Build a bridge on a budget and make it secure enough for traffic to get safely across. 


There's a simulation game for almost anything you can think of -- flying planes, operating trains, power washing, running a hospital, farming, cooking and more. Bridge Constructor, from Headup Games, has been on the scene since 2011, but is now available in Apple Arcade's catalog of more than 230 games

Subscribers can find Bridge Constructor under App Store Greats with all content, updates and DLC (downloadable content) readily available. If you're not an Apple Arcade subscriber, you can snag Bridge Constructor for $2 in the App Store

Bridge Constructor is a bridge-building simulator where you work to become a successful engineer and architect. You must build bridges sturdy enough for traffic to make it across. If there's a flaw, the bridge will collapse and any vehicle trying to cross will plummet into the deep valleys, canals and rivers below.


Make your bridge as structurally sound as possible to avoid disaster.


The game has over 100 levels for you to refine your building (and budgeting) skills with different materials and stress tests. If you get stuck along the way, the game has built-in hints to help you think outside the box.

You can get a three-month free trial of Apple Arcade when you buy a new Apple device, or one month for free if you're signing up for the first time. To try the service out, open the App Store and tap the little joystick icon at the bottom of the screen. After any free trial, Arcade costs $5 per month.

The Apple One subscription bundle makes it more affordable to get up to six Apple subscription services, including Apple Arcade, for one price. The bundle ranges from $15 to $30 per month. 

Apple Arcade also offers deals through Verizon.
