World of Goo, by indie developer 2D Boy, is a highly addictive physics-based puzzle/construction game that has won several design and gaming awards since its release. The basic objective of the game is to get a requisite number of goo balls to a pipe, which represents the exit. The goo balls can be used to make bridges, towers, and other structures to overcome gravity and terrain. Currently, the game is available on a number of platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, iOS, and Wii; and earlier today 2D Boy announced that the game would finally be coming to Android tablets and smartphones "soon."

Physics-based games, such as Angry Birds, Shoot U!, and Newton, have become incredibly popular with the growth of touch based devices and World of Goo for Android, dubbed "GooDroid," is likely to become another hit.

There is no word yet on a specific release date, however, 2D Boy has confirmed that they are "working out the final kinks in the machinery" and that there will be more info on GooDroid "soon." There is also no indication of pricing, however the iOS version of this game costs $4.99 and owing to its popularity, the Android version ought to be similarly priced upon launch.

    Funny thing is I sent them an email yesterday morning asking if we'd be seeing the game on Android anytime soon. I got a reply in the afternoon along the lines of "yes, it's coming... stay tuned!" Later in the evening, BOOM, the announcement drops. Talk about timing!
