What you should know:
In the World of Goo, tiny goo balls are looking for a safe passage through—and it’s up to budding physicists to make it happen! Players must manipulate the tiny blobs of goo to create bridges, towers and more to help the little ooze balls reach their destination.
This science-centered puzzle game features a slimy landscape, full of dangers for the poor sludge balls looking for safe passage to oil-slick pipes. Sound easy? Passage for the goo balls requires that players pay attention; build bridges or towers that are too narrow and the constructions will collapse. Tap the screen to move the balls into place where they form the nodes of the building—similar to a virtual erector set. The overall game is structured like a book with four "chapters" that feature different scenes and scenarios, keeping kids interested in continued gameplay. Style and color scheme changes with each chapter and the compelling mini-plotlines feature fascinating villains like the evil Goop Corporation.
At times, your sentient slime has special properties to contend with; although, the balls are never free from the laws of physics or gravity. This complex and captivating brain game’s addictive gameplay ensures kids have fun while gaining a basic grasp of physics.
