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.
The visual art direction is gorgeous, scary and eerie all at the same time for this game. You play a little boy that travels to Limbo and encounters ghoulish creatures like large spiders and some crazy natives and must solve puzzles in order to advance. There is hardly any music in this game but when there is, you will feel the suspense and tension. You will die a lot in this game, but that is also part of the fun seeing how many different ways your character can die like getting crushed by spikes, impaled by a spider leg or drowned. Imagine if Tim Burton directed a video game, this would be it, there's no other game out there similar to this other than Inside. There's only a jump and action button to move objects around, so gameplay is not a big issue here. I would definitely recommend this game to anybody that wants to try something different.
well i missed this game when it release back in 2011 but i got it as a gift from my dear friend and it was in my library for a while without even playing it, but some day i just was bored and saw the game size is only about 77 MB to download so i decided to install it and give it a try, and the magic of this game got me! i played all of it in a sit and really enjoyed it, a week later i get back to the game and tried to hunt 100% achievement of this game and there was i realized there was a secret level in the game! and it was really hard to, anyway this game is really fun and has some challenging puzzles but i recommend to play it with a controller if you want to go for 100% achievement :) i'm playing their 2nd game called INSIDE and love it so far, i hope it won't be as short as limbo.
