Movers over here, cargo over there. Can you guess whose job it is to make sure everything gets across the screen safely? Well, it's the movers' job, but since you control their actions and are also responsible for bridging gaps in this sparsely-platformed world, the task essentially falls to you. But that's ok, since Cargo Bridge 2, Limex Games' sequel to the 2009 browser game Cargo Bridge, is all about smart physics and crazy building goals. Construct sturdy pathways from one side of the screen to the other, all without going over budget.
Cargo Bridge 2 gives you two basic modes to work in: blueprint, and testing. In blueprint mode, use the mouse to select girders and other building materials, then draw them across gaps in the ground, carefully connecting everything to the fixed nodes. Once all is secure, enter test mode and get the movers working. Click on the left or right side of each mover to send him walking in that direction. Assuming your beautiful bridges don't collapse on the walk to the cargo, each mover automatically takes hold of something (be it a crate, a lamp, a stuffed animal, or an elephant) and awaits your instructions. When you're ready, send each one back across, timing their moves so you don't overtax your structures and everyone and everything makes it back to base in one piece.
Cargo Bridge 2 isn't just a glorified level pack build from the original mold. It includes a number of new features that smooth out the interface and add new features to the game. The power-up shop features usable items you can activate while building, including longer connections and the ability to spend beyond your monetary limit. Very useful for those levels you just can't seem to wrap your head around. There's also a K.I.S.S. award for each level, an achievement of sorts that rewards you for keeping your structure below eight girders.
Best of all, Cargo Bridge 2 includes a level editor along with access to community-created stages. In other words, you'll never run out of bridges to build or holes to fall into! Time to sit down and brush up on your girder laying/cable attaching skills, it's going to be a long and entertaining ride!
