“Playing Osmos is like gazing into a petri dish full of living microorganisms through the lens of a high-powered microscope. You control one single mote amongst many in a low-key cage-match to see who can grow the biggest. As a single-celled organism, your main objective in most levels is to absorb enough matter to dwarf — and ultimately consume — the bulk of the other motes in your microcosm. Any smaller motes you come in contact with are absorbed and make you increase in size. But accidentally bump up against motes that are larger than you, and they’ll suck you up like the last drop of a frosty milkshake.”
