One of my vast collection of distractions, my personal favourite level is to collapse the system by feeding the attractor in F2-3. ( PC version not sure on other platforms )
It's also a great example of indie game development.

YAY!

But can you complete the level where you have to swallow three spheres that are circling three "suns"? That one is BUSTING MY BALLS.

Great post and I agree, we are use to rich 3D environments, but we are nothing by a passive viewer. The rise of the iPhone platform has give way to experiences in which users can interact with content in a new way- touching. The allure of touch is that it is almost visceral- the user is almost feeling their way around the App.

I think part of the immersive quality of Osmos is also down to the superb accompanying soundtrack, that when listened to with headphones, really helps drag the user into the experience.
