So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Osmos is the award winning 47-level quest of a cell trying to outlast its comrades, featuring a soothing soundtrack. It's also been ported to almost everything that is click- or touch-based.

Unused Graphics

OsmosiOS lock.png
Inside the Textures folder of the game is lock.tga; a grey lock, unsurprisingly. The game uses this exact sprite albeit embedded in a round space background for displaying the locked stages.

Development Text

Keyboard Bindings

On the root of the iOS app is bindings.cfg, which has hotkeys for playing the game on a computer. It's included in the PC versions and its contents are slightly different, but it's still not used either way.

// in-game bindings

bind +w set=game zoomRamp 1
bind -w set=game zoomRamp 0
bind +s set=game zoomRamp -1
bind -s set=game zoomRamp 0
bind +a set=game timeRamp -1

More interestingly, there is also devbindings.cfg, which has hotkeys binded to some debug functions and mentions a cheat mode.

README.txt, also on the root of the app, are the release notes/changelog for version 2.7.5 of the OpenFeint scoring system.

Revisional Differences

The game was given a few cosmetic changes when ported to touchscreen devices.

Startup Screens

The game boots up with an ESRB logo with a rating of E for Everyone on the PC version; this is missing in the iOS port.

Additionally, Hemisphere Games' logo is rendered in-game in the PC version, whereas the iOS one displays it as a static, standalone picture after selecting the app.
