This game kind of makes me feel like I'm playing an old NES game but with better graphics and less fun 8-bit music. Its very simple mechanics make it quite an interesting game. You start off with no idea of what's happening, no back story, no one popping up telling you "USE TEH ARROW KEYZ TO MOVE." It just throws you in the game, basically telling you, "you figure it out. You're smart, right?" Each time you fail a puzzle at first, you learn from your mistake how to go at it in a different approach. It's a fun little game that's a good game for reminiscing about simpler game times.

Surreal, eerie, and kind of depressing. Yet, it is comforting in a strange way. One of the best atmospoheres I have ever seen in a game. Puzzling is unique. The strangeness of it makes you want to know what you are even doing there. The art and atmosphere make this a brilliant game.

Limbo is one of the best Indie-Titles out there. The puzzles of this game are not too hard but still add a lot of fun into the game. The atmosphere created by this game is simply amazing, there isn't any real story, or any story behind the whole world Limbo is playing in, but the story slowly builds itself with all the events happening. I really like the graphics of this game. It has its own little magic touch. Its worth the money and i really liked that game!
