By the same token, if you weren't a fan of the original Bridge Constructor games, this plays a little differently, so there might well be something you like here.

Do I have to have played Portal?

While the mechanics here are different from Portal, plenty of the humour is a noddy winky sort of humour that references back to plenty of what is so warmly remembered about the Portal games. So you're going to find the game funnier if you've played the Portal games before, but it's not super essential. Although you've probably played Portal already, so that's fine.

Anything else I should know?

The game is premium, which is cool. And there's about 60 levels to play here, so you're going to be stuck into it for a long while. Remember that this is a puzzler as well. You're going to spend a good amount of time figuring out what you're doing, and that's part of the fun.
