World of Goo Reviews

We used to play this at our public Library when we were a kid and now we have it on our phone! We had completely forgotten about this game then one day we remembered it from playing a completely different game and we really wanted to get it so we did and we were so happy about buying it! We would give this game a million stars and recommend to anyone we just love this game so much.

We have had this game for years now, and we 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!

We played this years ago on PC, and to be honest we forgot we even bought it on iOS until last month. As always, great fun. Really hoping for more games from 2D Boy.

Thank you for updating it! A must have!

We played this game on PC back when it first came out and loved it. Of course it feels right at home on iOS. We downloaded it to our daughters iPad and she is liking it a lot, however, she did run into a problem where the game started crashing and not letting her open her game save. If you get crashes or an invalid profile error try signing out of Game Center. That is what fixed it for us.

It’s coming to Nintendo Switch!

This has been our favorite game for over 4 years now. Its so creative and the puzzles are creative. We love the fact that they make it easier for younger kids by making a skip level button! #gooforlife.

This game has stuff going on in it.

We’ve had this game since it came out on the App Store and was wondering if youd be able to add the level creator to the mobile version.

First off, this game is a blast. There are instructions but part of it is figuring out for myself. If u arent a self-starter, u could become frustrated and quit, but if u like to feel the glorious feeling of personal achievement for completing a difficult task? This games for you. Not easy, trust us, but rewarding. We love it because it one time pay, not additional fees to play, no coins, no jewels and stuff to buy. Especially love that there is not a weekly fee to pay to play. This business of paying a fee to play EACH week is outrageous. However this game is a ONE time pay, and play all ya want. Everyday, 24/7 and no money required accept to buy the app. One time fee! Loving it! Like a challenge….. This games for you!

We are a huge fan… ILOVE THIS GAME SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And have played the entire thing over 5 times!5 times!

This is such a classic. Thanks for updating it. We’ve had it for years now, it’s one of our all time favorite games.

Awesome game! One of the best games on the idevice. Truly a classic game.

We have been playing this game since we were a kid and it is still as good as ever. We love the atmosphere. The levels are difficult but we wanted to learn to beat those levels into the future. Thats what makes a good game.

This game needs to be updated for the latest iPhone displays, also Apple is reportedly removing apps older than 2 years that havent been updated soon, please devs update this game, it would be a shame for the game to get removed from the App Store.

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.

We dont have a good computer, but we would play the demo of this game in school. So seeing this game made us really happy. The levels are challenging but still fun, and never gets boring since there are always new goo balls. Good job.

It the best game on the App Store but there needs to be more on the App Store is so good but in the last cutscene there was goo balls wakeing up on the moon so it does not end.

This game made us cry a little……. The soundtrack tho…… Best game ever.

What a great and unique puzzle game. We havent found one as satisfying as Monument Valley which was a bit too easy. This game tested both our problem solving skills and fine motor skills. It was the perfect difficulty. Delightfully frustrating at times. Our only tiny minor complaint is that we would have preferred to play on an iPad. With our iPhone 6+, we still had to scroll a bit more than Id have liked too but it added to the challenge.

We used to play this with our dad a long time ago, probably around when it first came out. We had played a bit on our own, but we only just recently finished it. All we can say is, wow. We love this game so much, the style, the music, its incredibly fun!

World of gooo creative ,simple and awesome…. Thats happening when science and brilliant ideas are together…. We need more game 2D.

We are very picky about games for our iPad and/or iPhone. This is, hands-down, one of the absolute best games we have ever played. We first got it years ago and keep re-playing it. We want a World of Goo 2. (Developers- please make a new one.) This game is unique and challenging without being impossible. Highly recommend it.

Why did you make it almost impossible to get all the OCDs.

The unique gameplay of this puzzle makes it fun and a must try. Its originality alone deserves support from fans of digital puzzle games. But it really needs to be updated for the iPhone X screen.

So we had this game for like 4 or 5 years and we just wanted to tell you that it is the BEST!!!!

We steal remember that we played this game in our childhood and one of those day we were searching searching and finally found it and it have the same feelings and if we say true its very nice game.

