World of Goo

 

Puzzle games are rarely as emotional, funny, and engaging as World of Goo. In its understandable core, you'll just build structures by connecting living goo balls-the circles latch out arms to grab their close-by neighbors, creating elaborate...

Creative, fundamental building puzzle. Off-kilter story and humor hung over puzzle foundation. Extra ways to play after finishing the game. Vibrant art conveys emotion. Works great on midrange and older Macs. Bug-free in our sessions when playing in...

Have to change a hidden file to play at higher resolutions than 800 by 600 pixels, which can cause a temporary visual bug

World of Goo's funny, emotional story and solid puzzle premise form an excellent, unique game.

World of Goo is a quirky and challenging puzzle game. The lackluster multiplayer and incoherent narrative may turn off some players, but others will find the challenging game play and unique aesthetic compelling. Though the later puzzles can be too...

Review: World of Goo

 

World of Goo is a trippy puzzle game that pushes your knowledge of physics to its gooey limits in a post-modernistic setting. Fun, quirky, and highly-addictive, World of Goo is one of the most entertaining puzzle games to come to the Mac in years.

Clever gameplay ; challenging ; entertainingly weird

Soundtrack can be irritating ; lackluster multiplayer

Divided into five chapters and a loose story about a World Goo Corporation that transforms the self-aware Goo into things like beauty cream, World of Goo has hours of amusing, challenging, and just plain weird missions to play through

Loved this game on PC and have actually beat most of the levels multiple times. The iPad version is even more fun since it adds a new level of difficulty with touch coordination. The multiple-touch is a nice feature unique to iPad and could never be...

Best game. Do not hesitate to buy. Must have. If you like physics puzzles games then this will be your favorite by far.

World of Goo and iPad were made for each other!

 

I have been waiting for this one to arrive since the iPad launched. Worth the wait. Worth the price. Worth your time. Exactly what I had hoped for.

Consumer review by:

WoW!!! That's all I can say

 

This is the first time I have ever played this game. Coming from someone who hasn't played it with a mouse, I don't know how you all did it. It's like this game was made for the ipad. It is an awesome game and well worth the $9.99 price tag. You will...

Definitive version of this creative landmark

 

The classic goo-based construction game is better than ever thanks to multitouch. Perfect for solving the puzzles with family and friends. Always sets the mood.
