Go as fast as you can! They are stronger than you think... They will have to work together to climb very high... a real Tower of Goo! Some of them felt they had done something like this a long long time ago... but things were more experimental back then.

[Tower of Goo]

Tower of Goo is a level in the video game World of Goo. It is the tenth level of Chapter 1. In this level, the player must use Black Goo to build a tower to the exit pipe. This level is similar in basic design to Going Up but the exit pipe is placed much higher, you have more Goos, and you must collect more Goos to complete the level or get OCD.


Build a strong base, and if you find any weak spots on the tower, patch them up. You don't need a degree in Goo Tower Mastery to complete this level, but as long as you can build a decent tower (better chance if it's a pyramid) it shouldn't be all that hard.

OCD Strategy

One of the harder OCDs, you have to make it to the pipe using only 40 or less Goos. It's almost impossible to get enough support, and at one point you won't even be able to make hexagons. You'll just have to build upwards and hope you can get there before your tower collapses.


  • The sign on this level quotes "They felt like they had done something like this before. But things were more experimental back then". This is a reference to the game's prototype, Tower of Goo. The name is a reference to the prototype as well.
