Osmos+, a cosmic game of survival, now available on Apple Arcade

Osmos+ is now available on Apple Arcade, Apple’s U.S. $4.99/month or $49.99/year game streaming service that has over 200 games. Apple Arcade is also available as part of the Apple One bundle.

Osmos+ is available for the iPhone and iPad, but not, sadly, for the Mac or Apple TV set-top box. Here’s how it’s described: 

Enter the Darwinian world of a galactic mote. Grow by absorbing smaller motes—but beware of being absorbed yourself.

Osmos+ features unique physics-based play, stellar graphics, and a hypnotic ambient soundtrack.

Navigate through floating playgrounds, competitive petri dishes, deep solar systems, and more.

The key is to balance mass and movement: to propel yourself you must eject matter behind you, causing you to shrink. Use it wisely.

Whether you’re a child at heart who likes mucking about with single-cell organisms, or a strategist with a physics degree, this game is for you.
