How is the Bridge game?
Does it feel accurate? I've been interested in finding games with real-world physics, materials, behaviors, etc.

The iron and steel seem right.

Cables seem a bit strong.

Only complaint would be suspension bridges, you build under zero g and when you go to test it everything sags, there's no way to tension the main suspension cables. I've made one suspension bridge that looks right by using hydraulics to pull the main cables, so the suspension part looks real but the rest doesn't...

I guess they can get the physics good since you are limited to building on a grid system, you can't just put stuff where ever you want.

I've built some crazy bridges with it. screenshots here:

Lot of fun for under $25. I just got the expansion pack that adds a turntable, dessert canals, and 20 more challenges. But there's a bug where none of the text is showing up, not that you really need it, I got through all the expansion levels without reading the descriptions.
