Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Beautiful visual style
Pro Great variety in puzzles
A lot of attention has been put into creating interesting levels with great pacing and variety throughout the game.
Pro Excellent physics engine
Physics in-game take into account gravity, wind, weight of different goo-balls, structural integrity of your architectural solutions to create an addictive, "let me try this one more time"-type of gameplay.
Pro A twisted tale
As you start playing there doesn't seem to be much of a story. A few philosophical messages left behind by the Sign Painter and a cut-scene here or there. But as you progress through the game you unearth different details about a slightly disturbing world.
Pro Good, funny music
Each level has good and very funny music.
Pro Time based gameplay
Instead of having lives, you have a score in the top left corner. For each thing that hits you, your time gets decreased (when it hits 0 you die). When you shoot things though, it adds a bit of time.
Pro Interesting game mechanics based off speed
The faster you go, the more difficult the game becomes...but at the same time the more effective your bullets are (they spread out more, hitting more enemies). Alternatively, you can also slow down which charges your shield, which you can then release to destroy anything in its path.
Con No co-op mode
The PC version does not include the co-op mode that was included in the Wii Ware version.
