Game is amazing <3
Sound effects are amazing
The Gameplay is 10/10

It started to be a little spooky and cautious at the beginning and then it became so challenging. At some points, I really felt stupid when it took me 10+ minutes to figure out how to solve this puzzle to proceed. I felt like my IQ level is 10.

I really recommend picking up this game on a discount. As it is too short and it can be finished within 1-2 hours.
I put more time to the game because I was grinding all the achievements and the toughest one was to complete the game in one sitting with 5 or less deaths. *Challenge Accepted* *Challenge Done*

LIMBO * 8/10

The Combination of Minimalism and Difficult platform gave birth to LIMBO.

That line would be enough to describe this platform. Minimalism is some kind of philosophy in every aspect of this game, even before you buy it, the synopsis briefly reports you're down in Limbo because you're worried for your sister. That's all. Fine. As soon as you load the game you have nothing to set, no graphics, no keys, you just start the game waking up in limbo.
There's no tutorial nor any explanation so you have to guess that the arrow keys move your character and CTRL is used to grab objects to pull or interact with buttons. The game won't explain anything at all but it's quite self explanatory as the purpose of the game is just to go on avoiding obstacles, solving riddles, and getting past traps and "enemy entities" you might encounter from time to time. And you will die. A lot. Because there are lots of traps and ricks, but there's no need for a tutorial as all riddles and obstacles are presented with a very balanced growing difficulty starting with simple puzzles and arriving to very tough and complicated riddles mixed with arcade sections giving a great challenge. Also, there's no save system, but an automatic and very frequent checkpoint system.

Visual art is minimalistic as well. Very minimalistic indeed as everything is in black and white, and the ambient is made of grey scales but everything is drawn with a great artistic taste as there will be interesting backgrounds and great light slices giving occasional inspired landscapes.

According to the game's minimalistic philosophy, music is almost non existent replaced by ambience effects or single notes played softly mixed with loud noises coming from dangers or props to emphasize the sensation of danger.

  • GAMEPLAY. This is the soul and the point of the game: going ahead, get past the dangers, solve riddles and survive. Riddles and traps will provide a really great and entertaining incrasing challenge.
  • MINIMALISM. The game is designed to be minimalistic under every aspect and this turned out being a winning point for the game because you have to solve hard and difficult riddles with simple controls not to mention the inspired art conceived in plain black and white.
  • MINIMALISM. Minimalism itself can be a turndown because I can understand the gameplay, but at least the devs could have made me choose the key bindings. I know besides arrows the only key you need is CTRL but maybe I want to choose and, more importantly, know about that key. Also the lack of music after hours of gaming is really missed.

Laptop Lenovo Z50
Intel Core i5-4210U
GeForce 840M/Intel HD Graphics 4400
Windows 10 Home x64

The game is good, but I feel the best parts of the game are at the beginning, towards around the middle and starts to get overly puzzle heavy and more infuiating as it goes on. The beginning of the game builds up the environment and small pieces of a story having to do with the world, the child characters you see that try to kill you, dead hanging bodies, etc. Once you get to the city and factory levels all the story takes a back seat to straight puzzles. You're no longer exploring out of curiosity for the world, you're exploring simply to just get through the game and figure out the next puzzle. The cheap deaths start to get on your nerves and distract from the over all experience, turning the game into trial and error. I'm recommending it because it's a well made game that does it's aesthetic very well and the beginning is very well done. The game just becomes tedious after pretty much the point where you use that Fly to get to the higher ledge. It's just straight trial and error and standing there stumped for a bit, dying a lot, till you notice something you didn't before or execute some precise action.

I can't say this game is as good as everyone made it out to be. It comes about half way imo. If I was to give this game a star rating and not just a thumbs up or down, it would be 3/5. I probably would have gotten through the game sooner, but I was spending time messing with this area close to after the gravity mechanics are introduced that probably didn't have anything hidden to find.

Got this product for free on a sale :3 I was very lucky to get this for free! I now enjoy this game! It's filled with horror and it makes you feel uncomfortable at times.. But after you complete this game, you will let out a sigh of relief. The last few parts are filled with horror and uncomfortability.. Weak hearted people are not reccomended to play this game

Limbo is an atmospheric 2D platformer released in 2010. Its many qualities made this game one of the poster childs of the indie game boom around the time of its release.

While not revolutionary, Limbo is an extremely well put together game. The visuals are unique and captivating, drawing the player into the game with its unsettling art style. The sound design is minimalist but adaptive, and has been written about online if you're interested in learning more. There are few mechanics in the game, yet the puzzle design is top notch.

Basically, Limbo is a really solid short game that is well worth the time and money.

Nice Puzzle Platformer with some clever puzzles, but the challenge mostly lies 'underneath' the achievements ;-)
One of the best atmospheres you could wish for in a game! No soundtrack, but what do you expect in Limbo (the Underworld)? I didn't miss it this time.

9/10 because I'm used to fast-paced platformers.

Limbo has an abundance of richness, from the detailed environments & character animations, to the eerie depth of view created from the monotone colour palette with the blurring/film grain effects applied on top. Artistic styling is unique giving a strong dreamy/nightmare? feel that really sucked me in. Subtle use of sound, initially feels lacking but actually enhances the atmosphere & is also used as a mechanic in some of the fantastic physics based puzzles found throughout. These puzzles above everything else were what kept me hooked till the end.

The levels are extremely well designed, dark & foreboding, telling in part their own story without words. They are short but varied, often introducing new elements keeping things fresh & always offered a challenge. Levels seamlessly merge together. Some parts left me scratching my head for quite some time, not only requiring some complex problem solving but in true platformer fashion, also precise timing. I found this difficult at times as the character jump has a bit of a delay & movement in general is relatively slow but I did adjust to it to a degree. The spider sections in particular freaked me out (yeah I don’t like spiders!), the animations were so lifelike with it always looming close by. Fantastically done!
Everything in Limbo’s design seems to click; there is simplicity in the mechanics, lean, ensuring only things that are needed are introduced. From the two button controller config (Jump & Activate) to only having items to interact with that have a purpose, to level designs that don’t have redundant sections. Even saving progress is streamlined, with frequent automatic save points that gave me zero frustration. You can also easily reload a section to replay or hunt for the numerous hidden Easter Eggs as well. All in all, there is nothing I can really fault. Limbo is a thoroughly enjoyable, masterfully tailored ride!

Limbo’s is on the shorter side. For me, it took around 5hrs on my first play, but it is possible to complete speed runs in around an hour if you know your way around so your mileage may vary. I personally found this to be a good length as it is a quality experience that doesn’t get stale or repetitive as you progress. That being said, I wouldn’t mind exploring a new dream in a Limbo 2 one day! :)

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

ชอบ ทฤษฏีนี้ แต่เนื้อเรื่อง เกมส์นี้เป็นอะไรที่เศร้าๆแหะ เอาเป็นว่าไม่ควรดองอย่างมาก

The brother got scared by a spider and fell off a treehouse while getting down, dying.
The boy's journey through limbo was to prove his value in heaven, as other condemned souls tries to pull him back to hell's path by not finishing his journey (the creepy kids).
After scaping from limbo, he reunites with his sister who is burying his body under the treehouse, she fells his presence, deciding to stay with him until she eventually dies (the treehouse shown after years), being forever together.

This game isn't for you if you're a whiny little b*tch who can't handle slow controls
This game isn't for you if you're afraid of spiders and can't fight it.
This game isn't for you if you get scared even by the most little things
This game isn't for you if you can't spend time twisting your brain sometimes
