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!

Just bought this after seeing the Game of the Year Award. All I can say is wow. I have bought tons of Ipad games this year and it's one of the best so far. Simple but challenging.

Yeah, either everything would be so tiny, or you'd need to constantly scroll around. I can imagine the frustration. Maybe they'll find a way to make it work though.

This game feels so much better playing with the touch screen. Definitely worth picking up even if you've played it on other platforms.

What's New in Version 1.1
* Significant performance improvements (game should run much more smoothly now)
* Added flag display in the clouds in the World of Goo Corporation level to indicate players' countries.
* Usability improvements (no more accidental grabs of clouds, accidental activation of time bugs, accidental tapping of retry/menu buttons)
* Bug fixes (orientation at startup is now always correct, an intermittent crash bug in the World of Goo Corporation level was fixed)
