Flow Free: Bridges features

  • Over 900 levels available in Free Play mode
  • 10 different board sizes
  • Starter, Challenge, Bonus, Classic, Mania, and Jumbo level packs
  • Strive for accuracy in Free Play using the fewest, most efficient moves
  • Strive for speed in Time Trial for the most and fastest solves
  • 20 scored Time Trial variants to choose from by board size and duration

It’s best to jump straight into Free Play mode to understand the game. Simply drag to connect matching colors with pipe, creating a flow. You solve each puzzle when the entire boards are covered. Pipes cannot cross or overlap, unless you use the bridges.

The top of the board displays the number of flows and moves. If you complete a board in the lowest amount of moves, you get a star.

If you think Free Play is too easy, try selecting a larger board or different level pack. The starter pack has 5x5 and 6x6 boards, but they can go up to 14x14 boards. You can also try the Time Trial mode to make things more difficult.

If you’re puzzled by some of the boards, you can ask for hints. You only have a handful of hints available until the game asks you to purchase more. You can buy 20 hints for $2.99 or five for $0.99.

Flow Free: Bridges is available at the Windows Phone Store for free. There’s an advertisement on top of the screen that doesn’t get in the way of gameplay, but it can be removed if you purchase any level pack for 99 cents. Since there are so many levels that you can play for free, you won’t be in a rush to buy any of the additional packs.
