Summary: Though the game itself is a great puzzle, it lacks rewards and a plot to engage the player. It requires that you save x many goo balls, but suggests that you save more. While this does present a new challenge, getting away with the minimum gives the same feeling of achievement as only using two goo balls out of one hundred. The "reward" is that the excess saved goo balls are able to be used in the free mode, where you participate in the construction of a tall structure.
Summary: fun cute game///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Summary: The mission is simple: you have funny looking goo droplets that can make structures out of triangles. You have to get the structure from point A to point B using some of your droplets. The game is challenging, but surprisingly not frustrating. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a light pass the time kinda game.
Summary: This game appears to be very simple with the same goal in mind for each level--to get all the goo balls up into the pipe. But it is also very challenging because with each level you have to figure out how you are going to build up the goo balls to reach the pipe. At first I was very frustrated with this game because no instructions or help files came with the game and I could not figure out what the goal was.
Excerpt: I love these sorts of quirky puzzle or adventure style games that come along every so often from game designers so much, and World of Goo is no different! World of Goo is basically a puzzle game in which you have some goo, and you have to get you goo from where ever you start on the level, to the exit (where ever that may be placed on the level).
Pros: addictive, fun, pretty to look at, great soundtrack and effects, challenging - CHEAP
Excerpt: World of Goo is the creation of indie game developer 2D Boy (a team consisting of two former EA employees), and was released in 2008. The game is available on PC, Wii, iOS and Android. It has also been made available on Steam, the popular digital download service. The game is essentially a puzzle game, with the objective being to create structures out of goo balls, in order to channel any remaining goo balls to the pipes that are at the end of every level.
Pros: Fun, addictive gameplay with colourful graphics .
Cons: Weak story detracts from the gaming experience .
Excerpt: At first glance, this looks easy. I'm not unduly worried about the dangerous looking spikes protruding from the floor, because these handy balloon balls will support the weight of my structure when gravity attacks its integrity. I start plucking the bustling black goo balls off the vine-like structure, their little eyes widening when selected. The first few go on fine, their viscous appendages reaching out and eagerly grasping adjacent goo balls.
