Osmos is a captivating action game based on the laws of physics, more exactly, the interaction between amoeba-like motes. This program provides you with useful information regarding the particle's characteristics and can be considered a helpful source of physics knowledge.

Although the graphic engine might appear as simple, the visual effects are definitely a nice addition to the game along with the background music. The game brings you a wide range of challenging levels, mixing strategy and action in a unique manner. For each puzzle, you get hints that help you complete the level as well as learn a few things about the third law of action-reaction issued by the well-known physicist Newton.

Using your mouse, you propel your mote next to other motes to grow. Of course, there are impediments on the way or else it wouldn't be challenging. If you touch attractors, repulsors or intelligent motes, the level restarts.

I can say only good things about this game: amazing gameplay, well-polished graphics and impressive background music which surely catches the attention of both dedicated players and casual gamers. The price is affordable and, if you ask me, it's definitely worth acquiring.
