Globosome FREE deals with balance, responsibility, and dexterity. With an intuitively useable gyro controller, the players can steer a planteating sphere, which has become separated from its swarm and which is now attempting to return to it or to establish its own swarm. If the sphere eats enough, it receives sufficient life energy to reproduce itself through the separation. However, if the sphere lapses into gluttony, the resources become scarce, and the life of the growing swarm is endangered.
