Limbo is a puzzle game that is fille with puzzles everyone has seen and yet still is a annoying nuisance. The controls feel like playing a flash game with a strange floaty implimentation. This wouldn't be a problem if the puzzles didn't require a level of precision to complete. Not to mention that the game is just slow. This could be a design choice, but why is it that i'm stuck waiting for my character to move. I enjoyed the artstyle and theme but the black on white design made for some annoying times where I spent 20 mins just seing what could vbe interacted with. I think this game is overhyped, overpriced, and frankly, boring.

Indie games, like everything else in gaming, is hit or miss. Some indie games attempt to bring something new to the table while others take a familiar formula and mix it up a bit. Limbo is the latter taking elements from games that veteran gamers will probably recognize, but put in a package that has not been seen before.

In Limbo, you control a boy that’s looking for his sister in Limbo. Yes that’s all you get for storyline because there will be plenty of interpretations of the plot once the gaming public gets their hands on it. There are so many nuances and details throughout the game that you feel that there’s a deeper story hidden, and the only way to learn about that story is to replay certain areas again and again to see how it all fits. A common theme you’ll find in this review that the simplistic look and gameplay of Limbo is just the surface of this complex game.

Reminiscent of an indie film, Limbo is only done in black and white. No colors or 3D, but instead a very animated 2D style. Your character has a very artistic look to him with only white eyes on a black silhouette, and the world has many instances where the objects and creatures on screen are simply mesmerizing. Again, what comes to mind when playing through this game are those movies that choose black and white rather than color to give their film a distinct yet considerably powerful look to it as Limbo has done. Keeping the game devoid of color, your mind wants to almost see the color that should be there making you pay even more attention to those object that should have some sort of color to it. Then there are scenes that are so detailed that you may overlook the lack of color because you see so much around you that color becomes not important. It’s simply an impressive sight to see a game that has no color yet provides such artistic imagery.

As the graphics of Limbo remind me of various black and white movies, the game itself brings back memories of multiple games that I’ve played throughout my time as a gamer. Essentially the game combines platforming that most gamers are familiar with, and puts you in puzzle situations that require a lot of thought. As you make your way through the level, you’ll eventually come to an obstacle of some sort. Whether it be a ledge too high to reach, a body of water to traverse, or a creature in your way, it will be your task to figure out how to get by as your character does not have any abilities aside from jumping, running, and interacting with objects.

Not only does your character not have any abilities, but the boy is frail. In the words of Until We Win host Lord Kat, you’re going to die... a lot. You can’t swim, survive long drops, defend yourself against creatures, or even take a hit to the head from a box falling from a certain height. Limbo might as well have been called "Trial andError" as you will be doing that for hours on end. Thankfully the developers Play Dead Studios (kind of fitting that they would have "dead' in their name) made dying less of a hassle. The game is split into areas where the puzzle is located. This means you’ll always find yourself right when the puzzle starts, and you can’t get any further until you pass the puzzle. The deaths in the game are particularly brutal making for this to be the bloodiest black and white game. Dying is especially painful to watch in certain situations when you realize that this is a child that has just been offed in such a callous way. It fits with the nature of the game as the seemingly simple and innocence of a child searching for his sister takes such a harsh turn making for a more dramatic experience sans the audible narrative.

Taking about 4.9 hours on average to complete, the only true reason to keep playing Limbo is for achievements. I must add the achievements are far from being conventional as well as being far from easy making for a true challenge for achievement ♥♥♥♥♥s.

Limbo is a game for a certain type of gamer. A gamer that enjoys a good challenge in a game rather than having it be overtly difficult, someone that appreciates a game that feels familiar to other games of the past, while not being a complete knock-off, and wants a taste of something new with a flavor that is still recognizable. For that reason, I can’t recommend that everyone needs to play this game, but I do feel that people should play this game. If anything, this game is one of those refreshing breaths of air that a gamer needs to take here and there to remind you that there are games that offer something different.

My Rating: 9.1/10

This game is an example of how indie games should be MADE!
LIMBO is an indie , puzzle game , which contains very smart puzzles.
Average 6h game for a not so hardcore gamer at puzzles games, but this game will give you the chills!
It has a very beautiful atmosphere and at the end of the game the only feeling you will probably get is LOVE FOR THIS GAME.
PLEASE BUY THIS GAME , IT WILL BE A WASTE NOT TO HAVE IT

I don't get it, you can't ask players to play a (puzzle) platformer if you don't give them a reason to move further and further to their right.
Started the game, no "tutorial" (stared at the screen for a whole minute until I actually tried to press random keys), there was no bgm, died multiple times for things I couldn't predict since I've been given no knowledge of the world whatsoever. Speaking of that, my idea when it comes to death in games is that it should be a punishment for not having put to use the knowledge and/or instrument you were given before, you can't "teach" knowledge by killing players.
Still, the main concern is still about the reason to move forward, for example if you need to save a princess you run and try your best to get to her but in this case you just bore yourself on a greish world solving puzzles (at least at the beginning of the game, where a reason to move forward is the most important thing).

