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 iOS. 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!

Fun but Needs Update
Konokopia on 6/12/2018
The unique gameplay of this puzzle makes it fun and a must try. It’s originality alone deserves support from fans of digital puzzle games. But it really needs to be updated for the iPhone X screen.
Problem in iPhone X with this game
khaled-28 on 4/19/2018
When I played, always exit, need and must update and big fix and improve for iPhone X
I enjoy it
Robin Y. on 4/16/2018
I can’t remember how much I payed for this game, but I thought it was really well made. The levels are difficult, but not impossible and I found that it was worth it. Even though I usually don’t like paying for games like these that have a end and don’t update, this one was fun to complete and I am still trying to get as many slime in as humanly possible on some levels to be able to unlock an achievement called OCD. I just really wish 2D boys would update the game and add a few more levels, which is why it is a four star and not a five.
Not good on my phone
annoyed12543 on 4/14/2018
Doesn’t work well on iPhone 7. Doesn’t shrink to fit the screen. Also not stable, entire screen moves and jiggles when I try to move the goo balls. Cute but not worth 4.99 as a game on my phone.
jessicacope on 3/19/2018
Bought when it first come out 6-7 years ago. Glad to see an update! Fun!
Awesome fun
Mallow18 on 1/21/2018
I played this years ago on PC, and to be honest I forgot I even bought it on iOS until last month. As always, great fun. Really hoping for more games from 2D Boy
Love this game
Mileyamay on 1/20/2018
This so much fun Need more part
Goolaush on 12/3/2017
It's coming to Nintendo Switch!
One of the best games on the App Store.
DillPickleDave on 11/29/2017
I don’t have a good computer, but I would play the demo of this game in school. So seeing this game made me really happy. The levels are challenging but still fun, and never gets boring since there are always new goo balls. Good job
More games
Mohammad Dalesh on 11/24/2017
World of gooo creative ,simple and awesome....that’s happening when science and brilliant ideas are together.... We need more game 2D
The best
Carissa1970 on 11/8/2017
This game made me cry a little....... the soundtrack game ever
Pavlov the heghog on 11/5/2017
I have been playing this on the Xbox since I was little but I absolutely LOVE the phone version. I think it's an improvement over the Xbox version.
Great animation and music score!
5DUC29 on 7/27/2017
Awesome game! One of the best games on the idevice. Truly a classic game.
The "demo" version is better
Tae98Lily on 7/26/2017
I bought World of Goo for iOS because I liked the free demo on the developer's site. After playing the full version for about an hour, I got stuck over and over again because the goo blobs just won't connect with 3 connections no matter how hard I press my finger to the screen. On the "demo" version for free, you can make up to 4 connections with red blobs instead of the icky black ones in this game. Also, the levels are all infuriatingly difficult and are no fun to play. It feels like I am taking a skills test and failing miserably over and over again rather that having fun like in the "demo". The levels are not creative or playful in any sense. The goo is weaker and can only make 2 connections in this version which is a complete letdown for me after having fun with the "demo" of World of Goo. Surely, you can skip levels, but I am yet to see a level that I enjoy with the dark and gloomy appearance of every level in every world. The free Adobe Flash version of this game (levels are different) is a lot more fun, but there is no save functionality. I understand that this game was updated to 64-bit to work with iOS 11, but I am having no fun with it even though I enjoy puzzle games like Forest Home and Splitter Critters.
Buen juego pero se cierra
R_ibarra93 on 6/10/2017
Es muy bueno el juego pero se me cierra inesperadamente en mi iphone 6 plus
Jhfjgvvjhguybvyrgds on 6/3/2017
Must play puzzle game
Thank you!!
thabkyouyayyayyay on 6/2/2017
I loved this game from years ago and really wanted to play it again. I bought it last week and it would crash every time I beat a level because it hadn't been update in a while. I'm so happy you guys updated it! Thank you so much! I love this game!
My favorite game on iPad
Khashawesome on 6/1/2017
Hands down the best game for iPad
World of Goo is back!
Slithy Toves on 5/31/2017
Thank you so much for updating this so it will keep working on 64-bit devices! This is such a wonderfully bizarre and beautiful game. Serious points to the developers for updating it for us Goo fans.
Awesome game!
TheNameIsWaffles on 5/30/2017
Thank you for updating it! A must have!
Thank You
FIFTHSUN2012 on 5/30/2017
This is such a classic. Thanks for updating it. I've had it for years now, it's one of my all time favorite games.
Oddly fun!
The Tejer on 5/29/2017
I have had this game for years now, and I have played it on and off. The game itself is highly entertaining in all of its strangeness. Perfect game for those looking for a good challenge! Also, kudos to the developers for updating this game after nearly 4 years to keep it going strong!
Thank you for updating to 64bit
Artherious87 on 5/29/2017
I love this game. It's challenging and a great way to pass the time. I own it on multiple platforms and keep coming back to it. Can't wait to World of Goo 2!!!
Thanks for the update!!!!!!!!
Dubs1 on 5/29/2017
You guys rock!!!!
Thank You!
andrwmac on 5/29/2017
Thank you for adding 64 bit support! Love this Game!
Great game! NEEDS 64 bit update!
