We're bending the rules a little for this week's Aussie Developed App of the Week feature, because these guys are actually based in Tokyo, Japan. However, Score Studios
are a small band of expatriate developers from various corners of the globe, and their co-founder and CTO, Paul Caristino -- whom some of you might know better as b2, or beatwho -- is most definitely Aussie, and for a time worked with us here at Mammoth Media, developing parts of this very website.
The Score team formed after having worked together at various Japanese studios on games that include Star Ocean, End of Eternity and Harvest Moon and have released a string of successful mobile titles including the P&P RPG assistant app DMTools
and the horribly addictive puzzle game Piczle Lines
Their latest title, and today's featured App of the Week is another new puzzler named Osmosis
This brain-bending puzzle game is as cute as it is confounding! Slide cells around a grid to merge them together...it sounds easy enough, doesn't it? Combine three cells of the same type to form a single bigger cell, until there is only one cell left on the board. Walls, switcher cells and viruses help and hinder. It won't be easy!
Osmosis a simple but polished little pick-up-and-play puzzle game with a good mix of simple and hair-tearing challenges and we're not just saying that because they're our mates either -- we promise. It's a good fit on both iPad and iPhone, supports retina display and can be had for only 99c over on the App Store
