[The Red Carpet]

The Red Carpet is a level in the video game World of Goo. It is the tenth level of Chapter 2. In this level, the player must accomplish a variety of tasks. They have to use Green Goos to cover a large gap, then must use White Goo to to pull down a weight which extends a "Red Carpet Extend O Matic", allowing Red Beauty Goo to move across the pit covered with Green Goos to reach a tunnel which will shoot the Beauty Goo upwards where it will be lead into some gears. Finally, player must use Green Goo to extend the structure to the red pipe, allowing the newly formed Small Beauty Goos to enter it.

The music used in the level, which is known by the same name, was originally provided to be a joke sort of song in Kyle Gabler's earlier years.

Easy way

A White Goo structure does not have to be built to extend the "Red Carpet Extend O Matic". Instead, a White Goo can be thrown right beside the Red Beauty Goo. From there, it can be thrown hard against the 'Matic for it to extend. This saves a lot of moves.

It is possible to get OCD on here by constantly throwing White Goos. By doing so, you break up the structure, get one small structure to the pipe and collect Beauty Goos.

Please note this is much harder than it sounds. This gives a total of 0 moves.


Start by making a bridge out of the Green Goo so that the Beauty Goo can safely cross. After, start building with the White Goo to make a tower heavy enough to push down the weight. If the Beauty Goo doesn't make it across the bridge, give it a boost. From here, it's possible, yet quite difficult, to build up to the pipe. It should be easier if you use the leftover White Goos.

OCD Strategy

As mentioned in the section "Easy way", a tower of White Goo isn't needed as you can simply throw a Goo over the spiked carpet and start bashing it.


  • Only the first part of the music heard in the soundtrack is actually used in-game.
