World of Goo Updated With iPhone 5 Support

The very popular World of Goo has finally been updated with support for the iPhone 5's 16:9 screen (via Macgasm).

The $2.99 puzzler, which our sister site TouchArcade named as iPad Game of the Year in 2010, has players manufacturing bridges and towers out of balls of goo to help other balls of goo reach a particular end point.

From the TouchArcade review:
At first, World of Goo is about manufacturing bridges and towers with the stretched tissue of little balls of goo. The point is to provide a path that other goo balls can follow into a metal pipe, the end point. Physics play a key role in this process: you'll need to build sound structures, which sounds easier than it is. Goo isn't concrete.

Each level requires a set number of goo balls to reach the pipe, and each goo ball you use for a structure counts against the total provided. This constant negotiation of goo resources is pleasing because it forces you to think around the obvious solution, which is often one of brute building.
World of Goo is available for $2.99 on the iPhone, $4.99 on the iPad, and $9.99 on the Mac. [Direct Links: iPhone, iPad, Mac]

I already own this on my Mac. The only way they'll get me to buy the iPhone version is if they include icloud support.

Love this on my iMac. Not sure it would be so good on the small screen though. Hope they have the same cool sound track.

Wow... Took such a long time to update...

And I only thought it was for the iPhone. Wasn't even aware it was available on the Mac. Not buying there, but cool.