Ah, finally, setting jump and up on a single button was a terrible design idea.

If any of you can help me appreciate this game, please do in the comments below, I'd really like to (I'm actually quite fond of platformers).

Even after all these years, LIMBO is still one of the greatest indie-game. It's hard to classify it: it's a platformer, but it will rarely require good timing; it's a puzzle game, but you won't spend hours trying to figure out solutions; it's a horror game, but there's no blood, no jumpscare, not even fear, just a disturbing atmosphere.

I wouldn't recommend this game if someone asked me to suggest a platformer, a puzzle game or a horror game. But for someone asking for something new and/or looking for a game with a peculiar atmosphere, I wouldn't hesitate one second. PLAY THIS GAME!

One of the best platformer puzzle games out there. The music, atmosphere & story makes it unique, so whether it's free or not it's a must to have.


PS. If you're color blinded person &/or love spiders this is your game.

Gorgeous, unique silhouette art style with incredible subtle lighting effects; amazing sound design that actually helps you play the game; surprisingly rich atmosphere for such a minimalistic game; great gameplay (after a bit of getting used to your character's more realistic maneuverability compared to most video game heroes); puzzles so clever you'll think Valve went 2d. And to top it all off, the hidden eggs and bonus level are that rare kind of super-fair, intuitive challenge, rather than over-the-top nonsense. The biggest gripe would be that there are a handful of points in the game where you have to simply wait around for a bit too long, but it's nothing major.

If you still haven't played this, give it a go. It's a small game with a one-of-a-kind atmosphere and everything about it just fits right.

You are a boy searching for his missing sister. You wander through gloomy forests, explore forbidding caves and try to escape a industrial complex of whirring machines and smoke stacks – all painted in silhouette against the smoky greys of an old flickering film. It's amazing that such a simple approach can create such a nightmarish atmosphere.

'Simple' is an excellent word to sum up this indie platform game. From its monochrome presentation to its single sentence storyline, it creates a spare, deadly, lonely world, devoid of colour and distraction. You brave yawning landscapes with nothing but the rustling of your feet to keep you company. Large sections of the game are silent but for the occasional drip of water, or a cavernous echo, sometimes punctuated by fractured, urgent music, or footsteps racing into the distance. The only humans you come up against are hostile, chasing you away with spears and darts.

Everything in Limbo is out to harm you. From the moment the scenery come to life when that first giant spider-leg unfurls, a hundred times more menacing than it has any right to be, you're in world that doesn't want you there.

It's a meat grinder, coldly snapping beartraps around your fragile little frame, crumbling the boy into a pile of body parts. It stresses you into making mistakes: you know exactly what horrible thing is about to happen to your little ward when presented with a pressure plate and a crushing device.

Limbo's obstructions are grossly imaginative, requiring morbid solutions: one puzzle's resolution comes when you drag a corpse into a pool so you can use it as a bloated, floppy stepping stone to the other side. When not being chased by implacable spiders with a penchant for skewering bodies, you'll be feverishly searching for floating crates to ride as water rises above your ankles, or plucking the remaining leg off a maimed spider and rolling its body to block spikes and clamber to a ledge.

Limbo's initial morbid world of beartraps, corpses and ravenous arachnids eventually leads you into industrial levels, full of more conventional puzzles, such as gravity switches, elevators and even machinegun turrets. It's around this mark that the puzzles become far more frustrating, requiring precision timing to progress. You'll occasionally be reduced to a weeping mess of tears and tantrums, defeated by a straightforward but deadly puzzle that can only be overcome by getting everything just so.
I spent a lip-gnashing, keyboard smashing 20 minutes trying to run across a length of railway track before a descending minecart hit a switch to electrify the rails. Twenty damn minutes watching my boy judder as his tiny legs failed to make the last jump.

Your most horrific foes are the brain slugs, which drop from above and burrow into your skull. Once nestled in your cranium, they force you to stagger in one direction – normally straight into a pit of spikes.

Make no mistake: you're going to die. A lot. It's impossible to pass five minutes without succumbing to Limbo's sick snags. But finally realising the infuriatingly simple solutions and achieving that bloody jump will reward you with Portalsized feelings of smugness and relief.

It's a little disappointing to have waited a year for this game to get ported to PC only to find keyboard control is locked to the cursor keys, but in spite of that – and Limbo's short playtime (around three to five hours) – you simply cannot miss out on this darkly evocative experience. It has its frustrations, but it's a beautiful argument for games as art.

Limbo is a beautifully designed masterpiece of a platform game, that will chill, challenge and charm in equal measure. 8.5/10
