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!

I always wanted to get the full game back when I only had the demo on my Wii, and boy does it feel good to be playing the whole release! My only gripe is that selecting which ball I want to use and where I want to put it can be a bit finniky, but overall this game is deeply satisfying.

Oh man, World of Goo.

This game is a relic of fantastic game design.

To put things simply, this game puts you in a world requiring you to build builds and complex constructs to overcome obstacles and reach the end. The end result uses encompasses your construct allowing your "goos" to reach the end pipe, with plenty of spare and win.
While super simple, this game can be frustratingly hard to beat. But once you beat the level, you are overwhelmed with a feeling of accomplishment. On top of beating the level, you can do what is known as an "OCD" challenge. Typically these result in a time trial, overabundance of goos or the least amount of moves possible.

This game's physics constantly challenge you and require you to use your own intuition and reasoning to beat the level.

Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this game. It is cute, has an engaging storyline (which I won't spoil), and has the best engine for a physics-based puzzle game I've ever played.

I bought this game for the thrilling multiplayer that was promised by the developers. The closest thing I got was my mom watching over my shoulder as I played.

World of goo is a fun little puzzle game where you try to build a structure of goo in order to reach a pipe in each level. It has tons of different types of goo that are all different in some way it is incredibly addicting and has a nice soundtrack that does a good job of setting the tone for the levels. I do have some complaints though: There is a feature in the game that allows you to see other players stacking up in the mini game where you just stack up but this feature hasn't worked for me even once i went online and HUNDREDS of people had the exact same problem and i didnt even bother looking for more. and another thing that bugs me is the controls. You move the mouse to contol the cursor and left click to grab a goo ball and release to place. It works fine on most stages but when its a stage where you can remove already placed goo balls there have been so many times when i try to grab a goo ball and accidentally remove an already placed one and vice versa and the whole thing collapses and i have to start all over again it could have been easily fixed by using right click to remove placed ones and left click to grab non placed ones. Also there's no option to change the resolution which isnt a big deal at all but it would be nice to be able to play in HD

Great adorable fun for whiling away those hours spent doing nothing usually. The system is amazing and the atual physics that get involved make me giggle. It's so cute just watching them all fall over after I tried to build some outrageous tower.

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.

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 ...

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?

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.
