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

Two game modes: Odyssey and Arcade. Odyssey mode is a 27-level guided tour through the Osmos Blobiverse, while Arcade mode allows you to play any level type at your choice of difficulty.

"Arcade mode" is simply odyssey mode with each of the 27 levels on different difficulty levels.
The dev isn't very smart in how it presents it, it's not the same levels, ie a more difficult level of a given type is really a different level. The 47 levels in Mac/PC version are in fact a subset of iPad levels. I haven't unlock all ipad levels but it seems there's 72 levels on ipad and it's really different levels. But also all the 27 levels of Odyssey mode are including in the 72 Arcade levels.

So I switched from GameCenter to OF in this game, but now I can't find a way to switch back. Anyone aware of a way?

I read on the Kotaku comments section that the devs of Osmos were working on a sequel to drop7?

Anybody know anything about that?

Yeah! Just bought it. Another game for the iPad 2 backlog, once I get my iPad.
