World of Goo iPhone

Friday, February 25th, 2011

World of Goo on iPhone! We’re just about finished, and hope to release the game in the App Store as soon as finishing cramming the last of the Goo Balls inside. In the meantime, here are some answers to some “frequently” asked questions:

Q. When will World of Goo release on iPhone?
A. We’re polishing up the last of the Goo Balls, so as soon as we can. Hopefully sometime in March?

Q. What’s World of Goo?
A. World of Goo is a game about Goo, originally for Wii and PC/Mac/Linux, and recently released on iPad. It won a bunch of awesome awards, including some “game of the yearhonors, and is still one of the highest rated Wii games. More info and video here.

Q. Which iStuff will it run on now?
A. This Phone version of World of Goo will run on iPhone 4, 3GS, and equivalent Touch models. (I think that means anything with a “armv7” in it, whatever that is.)

Q. Can I wear a Goo Ball on my head while playing with my GooPhone?
A. Yes, visit here for all your head warming needs!

Q. But the phone’s screen is so small, how can all the Goo fit in there?
A. Screen size was our biggest concern too. But, against all expectations, the size of the screen was not much of an obstacle at all. After a few minutes of playing, my feeble human brain doesn’t even notice anymore.  Even so, we’ve added pinch-zooming for those days when your fingers are feeling fat.
