Well, it’s been a little over a week since Osmos for iPad hit the App Store, and we couldn’t have asked for a better reception — thanks everyone! As a small thank you (and in acknowledgment that some of the levels in Osmos aren’t easy!), we’ve put together this little video tutorial to help. Specifically, this covers the last five levels of the Odyssey – Precision 4 through 8 – but it has tips that apply to a variety of levels. In particular, I give some general tips on how to control your orbit in the second level, “Sabotage.”
What? A “walk through?” Yes. We see Osmos as an arcade game — not a puzzle game, where giving away “the answer” can rob players of the satisfaction of discovering the solution for themselves. Here, it’s more about your understanding and skills; and as you improve, we believe your enjoyment of the game will also increase. We really want people to be able to finish the Odyssey (which we see as an introduction to the various level types) and spend their time enjoying and building skills at their own speed in Arcade mode.
So, without further ado, here it is.