We loved this game from years ago and really wanted to play it again. We bought it last week and it would crash every time we beat a level because it hadn’t been update in a while. We’re so happy you guys updated it! Thank you so much! We love this game!

This so much fun Need more part.

But please give support for new iOS. We cannot play it on our new phone it immediately crashes when we open the app. This happened on our old phone when we upgraded to like iOS 13 or 14 it just stopped working.

We have been playing this on the Xbox since we were little but we absolutely LOVE the phone version. We think it’s an improvement over the Xbox version.

Bought when it first come out 6-7 years ago. Glad to see an update! Fun!

So we just bought this game because we always used to play it and loved it but everytime we tried to access our save it wouldnt let us and we have seen many people complaining about this but we found a fix and all you need to do is sign out of your Game Center account and it will let you access your save since this game hasnt had an update for 4 years they probably wont fix this so this is the only fix we know of we hope this helps :)

Please, add 2020 iPad Pro resolution support.

We played this game on a computer first when it was out as a CD, found it here years later and had to get it. The game itself is fantastic, its challenging and highly addictive. However, there have been issues with the game crashing suddenly, but recently its started denying us access to any save files. Says that its an invalid profile selection and that it belongs to (my profile). When opening the app is shows Im logged in and will even show it in the Home Screen. We havent been able to fix it, and if you start another file it will only do the same thing again. It would be great to have this fixed because it really is a great game, hope its taken care of soon.

Can you let us make custom levels, or even add levels because we’ve played this for 7 years now and we have nothing else to find or do. Other than that, the game functions well.

We had played this game for years on a separate device so we decided to buy it on this current device too. Everything was fine until chapter 2 when the game suddenly crashed and closed itself. We successfully reopened the app but to find myself at the save file screen instead of the normal chapter selection screen. When we tried to select our save file it said that we wasnt the player that owned the save file despite it saying at the top of the screen when we reopened the app that we were indeed the same player. We then closed the app again and reopened it again to find that it crashed again instantly, it did this a few more times before allowing us to access our save file again. This again happened in chapter 3 and as of writing this we have not been able to get back to our save file. Many would argue that it would be easy to get back to where we were but we had gotten OCD on all levels before chapter 3 and we had even done some OCDs in chapter 3 which was hours of work and annoyance. Please fix this if possible 2D, thanks for reading and have a good day.

So we were playing the world of goo when it just crashed, But thats not all. When we opened It back up its said that, this profile cannot be used because it belongs to the Game Center player ******** please fix this we want to play.

The game is wonderful but there are some issues. The game will not recognize our account after we exit game and play later. It says you cannot access it because it belongs to (my account name) when as the game loads it says signed in as (my account name) This makes it so we have to finish the game in one go. This is a major issue in our opinion. ( we play on an iPad Air)

If u like puzzles, bridges, cute minions, this is a great port of the game.

We cant remember how much we payed for this game, but we thought it was really well made. The levels are difficult, but not impossible and we found that it was worth it. Even though we usually dont like paying for games like these that have a end and dont update, this one was fun to complete and we are still trying to get as many slime in as humanly possible on some levels to be able to unlock an achievement called OCD. We 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.

We really enjoy this game. We like that its fun and challenging at the same time. Love the signs by the Sign Painter. We took off one star because you cant mute the music from the app. We like to listen to podcasts while we play and with this game we cant do that.

We really love this game because it has a long story about these critter types and also challenging, but we just have one thing to say, its not challenging and you can get through the whole game by just SKIPPING the levels. We dont know why the editor decided to have you skip easily. We like it, but too easy for people to handle.

We played this game on our great grandpas iPad and loved it. We never get games that cost money, but our mom let us get sense we loved it soo much. It was the only game we have played sense then, until we realized every time we exit out of the game and reopen it, we cant go into our file. It says it is not our account and then we have to delete it and restart. We really like this game just it doesnt save your progress which is very disappointing.

We love it but it wont let us go back to the world if we closed the app or if we wanted to go in another world.

Our brother and we loved this game as a kid. We were so excited playing it, its amazing and well thought out. Our only problem is every time we try to get back into our profile it wont work. It just says that account belongs to someone else. So every time we have to start over. Please fix it so we can play.
