How hard could building a bridge be? In a game where you have to retrieve an elephant from a distant island, the answer may surprise you. Cargo Bridge asks you to engineer a sturdy path for your movers as they transport crates, safes, and yes, elephants.

Love the sound effects!

I'm stuck at level seven. The incline is too steep to go straight up, and I'm not sure how to get around that.

This game crashed Firefox when I played it, so I recommend playing this in a different browser.

Seems like a lot of the challenge is finding the right length for the walk planks as the levels seemed to be designed so the anchors are 1 or 2 pixels out of reach for an optimal design forcing the use of additional cross beams.

The game crashed on me also.

Hmm, works just fine for me. Score one for the Opera browser!!! >:-D

The game works in both Firefox and Chrome for me. I'm guessing this isn't a browser issue.

level 18 is impossible! HELP!

hmm, having trouble with lvl 17. any help?

Reply

I wish there was a "speed up" button, because even as early as level 2, if you make a mistake, there's a lot of sitting around and waiting.

A little slow for me, and I really wish you could move bridge segments, instead of having to scrap whole sections because a section is too long.

I'm also stuck at level 18.

there are two ways I believe could be a solution. The first one is to make two platforms, one to break and slow the box down and the other to be the actual bridge. The other way is to make a thin pilar reaching that small spot in the bottom. I didn't manage to make neither of these work.

What's really difficult in this level is the money!

My impressions of this game are really good. First I thought 'another bridge game??' but then I realize how much gameplay there is to explore with this simple idea. I can think of a few more fun stuff to do with this :D

I'm Stuck on Lvl. 16. By the way I love physics games! and this is a good bridge builder, compared to Bridgecraft.

"Crashed in both windows and firefox for me."

You mean IE and Firefox?

Firefox here. So far so good.

Notes to game developers:

Menu transitions are annoying.

Have a high-medium-low setting. This game gets it right.

Dialogs should advance under my control. This game gets it right.

Don't use custom cursors. They slow it down. TGGIR.

Frequently used functions should be quickly selectable. In this game I can't quickly delete a segment as easily as adding one. I need one hand on mouse and one on keyboard. Ok, so it's a minor nitpick.

Reply

Stuck on 17... having all kinds of issues getting it both to stand alone and even more getting boxes across. The physics is pretty different from BridgeCraft. 17 would be cake on BridgeCraft with just triangle trusses on top, whereas in this, the trusses seem to hinder the bridge by having more weight, instead of providing structural support.

And since there is no pivot on the lower right, I've been trying to makeshift one with the cliff face, which isn't going that well.

Reply

Too bad it doesn't save our solutions :(

I beat level 17.. but I don't remember how. All I remember is that it was a long bridge, and there wasn't anything too excentric about it. Just try to get the shape right by adjusting and tweaking :D arcs are stronger.

I had problems with boxes going through geometry.. specially when they're falling.

Reply

Yeah Diego... that's pretty much what I did to solve it. 18 was interesting. 19 was easy. 20 was kinda hard... and 21 is really, really annoying. I've gotten extremely close multiple times on 21, only to fail on the doorstep. Reminds me of a level I was testing on BridgeCraft before it was changed. So frustrating.

Bugs I've found: Got a C++ runtime error that crashed my IE. Tried playing in FF and got to the level select screen, and then it won't select a level... at all. I'm having those geometry errors, where sometimes falling objects pretend my deck pieces aren't there at all. Had an error where I couldn't extend a deck piece out to connect with a socket, wound up having to go to the main menu and going back, which fixed it. Lot of bugs, all around. Also, sometimes the items a guy is moving won't move with the guy, so the item winds up behind the guy... yet the game still recognizes it as if the item was in front of the guy (so it's just a visual bug, doesn't hinder gameplay).

Is it just me or does this site not detect Flash correctly? It wants me to download Flash.

This makes me very sad, because the game looks awes.

Can anyone give me a hint for level 10? No matter what bridge I build as soon as I test it, it collapses or I run out of money!

Reply

Yes, this thing will crash Firefox faster than I ever thought possible. I got through level 12, and every time I tried to load level 13, it just made my browser disappear. There have been times that I've used the task manager to kill Firefox for leaking memory (like when playing Rock Band Sim from a few days ago), and it takes some time to stop it and reclaim the memory, but this thing is instantaneous!

Blowed up my Firefox, as well. During the change between level 4 and 5 it just closed all of my Firefox windows.

Game is pretty OK otherwise. It'd be nice if you could speed up the little workers so you don't have to wait 10 minutes to find out your bridge can't hold that elephant.

Could still use some help on 21. Thanks.

How weird! I had previously lost all my progress... then the browser (opera) crashed. When I open it up again, there it was! All my yesterday progress! :D

Only kind of a spoiler....

