Reviews for The Bridge
Crossing the laws of gravity with geometric illusionIllestAlexander | Nov. 17, 2014 | See all IllestAlexander's reviews »
The Bridge is a well-written puzzle game, which sometimes lacks a little diversity. For a homogeneous and gray (although beautiful!) graphic design and the slow pace of the levels seem to be from time to time “similar”. The game could also be a bit longer, although its passage takes a good few hours (I have a feeling that most of them rather applies to the last levels of the other world). Due to the increasing level of difficulty of puzzles, a very helpful solution is the 6-stage hint system. But The Bridge is still a strong position - is really charming and masterfully executed.
One of my favourite games on steamsamtahbou | Sept. 22, 2014 | See all samtahbou's reviews »
I don't know what it is about this game, but there's something very deeply and profoundly disturbing about it. It's like a terrifyingly beautiful nightmare. It is captivating. I love the art, the originality, and the atmosphere. But you still have this feeling of something being off. The game sucks you in and leaves you wondering what will happen to you once you've been taken. It really is just like those dreams where everything is perfectly fine, except for an uneasy feeling, you don't know what is giving you that feeling, maybe it's those boots that are laying on their side, or the absence of lint on your clothes, you don't know, but you can tell something is wrong. If you are expecting a monster or someone with a chainsaw popping up like it's a B horror flick, you won't find that here. But you will remain uneasy throughout.
I recommend this game 100%, and I'm giving it a 9/10. The experience you get from playing this game is unlike any other I've played in the past. It's very unique, it has elements I've seen in other games, rotating the map, manipulating gravity, but the ingenuity with which it was applied is unparalleled. But be warned, this game will haunt you like few other games have.

Actually the game is little bit short but when you trapped in a level you cant solve it for hours sometimes especially further levels. So i like the game and spent hours, but it may give you little vertigo :) You must spin the environment and use the gravity to solve puzzle and get in to door. Also this game has very cute with handwrite graphics. A different style in the puzzle games with this game, sometimes hard and sometimes so easy, but almost you having fun. Maybe can be better but it has an exclusive concept. While you are playing the music in the background it is relaxing you while you trying to solve puzzles. I played for hours but i couldn't play without a break because of vertigo from levels :) Anyway, it deserves the price.
Simple, but very challengingdarkkillex | Aug. 24, 2014 | See all darkkillex's reviews »
This game is a mix between a platform game and a puzzle game. At first, when you start playing, it seems relatively easy to solve the puzzles, but very quickly these puzzles lead to some head-scratching moments.
Every time you get the grasp of a mechanic, the game introduces you to a new one, which completely changes the way to solve the puzzles. This means there isn't one strategy to solve all puzzles, because every puzzle is different and requires a different approach.
This game is very challenging and also quite unique, which makes it one of my favorite puzzle games.
Good puzzle game :)insane11 | May 26, 2014 | See all insane11's reviews »
This is a decent puzzle game that can be best described as a cross between Braid and And Yet It Moves. Each level has you trying to find your way through a door which you do through rotating the level (like in And Yet It Moves). You also have the ability to rewind time if you're going die or make a mistake (like in Braid).
The Good: - I really loved the visual style of the game. - The level design is really cool with each level having an abstract art look to it. - The puzzles provide a decent challenge.
The Bad: - The game doesn't feel very original having used ideas already used in other games. - The second half of the game just features mirrored versions of the levels in the first half. While these levels are more challenging than original version it would have been better to maybe have added more original levels instead.
Overall this is a pretty decent game and worth picking up if you enjoy puzzle games.
Decent puzzle game.edg1812 | May 19, 2014 | See all edg1812's reviews »
More and more creative elements are introduced as you progress through the different doors gradually. Once there are 4 or 5 new methods and tools for solving puzzles, the game gets interesting and is actually quite challenging at a few instances.
I have to say that I had to invent a few rules reminiscent of the right hand rules of eletromagnetism in order to keep a track of which objects ended up with which orientations of gravity. Cool concept, but not much more than a stage-by-stage puzzle solving game.
I would definitely suggest giving it a purchase if you like brain teasers.

