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!

Ok, this has indeed grown on me quite a bit. Its cute, like Cut the Rope, but the physics of it seem a bit more predictable, and there are no reflexes/timing ones I've come across yet, so it feels a little less trial and error then Cut the Rope, but similarly a polished, attractive and engaging puzzle game. Clearly, there is a bit more to it then cut the rope, as if you really try to think about the physics of the construction you are rewarded with better scores and can work to the "OCD" score for each level.

Still though, I have to admit I'm in the $4.99 may be a bit much camp. Not in the scheme of the world where 4.99 is less then a movie or a book, but in the scheme of comparison to other good puzzle games that are .99 or 1.99.

A better rewind mechanism, a counter of free goo balls & some way to see how your score on each level compares to OCD would be great adds. If they are there, I havent seen them yet -- just finishing first chapter now.

Yep, down in Australia here too, we didn't get the last sale and as I already own it on Mac/PC & Wii $4.99 was too much for me even for the 'definitive' version, its a no brainer at this price though, insta bought!

It's a very short game for the full price but it is very nice while it lasts.
