I hated it at first, and it was one of the first iPhone games I ever bought.

Got into it a bit more, but only in short bursts. It really is not suitable as a mobile game. The iPad version is probably a lot more playable.

I really enjoyed playing this game on my friend's iPhone. Wish they'd put the universal app on sale again :[.

It's the best physics puzzler out there. A must-have at the price.

I actually can appreciate this solution.

The iPhone version for people who ONLY have an iPhone and would rather a cheaper version. $2.99 for the iPhone only version, $4.99 (regular price) for the Universal.

If you never plan on getting an iPad, why not save $2?

I would rather have seen the Universal version go on sale, but that was done just last month... Regardless, this is a stellar game. I never played it on the iPhone and won't, however, but I cannot stress enough that this game is worth every single penny.

I may have gotten singled out about being a priceist regarding some price drops, but I will never feel that way about some games, World of Goo is #1 on that list.

I paid $9.99 on its release, and was happy to do so. 2D boy struggled so much with piracy, the least I could do is help recoup some of that. If I had to do it again, I'd purchase it again even knowing it would go to $0.99 at some point, simply to support the dev

This is a great, great, great game. It feels like it was designed by pure amazing geniuses. Buy Buy Buy.

Yeah, I'm slightly annoyed with these companies that make separate universal apps and iPhone apps. I don't have an iPad (yet), so it makes no sense for me to buy the pricier one just for my iPhone. Luckily, I got WoG HD for 99 cents when it was on sale.
But now I noticed Contre Jour HD is on sale for 99 cents when I paid that price for the iPhone-only version :/ Pretty annoying.

I have no problem at all with developers making an iPhone-only version as well as a universal version. I got the iPhone version of WoG on sale a few months back and certainly wish I had known the universal version would go on sale eventually, but I have no problem having paid for the iPhone only version because, well, because I only have an iPhone and not an iPad. If everyone just made a universal version, I'd have to pay more for most apps/games.

They need to cover the cost of redoing art for an iPad version by releasing a more expensive universal version.. yet they have to release a cheaper iPhone version to avoid alienating the majority of their customer base who are used to games being priced much lower.

Umm...pardon my asking but what do you even do in world of goo? And is it worth it for my ipod touch (e.g. non-ipad)? Is it...fun?

I don't want a signature.
