a beautiful, absorbing experience… brilliant to look at… the best videogame music I've heard… will make you forget your cares and immerse you in the game… you'll find yourself returning for the experience. 8.5! Editor’s Choice Award.
IGN

wonderful gameplay… beautifully polished and tantalizingly atmospheric… Osmos mixes puzzle, action and strategy remarkably and all the while does it with great finesse and style.
indiegames.com

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

an almost transcendental video game experience… a stellar example of electronic music's potential impact on indie video game production.

Hemisphere Games is a Canadian developer company that released Osmos back in 2009. They give you the opportunity to control a... well... cell. You need to find other cells that are smaller than you so that you can absorb them and grow bigger. This concept, of course, also means that you need to avoid bigger cells until you are big enough to absorb those, as well. If I remember correctly the criterion on each level is always to become quite big (not necessarily to absorb all the cells on the map).

I like how you need to proper yourself ahead to gain momentum - in the process you are losing matter so you cannot really do this forever as you are gradually becoming smaller. Patience is a virtue!

There are several levels and all are part of 3 major zones - each require you to follow a different playstyle and some of the later levels can be pretty challenging.

The game has an excellent soundtrack full of ambient tracks. They accompany this unique gameplay perfectly. I believe Osmos is one of those indie games that is a must-have.

You remember the first evolution stage in Spore? Someone decided to make a full game out of that and it surprisingly ended up being pretty good.
You start off as a little cell in a large map and grow by absorbing other cells, but to do that you will have to move, which costs a bit of your own cell, depending on your current size. Continue to grow until the game says "all right, that's enough, you can move on to the next one now.". And that's about it. There's a couple of little gimmicks here and there and different gravity every now and then, but that's about it. Critics often say that Osmos is a very relaxing and immersive game. Immersive, yes. Relaxing? Hell no. Once you get to the harder stages, the game starts getting pretty frustrating and relies on some luck under certain circumstances. During some of the last stages, I was moving myself very carefully, hoping to god that I wouldn't get killed by one of the larger cells that was barely a pixel away from me. So yeah, claiming the game's relaxing is a lie to the biggest degree.
As for the presentation, I like it. All the cells look great and filled with little details when looked at from up close, but as for the backgrounds, they're basically non-existant. Not that I have a problem with it, considering you're going to focus on the cells for 99,98% of the game.
If there's one thing that Osmos is known for, though, it's without a doubt the music. The OST's been praised for being, well... good. And in this case, I can't deny the soundtrack's pretty damn good. (even though it really doesn't fit in with the player desperately hoping things don't go horribly wrong every stage)
Overall, Osmos is pretty fun, but for 10 bucks, I can't recommend it at that price, but if you can find it on a sale, I'd definately recommend it in that case.

This game is very casual, rules are very simple, and the physics are straightforward. Some very interesting puzzles from some very simple rules.

On the earliest levels it's more of a puzzle, but later it becomes clear. This _is_ what Spore _should_ have made the first primordial life level as. This plays perfectly - but it's more challenging than Spore could afford to make their game (because they were making a game targetted at 5 year olds - but marketted to adults - and Will Wright no more pizza for you, but I digress).

Because you're ejecting your own body weight in order to move, the game is seeing whether it's worth sacrificing size for speed in order to eat other bubbles, and also to avoid bubbles that are big enough to eat you.

I've seen so many strategy games with a similar objetive: you play as a floating entity, and absorb things surrounding you to become larger. However, this game inarguably stands out from the others. Osmos whisks away the competition with a refreshing experience that will leave you challenged yet relaxed. It's minimalism done right: simple, yet polished and elegant. What more can you ask from a game like this?


Oh, and for someone like me who is constantly anxious, finding a semi-relaxing video game that isn't boring is difficult. Soooo, thumbs up!


(Side Note: I got this game as part of a recent Humble Bundle, but I definitely think it would be worth purchasing for the full price.)

Beautiful, simple, sweet, great soundscape. I seriously doubt you'll be dissapointed with this one. It does have a short lifespan, but you'll enjoy the trip (kinda like Portal 2, but more "ethereal"). Worth the money!

OK, everyone knows the game spore right? Right. Well my favorite part of that game was the cell stage. This is like the cell stage of spore but it never ends. Very fun game, albeit difficult but very fun. I recommend it to anyone who can relate to this review.

This is a seriously inventive puzzler, although I found it to be pretty tough most of the time. I recommend it, especially since indie developers should be commended for breaking out of the mold like this, but a great deal of patience (and, seemingly, luck) is required to make much headway in this game.

Osmos is a game about particul's life, growing by eating other particuls ...

Nice music, relaxing game, playable in my browser (bought on humble) and increasing difficult.
Played before buying on steam, and it's really a nice game

The amount of time I have in this game is minimal, but it's been such a great experience so far...so I decided to write this review right away! With the physics of propulsion, and the fundamental aspect of Predator vs Prey and the food chain, this game is great for getting kids engaged with basic physics. As a teenager however, I thoroughly enjoyed this game as I was introduced to new vocabulary such as 'biophobe' and more. There is seemingly no story-line (which is not a bad thing in this case). I absolutely love this game and recommend it to everyone! At first, this did not seem like my kind of game, but venturing further, I can say that I absolutely love this game.

10/10 - Great job

Short Verdict: Osmos is a physics game where you control a sphere (some kind of cell? I'm not 100% sure if it's in space or in a microscopic environment) in order to eat the smaller ones so you can grow. Let's say I enjoyed this game for about 10 stages, then I kept going just because of the achievements. But it got harder and harder and even harder, until the point I was stuck for 3 hours on the same stage and it was wise to just rage quit. In the end, despite its qualities, it wasn't fun to play. Whoever tagged this as "Relaxing" definitely haven't played enough.

Pros:
  • I think it's safe to say its physics aspects are spot-on: gravity, orbits, momentum, action and reaction etc.
  • Graphics are beautiful in a simplistic, clean way
  • There's a great variety of levels--some rely more on skills and agility, others are more focused on puzzle and strategy
  • Being able to play procedurally generated versions of a level you're having trouble with is a great feature that might help you move on

Cons:
  • The speed flow was the most annoying thing to me. Some levels get waaaaay too slow, even on the fastest speed. It's even more irritating when you're retrying a level for the 213048th time.
  • Controls aren't as intuitive as one would hope--it gets better with practice, but it remains relatively weird
  • The BGM used could be nice in a different context, but when you're on a stage for 10 minutes, for the 213048th time, those interesting noises are just obnoxious (even though it's quality music).
  • Moves way too fast from easy to insanely hard
  • Made me actually dizzy and I caught myself biting my nails after many, many, many years--I'm serious! Osmos is anything but relaxing!

Bought on / for: Humble Mozilla Bundle by Humble Bundle for an average of US$ 0.20 (R$ 0.50). Can't say I feel bad for spending that money on this game, since it was fun for a while, but I wouldn't deliberately spend any money on it had I known what I do now.

Sadly very disappointed in this game. The music is lovely, the graphics are nice, but rather than being a relaxing puzzler as listed it is instead infuriating with little beyond blind luck guiding you through some levels.
