Just when you thought there wouldn’t be any more construction antics left to simulate, mobile developer astragon Entertainment has once again brought a new heavy duty sim onto iPhone and iPad as well as smartphones and tablets using Android, this time with its sequel to 2014 hit Construction Simulator. Letting you command an extensive fleet of 36 original licensed vehicles and machines, Construction Simulator 2 aims to please those that don’t mind going a bridge too far.
Providing players with a prime opportunity to work their way across the fictive US state of Westside Plains in fully-realised 3D visuals, Construction Simulator 2 doesn’t shy away from the heavy real-life machinery which the game accurately brings to life. Operate massive cranes, load up construction materials, undertake precise gardening and even road construction works as you take control of licensed vehicles from Caterpillar, Liebherr, Palfinger, Bell, STILL, and ATLAS.
As well as building on site, Construction Simulator 2 adds an extra layer of depth by offering you the means to literally build your own construction company from the ground up. As you progress through the game, you’ll gather experience points before investing them in the skills and attributes most important to you. Construction Simulator 2 aims to provide players with a “riveting” experience in any way it can.
There are over 60 individual construction tasks to take part in, with each making use of realistic steering controls that help to further round out the simulation factor.
