Please don’t let the monochromatic nature of these screenshots fool you, as The Bridge is one of the most advanced games that you will ever play. The issue isn’t why it isn’t in full color, but why no one has ever thought of a game like this before.
The Bridge is inspired by the works of M.C. Escher, and if you haven’t heard of him then you have probably seen some of his works. They are black-and-white representations of odd buildings with impossible architecture, not to mention impossible-to-exist shapes.
The game is about a character who is wandering through odd worlds, and the object is to simply get to the exit door. The issue is the door has to be standing up straight like a normal door in order for you to open it. Why is that important, you say? Because in this game, you have the power to spin the world on its axis! Seriously, you can spin the room so that the wall is the floor, and even more to walk on the ceiling.
The issue is that when you spin the room, gravity still applies. It is possible to spin until you fall of the edge of the weird limbo world that you are in. Also, there are levels where there is this evil ball that will roll over you if you are not careful. There are also evil vortexes, and this inverse thing that I won’t bother to explain.
By the way, if you miss up somehow, you don’t have to start the level all over again. Instead, the game actually has a rewind button so you can start off at the last second where you messed up.
Also, there is one level called “The Intersection” that I must have spent hours on. My son solved it in less than a half-hour. I’m not going to analyze that.
Anyway, I highly recommend The Bridge as my son and I were addicted to it. You can get it on the Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Ouya, but you’ll have to wait until August 20th before it comes to the Wii U. You can read more about The Bridge on the official website.
