Poly Bridge 2 is the sequel game of the well loved bridge builder puzzle game from developer Dry Cactus. Thanks to the developers I got the chance to play the game early for this review.
I was provided a copy of this game for the purposes of this review.
In Poly Bridge 2, you are tasked with helping various vehicles get to an end point by building bridges. You have to make sure the bridge is stable enough for the vehicles to use without breaking as well as staying within the budget. Different levels will have different difficulties, like needing boats to pass unhindered, planes flying through, and multiple vehicles.
The difficulty progression of this game is done really well. Each level gets harder and harder and makes you think more. What I also like is that you aren’t stuck progressing through the game if you can’t fully complete the bridge under budget or at all really. You can complete bridges over budget if needed. And you can go the the Worlds menu and choose what levels you want to try. I really liked this this hydraulics were not my friend in the game and could never figure them out. So I could switch to a new level to keep playing.
I also found the game peaceful to play and played for hours on end. Puzzle games can get frustrating for me sometimes when you get stuck and can’t figure out what to do. Thankfully, like I already said, you can’t really get stuck. The chill music also helps make it relaxing to play.
For those who want the challenge, there are leaderboards for every level showing how under budget they can complete it as well as for creating a bridge without it ever breaking. And for the creative types, you can make custom levels for people to play and try others’.
Overall, I really enjoy Poly Bridge 2. The low stress aspect is what I really enjoy as well as the difficulty progression feeling very balanced and reasonable. So if you like puzzle and strategy games, give Poly Bridge 2 a try!
