Game: World of Goo (Wii) Click for more info

Here's a cute little Wii Ware game, the concept of which will appeal to anyone who was a fan of Lego, Mecchano or any of those other construction sets things.

The aim of the game is basically to use Goo to construct a pathway to a pipe or goal. However, as you've probably guessed by the name, Goo isn't very rigid and so is at the mercy of gravity (Goo collapses under its own weight), wind and other environmental influences meaning that you have to construct your structure in imaginative ways to succeed.

And that's about it really. As usual it's the simple concepts which prove to be the most engaging; World of Goo is accessible to everyone and we've even been playing it as a group, huddled around the screen collectively figuring out the best engineering method to build a bridge across a chasm. Good stuff!
