    What is Bridge Builder Racer? (TL;DR down below)
    In Brigde Builder Racer you'll have to get from point A to point B. It uses mechanics from the game Bridge Constructor, were you have to build your own bridge which uses physics to calculate if everything is possible. In Bridge Builder Racer, we skip the physics for the bridge and you'll get physics on your car, which you can control like the game Trails. Get crazy with you creations within your budget ;-)!

    Build Phase
    There are 2 phases in the game. The first phase being the build phase, were you'll have to build your bridge (again, without physics) within your budged. Each level has a different budged and challenging environment to beat. The controls are fairly easy; click from point to point to create your bridge, if you'd like you can also drag 'n drop, like so:

    Race Phase
    After the build phase it's time to try and use your builded bridges to get from point A to B by controlling your car. The controls are fairly easy and work the same way like Trails (WASD, or arrow keys) like so:

    TL;DR:
    The game is heavily based on both Bridge Constructor together with Trails mechanics. You'll have to build the bridge from point A to point B and use your car to race over it. The bridge doesn't have any physics involved, so you can get crazy with your creations!

    Some levels:




    Thanks for checking it out, and again, I would love to hear some feedback! I'm planning on uploading a playable demo with a couple levels soon :)!

    Hello again everyone!

    I've updated the car physics system, aswell as made a few extra levels!
    Stay tuned for a playable demo soon :)

    In the old car physics, the speed limit would make the car not go beyond it. Meaning you were unable to go down a steep slope to increase velocity.

    The old system looked like this:

    The new system will unlock more variety for levels to come!
    The new system looks like this:

    Thanks for checking it out!

    So the grid will go away if you want to race over the builded bridge. If you reach the finish line you've completed the level. If not you may have to build again using the grid.
