Both games are excellent at spelling out their main gameplay hook right in the title, so it’s no surprise Bridge Constructor Portal lets you construct bridges and use portals. Bridge Constructor Portal combines “the laws of structural engineering and technology straight from Aperture Laboratories” to create a standalone game.
