World of Goo Coming To Android, Dubbed GooDroid

Indie game developer, 2D Boy announced yesterday on their website that the ever popular World of Goo will be heading to Android.

World of Goo for Android devices is coming soon. We’re just working out the final kinks in the machinery. More info on GooDroid soon. [Update: yes, both phones and tablets]

I have been playing World of Goo on both the PC and Wii for the past few years and honestly, it may be one of the best casual games out there. The physics based games (like Angry Birds) main objective is to transport various goos across the map and into a pipe. It sounds easy, but believe me it is both challenging and addicting.

The short post from the developer has indicated that the game will be available for both phones and tablets, however no word was said on pricing or a release date. Perhaps 2D Boy will follow in Rovio’s footsteps and release a free version with ads and a paid version without them. The game currently runs you a cool $4.99 on iOS, which even at that price the game is well worth it.

    I’ve never played World of Goo on WiiWare(yet), but have played the game countless times on PC (via Steam) and it is insanely addicting and fun. If you have yet to give the game a go, then do so by downloading the demo via Steam, just so you know what you’re getting yourself into before the game makes its eventual way to Android. ‘Cause once you start playing, you may not want to stop!

    The picture looks like X Construction… I’m guessing this is a little more in depth?

      A LOT more in depth. Very much so.

    • Dan

      Similar concept, but yes World of Goo goes deeper and becomes more complex

      • Jblackwell1014

        yeah, its so unique how the game is very simplistic, yet it follows a very compelling story that definitely leaves you thinking

    Cut the Rope wasn’t quite it, but I think this WILL be the next Angry Birds.  I have already beat the PC edition long ago.  I can’t wait to play it on my tablet.  Finally an awesome game that didn’t get its start as an iGame.

  • I must show appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of problem. Right after researching throughout the the web and seeing thoughts which were not pleasant, I was thinking my life was gone. Existing without the presence of answers to the issues you’ve solved through your entire write-up is a crucial case, and the ones that would have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your website. Your primary capability and kindness in taking care of all the things was valuable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a subject like this. I am able to at this point look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the expert and sensible help. I will not think twice to suggest your web page to any person who would need support on this topic.

    I bought this stupid thing on the Wii, I bought on my girlfriend’s Ipad, and darn it, I’ll buy it on my Incredible, even though the screen’s gonna be woefully too small to play.  And when Asus finally gets their butts in gear and release the transformer 2, I’m gonna FORCE 2D Boy to take my money again to get another copy of it for my tablet!

    One of the few games I can think of that was PC first and will probably be better as a tablet game.  Great game lots of fun.
