Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Osmos. The game features unique, physics-based gameplay, and challenges players to grow their "mote" by absorbing smaller motes. Osmos includes 47 levels, unlockable content, the ability to play random versions of any level, and a soundtrack featuring the music of Loscil, Gas/High Skies, Julien Neto, and Biosphere.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

Osmos is hard. The early levels, where it's just you and other motionless entities, are nothing more than a warmup. In the later levels, you have to chase down entities that also move themselves and eat things, you have to navigate around a gravity anomaly without getting sucked in, you have to deal with antimatter, and you have to conserve every last chunk of yourself. If you make a single mistake, you'll have to start the level again from scratch. It's unforgiving, but insanely addictive.

The only real disappointment on the gameplay side is that it's over too quickly. The levels number in the dozens, but the easier levels can be beaten in a minute or two. Once you get into the groove and spend the hours required to beat the tougher levels, the rest of Osmos goes without a hitch. Thankfully, the levels you've beaten already retain their addiction even after you've beaten them. You won't spend that much time to beat the game the first time, but you might find yourself playing again for half an hour or so occasionally.
