** 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

Osmos Reviews

Beautiful graphics and sound, wonderful gameplay. Many have tried to copy it and none have come close. The high water mark for mobile games.

This is a mind relaxing game. If you need to get away from the noise of situation this is a great place to go!!!

Whens the next one coming out?

Incredible game, we loved it, we used to play it since 10 years, im playing it in 2023 right now everything is amazing about this game, music an be better, and more levels should be there, please give us Osmos 2.

However many years later.. How long has it been, like 7 years? And Im still playing this game. Its easy, fun, and challenging! Not hard at all to learn how to play either. We’ve read some reviews here stating that they cant figure it out or its designed to make you fail. Lol no dudes, this is an incredibly basic game thats perfectly balanced with strategy. Its honestly perfect in our opinion. Thanks to the creators! Wish you would make more levels or game modes or even update it sometime :)

We’ve been playing this for over a decade now and its by far our favorite game. Its become part of our meditation regimen. Theres something organic and natural about absorbing larger objects in a cosmic way. The gameplay and music is soothing.

We could play the game or listen to the audio track and fall asleep. We fine the gameplay meditative and it gets us out of our own mind.

Nice to find a quality game that doesnt nickel dime you. Just flat price and have fun.

We were a fan of a couple of the music artists already so that brought us to the game initially. Its remained one of favorite mobile games of all time. Still havent beat all the arcade levels tho… Gets very difficult!

Epic game underrated needs more people for online.

This game is timeless, and on all our devices. You HAVE to try it, this game does not disappoint.

Hands down the best mobile game. Just wish there were more players so that we could actually queue a multiplayer match.

We are still playing this game in 2022, we only paid $.99, we turn up the speed to fastest play we can play it,much more difficult, we wish they would develop osmos 2 or the next level, visualing stunning. Sometimes it feels like the game is alive, we even feel sorry for them when we have to take them out. We let them live as long as we canPlease make a new one Ill be your first to play it, even beta test. Dont charge a subscription service, we boycott those games. People would be flocking to it!

We have on this game for over eight years and we have it on every one of our devices its the perfect way to keep your mind up with your stress low. We dont normally write reviews but up is a must have for any business person.

Seriously great game played it in high school a lot.

We love this game so Much! It isnt to hard but hard enough for it to be !

Great game. Very cool concepts and graphics. We just with the multiplayer experience was a bit better. Seems to get a bit buggy. Other than that, probably one of most sophisticated yet simple games out there. Also, would love to see a relax modeLike ambient but with a world that has no borders, and a bit harder to die in.

Requires a great deal of patience, but if you can get that down tightened, then you will absolutely love this game. We dont even wanna call it a game. We want to call it a skill level, ours blowing adventure.

We were so bummed when it wouldn’t play bc there was no updated version compatible w our ios. Today we randomly searched it feeling nostalgic and there it is!!! So Zen. Beautiful music. Gorgeous colors. One of our absolute all time favorites.

So a few weeks ago we remembered this game from when we were younger and we couldnt remember the name and just today we found it and we were like OH MY GOD we NEED TO DOWNLOAD THIS and this game is very nostalgic to us so we have really enjoyed it so all 5.

Osmos has been out for a while, and is just as fun as the first day! Doesnt really need any updates.

Visually stunning with an ethereal audio experience that makes the game other worldly.

We really enjoy the game concept, graphics, and LOVE the music. Unfortunately for us, its still stressful. We were hoping to find a game to help with that as this has done for many others so we’ve read.

We really am a big fan of this game but it can be challenging to control but on the other hand it is just awesome.

Wish we could get our money back.

This would be 5 stars except that they have done nothing to take advantage of iphone13 pro displayit looks terrible on our phone. With this game concept theres such an opportunity to take advantage of a beautiful screen and really wow with the orb graphics, but as it is now, its blurry and underwhelming. This game is all about the ambiance, its got the sound part down, now it needs visuals to match. Disappointingfix it.

We need more online players. Nobody is online.

We wanted to like it but it just didnt work for us.

We hate when they insist on a review before we’ve played it.

Music you now have to buy. Why sell a game promoting the music and then have the customer buy the music if they want to listen to feature thats advertised in the game.

Great to pass the time in mellow serenity.

A great game that provides relaxing, ambient escape, while also giving a challenge to complete each level. Amazing game dynamic of propelling yourself by squirting away some of your mass, while needing to get big by absorbing smaller creatures and not getting absorbed yourself. We really wish they would create an expansion.

Title says all. Its perfect for its price.

We enjoy that each game only takes a few minutes and some levels are quite challenging.

Hope to see a graphics update sometime. Perfect otherwise.

We’ve been playing this game since the IPod generation and we have a iPhone and we love it that its here.

Hey guys, this game is incredible. We’ve been waiting for Osmos 2 forever now. Honestly, if you were about to release Osmos 5 and were charging $5 for each version we would be saying take our money – PLEASE! What are you waiting for???

We played this game years ago and then lost our phone. We could never remember the name of it. We just found it again and we couldnt be happier!

We’ve spent way too many hours playing this game. Its really good.

We love this game. This is our go-to game these days. Its beautiful. We think the music can be good, but we love the game without it too. Need something to wind down with before bed? Slow down time (you can do that with this game) and just let the current and the pretty lights take you. We do like some levels a LOT more than others. The Sentient levels are by our favorite. We’ve played them all 1000x by now, and they dont really get old for us. We almost wish theyd beef this game out with an expansion. Id definitely pay money, especially for more Sentient-like levels.

Challenging, atmospheric, visually pleasing. What more do you want from a 99 cent game? Buy this wonderful game and if nothing else, leave it on for the atmosphere it creates. Love it.

This game provides no clue how it is supposed to work. Absurd. Run away from this turkey.

We wish they would make more levels or challenges. We have gifted the app to several people, so we are all addicted to playing. Please update with more levels or challenges.

We started playing this entrancing game a few years ago, and we always come back to it! Would love a sequel in the future!

Well designed challenges are rendered beautifully. One of the rare games we play w sound.

This app is fun and calming and challenging everything you’d hope to expect of a mobile game.

Played it on PC years ago. A lot has been added, including multiplayer player (?!). Awesome chill game, perfectly priced. Hats off to the devs!
