From level one, this game brought out full displays of emotion from me, a feat that a very small amount of things can achieve.
|Seemingly Perfect Bridge in Progress|
I failed. As an engineering major, I thought this game would be fun and second nature so I downloaded it due to positive reviews about the physics and what not but something about that first level sent me into a fit of tears laughing and raging. Even on the first level, my seemingly perfect bridge just collapsed out of nowhere, sending the train and its passengers screaming into a little valley.
Regardless, this game turned out to be one of my favorites. Everyone I know got a kick out of the extremely obnoxious screams that occur when you fail. I never purchased the full version due to the fact that I am a poor college student but I did beat the lite version. The full currently consists of 15 levels although I have no doubt that new ones will be added sometime in the future. It costs $1.46, a number that seems rather random. The lite version contains only 7 or 8 levels which I was able to beat in a few days but it was really difficult and I must admit that I cheated and looked online for help on a couple, they're that hard.
Overall, this game deserves its 4.5/5 star rating in the Android Marketpace. It is very frustrating and could take a lot of time to finish if you do it without any help. The game, however, is useless once you beat it due to its lack of replayability. There is a free mode in the full version in which you can make anything your little heart desires but really, it is up to you to decide whether a $1.46 is worth a few hours of fun. For me, it isn't. I hope that if you're still reading up to this point (if you are, you are a champ) that you will follow me and enjoy my future and past posts.