Has anyone found a good use for steel? I just seems too heavy and whenever I try to build with it, it usually fails. Diego's walkthrough does not seem to have steel at all.

Reply
fattywads May 12, 2009 10:51 PM

not worth playing, it seems like a poor imitator where others have done far better. Its not that there are no keyboard shortcuts for tools its that there are no tools, especially no graph, so its impossible to tell what length things are or to judge whether a gap can be connected. This game isn't frustrating because its hard, its actually pathetically easy from a game perspective, its just frustratingly difficult because its so poorly designed.

Reply

I agree it's not original. But it does add a few things to the gameplay. The lack of a snap to grid, for example, is a good thing, in my opinion. The fact that the little dude go and come back with weight is really interesting! And some other minor things.

Btw, I don't really needed those metal structures too.. :P

I just wrote a new Points Walkthrough for Bridgecraft so I've been very anxious to play this. Kept crashing Firefox though. Finally tried IE and it works.

I'm halfway through and so far I am not impressed. I really want to like this game but I'm ready to quit. I almost quit the other game too though, so I'll give this a rest and try again later.

I'll save my criticisms and reserve judgement until then. But let me say this: It seems abstract and insufficiently scientific.

Reply

@J-PuP

The problem you describe is what I consider to be the fatal flaw in this game: If you are one millimeter off in your placement, the bridge can collapse regardless of the merit of the design.

I do not like trashing games and with the exception of a constructive criticism now and then, I basically live by the "If you can't say anything nice..." rule.

But I am a fan of bridge-building games and I gave up on this one. I know others welcomed it, but the lack of a grid where parts "snap in" is a major design flaw in my opinion. Sorry, but I hated this game. Big thumbs down for me.

HINT: On levels where you are building above ground (as opposed to above a pit) such as level 13 you can just stick steel pillars into the ground and they will hold up the bridge ;-)

Reply

Best solution so far (SIMPLEST and CHEAPEST, EASIEST to duplicate) to level 20. All you have to do is make sure the chest lands on the middle (strongest shock absorbing) 'point' of the bridge. Use the metal girder to slow it down and help position it.

Actually, this is a browser that NEVER seems to crash. It's Mac only, so if it's crashing on a Mac then look no further!

It's called camino.

Basically a blend of firefox and safari, which runs much faster than both =)

Actually, the steel is very versatile.

You use it to make the supports MUCH more solid, and for falling chests it's very solid, too. For the level with 3 falling chests and 3 elephants, just make a simple bridge and prop it up with steel bars. Simple, easy, cost effective.

It's good for the challenges, and holds much more weight than wood. It can be much longer, too.

However, unless you have to transport something VERY heavy or stop something dropping, it's better to go with wood walks, and steel in the critical areas.

For most falling objects, with money, build a buffer above the bridge to lower the impact (good for level 21, I believe).

If this helped anyone, I will smile.

For level 20 - Easiest way possible. Spent literally hours on this one, and the bridge kept breaking...See spoiler...

Build your bridge so it is really strong and will hold up the weight of the two men with their boxes, then on the very top with the highest nodes, build a high triangle with steel connectors /\ and lay a steel walkway from the top going as far to the right of the ledge as possible so the box falls off the ledge and lands on the ground beside your bridge. In order for the triangle to not break when the box hits it, I suggest building it so the point is a little to the left, so the box doesnt hit the point, but rather a little down the right side of the walkway.

Yes, I also think level 18 is broken or something. I tried every solution and none worked. The chest breakes everything. Maybe it is a case of very specific building order and placement, but I could not get it working. *snap* and the platform is broken. I'd love to see a video for some solutions. ;)

Anonymous October 17, 2009 3:20 AM

I tried copying all of the level 18 solutions and couldn't get it to work.

However, one "slide" method I tried did divert the chest's fall a little closer to the cliff edge before snapping, which gave me an idea. I then made a second platform that came out to where the chest fell before the slide broke. The slide would still be crushed into oblivion and fall into the water, but it moved the chest and slowed it down enough for the second platform to catch it. It wasn't an efficient use of funds, but it at least got the job done.

Some of you are asking, "Is steel really that useful?" The walkthrough doesn't have a lot about it and it also seems to fall just after being built.

Well, I just can't get how everyone's steel bridges fall. Mine almost never do, and I have earned 14000 spare money through the game using steel as soon as I get it. So I can't see why people say it's expensive and not worth it :S

narcosynthesis March 15, 2010 11:53 AM

Level 18 is definitely doable, as I have completed it...

My trick was to make a few disposable pieces - the chest falls and snaps a few pieces of walkway, which slow the chest enough so that a floor below can catch it safely.
