Osmos is great fun in short sessions. The basic idea is simple, but the levels stay interesting. Amazing soundtrack and funky visuals make Osmos a good way to chill out. [Mar 2010]80Pelit (Finland)
Great game! Very relaxing! Has an amazing soundtrack. It does get pretty hard as you go on though so that’s why I give it a 9/10.90NCODER

Osmos fits snugly into the Zen genre: the music is ambient, the visuals minimalist, and the risk/reward mechanic demands a measured approach. [Nov 2009, p.131]70games(TM)
Independent arcade surprises with a polished game, physics and strong concept. But frustrating moments and overall shortness kills the fun make it forgettable. [Issue#189]70LEVEL (Czech Republic)
Cool game with great potential… But could be done better. Very frustrating for a casual game. Can be much luck based too. But this game have a good relaxating soundtrack and cool visual.30MusicCream
Characterized by some great concepts and a really good implementation, Osmos has nice graphics and compelling musics too. Perfect to kill half a day.70AWG
