App description: ** Apple's iPad Game of the Year and featured in the App Store Hall of Fame! **
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
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

a beautiful, absorbing experience." IGN

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

The best iPad game yet. IGN

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

What iPad Gaming Should Be All About Gizmodo

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

Its the best iPad game on the App Store MTV Multiplayer

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

Is this a really good game, gameplay wise? I mean, the graphics look stunning but there's more to games then graphics.

I know what TOFTT means, but what does it stand for?

I wish I could buy it and give my opinion on it, but I use Gift Cards and I'm currently holding only $1.33 in my account.

Download the demo for Mac/Win/Linux and try it out for yourself. It's a pretty zen sort of game, requiring patience and subtle gestures, but despite its abstract nature it's very atmospheric and draws you in quite effectively. I'll definitely be buying this tonight when it hits North American shores.

You can also get impressions from the Osmos iPad thread if you want, since the games will be essentially the same.
