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!

Incredibly charming puzzle game. Beautiful sound, graphics and very inventive game design. The Danny Elfman-esque soundtrack is complete magic and the whacky sense of humour had me smiling throughout.

Recommended to anyone who likes their games brimming with personality.

World of Goo is uniquely interesting, but not my cup of tea. A great game for a tablet or for younger kids with IQs above the average adult.

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.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: November 25, 2013
The goal is simple, yet changes every time. The game lasts long enough so as to not outstay it's welcome and the art style of the game is great.

For extra challenge every level has an "OCD" challenge. The OCD could be to complete the level in X seconds or it could be to use a trick to get an extra few balls that might not be immediately obvious.

The physics work, which you might think strange to include in a review of a physics based game... but I've played Bad Rats so I know what broken physics are!

It's the mother of all Indie games. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=313215979
Years ago there was this cool demo called "Tower of Goo" which I played for hours! It was directly an advert for this game. So I felt familar with the physics engine and the mainly game concept. You have to drag drops of goo which generate connections between them and lets you build up complex structures. These structures are flexible and react on the physics around them. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=313216017
You have to think a lot not to break down your structures and reach mostly above the tap. When it's done the tap changes to a kind of vacuum cleaner and sucks the rest of the goo drops into. Most challenging is after you finished a level to do it in OCD (Obsessive Completion Distinction) mode. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=314343308
That means to do it best and collect all max. possible goo drops. Which feels hard as playing golf and reach on every course an hole-in-one ...

"Gooey drops want to get back into the tap"

Like Somebody said before: It's the mother of all Indie games. Years ago there was this cool demo called "Tower of Goo" which I played for hours! It was directly an advert for this game.

If this game isn't considered a classic yet, it will be... it's that good.

- Graphics are still not outdated, still looks very nice and clean
- Soundtrack is still awesome, feels like it was uniquely designed for this game, very moody too.
- Game is very balanced in difficulty
- Connecting online doesn't seem to work anymore to compare tower heights. Boo hoo...
- Story is interesting, gameplay is addictive.

What more could you possibly want from a 69MB old game?

One of the most inventive and fun building games I've ever played. Get the soundtrack too, it is worth it.

Guide the goo. GUIDE THE GOO! I'm a big fan of tommorow corps games. In world of goo, you guide a variety of goo balls to the level exit by using them to form a structure that the others can traval along. This game feels like it should be played on a tablet but the mouse interface still works just fine. I finished this a couple of times, it's a class act.

Good
- everything
- cool leaderboard thingie
- soundtrack is excellent
Bad
- feels like it would be even better on a tablet
- except where getting an A+ result needs pixel perfect precision, those are annoying enough already

Recommended to young and old alike 5/5

This is an instant classic and a joy for all the family. Smart, cute, enticing, it’s a really good entry point for someone who isn’t used to play games, but willing to anyhow. The Lemmings of the 20th century.
