About

This popular 2D puzzle-platformer creates the atmosphere of isolation, where the player alone can guide the nameless protagonist to his destination. Hostile environments and one-hit deaths may seem difficult, but the game implements a fair amount of checkpoints. The monochrome color palette showcases cartoony proportions of every living thing while making lack of details threatening. Limbo shows you exactly what you encounter, but never how it looks.

Limbo uses the atmosphere and sound design of the horror genre while avoiding tropes of the modern horror games. The overarching theme and unique style compensated for the rather short game with an abrupt ending, making Limbo one of the most impactful games for the genre.

The simple controls and easy-to-pick-up mechanics help to make a clear distinction, which part of the stage players can interact with, and which part can lead to the quick death. Even though the game is in black and white, this separation is intuitive and natural, so the player would know exactly where to go or what to do.

Limbo is an adventure, platformer. Limbo is in black and white. I like playing Limbo when someone is watching, or play in the evening to calm myself. The game might also get you scared or frustrated a bit. Stay cautious!

Tonally, this is exactly what I love from dark and grim games. For the first playthrough the pacing is damn near perfect, too. The problem comes with subsequent playthroughs, which are not nearly as compelling. Moments of tension work great the first time, but mostly feel like a slow down if you play it over again.

Absolutely amazing! Literally loved the game and story so much!

Don’t deserve its money on the full price. However, if you want some good spooky puzzler and a few bucks to spend, go try it. Limbo is full of interesting puzzles and it looks great. Nothing really innovative here but not everybody thinks new is always better. So I guess, all puzzle and horror lovers will enjoy Limbo.
This game looks awesome but that’s it. Instead of a cool indie puzzler I’ve got something close to an old school platformer that is impossible to play. I died too much to enjoy it. But I don’t think the devs wanted the game was so hard. Maybe, something just went wrong, I don’t know. Anyway, as for me, Limbo doesn’t deserve all this fascination it gets. The game is too intellectual, so better skip it.
I know people love this game and that's great. But for me, I found it a bit slow and a bit boring. I just don't really get the hype surrounding this game... I can't find anything particularly clever, challenging or interesting in regards to its story or game mechanics.

Not exceptional because i think the first part of the game (forest sequences) is much-much better than the second one. The multi-screen battle with spider is awesome and very memorable. Can't remember anything like that in the final stages.

Tried 3 times, but never was close to the end. Boring.
