Are you looking for a complex plot? What about spectacular movie files or celebrity voice acting? The reason why I ask is because if you answer yes to either one of the questions listed above, World of Goo is definitely not a game for you. On the...

What is World of Goo? Thats a good question. It actually is a physics construction game in a comic design. You can play through different levels and youll face lots of different and sometimes difficult problems. Your opponents are wind, water and...

If a game's title was in any way linked to its quality then World of Goo was always destined for greatness. There's something delightfully innocent and silly about the idea of goo that raises a smile in these dark, depressing times so show me a...

World of Goo is a very well-made game considering that it was created by only two people. However, that is not to say it is perfect. Sometimes picking a goo ball can be troublesome as unused goo will usually flow throughout the entire structure,...

This is a game that will make you hold your breath, and curse at your monitor (I have since apologized to my LCD). I like that it is simple in design, but deep and complex in completion of objectives. Replaying a level gives you the chance to hone the...

World of Goo is a brilliantly innovative puzzle game, created by independent developer 2D Boy. Using some excellent physics and with high production values, the company has certainly pulled out all the stops. The surreal two-dimensional World of...

World of Goo is a trippy puzzle game that pushes your knowledge of physics to its gooey limits in a post-modernistic setting. Fun, quirky, and highly-addictive, World of Goo is one of the most entertaining puzzle games to come to the Mac in years....

The goal is usually to build a structure to transport your precious globules to a pipe elsewhere in the level, avoiding obstacles such as spikes and windmills. Constructing structures such as teetering towers and bridges is intuitive and satisfying,...

Fun with physics. Icky, sticky fun for all the family. If youre sick of the same old PC games, well, join the club. Oh, look! Another first person shooter set in a bleak future where your character has mysterious special abilities. Goody! Yet...

World of Goo: players progress through 50 levels. ANOTHER great example of how the most interesting and innovative games will increasingly come from the independent fringe rather than risk-averse major publishers, World of Goo is a delight. This...

The World of Goo, by independent game studio 2DBoy, is a quirky puzzle-solving video game unlike just about anything else on the market. The premise is simple, although a bit bizarre. You are confronted with a colony of mysterious "Goo Balls" who like...

Over the coming weeks, youll probably hear a lot of people call World of Goo "this years Portal," and not without reason: Both are ingenious physics-based puzzle games with an exceptional amount of personality and wit. But its just as easily...

Today marks the release of World of Goo on PC, a game that WiiWare owners have been playing since Monday. WiiWare/PC releases are becoming more and more the norm these days, ranging in quality from Eternity's Child to Strong Bad's Cool Game For...

World of Goo is bubbling with ideas. Born from a student project to create a game in just seven days, the original’s single mechanic was the ability to pick up little black goo-balls and place them near one another to form wobbling structures of...

International Review By Spieletest on 89

World of Goo ist das etwas andere Spiel. Doch es macht einfach nur süchtig und es ist ein neues Spielprinzip, was es in dieser Form noch nicht gegeben hat! Der Entwickler 2D Boy hat sich soviel einfallen lassen, dass man aus dem Staunen nicht...
