About the Game
Released back in 2002 and developed by Chronic Logic, Bridge Construction Set is about designing and building bridges and then stress testing them to see how these creations hold up under pressure. When test vehicles pass over these bridges and make it safely across you know you've succeeded. If they plummet into the river you know you need to go back to the drawing board. So, you must build a bridge that doesn't break in any condition, although breaking and plunging a train into the watery depths can be half the fun.
The robust physics deployed in Bridge Construction Set let you build an unlimited variety of bridges. You can try your hand at giant suspension bridges, complex drawbridges, multi-level train and automobile bridges and everything in between. The 3D graphics allow you to view your bridge from any angle including a first person view.

Bridge Constrction Set is extremely addictive simulation and strategy game. This is the kind of game that can affect your productivity as you can spend lots and lots of hours building and breaking bridges. Probably the only thing about the game you won't like is that the interface is a bit outdated. But once you go thorough the tutorial and the help section and get a hang of the keyboard shortcuts, its super easy.
