After conquering the PC, Mac, Wii and the iOS market, 2D Boy’s World of Goo is ready to rock the Android world. World of Goo burst onto the scene in 2008 and garnered rave reviews thanks to its simple but addictive and smart gameplay, storytelling, and visual design.
World of Goo for Android is a massive 47 MB download, which will undoubtedly annoy many users. However, once you get the installation out of the way, it’s all smooth sailing. If you have played World of Goo before, it will be a familiar experience. However, the game’s re-playability ensures that everyone will be able to get their money’s worth.
The objective of the game is extremely simple. In each level you are provided with different kinds of balls of goo. You have to use these balls to build a structure for carrying unused goo balls to the destination pipe. Each level involves a different terrain, and you often have to use your wits to surmount hills, cross valleys, and scale walls.
Unlike most other popular games (Angry Birds, Cut the Rope etc.), World of Goo has decided to skimp the ad-supported free version. Instead 2D Boy wants Android users, who typically spend less than iOS users, to shell out $4.99 for the game. However, World of Goo will be available at a special launch price of $2.99 until December 4.
