You Can’t Stop Progress…

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.

Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Looking at the general quality-to-budget and time-to-staff ratios of games in general and specifically games on Wii it would be easy to assume that the days of the lone coder producing anything of value or interest are far gone. Even first-party titles by the often heralded Nintendo today all too often show low production values (Wii Play), rehashed and tired gameplay and graphics (Mario Kart Wii, Animal Crossing: City Folk) even though they are made by such a large corporation.

But then there's World of Goo, a two-man project (2D Boy's Kyle Gabler and Ron Carmel) that's innovative and beautiful, has great Danny Elfman-ish music and sound-design reminiscent of Loco Roco. It's genuinely funny - the humor, a bit dark at times (a la Braid or Psychonauts) and contains many Internet-community and computing references (similar to that in the new Sam & Max episodes and Portal) and - if not braking the 4th wall - then at least tapping it. The level-design brings Lemmings to mind.

The general idea is to use the titular Goo balls to build a physics-enforced structure to a pipe somewhere on the level through which the remaining goo-balls can escape. In standard puzzle-game fashion you are gradually presented with new an varying challenges both in terms of the environments and through new goo-balls with different properties such as those that can jump, are flammable or detachable.

Through-out the game you are accompanied by the mysterious sign-painter. Hints and story elements are presented in a Braid/Portal-esque way, partly through the environments but mainly by the sign-painters posts. These are often funny and much like the levels themselves comments on society and pop-culture, bringing greater depth to the game and making you really feel the plight of the poor goo balls...

5.0 out of 5 stars The best game on WiiWare April 22, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Wii has a lot of good games, but most are overlooked. The same probably happened to this awesome puzzle game, World of Goo.

The fun is in using the remote to experiment with the little goo caracters and then using them to form a connection to the exit. As levels progress, the Goo's get different properties that add a lot of variety to the game. Up to 3 friends can use a Wiimote and help with the levels, making this a great co-op experience. I had a lot of fun with my friends, and even non gamers who like to point out solutions that often work!

Anyone who enjoys a good brain teaser and just plain old fun should download this as soon as they can.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Wii Ware title yet April 22, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Lately I've been underwhelmed by many of the Wii Ware titles out there, but if this is the new direction that Nintento is taking with the platform, I say keep it coming! This is one of the most innovative games out there, regardless of platform (although the use of the Wii wand does give the game a more organic feel than twiddling buttons would). Like any good game, it's easy to learn yet hard to master. Also, the physics of the game are nearly real-world perfect. You get a fantastic amount of bang for your buck on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny April 28, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has the polish that most games lack. The gameplay is creative and simple but diverse. World of Goo is excellent and can be picked up by all types of players. To top it off the developers are friendly. There's also, Linux and Windows versions which are all DRM free available for download [...]. The WiiWare version is great because up to 4 people can control the goo balls at once.

Buy it now, you won't regret it.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
WiiWare is a platform that hasn't had a whole lot of great games yet. Sure, there have been some decent titles available for download, but in all honesty most of the games available were thoroughly mediocre, and even the good ones weren't necessarily groundbreaking. At the time, WiiWare almost appeared to be something just tacked on the Wii Shop Channel for the sake of having original games available through the Internet like PS3 and Xbox 360 have... but then a wacky little puzzle game called World of Goo came along, and all that was about to change...

World of Goo is a puzzle game, and all the levels have just about the same goal: build up your mass of goos to reach the pipe, which will suck up any remaining goos, and if you collect enough goos you win the level. It sounds simple enough, but World of Goo thrives on mixing a simple goal with some challenging scenarios. You will sometimes have to build over dangerous obstacles or even float your goos to your destination. The variety of ways to clear each level makes it so the game never gets old, and even up to the very end the game feels totally fresh and exciting.

To help the game retain that fresh feel there are also many types of goos to work with and learn about. Your average goo will stick to two or more goos nearby when placed, but special types of goos can be reattached, resist spikes, or stick to any moving object indefinitely, to name a few. These are all introduced to you at a steady pace throughout the game to keep it fresh without overwhelming you. The only disadvantage to all the types of goos is perhaps World of Goos' only true flaw, and that is that it's sometimes hard to grab a particular type of goo.

Cool building game, lota of fun. Challenging OCD levels. Only bad side is that the music gets annoying with time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun and creative game, too short
I would love to see more games like this. Each level is essentially a sandbox puzzle in which you must create a path for goo balls to get to an intake tube. Read more
