Steve Jobs - Osmos for iPad
Steve Jobs engrossed in Osmos (one of the later and harder levels)

Osmos for iPhone features full Retina display and iOS 4.0 support (also works great on iOS3), along with all the familiar features from the iPad version: addictive, physics-based gameplay, fluid multitouch controls, lush, flowing visuals, and a chill, ambient electronic soundtrack. It will be priced at (the low, iPhone-market style) $2.99.

The #1 question we get asked is “how will Osmos look and play on the iPhone’s small screen, especially with my fat fingers?” The answer: very nicely! Check out this video to see it in action.

We’ve put a lot of work into this version (in fact the iPad “inherited” a lot of that work), and we hope you’ll enjoy it! For more information on features, the trailer, and awesome reviews of the iPad version, check out the Osmos for iPad page.

The winners will be drawn by Eddy Boxerman from Hemisphere Games (the creators of Osmos), on 12 Aug 2010 (next Thursday) using the randomness of atmospheric noise.

Note that we don’t keep or share anyone’s email addresses, so there’s no reason not to enter! If you already own a copy or don’t own an iPhone/iPod we can gift it to a friend for you.

The frame rate looks especially smooth even with hundreds of motes on the screen.

Mark your calendar. I can confirm that Hemisphere Games are hard at work on bringing Osmos to the iPhone, and should be with us in around eight weeks or so.

It almost seems like the perfect game for the iPhone/ iPad.
