    well world of goo came out this week and it's already in my top 10 favorite games ever, and i figured it'd make a great iphone game since you only use the mouse and the graphics aren't too crazy/3d

    so i emailed 2dboy suggesting they make one and they responded with

    (we'll see with a ! usually means yes)

    anyone else think world of goo in the app store would be the best thing forever :D

    Well not the best thing forever, but a most welcome addition to the iPhones and iTouch's game library. :)

    I spoke to the developer yesterday and he told me that they are thinking about it - but no decision has been made. I really tried to convince him as the touch screen of the iPhone would be perfect for this game. They are currently porting it Mac and Linux versions.

    I'm hooked on this game!

    If the Mac version's in Beta, the iPhone game probably isn't all that far behind :)

    World of Goo

    I already thought of this and e-mailed them even before the app store launched. I got the same reply...:confused:

    WoG

    I love WoG, finished it last night. Right up there, in my opinion. I loved it. I'll continue to play to get the obsessive completion criteria for all the levels.

    iPhone Gish would rock too.

    Bot WoG would be the best... as has been said, the controls are suited perfectly (think pinch zoom a la field runners) and the full mac version is only ~60MB including the music.

    Just a matter of how much it would have to be toned down for iPhone to handle.

    It would be awesome!
    I hope it will be free (or at least 99 cents to 2 dollars)

    us of a
    IMHO Tiki Towers seems like the only thing even close to WoG. Though it doesn't even to come close to the awesomeness of WoG.

    First of all, don't bring back old threads!

    Secondly, FREE?!?! Are you crazy! It is 15 dollars on Wii.

    If it had it's own levels and was optimized to use the iPhones abilities and had decent controls and was even close to the awesomeness of WoG I would pay around $5 for it.

    the app store is probably the biggest and most active store in the world at the moment.

    World of goo WILL be coming to the app store by the end of 2009, i woudl bet everything i own including my dog on that. if it doesn't the developers would be missing out on hundreds of thousands of dollars if not a million.

    a game that popular, with that much critical acclaim, ported well into the appstore is simply a liscence to print money.

    I highly doubt it. 2D Boy will make it 5/8 dollars probably. Considering it is $20 on Mac/PC, $15 dollars WiiWare.

    And, I hope it isn't a direct port, or else I'll beat all the levels too quickly :eek:!

    Edit:
    Plus, WoG has a 90% piracy rate right now, so they'll probably want to profit more.

    As others have said, it is pretty similar to Tiki Towers as far as iPhone/Ipod touch games go, but a good game. I would definitely buy it if it came to the App Store. I hope they port it soon:D

    Why doesn't someone hit the developer's up again and see if they are still thinking about porting?

    With the piracy of this game going on right now, I agree, the App Store version would make a LOT of cash.
