** Apple's iPad Game of the Year and featured in the App Store Hall of Fame! **
Enter the Darwinian world of a galactic mote. To survive, absorb smaller organisms and grow—but beware of larger predators. Osmos features unique physics-based play, stellar graphics, and a hypnotic ambient soundtrack. Absorb or be absorbed!
“The ultimate ambient experience” — Gizmodo
“Beyond doubt, a work of genius" — GameAndPlayer.net
you must grow by absorbing smaller motes, but to propel yourself you must eject matter behind you, causing you to shrink. From this delicate balance, Osmos leads the player through floating playgrounds, competitive petri dishes, deep solar systems, and more.
“Named as iPad Game of the Year for a reason, Osmos is a fantastic game. A combination of physics, survival and classic eat em up” — WeDoCode
“Whether you're a child at heart who likes mucking about with single-cell organisms, or a strategist with a physics degree, this game will appeal to everyone.” — App Store review

Most amazing game ever
I have played this game for what seems like maybe 3 years now, and it never gets old (thanks to multiplayer mode).
I have purchased nearly the entire soundtrack on iTunes (minus "Multi-mote Theme", which I want so bad but can't find anywhere on the web).
I don't mean to be insulting, but you probably won't like this game if your IQ isn't at least circa 120.
Highly addictive - one of a kind
All you need to know: worth the price tag!
This game is a highly addictive-action-strategy-puzzle type amoeba, bigger the better, the only way to win is to be the biggest by absorbing smaller amoebas and to out smart other sentient hunters and evaders while conserving your own mass Hint: it costs mass to move.
Awesome game play and simplistic/intuitive controls are good enough but combined with amazing artwork and the most perfect trance like music soundtrack this game will be sure to keep you entertained. Just bring a power adapter and the developers highly recommend head phones.
If you've made it this far:
Just buy it already and thank me later.
One of a kind.
An amazing, intuitive, challenging game that manages to create a relaxing, almost meditative experience unlike anything else. Osmos' simplistic and beautiful visual design that contributes to the engaging, yet serene state of mind it allows the player to enter provides a stellar example of how games (even iOS games) are evolving into not only a credible art medium, but a truly exciting one.
