About This Game

World of Goo is a multiple award winning physics based puzzle / construction game made entirely by two guys. Drag and drop living, squirming, talking, globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins, and giant tongues. The millions of Goo Balls that live in the beautiful World of Goo are curious to explore - but they don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.
  • Mysterious Levels - Each level is strange and dangerously beautiful, introducing new puzzles, areas, and the creatures that live in them.
  • World of Goo Balls - Along the way, undiscovered new species of Goo Ball, each with unique abilities, come together to ooze through reluctant tales of discovery, love, conspiracy, beauty, electric power, and the third dimension.
  • The Sign Painter - Someone is watching you.
  • World of Goo Corporation - Congratulations! World of Goo Corporation is the Global Leader in Goo and Goo Related Product, including World of Goo Corporation Trademark Brand Soft Drink Beverage and World of Goo Corporation Trademark Brand Facial Exfoliating Lotion. Succulent!
  • Massive Online Competition - Human players around the world compete in a living leaderboard to build the tallest towers of goo in World of Goo Corporation's mysterious sandbox. World of Goo Corporation is contractually obligated to state that everyone is a winner and is enthusiastic to celebrate everyone's tower building opportunities equally.

    Congratulations, and good luck!

"Während es keiner Schwierigkeit unterliegt, jedes physische Erlebnis aus Empfindungen, also psychischen Elementen aufzubauen, ist keine Möglichkeit abzusehen, wie man aus den in der heutigen Physik gebräuchlichen Elementen: Massen und Bewegungen (in ihrer für diese Spezialwissenschaft allein dienlichen Starrheit) irgend ein psychisches Erlebnis darstellen könnte." Ernst Mach. Erkenntnis und Irrtum. p.12

Well, with epigraph like that, I guess I should translate it... In short, Mach - a very famous, genius physicist - thought what it is not possible to see (darstellen) of any psychic experience from common physical elements like movement and masses.

There, in this game, we observe (and sometimes control) movement of masses and surely most of us can see joy in it. I guess that joy is a psychic experience, and of good kind. So I feel sorry Mach can't see this game. It's wonderful.
Pure pleasure, without violence, insolence and repeatability, so common in modern pop culture, and gaming in the first place.

10/10 gooballs. Epic casual game.

While the game is good and fun, the levels ramp up quickly to get to the equivalent of trying to balance an elephant on a piano wire -- it's extremely difficult to figure out exactly where you need to place something to keep the whole thing from falling in on itself. Still a good time, though.

I couldn't get into it. Sounds like I'm in the minority, though.

Okay game that offered me little entertainment value. Recommended if you like physics puzzles and don't mind endlessly retrying levels until you succeed.

It's a good game. Not a masterpiece, but what's most admirable is the physics programming that went into the game - nothing short of incredible -, and the quirkiness of the game and story as a whole. A lot more fun if you're OCD for completionism. You'll get what I'm saying when you play it.

Surprisingly simple gameplay mechanics become unexpectedly elaborate. The gameplay design, artistic direction, musical score are all top notch and you will be hard pressed to find other games of its quality. Story is not a focal point, but even that is well done in a low key manner with some cool twists. Suprisingly cheap ($1.49) for one of the best gaming experiences you will have. After reading this, the word surprise in relation to this game should not be in your vocabulary. Buy the game. Currently, the game is worth it regardless of whatever price it is set at now.
