IMPORTANT: This is a big game and requires either an iPad, or iPhone 3GS or newer, or a 3rd gen iPod Touch or newer. It must be downloaded over a Wi-Fi connection.

Beautiful and surprising, the millions of Goo Balls who live in the World of Goo are curious to explore - but they don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.

This is the FULL award winning game, now on iPad. Drag and drop living, squirming, talking, globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins, and giant tongues.

Mysterious Levels - Each level is strange and dangerously beautiful, introducing new puzzles, areas, and the creatures that live in them.

World of Goo Balls - Along the way, undiscovered new species of Goo Ball, each with unique abilities, come together to ooze through reluctant tales of discovery, love, conspiracy, beauty, electric power, and the third dimension.

The Sign Painter - Someone is watching you.

World of Goo Corporation - Congratulations! World of Goo Corporation is the Global Leader in Goo and Goo Related Product, including World of Goo Corporation Trademark Brand Soft Drink Beverage and World of Goo Corporation Trademark Brand Facial Exfoliating Lotion. Succulent!

Massive Online Competition - Human players around the world compete in a living leaderboard to build the tallest towers of goo in World of Goo Corporation's mysterious sandbox. World of Goo Corporation is contractually obligated to state that everyone is a winner and is enthusiastic to celebrate everyone's tower building opportunities equally.

Congratulations, and good luck!

Most likely wont be. Maybe if anything for momerail day weekend but I wouldnt hold my breath. Not only is the game worth the full price but the same game on other platforms like pc/mac can cost up to 4x the amount, so its already a steal.

Also, don't expect a 99c sale ever. There would be a lot of unhappy customers who paid the same for the iphone version. But that is all stupid as this is the only game I own I would have paid 10-20 dollars for, and I really dont say that I lot.

They've already had a $.99 sale, and they've also said it was quite successful, so I wouldn't be surprised if they do it again at some point

Yeah but that was before it was universal and the iphone version was released. It just does not make sense now. Maybe some 1.99 sales when the iphone goes down to 99c.

Any sale of any kind would be good in anybody's book, wouldn't you agree?

I've got to admit that I am tempted to buy it at full price but I got burnt the last time I did something like that - which just so happened to be with Death Rally. Luckily I got a refund after I complained about false advertising as the makers of Death Rally had advertised that it was going to go up in price soon after its release when they actually DECREASED it! - the lying b*stards

It started off at 2.99 and they'd said that early adopters would be saving something like 15%. Next thing you know they dropped it to 1.79 instead of increasing the price. And now it's only 0.59, ONLY about 2 months or so after it was released.

So yeah, World Of Goo HD may be a great game but do I want to get burnt again if they decide to do a sale some time soon?

No.

Could someone please tell me how many levels World Of Goo HD has?

I'm looking to get it but I've also read reviews where some people say that the game is a bit on the short side. Is this true?

Cheers
