Cosmic Osmo's Hex Isle For Mac
11:04 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

TransGaming and Cyan Worlds today announced the release of Cosmic Osmo’s Hex Isle, a puzzle/adventure game for the Macintosh. Cosmic Osmo’s Hex Isle marks the second collaboration between TransGaming and Cyan Worlds, whom earlier in the year released Myst Online: Uru Live for the Mac using TransGaming's Cider portability technology.

Here's a bit more info on the game:

Cosmic Osmo was first released in 1989. It received rave reviews from computer and mainstream press alike. Newsweek touted it as an engrossing cartoon voyage and named it the best computer game of 1989. Osmo faded away over fifteen years ago, but fans have long cherished the characters and adventure in these whimsical worlds, anxiously awaiting his return.

Cosmic Osmo is back. However, Osmo has been banished to the Hex Isles and needs your help to make his escape and find his space ship again. The goal of Hex Isle is simple: guide Osmo over hexagonal shaped tiles (hexes) to touch six targets, thus completing the level and helping him escape.

Cosmic Osmo's Hex Isle requires an Intel-based computer along with Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later, a 128 MB Video Card, CD-ROM, and 800 x 600 display. The game is available for purchase through Fanista.com for $19.98 and ships out on CD.
