“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

Fantastic game overall! We have this super interesting premise of playing as a lifeform who seeks to gain dominance over its competitors by systematically absorbing all lifeforms smaller than it. But the trick is that it can only accelerate by expelling mass, thus reducing its size. So the gameplay becomes a mix of patience, clever strategy, and the ever present luck. Main side challenges keep the game constantly entertaining as you progress through the levels. Apart from the ordinary "motes", you encounter other types of mote lifeforms such as biophobes, repulsors, attractors, and antimatter motes! Each of these presents a unique challenge to the level it inhabits. I must say kudos to the people responsible for such an interesting app game!
Creativity and beauty collide to form a stellar game!
First, I'd like to thank the developers at Hemisphere Games for creating such a beautiful game--it's like a game/interactive art piece! It's so refreshing to see something so unique that is also so well done. The design is very rich and the electronica background music is very fitting as well. There is an interesting anonymous, surreal, feel to the game. Also, I love the idea of mass and gravity playing key roles in gameplay. Get this game, better yet get it for an iPad and get big!
Never gets old
I love this game. It has a zen quality to it when you play alone with the music on, but is challenging as well. When you play against others, it's even more of a challenge. There is a great deal of variety with all the different types of games to play. I've had it for about two years and I still play it on a regular basis. Worth every penny!!!
