3 amazing games: Monster, Newton, and Masterpiece:
Monster: Meet Mo! Mo loves magic, dancing and creating together. He needs your help and creativity for his next idea! Offering an almost magical creative experience, Monster lets you draw a magic wand for Mo, your furry orange friend. He’ll then use it to bring your other creations into his world. Together, you and Mo will make a magic act, go on an adventure or take a tour of Mo’s house that you can show to family and friends!
Masterpiece: Osmo Masterpiece is a drawing tool that helps your inner artist emerge. Just pick something to draw: a picture of a friend, a favorite cartoon, or even a photo you snap yourself, and Masterpiece transforms it into easy-to-follow lines. Then it guides you in creating beautiful drawings! The possibilities are infinite. Kids love to draw but now, with the rise of smartphones and iPads, they spend less time than ever using a pencil. Masterpiece combines cool technology with drawing, so kids have fun while improving their skill and dexterity.
Newton: Offering endless possibilities, Osmo Newton is a physics game that works with any object or drawing. Simply place the chosen item in front of the screen and manipulate it to guide the falling balls into the target zones. Start with a pen and paper, but also try objects like Osmo Tangram pieces or toys. There is no limit to how you can solve Newton levels, so use your imagination to expand the way you play!
The more you succeed, the harder it gets! You can use simple strategies in the beginning, but as you progress through the 60 levels, Newton will challenge you with bouncing balls, accelerating platforms and fans that force you to think in new ways!
