Osmos is one of those games you don’t forget about. This game is about starting out as a very tiny lifeform or “mote” expanding into the largest mote. The concept sounds rather dull, but it’s not just about expanding. Sometimes difficult puzzle-like scenarios will have to be solved for you to expand into the largest lifeform, such as avoiding matter.
The levels are very fun, but that’s not what drags you into the game. Osmos is loaded with a absolutely beautiful and hypnotic soundtrack that really sucks you into the game making it very difficult to put down. The game not only has a beautiful soundtrack but also has some very beautiful and unique graphics. The only downside to this is your battery drains a bit faster, but honestly, its worth it.
There are two versions of the game, one being the demo. The demo basically gives you two tutorial missions and then two or three more actual missions before they request that you pay for the full version which offers 72 levels. By the time you finish the demo you will want to purchase the full version. Also, Osmos is optimized for tablets and smartphones, so there’s no need to go looking for a 2nd version of it for the tablet.
I should also mention that the game has a outstanding physics engine for physics-based gameplay making the game also a challenge.
The first review on Google Play by Ryan says, “If you’re reading this, you’ve already set aside money for the game, you just don’t know it yet. One of the best mobile games yet, period.” It’s a true statement, once you enter the game and play for a bit, you’ve already set money aside for it.
A few other reviews:
“One of the best games we’ve played so far this year. An utterly serene, yes fiendishly complicated game…” – Macworld Editor’s Choice
“We are more than overwhelmed by Osmos… The game design is thoughtful and intuitive, new level structures are flawless, and the visuals are stunning yet simplistic… You just won’t find another experience quite like it.” – Slide To Play
“I got this to pass my time and now its taking all of it! What a beautiful game and it’s not as easy as some say. I love the graphics and the placid, peaceful music. It’s totally mesmerizing and a challenge.” – Margie
I’d highly suggest purchasing this game.
