First, thanks for the promo code, downloaded and installed the game, played the first 4 levels and so far is great, its a game that makes you think and I like that, not always like to kill everything on sight , one suggestion is to change the restart button to actually restart the whole level and add a << to rewind your moves, sometimes is better to start over... other than that, good game so far... there are 80 levels, more to come soon, adorable cute characters, matching music. Impressions soon, as soon as I figure out the 4th level solution and play a bit more

EDIT: Finished level 4, onto the 5th... I just realized this is a match-3 game, nice... one of the best iPhone (and overall) genres for me, going to have fun here

The undo button on the left just steps back per move, but in the options menu (the button on the right) there is a "restart puzzle" option.

Thanks for playing! There is a thread in our forums here that shows the solutions for all puzzles in the first area, if you get totally stuck...which you might.

Thanks for the code.

Graphics are good. Simple but effective.

Puzzles are quite challenging. I got totally stuck on level 6. From a gamers perspective, you might lose people, particularly if people can't get past puzzles after just a couple. You might want to "dumb down" at least the first page of puzzles.
The alternative I guess is to glorify how difficult this puzzler is likely to be. You will have a smaller fan base though likely.

Very challenging, slider type, that could easily turn people's brain to mush. Mechanics work perfectly, and the option of single vs restart moves is great. Some people may claim these are easy, but these people are probably Rainman

I hope this does well for you.

Yeah, this is something we are a little undecided on. After the initial "tutorial" puzzles all puzzles in an area are accessible, so if you get stuck you can easily try another puzzle, and you only need 15 (out of 20) to unlock the next area. Maybe this needs to be communicated better.
But in the end we do like the challenge it gives. Overall there will be puzzles you can clear instantly, some that are just fun, and some that will bork your brain something rotten.

It's one of those "it's easy if you know how" type puzzles. You may find a puzzle that totally stumped you is very easy when looking at it with fresh eyes.

This is a very nicely polished puzzle game with cute and attractive graphics. I am finding the puzzles to be quite challenging, but interesting enough to persevere. Anyone up for a good puzzler challenge will enjoy Osmosis.

Thanks to the developer for posting solutions to the early puzzles on his website, but I must resist the temptation to look...

Thanks for the feedback, guys!
Speaking to others too I really do feel we may have created the biggest brain-bender on the AppStore, hehe.

We just posted a little "making of" devblog post on our site for those interested in either Osmosis itself or getting a little peek at how it was made, linky link.
