Drop whatever you are doing and head over to the App Store right now. This is not a drill. There are some pretty crazy Valentine's Day sales going on right now, but this... this is beyond crazy. World of Goo HD [Link] for the iPad, the same World of Goo HD that we gave a glowing five star review to and chose as our 2010 iPad Game of the Year, is currently being sold for just under a dollar. We thought World of Goo HD was a bargain at its original price of $9.99, and a must buy when it dropped to $4.99 last month, but at 99¢ you should basically just shift into "click buy button" mode.

If you still need convincing, there is a forum thread full of positive impressions from our members. Honestly though, when a game that is the caliber of World of Goo HD can be purchased for money that is likely swimming around in your couch cushions, it should be a no-brainer. If you own an iPad and don't own World of Goo HD, buy it immediately. If you don't own an iPad buy it anyway, so that in the event that you do get an iPad sometime in the future you'll be prepared. Better hurry though, as the sale will only last for one day and the clock is already ticking. Now, go!

App Store Link: World of Goo HD, $0.99 (iPad Only)

  • Diogojacinto

    have it on the WII and just had to buy it here again. 0.79€ is nothing for a game of this quality

  • Doodler

    haha. I knew it would be 99c someday. Downloading...

    buying an ipad as soon as the iPad2 reorders start and I'm glad I saw World of Goo at this price.

  • Tech

    Don't even have an iPad yet but I bought it. Couldn't pass up this good a game at this price for the future. ;)

  • thebleeptruth

    What the hell?? Oh well.. I got it for $4.99. Overall, great game. But wow, 2 sudden price drops in less than 2 months if I'm not mistaken.

    Should be an instant buy for any iPad owner.

  • http://twitter.com/GordLacey Gord Lacey

    Yeah, I don't have an iPad either, but I bought the game.

  • boop

    not buying anythingt ever again til it's 59p. sick of paying full wack for stuff and then get bent over.

      Do that, and we'll end up with crap 99 cent games in the app store.

      Sure, I spent $9 more THEN than I could have now, but guess what, OUR support, the early buyers, ended up making it possible for them to drop the price for a day and offer it to boost their sales.

      There's a part of me that wished I would have waited, but I can tell you right now with the amount of effort 2d Boy put into their game, it was well worth $10

  • boop

    for everyone else, its all good though. like everyone says buy it even if you dont own an ipad. :) im smiling.....really

  • Anonymous

    I'm in. I don't have an iPad yet, but I'm still definitely in. :)

  • Sera

    bought it...but..wait!! i don't own an ipad..strange

  • Jeffreydalon

    This is good because it's a great game. Why, however, should I ever pay full price for a game again? The price fluctuations may end up hurting the developers in the long run.

    • snowy2004

      Probably not. Early adopters and fans get the games at full price and then they get everyone else with price drops. Even at 99c, they don't need to deal with packaging, they likely make a decent amount of cash with the larger volume of potential buyers and all it costs them is 30% of the price to Apple.

    • GiHubb

      I agree with you 100%! And in the end devs won't be able to put so much effort into a game when they know that if they price it at over $1 it won't sell. There is a reason why Xbox marketplace and PSN rarely have price drops.

  • Shatnershairpiece

    I don't like puzzle games, so even 99 cents is a waste of money.

  • snowy2004

    " If you don't own an iPad buy it anyway, so that in the event that you do get an iPad sometime in the future you'll be prepared."

    That's what I thought when I saw this. That's a crazy price! I'll regard it as an investment into my likely iPad-filled future.

  • Fv

    i got it and 1st impressions are...a bit boring, dont believe the hype. glad i didnt pay 10 for it.

    • http://twitter.com/spongefile Tina Aspiala

      The first few levels are just an intro. Playing it through is a treat, it just keeps changing.

  • GiHubb

    Took your advice Jared and bought it without even owning the hardware (yet) :-)

    The cheapskate part of me wishes I'd had waited.

    The "I need to support the devs so they can continue to make great games and I get to play the games as soon as they come out" drive is stronger. For some things.

    You won't seem e dropping full price on big name devs like EA, but for small devs like this - If SOME of us don't pay full price, they won't be able to keep producing gamess like this.

    SO am much as again, I wish I could have spent 99 cents, I can say I supported the devs and got to be an early adopter.

  • ryohki

    doesn't seem to be on sale in Australia yet :(

  • AllFunkedUp

    Still $5.99 over here in Australia even though it says Lonely Valentine Sale at the top of the description, boo! I already own it on Wii & Mac so thats too much for me to throw at the game again.

    Hell I don't even have an iPad just yet (I plan on purchasing version 2) but I still bought World of Goo. Which will mark the 3rd time I've purchased the game.
