The Google Chrome Web Store is full of FREE goodies and Cargo Bridge is no exception. Whether you are using your Chrome Browser on your Windows PC, a Macbook, or maybe you went all in and got yourself a Chromebook, you need to know about the Chrome Web Store. This simple Physics Bridge-Building game brought to us by Limex Games will get you hooked for hours…..and its FREE.
The user is given a budget, tools, and certain anchor points so that one can create a bridge that is safe for the workers to cross. Ideally, you spend the least amount of money as the money you don’t spend will become your score. Each level will start in the “blueprint” screen. From this screen you can draw up the plans for your bridge. Using the mouse you can drag “wood connector” beams across the terrain that will support your “wood walk” beams. Workers can only walk on the “wood walk” beams. Later in the game you are given additional materials to build your bridges, but the premise remains the same.
Once you are happy/confident with your design you can Test Your Bridge. You are now a spectator as your workers will attempt to cross the bridges you have built and return the cargo to the safe house. Pay attention closely so that if one or more of your bridges fail, you will have some ideas on how to fix your design. If all your men make it back safely you will be awarded you score, the crowd will cheer and you can move onto the next level. Wash, rinse, repeat. Obviously, the deeper you get into the game the more challenging the game becomes.
I really liked this game. With a background is drafting and way too much experience with AutoCad this game was a pleasant surprise. I loved how the design screen looked and worked, although I did find myself trying to use keyboard hot-keys to draft my bridge. There is no right or wrong way to play this game and the designs are purely up to the you. Another great treat from the Google Web Store. Booya!
