Introduction:
Welcome to Bridge Constructor Stunts, a spinoff of the original Bridge Constructor title. In this game, instead of just building bridges to support the weight of various vehicles, you'll be constructing ramps, bridges, and landings, and in addition to that you'll actually be driving the cars through the course you build. Many of the same concepts carry over, such as the types of materials, working within a budget, etc. Now you've also got to take into account launching and landing your vehicle so that it doesn't explode. As far as achievements go, there is one for collectibles which involves progressing in the game, three miscellaneous achievements, and the rest are all cumulative. The collectibles are the only thing that make this game difficult really, so with a guide this game becomes very easy, and you'll end up grinding pretty much all of the cumulative achievements for a decent amount of time.

Step 1: Progress and Collect Bolts:
The first thing you'll want to focus on is progressing to level 5-2. You need to collect 25 bolts, and there is one in every level aside from a few levels in World 1. If you collect the bolt in every level, you'll have 25 after completing level 5-2, and then you don't need to worry about progressing any further. The "Hardware Store" achievement solution has video guides to make this as painless as possible.

Step 2: Miscellaneous Achievements:
Now is the time, if you haven't already, to get the three miscellaneous achievements. They are for doing five flips in one jump with the pickup truck, four flips in one jump with the dump truck, and doing a jump with seven seconds of hang time. These are very easy to get as long as you try them on the right levels. Refer to the "Eighteen-Hundred," "Heavy Rotation," and "One Giant Leap" achievement solutions, respectively, for where to unlock each of these.

Step 3: Grind Cumulative Achievements
At this point it's unlikely you've earned any of the cumulative achievements, although you may be close to a couple depending on how many tries each level took to finish. You're more than likely going to have 2-3 hours of grinding to do. Refer to the respective achievements for the best places to do each one and how to best combine the grind to shorten it as much as possible. This wraps up the last of the achievements.

Conclusion:
Bridge Constructor Stunts is a fun spinoff of the original game. The levels have a decent amount of variation, and as with the original game, the budgetary restrictions are what force you to be creative and think outside the box to meet all the requirements. This is essentially a puzzle game though, and as with any puzzle game you can just follow a guide to blow through all the levels, then you'll just be left with a decent grind. Nothing is too difficult though, so all in all it's a pretty fun and relatively simple completion.

There are 10 achievements with a total of 1000 points

  • Collect 25 bolts.

    To unlock this achievement, you'll need to collect a total of 25 unique bolts. Each level aside from a few in world 1 has a single bolt to collect in it. There are five worlds and each world has six levels with the exception of world 1, which has nine levels. So this achievement is the only one that actually requires you to progress through the game. The 25th bolt, if you collect them all, is obtained on level 5-2, so you'll have to get at least that far to unlock this achievement.

    The bolts themselves are in out of the way spots, usually either up very high or on a slightly different route than you'd intuitively think to take. In order to collect them, you not only have to touch them to grab them but then you also have to successfully finish the level. This means not only getting to the finish but also any other level requirements there are. Once the bolt is collected, it becomes transparent and faded, indicating it's been collected.

    Some levels are very easy to collect bolts on. Many of them just require you to build a kicker ramp that'll launch you high enough, and once you get the hang of it it's very easy to do each of these levels without a guide. Some levels, however, have ridiculous constructions to make to meet the level criteria and collect the bolt. Thankfully there are video guides for the levels with the first 25 bolts available.

    If you use these videos, definitely don't feel like you need to replicate each design to the smallest detail. Use them more of as a guideline for what type of structure to build as opposed to being identical to theirs. For instance, many of his kicker ramps have a "top" portion of wood to them, but I would always just build a simple ramp with wooden road and steel supports, nothing fancy. Another tip to make things easier when following the videos is to assemble the structure without worrying about how long each piece is. It's much easier to make it slightly smaller first and then press and hold on joints to move the structure around and shape it exactly how you want it. This technique is also extremely handy for fine-tuning a structure if you want to, for example, change how high or far you're launching.

  • Do 500 flips.

    This is a cumulative achievement across all levels and vehicle types. After collecting the bolts and obtaining the miscellaneous achievements, you'll definitely need to grind out flips. Refer to the "Insurance Nightmare" achievement solution for a good spot to grind this out.

  • Do a 5x flip with the pickup truck.

    As the description says, you need to do five flips (front or back) with the pickup truck in a single jump. There are a few levels where this is possible - basically all you need is a spot to build a steep ramp where there is also enough of a drop-off on the other side of it for you to fall. I got this on level 2-3 by building a straight bridge out far enough to get under the red beams overhead and then a steep ramp at the end. You should be able to launch up and over the concrete platform in the middle and land on the bottom of the other side, same level as the finish. The image below shows something like what I did.

