Editors’ Choice

It starts off as a tremendously tactile puzzle game, with you poking and stretching loveable little goo balls into extravagant shapes. But then? Then it gets weird, in the best possible way. We don’t want to spoil the surprise, so we’ll just say this - World of Goo is charming, surreal and totally brilliant.

The "demo" version is better


I bought World of Goo for iOS because I liked the free demo on the developer's site. After playing the full version for about an hour, I got stuck over and over again because the goo blobs just won't connect with 3 connections no matter how hard I press my finger to the screen. On the "demo" version for free, you can make up to 4 connections with red blobs instead of the icky black ones in this game. Also, the levels are all infuriatingly difficult and are no fun to play. It feels like I am taking a skills test and failing miserably over and over again rather that having fun like in the "demo".

The levels are not creative or playful in any sense. The goo is weaker and can only make 2 connections in this version which is a complete letdown for me after having fun with the "demo" of World of Goo.

Surely, you can skip levels, but I am yet to see a level that I enjoy with the dark and gloomy appearance of every level in every world. The free Adobe Flash version of this game (levels are different) is a lot more fun, but there is no save functionality. I understand that this game was updated to 64-bit to work with iOS 11, but I am having no fun with it even though I enjoy puzzle games like Forest Home and Splitter Critters.

Oddly fun!

The Tejer

I have had this game for years now, and I have played it on and off. The game itself is highly entertaining in all of its strangeness. Perfect game for those looking for a good challenge! Also, kudos to the developers for updating this game after nearly 4 years to keep it going strong!
