About the 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!

This is honestly one of my favorite games of all time. Addictive, physics-based gameplay is coupled with the most amazing soundtrack and stitched-together with humor, satire, morality, and just enough of a storyline to make you think. Equally fun on PC and Android/tablet. Grab the demo, I assure you you'll end up purchasing.

World of Goo (Originally developed in 2008 for the Nintendo Wii) came out in 2009 for the PC by small indie developer 2D Boy, and it's one of the games that started the indie game craze of the 2010s.

Great music, it's catchy and always fits the mood of the puzzle you're on.

Wack story, I honestly can't tell if this game is trying to send me a message about how evil corporations are, or that finding any source of energy won't matter if big business is still around. Either way telling the story through painted signs is kind of dumb. I think a narrator would have fit the game better.

The art design is lame to me, but some people might enjoy its jaggedness because it fits the story.

The game physics were very well developed for such a small development team.

The majority of the puzzles were challenging and manageable, but there were a few puzzles that were so hard that I honestly couldn't see anyone getting through them without using a YouTube guide.

No replay value whatsoever unless you're an achievement hunter.

The World of Goo corporation tower game isn't very enjoyable, it's really just a boring mini-game.

I would recommend getting this game if it's on sale for $5 or less.

The game automatically adjusts to a 800 X 600 screen resolution. If you decide to run it full screen , you have to manually override the config.txt file (There's a guide on the World of Goo steam page).

Overall it's a 7.5/10

World of Goo is to this day one of the finest indie games one can find.
It is, in my opinion, one of _the_ best physics-based logic games currently available.

It looks great, plays great and is overall an amazing and unique experience due to many factors. It does have some flaws, but they are minor and almost insignificant.

A one-of-a-kind setting, quirky and strange humor, a challenge to both strategic and quick thinking. What else would you need?

Highly recommended.
