App 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 growbut 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
The best iPad game yet. IGN

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

What iPad Gaming Should Be All About Gizmodo

5/5 - Macworld Editors Choice - One of the best games weve played so far this year. An utterly serene, yet fiendishly complicated game that deserves a place in every iPad owners collection. MacWorld

4/4, Must Have - We are more than overwhelmed by Osmos for iPad The game design is thoughtful and intuitive, new level structures are flawless, and the visuals are stunning yet simplistic every iPad owner should have Osmos on their device. You just wont find another experience quite like it. Slide To Play

Osmos HD is THE game for the iPad. Pocket Lint

Its the best iPad game on the App Store MTV Multiplayer

The first proper breakout hit for the iPad. Osmos feels so natural and enjoyable to play, even when the difficulty ramps up and you find yourself repeatedly careening into a giant gaseous enemy. Wired

5/5 - Osmos is an absolute must that will change the way you think of games, and what you expect from them. AppAdvice

Beyond doubt, a work of genius... a relaxing, meditative experience about going with the flow... It all adds up to something otherworldly and just . . . incredible. GameAndPlayer.net

Man, this game plays so well on the new ipad now. The new ipad retina graphics are great! And I love playing bluetooth with my friends, and I can even play between my new ipad and my iphone4 so anyone can play with me even if they don't have an ios device.

This game was made for the new ipad since the real estate is so big. Really cool game!

Last night I played Osmos the right way for the first time: turn the speed to the slowest, and move with only 1 push or 2. The experience was exhilarating, I completed Odyssey and 3 Arcade sets. Now I know true patience.

Playing: Corridor Z, Goblin Sword, Lost Toys, Duet Game, Layton Brother, Threes!, Solomon's Keep, Crabitron, Punch Quest, IB3, Sword & Sworcery (Recommend them all!)

I saw this thread being resurrected after being inactive since 2012.

I echo the previous poster about the need to practice EXTREME PATIENCE with this game. The game demands true patience and persistence. It was a game that I tried nearly two years ago but found the game to be too difficult to continue. However, just earlier this year, I decided to retry to play the entire game again and finally beat the game, including beating the dreaded Epicycles 8 and Epicycles 9 that were just absurdly difficult to do on a touch screen.

Looking back, this was truly a deceptively challenging game in which it was easy to master the early levels but nearly impossible to finish the last few. Despite its extreme difficulty, the presentation is awesome and the buttery smooth graphics while modeling hundreds of planets oribiting around each other is just an amazing programming achievement.

As i get farther & farther this game gets better & better. Its so nice to just sit back relax & take a game slow. It makes you think & solve at a pace that is perfect. Its beautiful to play & a real gem. Id love to see some new levels in the future. Really dont want to be done with this game.
