LINK

JohnBIn the growing world of 19th century North America, supplies such as oil, lumber, and farm animals were in high demand. But with the unexplored frontier standing between civilization and the burgeoning new towns, transporting everything was more than a hassle, it was almost impossible. In the bridge building physics puzzle game LINK, you have limited resources but must somehow cross impassable gaps so heavy trains can make their way to the new world. Up for a challenge?

LINKSimilar to the browser games Bridgecraft and Cargo Bridge, LINK gives you a set amount of materials along with anchor points where you can affix girders, blocks, ropes and beams. Build a path from one side of the chasm to the other, then toss up support grids to ensure it can hold weight. When you've got everything just right, release the train and see what happens. Stress is shown by reddening items, and if something breaks, you'll have to go back to building mode and tweak your design.

Materials are definitely the biggest limiting factor in LINK, and the amount and type of items you're given varies per stage. The physics can occasionally feel too bouncy, but it's easy to compensate with sturdier building methods. The touch screen can also make for inaccurate placement of girders, ropes, and such, so be prepared to zoom in and out frequently or erase mistakenly placed items. If you choose to give LINK a try, be prepared for a challenging and thoughtful game. This is no casual stroll across the park, it's a difficult and sometimes frustrating game that will make you do some serious engineering work!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on a NOOK Tablet. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
