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!

One of the best bridge/tower building puzzle games of all time. Even those who don't understand physics or the construction process will get a handle on this because the ability to connect the balls together is so intuitive. The devs did a great job of simplifying a complex process. The game runs from very simple to absolutely difficult, and near the end you'll find yourself restarting levels many times in order to successfully finish them. There are some special achievement like building a bridge with only so many balls that add more complexities to the game that I really enjoyed. The graphics are gorgeous and I love the artstyle that is used. A must play for all puzzle genre lovers.

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- Graphics are still not outdated, still looks very nice and clean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 best puzzle games I have ever played. The music, the art and the physics make this game a must buy. ~10/10

World of Goo is a very competent puzzle game with extremely predictable and efficient physics… You job is to construct a variety of structures using different types of goo to rescue other goo balls along the way and reach the level exit… In some ways this game reminded me a little bit of ‘Lemmings’ where you occasionally have to sacrifice some of your goo balls to allow other goo’s to escape the level… It just had that vibe to it! Overall it is a great game if you enjoy puzzle games and I am sure it will push you to find the most effective way to complete stages… Personally I absolutely hate this game, but I hate most puzzle games so my personal feelings are irrelevant.
