Someone is listening when I pray. The other afternoon, 2D Boy flung some awesome news one the Internet, confirming that World of Goo [$4.99] is indeed coming to the iPod Touch and iPhone, And it’s coming, like, real soon, according to a post on studio’s blog that explains, additionally, that the title is worming its way through Apple’s approval process at the moment.

Before you get all stupid-happy, check what generation your device is. In the reveal post, 2D Boy warns that World of Goo will require 3GS or better, or in iPod Touch terms, a 3rd Generation Touch or newer. Certainly, this design decision will cut a few of you out of the fun, but I’m sure it’s all for the better, as World of Goo will be poised to remain a visual treat in addition to being a great physics-based puzzle game. Oh, and if you already have the iPad version you'll get this for free. World of Goo will become a Universal App.

As for price, you’re looking at standard premium-ish pricing: 2D Boy has gone on record stating that the game will be sold at $2.99 in the US. HOWEVER, for the first 24 hours, the studio will submit to the race to the bottom mentality and price the title at a measly 99 cents, or the same price you pay for a succulent McDonald’s cheeseburger.

I haven’t seen this version yet, but it’s hard to imagine it’ll be a mediocre offering. The iPad version blew my and my fellow staffs’ minds in regards to how well it was catered to the touch tablet, so chances are that this version will cater to the smaller devices seems good. We’ll let you know, for sure.

    uhhh, they did say that the game is universal. "Oh, and if you already have the iPad version you'll get this for free. World of Goo will become a Universal App."

    First comment gets a facepalm.

    This is an instant buy, except for me because I already bought :) I might gift out a few though if I am feeling generous. Props for making this a universal app. Will support this developer in the future (hopefully we see more of them)

    Of course they announce this today :). U was pushing for info all last week in this and last night just nought the iPad version for $4.99.

    I should've waited, oh well at least it supports the devs and it's going universal so I don't have to buy it again.

    I just bought an iPad last week. I have a Ron of iPhone games and resent the need to buy them all again for iPad. I'd rather pay a dollar more and get a universal app then buy it twice.

    Props go to 2D Boy for doing right by customers!

    Definite props for going universal. Certainly won't hesitate to support 2D Boy in the future.

    (Although honestly I'm unlikely to want to play this on my iPhone. It seems to fit the iPad so well.)

    A Ron of iPhone games? Do you talk like Scobby Doo or something?

  • SMP

    But uh, yeah, liked the game when I played it on PC, been waiting for for an iPod version, bu was dismayed when I heard it was cancelled... so this is great news!

  • Nate

    Huge Goo fan here, but it seems to me that this game would be somewhat maddening on the tiny screen of a Phone or Touch ... wouldn't precise goo ball placement be a serious challenge?

    I guess they don't want my dollar... oh well. :(

      Same here. Some of us don't buy every single new thing apple comes out with that has 2-3 "amazing" new features. I'll stick with my 2g.

    So, so glad I bought the iPad version when it was $.99 "just in case" I ever bought an iPad. Haha, love that they made it universal. Every app should be universal. Did you hear me, Gameloft? Did you? Every app. Universal. Do it. Stop milking everyone.

    • brian

      Most apps don't NEED universal, they just need something better than the (2x) button always lingering under your thumb. It is absolutely awesome to have the screen SHriⁿᵏ away to nothing in the middle of a firefight.

    So I can buy it now and just update it later? I don't own an iPad.

    OMG D: I should have listened to you when you told us to buy the HD version "just in case" :(

    Now that the SD version is out, the HD version might never be 99 cents in a hundred years...
