Bridge Constructor Portal is a simple puzzle game developed for PC, consoles and mobile devices. It is the work of ClockStone studio in agreement with Valve company and it combines two series: the 2013’s Bridge Constructor and 2007’s Portal.
The story of Bridge Constructor Portal for PC, iOS and etc. takes place before the events of first and second Portal. Players act as a new employee of Aperture Science Enrichment Center responsible for building experimental bridges and ramps. Guided by artificial intelligence GlaDOS, well known from its role in previous games from Valve’s series (and again voiced by Ellen McLain), they must complete 60 different challenges of rising difficulty to become the best at this job.
Players’ task in Bridge Constructor Portal is the same as in previous entries of ClockStone’s series – transport the truck or their entire convoy from point A to point B. There are many obstacles the can interfere with that, like gaps, turrets, lasers and acid pools. To make sure the vehicles avoid them, players must cleverly use available resources to build durable constructions. However, wood and steel alone won’t be of any use in Aperture Science Enrichment Center, requiring use of elements known for Portal franchise, including gels, which change properties of a surface, ramps, cubes and – of course – titular portals.
When building bridges, it is important to pay attention not only to the way they are constructed, but also their cost. Each trial features some limitations to budget, and the price will affect a final score of a challenge.
Audiovisuals of Bridge Constructor Portal uses the style known from Portal series, with futuristic and sterile environment enhancing the feeling of being tested. Noteworthy are carefully recreated physics, especially recreation of pressure force on each part of a construction – a hallmark of Bridge Constructor series.
