** Apple Design Award winner and iPad Game of the Year! **
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
“The best iPad game yet.” — IGN
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

Great game, want more
I have been playing this game for almost a month now. At first, I didn't really perceive how short the game was; I finished the Odyssey in about one week, and then mastered three arcade levels. I have played several multiplayer games. However, most of the time I go on multiplayer I am unable to find someone to compete with.I would like more people to download this game.
They would not be disappointed with the three modes. There is nothing else like this game, and if you are new with the iPad, this game would help you learn the simple gestures, as they are used throughout the game.
This is probably the best game for a tablet that I've yet found. Challenging, never boring, not glitchy, and very different. I consider games like Myst and Riven the standard to live up to. This is nothing like them, but on par as far as maintaining interest. If you're more interested in puzzles (this qualifies in an oblique sense, in that it becomes increasingly urgent to determine which direction to go), than shoot 'em ups, this is a great game. It's like the game that "Asteroids" always wanted to be (now I'm revealing my age). Top notch. Not a stupid "find the hidden PITA object" game. Much better entertainment and challenge.
Love it (I just had massive expectations)
A friend a year or so ago recommended this game to me and I only just downloaded this a few days ago. I had an unrealistic hope that the world, or whatever it should be called, would be endless and the game would just keep going. Sadly, no.
But this game is still great! Some levels and difficulty settings and slight variations. You will never play the same level twice. It's quite a relaxing game, and the sounds are cool too, though I usually just listen to my music with it.
