Got the thrills that pay the bills? Have an urge for high octane stunts? Or just an engineer by day that wants to be a daredevil by night? We present Bridge Constructor Stunts, the hot new action packed, stunt filled experience to sooth all inner daredevils. Apply now to be the next contestant and turn your passion into paychecks! Bridge Constructor Stunts is the follow up to Bridge Constructor, both of which started as popular mobile games and have now found success on consoles. The new game takes the heart and groundworks of the original, while adding the feature to actually control the cars this time around. Clockstone Studio and Headup Games are back with a smart and impressive sequel.
Building a bridge to get over a gap is a big achievement but not always the most exciting. What is more exciting is building a ramp to launch your vehicle over the gap and maybe do a few filps in the process (and maybe even hit some explosive barrels along the way). That’s exactly what Bridge Constructor Stunts is about. From the same developers that brought you Bridge Constructor comes Bridge Constructor Stunts, where the same building style and same objective of getting from point A to B is still in place but now you have the ability to drive your vehicle! With the ability to control how it drives including how it tilts allowing front flips and back flips, the game becomes a lot more interactive!
The building of Stunts allows you to select different materials such as wood, steel beams, and metal cables that you can place on designated spots. The construction system turns red when you can’t place materials in spots and green if they can be placed in those spots. Each material cost different amounts and the length on them increases the cost. You get a set budget that you have to stay under, adding a certain challenge to the overall building process. Another cool feature of that has been added in is you can check the integrity of your bridges or ramps and see how well they will hold up under the weights of different vehicles, which furthers the dynamic that comes into play when considering your structures plans.
The main objective of each level is crossing the finish line but some levels have different added in objectives such as do three flips and cross the finish line or collect a floating bonus objective and cross the finish line. These challenges add to the overall replayability in the levels, giving you multiple reasons to tackle the same track more than once. Another cool part of Stunts is how some levels require you to drive various vehicles such as a tow truck or a semi dump truck. Unfortunately, you have no input as to which car you are driving. They are set on a per level basis. The semi dump truck is heavier and harder to flip requiring more supports for bridges and ramps while the tow truck is easier to flip and doesn't require such heavy support when building. These systems make the experience both a dynamic and smart one as a result.
There are 6 sort of chapters containing about 6 levels each for a total of 36 stunt packed adventures. There are also collectible puzzle pieces and screws that add in on top of the normal level challenges. They also add to your overall score and make each level a little more challenging. The overall new additions feel like a blend of the original title and the Trials series, giving the player a solid dynamic between building and actually playing. It is a much more engaging title this time around.
Overall Bridge constructor Stunts is a very fun game and if you love Bridge Constructor you'll love this one. Like I said, it has sort of a Trials feel where you can keep retrying the level if you can’t complete it but you can always go back to the constructor side to and adjust your structures in order to pass. The graphics are very nice but the coolest part is the physics of the bridges and the vehicles as they add weight or flex as the vehicles on them. It’s just a really smart title. The vehicles also show damage if you land the wrong way you can break the axles off and not cross the finish line. This makes it more challenging to insure that your vehicle lands the properly to cross the finish line. Stunts is a successful, smart sequel that ramps up the fun while keeping the original titles blueprints in mind.
