It’s been a few weeks since we last had a Wednesday XBLA title, but thankfully today sees normality return in the release of The Bridge.
A 2D logic puzzle game with a massive M.C. Escher design influence, The Bridge will allow you to explore increasingly difficult worlds, all of which are detailed and designed to leave the player with a sense of accomplishment.
You can expect lots of ‘woo-hoo’ and ‘aha’ moments with The Bridge, set over 48 challenging levels.
A couple of weeks back, we managed to grab the main brain behind the game, Ty Taylor, for a quick Q&A session and so if you would like to know more about The Bridge and the process behind it, please take a look at our article, whilst the game is downloading.
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. 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.
Available right now from the Xbox Games Store or directly from your console for £6.75/$9.99. There is also a trial version out for you to have a look at, or you could wait for our full review in the next couple of days.
