2D Boy, makers of WiiWare/PC hit World of Goo, are bringing their game to Apple’s iPad, bringing with it support for up to 11 fingers at once. 2D Boy said that “There’s a lot of iGoo to pour in, and we don’t want to release something if it doesn’t run absolutely buttery smooth.”
2D Boy says the iPad version of World of Goo (dubbed Wogpad) will play much like the Wii’s multiplayer, with ” 11 fingers on one screen. Which means you can play two handed, with friends, an animal, anything up to eleven fleshy things touching the screen.”. In case you’ve missed World of Goo on the PC, Wii or Mac when it released sometime in 2008, you should definitely check it out when it comes to the pad as the game was practically made for touchscreen gameplay.
The physics-based puzzle game sure seems like a good fit for the iPad, so we’re looking forward to before the holiday season. 2D Boy says that an iPhone version is a definite “maybe,” writing that if Apple’s phone is up to the technical challenge it’s under consideration. No concrete release date is set as Apple has to approve the game and no pricing has been revealed as of yet.
