World of Goo Coming to Android Tablets and Phones

I own several different copies of World of Goo, I was fortunate enough to get a review copy from 2D Boy, I bought it directly on release, I bought a copy on Steam, I have a copy on my Steam press account and I also bought it on iOS for my iPod Touch.

It will be available for both Android tablets and phones, and I can’t wait to play one of the most charming games ever once again. Goo!
