World Of Goo To Make Its Smartphone Debut on the iPhone


After premiering as a downloadable title on the Wii back in 2008, 2D Boy’s award-winning World of Goo has been ported to home computers, the iPad, and now it will finally be making the jump to smartphones with the addition of an iPhone app.

2D Boy has announced that is has completed work on the game, and is just awaiting Apple to approve the app. Once it finally gets the go-ahead, the app will launch for only a buck for the first 24 hours it’s in the App Store, going up to around $3 afterwards (the iPad version fetches $5). Better yet, if you already paid for the iPad edition, you’ll get the iPhone version for free.

World Of Goo

The game invites you to build structures out of connected goo balls. Different ball types have varying properties, and by carefully (or maybe not so much) putting them together, you can create bridges, towers, and flying machines. With a twist of Lemmings, your goal is to somehow get your creation close enough to an exit pipe, so goo balls you haven’t used for construction have a chance to escape the level. Save enough, and you move on.

While control on the Wii was a little loose thanks to the Wiimote, the PC version really tightened things up, and touchscreen control should offer an even superior interface. When your tower is about to topple from being off-balance, you’ll be dragging goo balls around faster than you have time to think about.

Look for World of Goo for the iPhone in the App Store sometime soon.
