Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2):

OSMOS is a gorgeous, Zen-like puzzle game in which players control an orb floating through space, absorbing smaller orbs to become bigger while avoiding being absorbed by larger orbs. Although the premise sounds trite, the execution is excellent thanks to realistic physics, different orb behaviors (some repel and some attract, for example), and 72 increasingly tricky levels in various environments. The game's languid pace and surprising degree of difficulty may frustrate some, but Osmos is a unique and beautiful experience for those patient enough to appreciate it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
