Bridge building games have been swarming the Android ecosystem for a while now, but the recent arrival of Bridge Constructor Portal has brought the genre to the attention of the masses. This magnificent spinoff of Portal might not be what fans wanted, but it is an excellent game full of details that will keep your head spinning for hours and hours. The only downside is that it isn’t free, so we’ve decided to list five free alternatives to Bridge Constructor Portal that are available now on Android.
We’d be remiss not to mention one of the most legendary titles in the bridge construction genre. Bridge Constructor has been around for a long time and its numerous missions are enough to keep you playing for many hours. Each mission has the same objective: drive from one point to another without your bridge crumbling to the ground. Classics never die. [Download]
Build a Bridge!
It’s safe to say that Build a Bridge! has pushed this niche genre to new heights with its colorful graphics and versatile gameplay. Not only do you have to think about where to place each piece of your bridge, you also have to choose from different materials. It’s a great puzzle game, and you’ll be entertained even the sweat begins to bead on your forehead. [Download]
Bridge by Ketchapp
As the ‘by Ketchapp’ in the title suggests, this game does not feature the usual patient gameplay of other bridge construction games. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun, as timing becomes a fundamental element to progressing through the levels. Another classic Ketchapp game that combines minimalism and endlessly addicting gameplay. [Download]
Bridge Construction Simulator
While its rough appearance may put some off, Bridge Construction Simulator is a convincing and fun alternative. You know the game by now: you have to build bridges that are sufficiently safe to drive over for different kinds of vehicles. Resource management also gives an element of replayability as you try to increase your high scores. [Download]
No, we haven’t lost our minds. Stellar Fox bears little resemblance to the games above, but it does have the same essence: you have to draw platforms for your beautiful fox to roll along to arrive at the end of the level. The game features incredible graphics and a difficulty that will have you tearing your hair out on more than one occasion. Check out its huge number of levels, which will more than likely keep you playing for a long time to come. [Download]