  • Do a 4x flip with the dump truck.

    As the description says, you need to do four flips (front or back) with the dump truck in a single jump. There are a few levels where this is possible - basically all you need is a spot to build a steep ramp where there is also enough of a drop-off on the other side of it for you to fall. You're also going to need around second seconds of airtime to be able to get in four flips, meaning you'll be unlocking the "One Giant Leap" achievement at the same time as this.

    I got this on level 4-5 by building a steep ramp right at the start, leading up pretty high. I was then able to just hold down the button and launch into the air over the bolt, landing in the pit beneath it. In fact, my tires would just touch the orange box at the top of the screen where your score is displayed. I'd get second seconds of airtime per jump and have plenty of time to get in four flips. The image below shows what I did.

  • Destroy the pickup truck 250 times.

    This is a cumulative achievement and naturally can only be obtained with the pickup truck. First, you should collect all the bolts for the "Hardware Store" achievement. Second, you should obtain the three miscellaneous achievements. After that's all done, now it's time to grind out the cumulative achievements. I decided to do this in three steps.

    Step 1 - Stars

    First I grinded out the remaining stars I needed for "Reach for the stars" since I didn't need too many, plus it's very fast. Replay level 3-6 for this. You should already have it set up from collecting the bolt and beating the level, but the screenshot below shows how I had it set up for reference. You should be able to just hold and collect around 6-7 stars for sure. Don't waste time rolling backwards to go off the ramp, just press to restart as soon as you've gotten those first 6-7 stars. Rinse and repeat, and you should finish all 250 stars in less than 5-10 minutes.

    Step 2 - Pickup Truck Destructions

    After stars were done, I then focused on destroying the pickup truck 250 times. For this, I used level 3-2 with the following set-up:

    Just hold and go off the ramp at full speed. Hold either left or right to flip after you go off it, and you should be able to get in three flips. You'll also get three or so seconds airtime. When you hit the ground, you should hit at least one red barrel, which gives you 1000 points of destruction, and then your pickup truck will explode. This means you'll be making progress towards five achievements:

    • "Feeling Dizzy" - 500 flips
    • "Frequent Flyer" - 1 hour of air time
    • "Want on destruction" - 1000000 points of destruction
    • "Explosives Expert" - 250 red barrels
    • "Insurance Nightmare" - 250 pickup truck destructions

    For me, I finished "Insurance Nightmare" third, and still had destruction points and air time left to grind out. At that point I switched to Step 3. This step took around an hour.

    Step 3 - Air Time

    For this step, I replayed level 4-5 over and over the same way as in the "Heavy Rotation" achievement solution. There is another screenshot below for reference. This would get me 7 seconds of air time plus a ton of destruction points from all of the barrels and wood in the pit you land in. This step took somewhere in the range of 1-2 hours of grinding.

  • Collect 250 stars.

    This is a cumulative achievement across all levels and vehicle types. After collecting the bolts and obtaining the miscellaneous achievements, you'll definitely need to grind out stars. You should be pretty close though, so I recommend replaying level 3-6 after you've beaten it. The level should already be set up to get at least 6 stars from when you beat it, and I was getting 6 stars even before going off the ramp.

    So to speed it up, I'd start the level, hold down until I got the first 6 or so stars, then just hit to restart the level instead of waiting to roll backwards and go off the ramp. Doing this, I was able to wrap this achievement up in less than five minutes of replaying this level. Refer to the "Hardware Store" achievement solution, the fourth video at the 0:48 second mark. This shows the level construction for level 3-6 to quickly get 6 stars.

  • Gain 1000000 points through destruction.

    This is a cumulative achievement across all levels and vehicle types. After collecting the bolts and obtaining the miscellaneous achievements, you'll definitely need to grind out destruction points.

    Refer to the "Insurance Nightmare" achievement solution for a good spot to grind this out.

  • Destroy 250 red explosive barrels.

    This is a cumulative achievement across all levels and vehicle types. After collecting the bolts and obtaining the miscellaneous achievements, you'll definitely need to grind out red barrels.

    Refer to the "Insurance Nightmare" achievement solution for a good spot to grind this out.

  • Accumulate 1 hour of air time.

    This is a cumulative achievement across all levels and vehicle types. After collecting the bolts and obtaining the miscellaneous achievements, you'll definitely need to grind out air time.

    Refer to the "Insurance Nightmare" achievement solution for a good spot to grind this out.

  • Do a jump with 7 seconds of air time.

    Refer to the "Heavy Rotation" achievement solution for more information.
