Uncivil engineering: Bridge Constructor Playground

Thank goodness I'm not an engineer.

This is the fate that befalls most of my bridges.

One more release to mention before the curtain falls on the App Store – a sequel to Bridge Constructor, or at least, I think it is.

Bridge Constructor was exactly what it said on the tin – and nothing more, as I pointed out when I first mentioned it back in July. I have a sneaking suspicion that the newly-released Bridge Constructor Playground is a re-packaged version of the game I’ve already played. When I asked the publisher’s PR people about this, I was told very enthusiastically (if somewhat unhelpfully) that “Playground is the even better new BC!”

Take that as you will – I’ll try to dive into it this weekend and see if I’m right about that. But if you didn’t play the original, you can do a lot worse than a re-packaged Bridge Constructor. It’s fun and intellectually challenging, if not a little frustrating at times. There’s also a free version you can take for a spin.
