Description: Link is a modern take on a classic bridge-building game from the 1980s. Build bridges using wood and steel girders, and in more advanced levels, with stone blocks and rope cables. With 100 levels, Link will provide you with days of enjoyment and frustration.

As a 19th-century industrialist, you're building trains across the great West. The expansion of America depends on the delivery of coal, lumber, crates, animals, and of course passengers across a variety of valleys, ditches, waterways, and canyons.

Link uses principles of civil engineering to create stable structures. Creating bridges using randomly-connected materials will probably result in a lot of casualties. Instead, you'll need to think like a designer. Will a rectangular or triangular girder structure provide less strain on the girder joints? Does it make more sense to attach cables near the ends, or near the middle? If there is no place to attach cables, what type of structure can you build on which to attach cables?
