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.

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

Recommended!

The PC indie title hits Nintendo's Wii Ware platform - hooray!

An intelligent, innovative, ingenious and beautifully designed action/puzzle game. Whether you have a PC or a Wii, you need to get your hands on some Goo.

One of the best games of all time.

 

World of Goo is more then just a game, it occupies that rare space that can only be defined as an experience. It is completely immersive. The soundtrack is grade A. The kind of thing that I enjoy listening to on my iPod. The art is beautiful and well...

Best version yet

 

I have the wii port and now the iPad version. This feels like the way it was originally intended to be played. Graphics are stunning and the control is incredible.

Consumer review by:

If you love the original, this is even better.

 

Some games are just meant for the touch screen interface. This is a beautiful adaptation of the original.

Amazing!

 

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