Karl’s Irish App of the Day: Gooboids


Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 14.11.51

Dublin based developer Kevin Bergin has released this addictive little game for both iOS and Android.

Like the best casual games, the idea is simple. Move your Gooboid (the little greenblue guy) around to gather energy and advance the levels all the while staying as close to but not touching the other Gooboids to get points.

It was so addictive I started carrying my horrible Galaxy S3 again just to play it.

The iOS version (which I only discovered this morning) unfortunately has my absolute bugbear issue of not being sized for the 5/5s/5c sized screen, but plays the exact same as the Android version.

Gooboids is available for free on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

    I’m guessing you mean the ‘little blue guy’.

    Otherwise I can’t see this game taking off.

      Please show the app you have coded, created graphics for and sent to market? I would love to see what your hard work and imagination has created, Prat. BTW I am no way involved in this app but like to see people do something genuinely creative instead of listening to negative begrudgers like you

      For a phone that cost me €500 it feels cheap and plastically. It doesn’t fit my hand properly so I keep knocking on the sound accidentally (driving me mad making noises) as well as constantly knocking the back button.
