IMG_0103Paper Bridge takes the concept of bridge building, made incredibly popular with world of goo, and couples that concept with the sketch movement running crazy through the iDevice gaming world. This marriage works incredibly well, and with a few adjustments Paper Bridge stands to be a top notch game.

The physics behind this game follows along the same style as games before it. Lines connect from dot to dot and supporting beams are constructed to ensure a sound foundation. Fail and you start again. Succeed and you move onto the next level.

Graphically the game is spot on with the sketch movement. Control wise, the game needs a little work. The pinch zoom has a few response issues, and scrolling around different parts of the level was non-existent for me, requiring me to do delicate bridge development from a bird’s eye view.

I played World of Goo until I beat every ounce of that game, so Paper Bridge is something I have a lot of interest in. If you’ve tried World of Goo, or are just looking for a new genre of games to check out, you won’t be disappointed with the puzzle heavy game play of Paper Bridge. Its achievement structure through OpenFeint makes it that much more exciting.
