Osmos Game Accessibility Review

ablegamers.com
31 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Osmos is a puzzle game that emphasizes size. You control a small sphere surrounded by other spheres and your job is to absorb smaller ones until you're big enough to complete a level. You control your sphere by positioning the mouse in the opposite direction of where you want to go, due to the fact that in order to propel yourself you must shoot out bubbles, which in turn reduces your size.

Expert Review

Video Game talk
9 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Originally built for the PC community, Osmos HD for the Apple iPad is a gorgeous consumption game that's similar to Sony's Flow for the Playstation 3. Simple in design, you play as a gelatinous blog called a mote that envelops other motes around it by simply touching them. The concept is beyond easy, but the strategic decisions made in real-time require patience and subtle movements to beat each level.

I apologize in advance for any biology-related discrepancies

  • Conclusion: Shouldn't my lifeform become intelligent at some point after consuming so many others?
  • Pros: Absorbing a big lifeform just slightly smaller than me.
  • Cons: Miscalculating my orbit in the sun levels and dying when I was close to finishing a level.

  • Conclusion: At least $10 worth of entertainment, especially if you're an electronica aficionado or an ambient game/puzzle junkie. The mid-game shift from "mellow" to "frantic" will lead many gamers to never complete it, however, and it will leave a bad taste in your mouth after the blissful sweetness of the early levels.

  • Conclusion: with them, with the goal being to become the biggest mote through osmosis. But gameplay isn’t as simple as it sounds. On many levels, there’s a “boss” mote that’s also combining with other motes, essentially trying to outgrow the gamer’s mote until the biggest mote absorbs the smaller ones. There are some distinct levels of gameplay.
