World Of Goo Attracts One Million Downloads On Mac & iOS




World of Goo has been a huge success since it hit the iPhone back in April 2010, and its developers have just announced the title has now attracted over one million downloads in the App Store and the Mac App Store.

World of Goo is a 2D physics-based puzzler from 2D Boy, that has you dragging “Goo Balls” around each level to build all sorts of structures, such as towers and bridges. Your aim is to provide the balls with a route to their pipe, which will collect them all up. Each level presents you with new puzzles and challenges, and really is a joy to play.

Since its iOS debut on the iPhone just under a year ago, World of Goo has been ported to the iPad and to the Mac, with 69% of its sales so far coming from the universal (iPad & iPhone) version of the app. 29% came from the iPhone only version, while just 2% came from the Mac OS X release.

The title has collected a whole host of awards since its release, and we strongly recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already.

    These guys have done some amazing things with World of Goo over the years and this is just the topping on it. They got it on Wii, on Pc it was on every format including Linux all without DRM and they even had a ‘pay what you want’ sale.

    A million in the app store is just an awesome testament to the work they have done and I’m glad to see them get the recognition they deserve.

    I got this years ago on the Mac – and my kids and I love it. Repurchased so I’d have it on my iPhone. It is even better on a touchscreen. I Imagine iPad game play would be best.

      Am I the only Cult of Mac reader who would really appreciate it if the writers somehow managed to inform the readers about the purpose of the App, new item, etc. in the headline or lead, so those of us unfamiliar with the central topic of the article wouldn’t have to go to the jump to learn that this is yet another thing we don’t give a damn about?
