Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that World of Goo is the mobile version of a game that has been available for PCs, Macs, and the Wii for years. The artistic imagery, while not particularly violent (goo balls can perish by falling over cliffs or being struck by spinning machinery), is vivid and odd. Also, the game’s clever commentary on consumerism — the precious goo we work with is collected by a corporation that uses it for a variety of frivolous consumer products — may be lost on children. However, kids interested in building could have great fun with the physics-based puzzles, which will get them thinking about basic construction concepts.

World of Goo is a Puzzle Games app that is designed for those 8.  The app has an overall rating of 5 out of 5 and a learning rating of 4 out of 5.

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Fantasy noir visuals, music, wry hints, and satire create a cinematic feel. Kids will be motivated to try again and again possibly for OCD level (Obsessive Completion Distinction).

The Support Level for World of Goo is about a 4 out of 5.

An extensive gamer community at the World of Goo website and Google achievements offer players resources and challenge. Hints are on the entertaining yet cryptic side.
