Bridges – Connect the Islands – Puzzle Game



In Bridges, you are presented with a set of islands distributed across the playing area. Each island contains a number. Your aim is to connect the islands together with bridges, in such a way that:

  • Bridges run horizontally or vertically
  • The number of bridges terminating at any island is equal to the number written in that island
  • Two bridges may run in parallel between the same two islands, but no more than two may do so
  • No bridge crosses another bridge
  • All the islands are connected together
