Indie developer 2D Boy’s PC and WiiWare hit World of Goo became an iOS hit last year, when the game finally hit the iPad, and later the iPhone and iPod touch. Now, the game is hitting everyone’s favorite Linux-based mobile OS, Android! With just a simple post announcing that the game is “coming soon” and the nickname GooDroid, Android owners suddenly have a new game to get hyped about.
The gameplay, which has been often imitated by other games such as Tiki Towers, involves using a variety of goo balls to build structures that must reach a certain point in the level. The game has also become known for its sense of humor and distinctive art style. The Android version will support both phones and tablets; the iOS version was initially for the iPad only before 2D Boy made the game work properly on the smaller screens. We’ll have a full report on the game when it releases. Until then, I build up hope that the game will be playable on my refrigerator. Just not in my refrigerator, it’s cold in there, and I’d much rather keep goo out of it.
