  1. This crafty and calming puzzle game won't addict you, but it will lull you into the occasional trance.

    Osmos fits snugly into the Zen genre: the music is ambient, the visuals minimalist, and the risk/reward mechanic demands a measured approach. [Nov 2009, p.131]

    Independent arcade surprises with a polished game, physics and strong concept. But frustrating moments and overall shortness kills the fun make it forgettable. [Issue#189]
  4. If your nerves are shot to pieces with the glut of zombie gore 'em ups out there Osmos will do a sterling job of rubbing those aching temples and making the nightmares go away.

Make one or two mistakes and it's over... you have to start the level from the beginning. Very frustrating. In advanced levels you'd better count on your luck. Full Review »
