Editors’ Choice

Limbo is a gripping blend of stark, haunting landscapes, bizarre characters and unsettling sounds. With clever puzzle design, an intriguing narrative and an excellent touch-screen control system, it’s as rewarding to play as it is interesting to look at and listen to.

Perfect game

Everything about this game is perfect. The level of difficulty is just the right balance between frustration and rewarding, there’s no repetitive tasks every little segment is its own unique challenge that is different enough from the last that you need to stop and think about how to solve it and what exactly it is that needs solving. You’re never forced to restart the task too far back and so you don’t find yourself repeating huge chunks of game play to get get back to the same point. The graphics are simple yet beautiful and totally Immersive. The controls are intuitive and easy to work out. My only minor complaint was that the ending was not as satisfying as I’d hoped. It’s slightly confusing and doesn’t conclude or explain much at all... but then that didn’t make it any less fun to play.

Gruesome yet beautiful. Simple yet clever

With just a few simple touch controls this game offers simple yet challenging puzzles for the small boy in the game who is navigating a dangerous dark and mysterious world. They start simple, develop into multi-step problems and at times split second timing. If you can handle the gruesome deaths (including graphic audio) the small boy suffers each time he fails, then you’ll have fun.
Be patient working out the controls (it helps to watch the demo video in the App Store) and you may need to look further than you expect for solutions at times.
Wonderfully creative thinking by the designers/developers.
