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.
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.
