Video games teaches you how to build bridges

Bridgeit 5

You know what’s cool? A bridge building game. We don’t have the right video card, but this game looks awesome!

A stunning, beautiful world awaits as you take on the challenge of bridging the chasm. Can you solve the puzzles and avert disaster?

Set in the picturesque surroundings of sparse deserts and dense forests it is your task to strategically design and construct an engineering masterpiece. Watch in eager anticipation as unsuspecting motorists, heavy freight trains and tourist riverboats approach. Will your solution stand up to the test or will tons of mangled steel be sent plummeting into the river below?

Bridge It shows off the very latest in cinematic gaming. Based on Chronic Logic’s award winning Bridge Construction Set (Pontifex II) and using the Auran Jet 3D engine running on NVIDIA’s latest GeForceFX hardware it offers a host of real time effects that surpass many pre-rendered scenes.

  1. Cool! Time to break out my old copy of Structural Analysis and do some refreshing…

  2. Not as pretty, but you don’t need an Nvidia to play it and it is from the same company.

  3. FYI, X Construct is a more simplified similarly styled game available as a free Android download.

    Frustrating as heck, but pretty entertaining.

  4. Here’s a similar programme that’s freely available.

  5. OMG! Thanks soooo much for posting about Pontifex! I was looking for the name of this a few weeks ago. Used to play this “game” 10 years ago, and it was uber fun!
