Road Blocks is a level in the video game World of Goo. It is the fifth level of Chapter 4. Block Goo makes its first appearance here. Player must build a bridge across the large gap to reach the pipe. The amount of usable Black Goos is small, but Block Goos can be used to build a supporting pillar for a bridge to support it.



It shouldn't be too hard to build up with the Block Goo and then use it as bridge support. Use any Blocks.

OCD Strategy

Of course, the best option is vertical rectangles for this, but squares work too.


  • This is the first level in Chapter 4 with more than two colors. Despite that, the main color scheme is gray and brown with excessive glowing effect. This may be a reference to the color scheme of many current-generation video games. As the Sign Painter suggests, the level is most likely supposed to be a digital illusion of real life.
  • Whenever the Screamer background music is used, a unique atmosphere is found in the level.
