Back in 2007, Portal was part of Valve’s popular The Orange Box collection of computer games. The long-awaited release of Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 never took place and turned into a meme. Valve fans have long ceased to hope for a new Portal, so the appearance of the Bridge Constructor Portal is a real event.

In the game you have to become a new employee of the Portals Nature Research Laboratory, whose duties include ensuring the safety of the movement of men in cars from one edge of the screen to the other. To do this, you must build bridges, ramps and other objects in 60 cameras. At your disposal will be repulsive and accelerating gels, aerial panels of faith, cubes, etc. Using a special blaster you can shoot orange and blue portals. Upon entering the blue portal, you will exit the orange and vice versa.
The Bridge Constructor Portal itself would not have been such a great puzzle if it had not been for the presence of the ubiquitous GLaDOS assistant. She will teach you everything you need for your work and take the game to a whole new level.
It is worth considering that the Portal Bridge Cunstructor is still not Portal, but rather, the Bridge Cunstructor on the Portal theme. As in Bridge Cunstructor, you will have many tools for building bridges, but, like in Portal, you will have to solve problems (for example, use the force of gravity to accelerate objects). From the original Portal version, the game also received switches and cubes.
Game management is intuitive and works very smoothly. In order to mark the place where you want to put the new bridge component, simply swipe your finger across the screen. To move objects, touch, hold and drag. The zoom will help you to set the desired element as accurately as possible.

You can enjoy the game on the iPad, but it’s also optimized for the iPhone (though you’ll have to use zoom more often, because on a small display it’s not so easy to set the item in the right place). The inability to drag an object to the desired location due to the small screen can be very annoying, but the zoom easily solves this problem.
Bridge Constructor Portal is divided into levels. To pass the level, it is enough to bring to mind one tested object, while the entire bridge built in general can collapse. True, the game has a significant drawback – if you can’t solve the problem for a long time, the whole process will stall until you find a solution.
Other puzzles, such as The Room, have a hint system. If you think about a task longer than usual, the game will provide you with a small hint. If it does not help you, in a few minutes a second, more specific one will appear. However, if it turns out to be powerless, the third clue will literally tell you what needs to be done. However, there is nothing like this in the Bridge Constructor Portal, and if you are stuck, then for a long time.
Portal fans may not like this part of the game. If you are a fan of Bridge Cunstructor, then the novelty will be to your liking. Moreover, the new mechanics borrowed from Portal make the construction of bridges even more interesting.
Bridge Constructor Portal can be downloaded from the App Store for 379 rubles. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 9 and later. There is localization in Russian.