This game isn't that good. It really isn't. It's a puzzle game that involves turning the world around you to affect objects in it. A somewhat cool idea with an interesting art style, though not executed that well. I found the game pretty boring and got tired of it really quickly. If you're looking for a similar game that is much better at what it attempts to do, try And Yet it Moves. I do not recommend The Bridge for any price.

Let me say something before I start: I love indie games. Why? Because, they are from a fresh face in the industry to create something completly out of the ordinary of usual games. The Bridge is a shining example of a brilliant indie game.
The Bridge is a puzzle game where you are Issac Newton, and you use gravity to solve puzzles, but theres one catch: You have control of the world. You can turn it upside down, right side up, or how ever you want to solve mind blowing puzzles.
Its art style is like one I've never seen before, and it works perfectly into the mysterious setting of the game. You are drawn in with a pencil in every level, and everything looks like a rough draft of whatever it is. Mix it up with music that brings a mysterious and puzzling mood, and you got a great indie game.
One of my favorite indie games of all time, and I cant wait to finish it.
a confusing romp in the mind of an artistdamienjameswebb | Feb. 7, 2014 | See all damienjameswebb's reviews »
i didn't understand what this game was at first... was it a platformer? a puzle game? i just didn't get it... until i was getting mad at it.
this game is so hard to try and figure out that i spent almost 6 hours trying to get one puzzle... and i enjoyed every minute of it. it has an interesting mechanic mix of using gravity, color, optical illusions, and platforming. you have to get you the end f the level (or through the next door) but its not as easy as just walking up to it at times.
it's hard but very pretty. the art style is like a sketch that's come to life. and the graphics are light enough that the game can be run very well on under powered machines.
good game... very hard to finish

The Bridge is a great artsy looking game with solid platforming puzzles. I loved how the game presented itself. Everything looks like a sketch - but well made, and the graphics is looking more impressive than unfinished. The puzzles will make you think a lot and sometimes you might have to resort to trial and error walking up and down to see what happens. I think the game is one of the most prominent member of the new generation of platformers that started with Braid. I would recommend the game for everyone who is up for a little bit of thinking and puzzle solving in a world influenced by Escher's art and/or is looking for some eye candy.

There is something in this game what makes that I want to play it again and again. Yes, it's graphic style is unique and surrealistic. Yes, puzzles are challenging and not easy. Yes, it can be very frustrating. Yes, music is athmospheric. I guess all those things combined together made that this is one of best platformers I have played in my life so far.
Mind bending antics !Eat_Pushy | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all Eat_Pushy's reviews »
If you love Mc Escher you better step up and start playing The Bridge. Mind bending antics for the criminally insane, as if Mr. Escher had a psychiatric session on the couch with Edward Nigma aka (The Riddler). Only to spawn such a devious and delectable puzzler like sow. Will add a Quote that could capture my feelings while playing this exquisite game.
"For emulation has a thousand songs that one by one pursue. Running, falling, vomiting forth cobras enamored of fire escapes. If you give way, or edge aside from the direct forthright, like to an enter tide, they all wash by, and leave you hindmost. One could pass valuable hours, perhaps days, doing nothing, but hanging by one's earlobes strung by a thin, white-hot wire, burning with ecstasy. Up through eternity and further, I myself have often succumbed. Knowing not around what, or dim high stone forth."

Retro game, but is very funny, based in puzzle logic. Very recommendable.

The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to reevaluate their preconceptions of physics and perspective. Not very difficult until the end of the game, but beautiful to look at and very satisfying to play. I'm playing with a gamepad on PC, and it works very well Overall, The Bridge manages to avoid crossing that fine line between challenging and frustrating, making you work to solve each puzzle without wanting to break your keyboard/pad
Great puzzle gameCavalieroscuro | March 6, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
If you loved Braid or Echochrome, then you should buy the Bridge. In this puzzle games there are a lot of hard challenges, that will require all your skills to be beaten. But yes, there are a tons of good puzzle platformer on the market at the moment, but The Bridge has one astonishing feature, its graphic side. It's like an Escher picture mixed with a black and white comic book. When you will complete the game, it will unlock another version of it with new puzzles and challenges. One of the best indie game of this year (at least, for now).
