World of Goo heading to iPad

Plus, 2D Boy talks sequel plans.

Good news: ace physics-based puzzler World of Goo is heading to the iPad. Better news: it'll be ready any day now.

Developer 2D Boy announced on its website that the game will be out "As soon as we get approved by Apple. We hope before the holiday season."

2D Boy promises that it's exactly the same game that we awarded 10/10 back in 2009 on PC and WiiWare, right down to the multiplayer.

"Yes, you can play 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."

The release is iPad only for now, but a future iPhone release hasn't been ruled out.

"Maybe," explained 2D Boy. "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."

The two-man indie development powerhouse added that plans for World of Goo 2 are also under consideration.

"A second World of Goo is a possibility, and something we would enjoy working on. Working together again on WogPad has reminded us how fun it was to make the original.

"A second World of Goo will need to feel like a perfect and appropriate continuation of the first game. No Red Bull Can levels or rapping Goo cutscenes, according to our official design doc."

WogPad? Woah Nelly. We're going to fire off an email now and let them know what that word means round these parts.
