Enter the ambient world of Osmos: elegant, physics-based gameplay, dreamlike visuals, and a minimalist, electronic soundtrack.

Your objective is to grow by absorbing other motes. Propel yourself by ejecting matter behind you. But be wise: ejecting matter also shrinks you. Relax… good things come to those who wait.

Superb game, most of the time you just have to get biggest, which is very difficult at times. Recommended!

Osmos is a very fun, addictive game. The goal of the game is to consume other motes but not get consumed yourself. You can propel yourself forward by releasing matter of yourself behind you with the mouse. This make you shrink. You start off the game on a few tutorial levels and get a sample of the three game types and then you can choose your own path. The types of game modes are a relaxing mode, an orbit mode where everything is orbiting around a central object, and a mode where you have to eat a certain creature before it eats you. The game generates random variations of levels so there is always something new. You can zoom in and out of the view and speed up and slow down time also. The game features a relaxing soundtrack and great visuals. I highly recommend Osmos. It is a great ambient game.