Sambrains on 5/5/2017
I love this game - it's a classic! Very creative, fun, and funny. Please update it for 64 bit so my grandchildren will be able to play it - thanks! With update this would be 5 stars. - The Sign Painter
I love this app
owl༄ on 3/30/2017
64bit please.
It's time for an update
A.sssssssss on 2/28/2017
This app is not 64-bit supported and is not optimized for the new iPhone screens which is a shame because it's an amazing game and I want to recommend it to everyone.
Great game massively in need of updating
BrettApple on 2/17/2017
This is an excellent game that I've been playing since v1.0 on a 3GS and iPad 1. Sadly it hasn't been updated in many years and is still 32bit only and will likely not work on future versions of iOS. Not sure if the developer will update or if the app has simply fallen to the wayside.
Great Game!
EvaC2001 on 1/14/2017
My mom and I used to play this on my Wii when I was younger. I love that I can play it on the go whenever I want now. The touchscreen makes it pretty easy to control. The visuals are very unique, pretty, and kind of silly. It's very fun and challenging at times. Would definitely recommend.
Sounds options
Aaron2191 on 11/27/2016
Decently fun game but it's a little ridiculous I have to listen to their soundtrack instead of being able to play music. Pretty big oversight in my mind
Needs optimization
CheeseCannon on 11/22/2016
Game hasn't been updated since 2013. Needs support for current gen iPhones. Game works fine but it looks zoomed in bc it's not optimized for 4.7" and 5.2" screens
Good graphics and gameplay
Gamergod2006 on 11/18/2016
Best game ever!! The graphics are amazing and I love playing this all the time! I think it has nice storyline, music, and also fun to play if bored. If I could rate 10 stars, I would.
So dull
Feline Muse on 9/27/2016
Why the hype?
One of the best games
Jason Esteves on 8/16/2016

Great game with problems on iPad Air 2
Pup Zeke on 5/20/2016
Love the game, but I have sound on my iPad Air 2. Works great on my iPhone 6s Plus, MacBook Pro, and Windows laptop.
Great Game
Thatvampiredud on 5/19/2016
I love this game! It's something that everybody should get and I mean no kidding about that. I'm serious, even though some of the levels I had to skip since they were too hard, it doesn't matter, very great game, and graphix, 10/10, 5 *****. Your still reading? Stop reading and get this game already! GET IT!
No sound iPad Pro 9.7
Schtako on 4/3/2016
Seems to be a general bug with iOS 9.1 and the new iPad. Sound is not present
Sequel please!
TTTT Town on 3/6/2016
This game is amazing. Make a sequel!
Doesn't work with my iPhone
Mlvjr on 12/24/2015
I was unable to get past the initial sign-up. I tried 4 times, but it kept freezing. $4.99 for an app that doesn't work.
Crashes on 9.0.4
vDrix on 11/26/2015
Please fix
Such a joy!
Some anonymous parent on 10/10/2015
I found this app by chance. It seemed intresting, so I downloaded it. The story was beautiful, the diffrent worlds, particularly biome 2, 4, and 5 were amazing. I loved playing this game, I loved the goo, Everything about it was wonders. I cried at the end of the Epilogue.
Keeps crashing. Very annoying
bostonvip on 9/16/2015
Keeps crashing on iPhone 6 with iOS 8.4. Very often I say. Especially annoying when that happens in the middle of the level this making me to start over.
TheSpiritofradio on 9/11/2015
Please make a second world of goo. Please
I bought a blimp for 99¢!!
KG4UAN on 9/6/2015
At the end of the game, after the credits you'll see a sign and more saying 99¢ when you go to the right you'll see a cabin with a sign and another that says 99¢ and 1 that says open. So you talk with this guy (goo ball) and soon when you get a 99¢ thing (not literally 99¢) a blimp will pop up from the dead end of the road and it's end then you'll see the blimp from the title screen, go to it and the level will be called "mighty blimp" I say "the mighty blimp" and you'll go to it and you'll see the blimp with a sign attached to it and the sign will say "I bought a blimp" I personally love this Easter egg for the iOS and I felt like starring at it for half an hour. So yah, the mighty blimp!! Comment bellow plz if you'd like ;) Ps: if you go to that guy again he will be closed but he'll still talk to you and please say that you like the blimp (even if you don't, just to be nice) another ps: I don't know if you have to complete all levels but comment in bellow please to tell me I just want to know plz wait did I already right this comment?!
Where is World of Goo 2?
Hellstorm99 on 9/1/2015
Easily one of my favorite iOS games to date. Solid story with challenging enough puzzles. Love making the tower with extra goo!
Favorite game
Carrot 0000456 on 7/26/2015
I am a seven year old and I finished this game in two weeks...this game is the most favorite game that I have ever played in my life, and I have played many. I really really love it. I hope you make more levels!
Refund NOW!!!
RoryMadd on 5/28/2015
I just bought this app and can't even open it because it keeps crashing!!! Give me back my 4.99!!!
Love the game but crashes all the time upon opening
Sinister Samson on 5/26/2015
If someone could refresh this game so that it works seamlessly on my iPad I would love you forever!
Sonfire11 on 5/17/2015
Isn't it about time you do an update and maybe add some new levels?
