Back in 2007, the game Portal was included in the popular collection of computer games The Orange Box from Valve. The long-awaited release of Half-Life 3 or Portal 3 never happened and turned into a meme. Valve fans have long ceased to hope for the release of a new "Portal", so the emergence of the Bridge Constructor Portal is a real event.

In the game, you have to become a new employee of the Laboratory for the Study of the Nature of Portals, whose duties include ensuring the safety of the movement of men in toy cars from one edge of the screen to the other. To do this, you have to build bridges, ramps and other objects in 60 cells. You will have at your disposal repulsive and accelerating gels, air faith panels, cubes, etc. With the help of a special blaster, you can shoot orange and blue portals. Upon entering the blue portal, you will exit the orange one and vice versa.
The Bridge Constructor Portal itself would not be such a wonderful puzzle if it were not for the presence of the ubiquitous helper GLaDOS. She will teach you everything you need to do your job and take the game to a whole new level.
It should be borne in mind that Portal Bridge Cunstructor is not a Portal after all, but rather a Portal-themed Bridge Cunstructor. Like Bridge Cunstructor, you have a variety of tools for building bridges, but like Portal, you will have to solve puzzles (for example, use the force of gravity to speed up objects). The game also got switches and cubes from the original version of Portal.
The game controls are intuitive and very smooth. To mark the place where you want to put the new bridge component, just slide your finger across the screen. To move objects, touch, hold, and drag. The zoom will help you set the desired element as accurately as possible.
You can enjoy the game tremendously on the iPad, but it is also optimized for the iPhone (although you will need to zoom more often, since it is not so easy to place an element in the desired place on a small display). Not being able to drag an object to the desired location due to the small screen can be very annoying, but zooming easily solves this problem.
Bridge Constructor Portal is divided into levels. To complete the level, it is enough just to bring to mind one test object, while the entire constructed bridge may collapse altogether. True, there is a significant drawback in the game - if you cannot 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 have been thinking about a task longer than usual, the game will give you a little hint. If it doesn't help you, a second, more specific one, will appear in a few minutes. However, if she turns out to be powerless, the third clue literally tells you what to do. However, the Bridge Constructor Portal does not have anything like this, and if you get stuck, it’s for a long time.
For Portal fans, this part of the game may not be to their liking. If you are a fan of Bridge Cunstructor, then this new product will be to your liking. Moreover, the new mechanics borrowed from Portal makes 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 a localization into Russian.
