Flying Machine is a level in the video game World of Goo. It is the eighth level of Chapter 1. This level introduces Balloon Goo and Dark Black Goo. The Balloon Goo must be used to open gates and lift other Goo Balls to the exit pipe. This is the first level in which the player must use buoyancy to their advantage.


None, really. Attach the Balloon Goo to the metal and it'll rise. Then attach the rest to the Goo structure.

OCD Strategy

It may take a few tries. Immediately lift the metal, and when you're transporting the structure to the pipe, detach the Balloons and attach them to the structure to make it rise faster. If you don't get it on the first try, quit the level and return to it. It'll replay the level's preview, which will give you some more time to react at the beginning of the level.
