Sounds like they are aiming for $9.99, which I think equates to £5.99, and it was originally a £15 game for PC and Mac. Still well worth it.

Purchased this game for the PC via Steam a few years ago for £6.99 (still same price today). It's a fun game using physics but I wouldn"t say it would be any better than Cut The Rope, Angry Birds Seasons etc etc so £5.99 would be overpriced in my opinion.

Should be around £1.19 ish like so many other great titles.

Review and hands on video at Touch Arcade

YouTube - World of Goo Hands-On Preview

Review closes with - "Puzzle games are a dime a dozen on the App Store, but World of Goo is easily one of the best ones available. It's charm, level of polish, and stream of new mechanics and ideas will keep you invested, while its other qualities will probably make you wish that every game from this point forward could be as imaginative and intuitive. Check it out."

Downloaded and finished chapter 1 this morning on my way to London and it really is the best version of the game. It's so much better moving to goo around with your finger.

Best thing I can suggest for people not sure, there is a PC / Mac demo available to give you a good idea of how it plays.

Its ace and exactly the same as the Wii/PC versions, unfortunately that means its just as tough. :rotfl:

Am I the only one who thinks £5.99 just seems a lot for an app now, and will wait for the inevitable price drop?

Don't get me wrong, £5.99 for a game is great value. I bought Plants Vs Zombies for £5.99 and my girlfriend has literally played it for hours on end. However the app store, especially lately with EA has seen some crazy bargains. Look at the new Sim City. Literally out for a couple of days at £5.99, then slashed to 59p.

I buy games for my 360,PS3 etc, so £5.99 I know is great value. I often get my iTunes vouchers in offers from shops, so it probably wouldn't even be £5.99 that I really end up paying. Still despite all this, something holds me back from buying it at the current price.

Does anyone else feel like this with apps now?

Yes :blush:

But only because I have so many games that I am not even playing them, just buying them. So although they are getting 59p instead of 5.99, I am impulse buying meaning if I was sensible, I would have not bought it at all.

Thats my excuse anyway.

In my case, I bought PvZ HD @ £5.99 simply because I got 'free money' from an itunes voucher - I had completed the game on the iPhone before I got the iPad and only bought it for my daughter.

I will buy WoG, but I dont need it now (with Aralon) so I hope I get a lucky price drop. Its the same for Chaos Rings. I am sure a tenner for a FF game is excellent value, but these 'app prices' make you think that £10 is expensive.

I originally purchased it for the PC at it's launch so didn't bother buying it again at £5.99 but at 59p it's a bargain!

Darn. When it came out I decided that I'd wait for it to drop in price from £5.99. Not because it wasn't worth that, but because I knew it WOULD drop in price. So I swooped at £2.99. Now it's 59p. As much as I feel I got it for cheap anyway, I still feel a bit gutted when I miss out on an even cheaper price!
