Review World of Goo
World of Goo is a classic game, currently available for computers Windows, as well as for Linux, Mac, and mobile devices with iOS or Android operating systems, which will allow you to entertain yourself with a really simple proposal, and that nevertheless, as the levels go by, it becomes more and more addictive. Of course, on this occasion, we will dwell specifically on what happens in the case of Windows.
The game is mainly about taking the Goo balls from one side of the screen to the other, generating a path so that they can reach the place where they should arrive without inconveniences and in the shortest possible time. To do this, we will have to learn to develop our skills since we will have to drag the balls across the screen, and although the movement is intuitive, it is not easy from one moment to the next.
As in any game worth its salt, you will see that as you advance in levels, things get increasingly complicated since the paths that Goo's balls have to follow are not as simple or short as they used to be. In addition, there is the risk that some of the balls break along the way since all kinds of traps start to appear in each stage, and they are there to cause damage, no more and no less.
And surely, at this point of testing the game, you will have found that the protagonist is a rather curious character. It is nothing more than a substance with all the appearance of being sticky, which is formed by cells with life, which become solid when dragged or dropped on the screen, allowing us to perform all the necessary movements at each level.
To reach the next level of this title, you have to be able to transfer or send all the Goo particles to the pipe that will always be at the other end of the screen, although, as we said, the obstacles will be bigger and bigger. The problem is that as you leave behind the initial levels, you will also have to send more Goo particles to the pipe, which will take more time.
Of course, this game, like any other, has some little tricks or traps that we can take forward, and is that there is the possibility of creating links between the particles, joining them to approach them little by little to the pipe, running less risk and taking much less time too. However, you must be careful not to use all the substances until you send the last particle to the pipe.
You must also learn to control the physics of the game, bearing in mind that the force and placement of the particle launches are the elements that will determine if they reach their destination or if they, unfortunately, fall by the wayside. For this reason, the more you practice throwing the particles, even if some of them are left on the way, the greater the chances of succeeding in your games.
Besides that, you will see that in all the game's scenarios, it is possible to find posters that, through humor and some curious clues, tell us certain advice that we should follow if we want to succeed in overcoming the different obstacles presented before us. Undoubtedly, being attentive to the information provided here is of vital importance to leave all the inconveniences behind.
The truth is that it is not bad at all, taking into account that although it does not have the definition that a title developed for the latest consoles on the market can have, it does have a unique aesthetic, which makes it unmistakable compared to other similar games, and that is an aspect that we value very much. If you play World of Goo, you can be sure that you will quickly distinguish each of its elements.
In summary, we can say that it hardly has any points against or that have not convinced us. It is a title that manages to conquer you quickly by how easy it is to learn to use it, as for how addictive it becomes by the curious mechanics that has to allow us to pass the level. It is undoubtedly a good alternative if you don't have a very powerful computer and still want to use it for fun.
