Puzzle games are a dime a dozen on the App Store, but World of Goo is easily one of the best ones available. It's charm, level of polish, and stream of new mechanics and ideas will keep you invested, while its other qualities will probably make you wish that every game from this point forward could be as imaginative and intuitive. Check it out.

We literally have nothing bad to say about World of Goo. It's a wonderful puzzle game that every iPad owner needs to download. Prepare to spend hours, if not weeks, playing this one.

The rest you probably know about already: the fantastic visuals, the cracked humour, the five contrasting chapters that keep you transfixed right to the end. If a better game ever comes to the iPad, you might well spontaneously combust.

World of Goo is the quintessential, addictive iPad puzzler. Once you start flinging goo, you’ll never want to stop.

That said, few games are as fun, interesting, and enjoyably complicated as what you’ll find in World of Goo HD. It’s a must-have for iOS gamers.

Men detta förringar inte att World of Goo är ett fullkomligt lysande spel, oavsett format man spelar det till. Personligen föredrar jag Ipad-versionen framför dator-versionen, men oavsett om du har en Ipad eller inte, behöver du som gillar härliga pusselspel med härlig stämning, köpa World of Goo.

To exacerbate things, the difficulty curve isn't very forgiving. The game quickly starts getting hard, so there isn't much time to get acquainted with the mechanics. A level-skip feature comes in handy, but a level-select option that let you play levels out of order — instead of forcing you to suffer the indignity of having the level cleared automatically for you — would be better. Still, all the game's complexity makes for some brilliant puzzles. World of Goo is not about trial and error. You may not complete most of the levels on your first run, but the carefully polished physics and smart mechanics mean there's always a logical solution. I played World of Goo previously on my PC, but the iPad version's controls are a lot more suited to the game. Stacking goo balls by dragging them with your finger is faster, not to mention more fun.

I can’t recommend World of Goo enough. If you are a fan of physics puzzlers or just a good games in general, this is a must have. While it’s not a new game, it’s good to have it finally on a platform that it seems to have been designed for.

Oozing charm and smart design, World of Goo is the best physics puzzler available on iPad.

Dieses Spiel ist wie gemacht für's iPad! Nichts gegen Maus oder Remote, aber die eigenen Finger sind zusammen mit der Multitouch-Möglichkeit einfach schneller. Mittlerweile ist World of Goo ja ein, wenn nicht sogar der Beweis dafür, welches kreative Potenzial in der umtriebigen Independent-Szene schlummert: Obwohl das physikbasierte Konstruktionsabenteuer schon zwei Jahre auf dem klebrigen Buckel hat, merkt man es dem Spiel mit seinem bestechenden Artdesign nicht an - es ist einfach zu gut. Kaum hat man die sauber umgesetzte iPad-Version gestartet, vergeht die Zeit wie im Nu. Das trickreiche Zusammenbasteln der wackligen Schleimbälle verbindet den fürsorglichen Charme von Lemmings mit den gefährlichen Gesetzen der Schwerkraft- das ist witzig, das ist fordernd und verdammt unterhaltsam!
