World of Goo Is Metacritic’s iPad Game of the Year!

Our friend Amin just sent us a link to a metacritic report that names World of Goo Metacritic’s iPad Game of the Year, being the #1 top reviewed iPad game of 2010 with a score of 95.  Wow, what an honor!

Amin, by the way, is the mutual friend who introduced Kyle and I to each other back in 2006 so he is as responsible as anyone for the creation of World of Goo. Double thanks, Amin!

    I’ve played a lot of games on my iPod touch that were great on other platforms but become an exercise in pain and frustration on the tiny screen. Please don’t heed requests for it unless you find a way to make it as great as the original. I’m sure that experienced players of the desktop version could figure it out, but you’d want to welcome new players – who I fear would find it just too hard.

    I can picture it working with a completely new level set, designed with smaller maps and less goo to keep track of. However, I’d still be sad, because you’d probably spend a year polishing it, when you could have made a completely new game instead.

    the screen size wouldn’t matter because you would just need to scroll more and they could nake it so that you can change the zoom so that you can see more when zoomed out or play more when zoomed in

    Briliant! Good on you guys!
    And also, as suggested, don’t make an Ipod/phone version, it just won’t work.

    @Grinner: Why not?? It should be on first than the iPad one, an iPhone version was already made a year ago, but not launched.
    Hate when iPad people dont want their “iPad only” games come to the iPhone/iPod

    Hey quick question for you guys. I was looking at the new apps recommended by apple today. One of the apps is called Tiki Towers. This game looked just like goo and looks almost like a total rip off what you guys are doing. Have you seen this game?

    Why on silly iOS and not on DRM-free Android?
