Limbo is the kind of game, that you don't really need to introduce. It looks nice, it is Easy to control, and is fun to play. Also, it is very short, so if someone buys it, he will finish it. Some of the platforming sections are very trial and error, and it's really hard, or in fact impossible to do right the first time, but falling into the traps is part of the fun. Some of the iconic parts of the game you will never forget. Your very early duel with the spider is like that, and getting through it feels like a true accomplishment. So yeah, if you didn't already, buy this.
LIMBO is a very nice puzzle platformer and with it's black and white theme and beautiful musics provides a unique atmosphere which keeps you intrigues till the very end of the game. most of it's puzzles are not so much sophisticated and you can easily beat them with only few retries or even at you first playthrough if you are a veteran platformer player, the game is kind of too short and there's also a hidden level in the game which i discovered it by accident and believe me it was really hard and challenging unlike the other ones! I definitely recommend to buy this hidden gem if you have not tried it yet!
LIMBO is the 2D experience par excellence that immerses you in a panorama where everything lacks color but its shades Gray, Black and white make the experience feel visually of great quality Limbo does not have elements of HUD so everything happens without interruptions and in a fluid way The art direction of LIMBO makes every minute of the experience worth, Counting on several scenes of soundtrack that manages to balance the environment LIMBO It has a linear scenario that provides you with a simple mobility to learn and that many times you long to run a little faster because of the environment Although the enemies of LIMBO lack textures and colors such as the clearest example of the Spider, it is not a serious problem since its great design of fluid mobility, Sound effects and size do that it certainly gets you more of a fright and you frighten you by escaping from it! Without a doubt LIMBO will give you several hours of fun and many moments too entertaining!
Limbo is a dark yet full of like bizarre game filled with puzzles and deadly enemies. You are just a child who just woke up from your dreams to find yourself in a dark, strange forest. You must push forward through the land across enemies and find your lost sister and break yourself free from this nightmare called Limbo. Recommended.
Do not be fooled, this is not a game for everyone (unless you are looking for a challenge), given the difficulty and the heavy atmosphere. If you expect colorful graphics like Ori and the Blind Forest or Rayman Origins you may feel disappointed. The time of the game itself, its completion will take you no more than 3h. So if you are looking for challenging to solve, this is a game for you.
