World of Goo

World of Goo

World of Goo is a physics based puzzle / construction game with a quirky sense of humour. The millions of Goo Balls that live in the beautiful World of Goo don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.

In this game, you have to connect balls of goo together to form makeshift bridges and towers to build a path, guiding the goo balls to the exit.

Everything is controlled by the mouse and the mouse button.

  • Realistic sound effects add to the game's wit and personality - yelping, cheering goo balls make every move an event
  • Atmospheric soundtrack: carefully chosen music tracks set the atmosphere for each level
  • Different types of goo have special abilities - some drip like water, some float like helium balloons, some are sticky and some are spike-proof. Engaging game design brings them all together to solve the most fiendish predicaments
  • Unique visual experience: brilliant design is achieved through vibrant and contrasting colours and beautiful graphics, giving a surreal cartoon feel
