Game Review: World of Goo

For graduation my grandparents gave me a nice crisp twenty dollar bill (among other things). I was explicitly told that I was to use the money on something that I wanted, not what my wife wanted, not what we wanted, and not something my daughter wanted. I was told to spend the money on myself. Since purchased a Nintendo Wii last year, I decided to get a game for that. The game I got was called World of Goo.

World of Goo is available for download in the Wii Shop channel, it is also available for every other OS out there (Windows, Linux, and Mac OSX). This game, which I heard about a few months ago from some co-workers, quickly jumped to the top of my favorites list. If you enjoyed the old classic games that allowed the player to solve puzzles and think about how to accomplish a specific task, then you will love this game. I feels a lot like a modern version of the Incredible machine crossed with Lemmings.

It has a nice slick UI, has a stellar sound track (that you can download for free), and has some pretty good graphics. The thing that I find most interesting is that this game was created by two guys that doesn’t spend any money and who’s office is which ever random wifi coffee shop they wander into on a given day. This game truly shows you what can happen with a little work and no money. They are truly a success. Check out the game play trailer that I have included below. Come on over to my house and play the game if you desire. This is definitely a game to purchase so that these guys continue to make good quality stuff!
