Don’t you tell me that you have never heard of Limbo. This is an amazing platform game created by Playdead and even though it has initially gained its popularity on the PC world, things are about to change. Limbo was originally released as an Xbox Live Arcade exclusive, before eventually moving to the PlayStation and PC as well, but it has been just recently ported to Android, so that’s your chance to give it a try too.
You should know from the start that this game is all basic puzzle solving; the only controls are nothing more than movement, jump, and some sort of an action/interact button, with no form of combat. If this is not what you have in mind, stop and find other options. However, if this is your option, I can assure you of the fact that you don’t even know what you are missing!
In this game, you have to guide a boy as he searches for his sister. The road is not a safe one, but a dark forest filled with dangers and deadly traps. In fact, you become the little boy and you feel the terror of waking up in a strange world made up only of black, white, and shades of gray.
The background provides an illusion of depth, but its branches and bridges are out of focus, as if you are in a sleep dream. Despite of all, all the dangers feel more than real. Limbo is a hostile place, full of traps that might kill you and giant spiders that would love a new meal. The game has no mercy for your situation, but don’t give up! As for the soundtrack, let me tell you that I found it as being simlply ideal for the gameplay. It gives you a cold chill on your back, a feeling that perfectly matches the black and white presentation of the game.
Please know that this game is very short in duration, and you will finish it very quickly. In fact, I finished it no more than three hours and my only disappointment was that I wanted it to last longer! And I bet that I am not the only one thinking so.
