Publisher's Description

Pontifex is the official sequel to a game in which you design and test bridges. Pontifex uses a complex physics engine called the Immortal Engine which allows for many different types of bridges to be built. Once the design is completed you can test your bridge by sending a train across and watch as the train either passes over safely or plummets into the river below. The 3D engine lets you view your bridge from any angle including a first-person train view. Many different types of levels are included, from simple to complex, and a level editor lets you make your own levels to trade with other people.

I really enjoy playing this demo. Im a hardcore gamer and for some reason, I could not stop building bridges. The graphics are way better than I had expected. A friend and I could not stop laughing at the crazy, desructive designs we were coming up with. And it also felt rewarding when we could build a bridge without a single break.

The only problem I see is that if the train makes it across 1 time, It will always make it across the other 3 times without causing any additional damage. Of course this isn't true for a bridge that has a terrible design and half of the bridge falls apart on the first crossing.

And to JacobD, you must have a really old system or for some reason your system can't handle it.

This sim is excellent, a great improvement over the original Bridge Builder. I recommend the download to anyone who likes building things and watching them crumble.

This program sucks. It's way too lagged and for the concept? No one is going to play a game that is slower than the oldest Atari game still in existence. The software lags behind your movements and the controls are too difficult to master.

I'm not quite sure what crowd Pontifex is trying to entice, but this game definitely won't entice me into further downloads or purchases.
