If you're new to World of Goo, there's no shortage of people who will plead its case or platforms to play on. I'm right there with them. After all these years, it remains a delight from damn near top to bottom.

World of Goo is a true classic, and it's revered for good reason. It's instantly accessible but with plenty of depth; it's paced out perfectly, with a steady stream of new tricks and techniques to learn; and its puzzles can be solved with forward-thinking, quick reflexes or a mixture of both. Wrapped up in a unique, pleasantly apocalyptic presentation, with co-op support and a harder 'OCD' mode for added replay value, this is a complete puzzle package. If you've played it previously, the Switch incarnation might be worth a second go for its portable pointer controls and on-the-go co-op, but if it's your first time into the World of Goo it's absolutely a must-play, and this is — in our minds — the definitive version.

Nearly ten years after its original appearance, World of Goo shows that it still retains the quality and the gameplay that made it stand out from its competitors. While the controls may not feel as correct as they did with the original Wii game, this is a valuable addition to the Nintendo Swtich catalogue thanks to World of Goo's magnificent audiovisual component, finely developed gameplay involving the laws of physics and large amount of content.
