Chronic Logic - Pontifex

Chronic Logic - Pontifex | railway training and gamification | Scoop.it

In Pontifex you design and test bridges. Pontifex uses a complex physics engine which allows the construction of many different types of bridges. Once your design is completed, you can test the strength of your bridge by sending a train across it. Depending on the quality of the bridge's design, the train will either pass over safely or plummet into the river below.

Digital Rail 's insight:

Like the look of this game for engineering learning. "Depending on the quality of the bridge's design, the train will either pass over safely or plummet into the river below!".
