World of Goo by 2D Boy
World of Goo is one of the best indie games ever. With countless awards, ports to Mac, Linux, iPhone and iPad and an outspoken team of two superstars, it really is no surprise that World of Goo was such a success.
Developed by 2D Boy, World of Goo is a physics puzzle, construction game. The player must drag-and-drop Goo Balls to form a contraption or structure to overcome an obstacle or reach a specific point. The Goo Balls are being collected by a mysterious corporation and the player, with assistance from the Sign Painter, must collect them all.
World of Goo features unique worlds that offer new and more challenging puzzles. Throughout the game, players will also come across new species of Goo Balls that provide unique abilities to the player. If the story mode is not enough for you, then the massive online competition to build the highest Goo Ball tower will surely make you squeal.
World of Goo is the game that started the indie game movement. It showed everyone that after a few hard years of backed up bills and an empty fridge can pay off.
