** 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
“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

What's New in Version 2.4.1
2.4.1: A few fixes.
As always, app updates reset reviews. (sniff sniff.) Refreshing/updating your review would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
• Background matchmaking: You can now play single-player levels while searching for a multiplayer match online.
• In-game video recording and/or broadcasting to Mobcrush or Periscope.
• You can now play multiplayer over 3G/LTE connections.
• Native screen resolution and 64-bit support for all your devices.
Note: 2.4.1 multiplayer is not compatible with earlier versions of Osmos. (Changes had to be made.) To play with your friends, please make sure they've updated as well.
Really fun game and was entirely worth it when I bought it for $4. It's similar to katamari damacy with some interesting twists. Multiplayer is fun although sadly they removed the ability to match up with friends, that said it usually works if you both seek a game at the same time. Additionally if you're in the same room you can also play multiplayer.
I've been playing this game for years. It's the closest thing to video game meditation I've ever seen. Deeply challenging in some places and at the same time straight forward. I love when I understand how any given level needs to be approached. I love the music as well. Thank you Osmos team for an incredible game.
I was in fear that this game was going to go out of date, happy is not the word, joy is the word, Thank you for the update. It remains, the only game I have kept on my two phones for more than 2 years!!!!! It is challenging and fun. Elegant in its simplicity , and pleasant to look at. The music choice is calming and etherial appropriate to this video game.
