World Of Goo HD
We get our hands dirty with the sticky iPad game you won’t be able to put down
World Of Goo had made its iPad debut amid a blaze of critical acclaim. First released for PC and Nintendo Wii in 2008, it immediately garnered top review scores, won tons of awards and went on to sell by the bucketload, all without an expensive marketing campaign.
Made by independent developers Kyle Gabler and Ron Carmel, it’s a true indie success story and feels right at home on the iPad. There’s something about the way it plays on iPad too.
Though fundamentally unchanged from its original incarnation, it feels like it was supposed to be played on the iPad’s touch screen all along.
The idea is to build a bridge or tower by stringing together a series of sticky goo balls in order to reach a pipe at the end of the level.
All remaining goo balls then move along the gooey structure and into the pipe. There’s a minimum number of goo balls you have to rescue, meaning you have to build the structure as efficiently as possible so as not to waste any. Which is easier said than done, given the way in which bridges and towers behave, swaying in the wind and collapsing under gravity.
It takes a sharp and creative mind to overcome these challenges, particularly on the later levels, but it’s always nothing less than great fun.
A completely original game that’s a pleasure to play around with.
