Apple Design Award Winner.
What the press said:
“MASTERPIECE! Inside is a 2D puzzle platformer that builds upon what made Limbo great, and in fact builds something greater.”
10/10 – IGN
“Inside expands on the concepts and scope of its predecessor in wildly creative ways, and it's so immaculately designed and constructed from top to bottom that it almost feels suitable for display in an art museum. This is one hell of a follow-up.”
5/5 – Giant Bomb
“Gorgeous art and animations, devious puzzle design and a pitch-black sense of humor. A perfectly paced series of escalating "holy shit" moments.”

Deciphering this game is no easy task—it feels like a metaphor. Is it a commentary on the fragile nature of trust and human connection? A scathing critique of our blind adherence to authority? Or is it just really weird? Regardless, INSIDE is an incredible journey with increasingly bizarre encounters that mix action with clever puzzle designs. The game isn’t meant to be entirely understood. It’s meant to be experienced.
Don’t buy this here
I started playing this game a while back, and it’s been a very interesting experience. This is about as indie as a game can get, which means dark themes, creepy stories, mostly grey backgrounds with red accents and ominous music. Overall, I would say that this is a fun, challenging puzzle game with great atmosphere, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes indie games.
But there’s a catch. The controls are absolutely infuriating at times, completely ruining the experience. I went on a half-year long hiatus from this game, because the controls were so terrible, and they were preventing me from solving a seemingly simple puzzle. When your character is just walking around, they’re fine, but when he needs to run, that’s when the flaws really start to show. It is sometimes physically impossible to make him run fast enough without taking your finger off the screen and stopping entirely, which usually results in him getting caught, and don’t even get me started on the water levels.
This is a fantastic game, but don’t buy it on the App Store. Get it on Steam, or wherever else they sell it where you don’t need to use a touch screen to move. Yes, it is a lot more expensive on those platforms, but the reason all of these computer/console games are so cheap on mobile is because it makes for an overall worse experience with these ultimately inferior control systems. So yes, you should get this game. Just don’t do it here.
I’m in my forties and have been gaming since gaming began. I’m not a fan of platformers for the most part but this game is like nothing I’ve ever played before.
Visually, it’s a spectacle to behold. Amazing environments and animations. The attention to detail is among the highest I’ve ever seen. The deaths are truly disturbing and gut wrenching (like the sound of your body hitting the ground after a long fall). You’ll want to avoid death just because of the brutality of it. Yet, every way your character dies, you’ll want to experience at least once since it’s so well done. The story is dark and crazy (almost like a Black Mirror episode) and the audio is perfect. Also, the controls, contrary to what some reviews say, are spot on and buttery smooth. This game is never leaving my phone since it’s with experiencing over and over. Kudos to the devs for such an amazing work of art.
P.s. I’ve noticed nearly all poor reviews are from idiots who have phones that aren’t compatible. Children, you can’t rate a game one star because your hardware can’t handle it! Use your brains! Other morons criticize the pay model, which is perfect! You download it for free and get to play the first chapter. If you like it, you can purchase the full premium game (which is a steal, by the way). If you don’t, you didn’t have to spend a penny to figure it out. I wish all games were like this.
