|World of Goo is a very neat and cool puzzle-game, that can make you throw your monitor out through your window in frustration, and then when it finally clicks into place, you achieve a total bliss of emotions of conquering the challenge. And then it brings on a new one, slightly harder than the previous one. And its all starting again….|
To make a short story even shorter: you have a lot of blobs that moves around on a grid created by the same blobs, where you can grab one blob and use it to extend the grid in any directions, where wind and gravity makes it hard to collect as many as possible into a drainpipe (not unlike the old but still famous ‘Lemmings’ game), and, as the game website states: ” The millions of Goo Balls who live in the beautiful World of Goo don’t know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.”
This game has become one of my favorite puzzlegames of all time, and the complexity and ‘insane’ solutions you have to find in order to complete a course, mixed in with a lot of humor, makes this game a fresh breath of air in a gaming world where everything is about grafic, grafic and even more grafic. (This game is in 2D).
Test it out, you will not regret it.
