World of Goo originally arrived on PCs, Macs, and the Wii to wide critical acclaim in 2008. Its physics-based puzzles -- players pick up glops of goo roaming around 2-D environments and stretch them into place to build teetering towers -- was accessible, satisfying, and instantly habit-forming. This rewarding experience has been successfully transitioned to mobile devices and made even more straightforward thanks to the intuitive touch interface, which lets players interact with the goo directly using their fingers rather than a mouse or Wii remote. Creating World of Goo’s cantilevers, latticework bridges, narrow towers, and broad scaffolds has never been simpler. Few mobile games are more creative, entertaining, or endearing. Don't miss it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
