As promised, multiplayer Osmos has come to Android!
This is a free update, and includes 6 distinct arenas in which players can play against each other — both locally and online — in a mote-eat-mote absorption-fest of skill and strategy. This update also includes many audio/visual improvements.
Local play is supported over Wi-fi, and online multiplayer is supported via Google Play’s new Game Services! (Osmos launched simultaneously with Google’s announcement a couple days ago, so no one can accuse us of twiddling our thumbs! ;-)) Players can share their achievements with their Google+ circles via this service as well.
- Play against your friends and enemies, locally or over the Internet.
- 6 distinct Arenas: Ambient, Impasse, Solar, Warped Chaos, Epicycles, and introducing… Antimatter Impasse.
- 18 new multiplayer achievements. (Along with a new single-player achievement.)
- Optional handicap system to keep competition friendly. Be kind to young motes.
So what are you waiting for? Go show your friends who’s boss of the Blobiverse! We sincerely hope you enjoy it!
Many thanks to the fine folks at Apportable who did most of the “heavy lifting” in bringing multiplayer to Android. We couldn’t have done it without you! <3
