In addition, the game is very nice to see, thanks to the visual upgrade that studio 2D Boy has done. The packaging is already good: but what about the content?

World of Goo is praised because it is very challenging, but still feels like it is accessible. Handsome, and very attractive. The game is quite simple: you have to build a kind of wobbly structures by connecting a kind of slime balls. With that you then have to make tall buildings and bridges, lots of bridges. That way other Goo balls can run towards the end of the level.

Sounds simple, it isn’t. You have to plan smartly to build good structures and you really have to get to know the Goo balls a bit to use them as smartly as possible. Well: you know what to do, you know it looks nice and it sounds good. What else do you want? World of Goo is a success in its simplicity: this is what games are all about.

No problem! For that reason, it also remains a positive experience, which makes you want to keep playing the game over and over again. You can puzzle and devise a strategy at your own leisure, and it’s not like it’s all pressure or that you keep dying and then have to redo whole pieces. The game is very forgiving and that makes it so accessible. Accessible, but certainly not easy. Enjoy!
