'Bridge Constructor Portal' Launches on Mac App Store for $9.99

Headup Games today announced that its Portal spin-off game "Bridge Constructor Portal" is now officially available for players to buy on the Mac App Store for $9.99 [Direct Link]. The game first launched on December 20 on the iOS App Store, Google Play Store, and Steam.

The Mac App Store version of the game is priced to match the other $9.99 desktop version on Steam, coming in at $5 more than the iPhone/iPad app's $4.99 price tag [Direct Link].


Bridge Constructor Portal is a fusion of the Bridge Constructor and Portal franchises, tasking players with building bridges to connect pathways in order to safely traverse large pits and avoid falling to their death. These puzzles are blended with Portal's Aperture Laboratories setting, items, and characters. Elements from Portal include the companion cube, repulsion and propulsion gels from Portal 2, and GLaDOS's narration through all of the player's successes and failures.
As a new employee in the Aperture Science test lab, it's your job to build bridges, ramps, slides, and other constructions in 60 test chambers and get the Bendies safely across the finish line in their vehicles.

Make use of the many Portal gadgets, like portals, propulsion gel, repulsion gel, aerial faith plates, cubes, and more to bypass the sentry turrets, acid pools and laser barriers, solve switch puzzles, and make it through the test chambers unscathed.
Now that the game is available across mobile and desktop devices, Headup Games, ClockStone Software, and Valve are looking toward its release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One "very soon." You can visit the Mac App Store today to download Bridge Constructor Portal [Direct Link], and it can also be downloaded for Apple computers through Steam.

IGN has a written review with a few short looping clips embedded in it, but no full blown video review as far as I can see:

Using Metal for graphics? Maybe not necessary for good performance in this case and while easier said than done, I do feel it's time to move on from OpenGL on macOS if possible. Or am I wrong? Maybe not needed (yet) for less demanding games.

On the App Store it says ”OS X 10.6.6 or later” for the game while on Steam it says ”Minimum OS X 10.9”.
Guess we at least can be certain it's not using Metal, but some version of OpenGL.

Probably because Steam doesn't support 10.7 lion and lower

You’re not wrong, Metal-optimized games perform almost identical to Windows games on the same hardware.

I would still rather see Vulkan but Metal is better than the outdated OpenGL.

Unfortunately, other apps still need better OpenGL support to do things that Metal doesn’t do like the virtualization tools.

I have it on the iPhone X, great game. I wouldn’t worry about getting it on the most powerful device you have, but one you have with you a lot. The last level I did took me a few days to complete and I kept dipping in and out, trying different ideas.
