Description

** 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

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 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

Reviews
Cool soundtrack and mesmerizing graphics.
MStyles on 6/26/2017
I haven't played this in awhile and just picked it back up. A better challenge for physics minded types, but without the math.
Best iOS game of all time
Caleban on 6/24/2017
I love this game, how beautiful it looks, the way it works on an ios device, how long I can play it without getting bored.
Fun.
GnosticHammer on 6/18/2017
Love the game. Very beautiful. Keep me captivated. Ran through it too quickly.
Just one problem
Yellow fire 3601110 on 6/13/2017
I deleted the game for now because the mechanics are to uncomfortable. If you simply add in a new moving system then I will start playing again
I've always loved Osmos
otokoyama on 6/12/2017
From the beautiful and simplistic game play to amazing and great attention to in game physics, Osmos is entrancing, interesting and a great stress reliever. It's one of the few apps I've kept on my phone not long after the iPhone came out. This game should get nothing less than 10 stars EVER.
Simple and Fun
Markymarkmarkington on 6/9/2017
What a great game! The mechanics are simple yet engaging. The control is well-suited to mobile devices. All in all very well designed!
Simply ... one of the best game you can find.
whm125 on 6/4/2017
6/5 stars.... yep, it is that awesome!
So fun!
Maaaahb2 on 6/2/2017
Great, unique, game. Definitely worth checking out.
Awesome game
Killer_N on 6/1/2017
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.
Astounding immersive experience
Dave-K on 6/1/2017
This game is an ethereal work of art. The incredible graphics transport you to the far ends of some unknown universe, where you can play many single player challenges and once you've got the necessary skills, you can go up against players around the world. One feature I miss is the audio chat that was built in previously. It turns out I Med one of my great lifetime friends on osmos so I'm ever grateful for all the superb programming that made it possible. There is this other game called Agar.io that is some kind of faint shadow of what osmos is, that tries to be similar. Osmos is just galaxies better. The meta games in the game are great. Just look at master osmos gameplay on YouTube for an example of my gameplay from a few years ago. I'm glad they are updating the software and I hold out hope they will expand the game and add new features for the billion plus iOS users out here.
Osmos
Osmiasf1988 on 6/1/2017
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.
Buy this game
DHawlSmalls on 5/31/2017
If you only can get one game it should be this one, you won't regret it. Beautiful graphics and sound design, mesmerizing, addictive, and infinitely replayable! Keep the updates coming, and release an app version of Karmaka already!!
Best game
hafman42 on 5/31/2017
My favorite iOS game. Played since it came out. Refreshing my review after the update. Osmos is still my favorite game
Brilliant, Relaxing
NewZack on 5/31/2017
Sometimes I play games at night to help my mind settle down, and this game is quite relaxing. I enjoy it enormously. It's just difficult enough to keep the attention, but not so much to be frustrating.
Awesome!
Lemmot on 5/31/2017
Still fun as ever and I love the calming music!!!
Good
Kungurofgfg on 5/31/2017

Thank you for updating!
/dev/zero/99 on 5/31/2017
I was just lamenting that I would no longer be able to play this soon because it was 32 bit, and lo and behold here is an update to 64 bits. For free! Thanks!
Love this game
GordonChil on 5/31/2017
App refresh resets reviews. I haven't reviewed it before so here I go. This game is very well made. I've had it since it was first released on the iPad. I keep going back to it because it's so pleasing to play.
Awesome game

Will you marry me, Osmos? I will always be true to you. Beautiful game. Gameplay is still fresh. Music and audio design are perfect. Amazing.
Easy to learn, difficult to master
Klug <Bastion> on 5/6/2017
The best games are easy to learn yet difficult to master. Osmos is exactly that. It's replayable for years (I have had it since 2011). Get it!
An all-time classic

Literally just checked yesterday to see if there had been an update. So happy to see a new release was finally made. Super happy with the new release and features. If you need a great game to pass the time this is it!
Amazing
Nathan 4040 on 5/5/2017
One of the best games that I have. Play it now and again. It's so great, totally worth having.
What happened to the music?
Nathanael on 5/5/2017
About time. Almost four years between updates. Everything seems to work OK, except I can't hear any music, regardless of whether I restart the app or change the music volume in settings.
Amazing game updated for new iOS
hecteuro on 5/5/2017
One of my favorite games and the developer came back to update it for newer iOS devices and 64-bit around four years after the last update 👍👍.
Awesome
Rellite on 5/5/2017
Love the game-nice new future-proof update!!
No issues at all
jnyc10306 on 5/5/2017
I've had this game for years. It's made it through 4 phones. Ambient sound is awesome and the game plays perfect. It's one of a kind.
Awesome game!
€hris on 5/5/2017
I love it. The music the visuals the gameplay. Who knew osmosis could be so fun? I sure didn't back in Physical Science class. 😫🙃🤓
Fantastic classic iOS game
D muck on 5/5/2017
Had to come back and give credit after reviews reset. This is a game pretty much any iOS user should play… Simple, immersive, satisfying.
Good game
