Product Description

****NEW MULTIPLAYER****
* Play against your friends and enemies locally via wi-fi! 6 distinct Arenas: Ambient, Impasse, Solar, Warped Chaos, Epicycles, and introducing… Antimatter Impasse.
***Please note that local multiplayer between iPhone/iPad and Android is not yet supported.

Enter the Darwinian world of a galactic mote. To survive, absorb smaller organisms and grow—but beware of larger predators! Winner of multiple "Game of the Year" awards, Osmos features unique physics-based play, stellar graphics, and a hypnotic soundtrack of ambient electronica. Absorb, or be absorbed.

“The ultimate ambient experience” — Gizmodo

THE CRUX:
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 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.” — player review

5.0 out of 5 stars Floating Orb Bliss December 28, 2012
Osmos is hypnotic in a wonderful way. Slowly propel your little orb through space. Suck up orbs smaller than you, avoid larger orbs lest you be sucked up. Sounds simple. Engrossing to play.

Each level presents a different challenge; you may have to strategically push large orbs away with your propulsion blast while staying out of harm's way yourself, you may be circling a gravity mass while using your propulsion to change the shape of your orbit to best avoid or collide with other orbs, or you may be chasing intelligent blobs around a field as you each race to become the largest.

This game is part puzzle game, part relaxation tool, part geometry and gravity experiment. Being able to easily adjust how quickly time passes as you glide is a nice touch.

The background ambient music adds to the entrancing effect for the most part. There's one track I find irritating and distracting, but that's just personal opinion. For the most part the music is great.

I've spent way too much time on this game. Make sure to have a clock nearby as you play, lest you find yourself awake far past your bedtime.

I should also mention this is the first and only game I have purchased. I consider it well worth the money. (Purchased through Play Store.)

UPDATE: 9/12/2013
My original review below was for a PREVIOUS VERSION of this game. When I wrote it, I considered it one of my top 5 favorite games on Android. In fact, I have three versions of this game and have bragged about how wonderful Osmos is to just about everyone I know and even a few strangers.

So imagine how sad and disappointed I was that the Osmos creators chose to stop selling or updating the "full" game anymore, and chose to start charging owners additional money for elements of the game they've already paid for.

I'm feeling quite betrayed over this, and can't bring myself to recommend this game to a single person again.

What a shame.

--- ORIGINAL REVIEW: This is a Breathtakingly Beautiful Game, with an Equally Stunning Soundtrack ---

The epic nature and grandeur of Osmos cannot be overstated. This is one of the rare "top shelf" games that grace we Amazonians once in a while. I certainly put this in the same category as World of Goo and Plants vs. Zombies.

Simply, the objective (in most cases) is to grow to a certain size by absorbing smaller spheres without being absorbed by something larger or to be swallowed by the gravitational center in some levels. There aren't very many levels, but in this case that's just fine, because the richness of the existing levels combined with the length of each of the levels make for a fulfilling experience.

Osmos is NOT for the impatient! It takes patience - a LOT of patience - and finesse to meet the objectives, which is essentially to grow bigger by absorbing smaller spheres. There was a FAOTD recently,

5.0 out of 5 stars fun & addictive. December 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
this is a really cool game with great graphics and music. it is very easy to get immersed in this game (especially with headphones) but it's not so easy to conquer the challenges! the challenge changes on each level, though the basics of gameplay stay the same, so it doesn't get boring. you can zone out and play the game at its slow starting speed, or you can swipe right-to-left to speed up "time" which makes everything move faster and speeds up the music as well. you can slow down again by swiping the other way. i haven't gotten past the third level yet because it can get pretty hard pretty fast, but it's still fun and relaxing. if you're really stuck you can access the menu to skip to the next level. it helps to spend some time practicing the controls until movement becomes intuitive.

i am surprised that more people haven't tried & reviewed this game, because it is very high-quality and definitely worth two dollars, if you can spare them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing Game December 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
Looking for a game to help you relax? Osmisos, especially with headphones, does it for me. The gentle music and relative simplicity let your mind rev down from lifes hectic pace. Don't think this is mindless though, as you progress, it does get more challanging, all without gunfire or explosions. Quite entertaining without being overstimulating

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing ... then ROUGH! March 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
I spent a few days with this game earlier this year, and enjoyed the heck out of it. Good to see it on Amazon's FAOTD. The simple premise(s) are easy to learn (I played on my Kindle Fire), and the music is wonderful. It's a great game to play with headphones.

All modes (orbit, anti-matter, etc.) are played with the same control, and your objectives, layout, and 'enemies' are lightly different. And there's free-play mode as well, but I don't recall if that's available from the start of the game, or if you have to complete most of the levels first.

One neat feature is having the ability to speed up or slow down your orbits/movements. This is useful when things are very very tight (slow down!), or when they're very very drawn out (long, slow-speed orbits).

The levels get HARD ... and by 'hard', I mean that you just need a LOT more patience than I have. There are some Youtube videos of upper level boards being accomplished, and they can take up to 30 minutes to complete. If I had spent half that time, only to get nailed by a red or green bloboid and have to start over, I'd probably throw my tablet at the nearest wall!
