Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Although we comprehend this game's basic concept, the lack of a tutorial and vague help files keep us from truly understanding or enjoying it. In Road Construction, your goal is to build a road from point A to point B, which sounds easier than it actually is. The game forces you to use a minimum number of moves to build the road, so you can't just pick the quickest possible solution. However, we're not sure how the application calculates distance; in one instance, we had clearly built a highway well over the minimum required eight tiles, but our truck still didn't make it to its destination. Also, we're not sure why the vehicle often veers off the given path, and the very ambiguous help files didn't answer many of our questions. Apart from its mysterious gameplay, Road Construction offers no features other than the ability to turn off the music, and the graphics are mediocre at best. This game looks promising, but its goal needs to be more clear before we can recommend it.

Developer's Description

The goal of Road Construction is to build a road to connect two neighboring cities, so that a first vehicle, ready to start on your heels at the beginning of the game, can reach its goal. The vehicle has to run a minimum-given distance. As anybody knows, the more a road is long and loopy, the more it costs money, and the more the contractor is paid. When playing, you arrange blocks of different shapes on the tray to trace the way.
