"I was simply flabbergasted at the complexity and simplicity they present at the same time." - 9/10 – The Indie Game Magazine

"Although rage-inducing difficulty spikes exist, The Bridge generally offers a middle path that should appeal both to newcomers and to expert puzzle solvers." - Gamespot.com


The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to reevaluate their preconceptions of physics and perspective. It is Isaac Newton meets M. C. Escher. Manipulate gravity to redefine the ceiling as the floor while venturing through impossible architectures. Explore increasingly difficult worlds, each uniquely detailed and designed to leave the player with a pronounced sense of intellectual accomplishment. The Bridge exemplifies games as an art form, with beautifully hand-drawn art in the style of a black-and-white lithograph.


Key Features:

  • 48 thought-provoking puzzles, each unique from the rest, all requiring an innovative solution.

  • Gravity manipulations, gravitational vortexes, parallel dimensions, and many more mind-bending concepts in a world where the laws of physics are not what they seem.

  • M. C. Escher-esque worlds with impossible architecture set in the style of beautifully hand-drawn black-and-white lithographic art.

  • An alternate version of the game unlocked after the main storyline has been completed, including challenging alternate versions of each of the 24 main puzzles, along with an alternate ending.

  • A time-backtracking system to alleviate any fears of making a mistake.

One of my favourite games on steam

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.

complex puzzles

ahamada | Aug. 26, 2014 | See all ahamada's reviews »

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 challenging

darkkillex | 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.

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.
