Editors Didn't Like

  • It's still Bridge Constructor. Your mileage may vary
  • Occasional glitches, Poor editing tool, Portal tiein is halfbaked, Repetitive toward end
  • Most challenges stem from performing miniscule tweaks, Poor editing tool means you have to wait too long to test small tweaks, Story does little more than make obvious references to previous games, Bland visual design, Game-breaking bug killed my progress
  • Comedy feels a little too forced at times
  • Limited gameplay, Humor is a hit and miss
  • No scoring or leaderboards, No way to save solutions/replays
  • Writing is smirkworthy at best, Physics can be finicky, It's not Portal 3
