In KOSMO SPIN, a UFO has appeared to steal all the "breakfast thingys" that populate the planet. Nod, a brave alien, is trying to rescue the breakfast thingys and protect the planet by heading the balls the UFO tosses down. The graphics are superb, with a sort of hand-crafted look to them, and everything is quite adorable, from Nod to the breakfast thingys to the alien in the UFO. Aside from the basic game, which is just getting the highest score possible without getting sucked up by the UFO's beam, there are also a number of quests such as "head 5 balls in 30 seconds" or "survive for 5 seconds," which is made more difficult by poisoned balls or adjusted speed or sizes.

Kosmo Spin is a delight to play because of the innovative control scheme and the whimsical graphics. The quests don't seem to be arranged in any particular order of difficulty, though -- some are quite simple to complete and others (like "score 1,000 points") are much more difficult.
