World of Goo

Kids have been experimenting with the physics of building since they first put one block on top of another. This engaging game takes the challenge of defying gravity to gooey new levels of fun. Players construct towers, bridges and other structures out of wiggly (and very cute) gobs of goo in order to complete a series of puzzles of increasing complexity. Though it starts out simple enough, the challenges quickly get complicated, and tweens and teens (not to mention their parents) will likely get the most out of the addictive game play.
