This game seriously pisses me off. Either it’s my phone or the game developers. Either way, this game has insanely hard levels that are close to impossible. Why do you have to make it so annoyingly hard?! It’s good but you’re close to making me want to put my fist through the screen.
Absolutely gorgeous design. The puzzles are clever and creepy and good dark fun, but the controls are nowhere near sensitive enough to get through them. The challenges require precise timing and angles, and the controls just can’t keep up.
But beating a level is sooooo furfilling
No fun, hard to use
The games art style and puzzles are good but the platforming and execution of puzzles is tough, but that would be fine if the checkpoints would be a little more often to appreciate the positive sides of the game and not being so caught up in rage and repeating a stage over and over again.
This is a fun and challenging game. My only complaint is that it is too short. I would love to see more of this game. Be sure to check out their other game, Inside.
I got this game and immediately loved it. At first it looked like a kids game. Not that scary and fun. The first bear trap I got caught in I realized it wasn’t a kids game. Blood went everywhere. This game is violent but it makes dieing seem more terrible. But it is really fun. The puzzles aren’t too hard and they are fun. The spider scares me. He knockes you over and impales you. Watch out for him.
I admit, this game is pretty darn creepy, but I LOVE it. The concept design for this game is absolutely eerie and beautiful. This game (in my opinion) is in the top charts of best ges ever on the phone. The only small problem I have with this game is the way you move. I wish there was a small movement controller at the bottom so that you could control a bit better, but other than that this game is excellent
Definitely would be 5 stars if it wasn’t for the controls. Fantastic puzzles and animation and sound fx. More than half of the time I “died” it was because the controls would jump when I wanted to move, or move when I wanted to jump. Controls are insanely frustrating, but everything else is top notch.
LIMBO is a amazing twisted puzzle game. You take the role of a boy in the woods, not knowing why you are there. I currently have played the entirety of the game 2 times, since I enjoyed it so much. The game is even beer with it’s element of creepiness. For example, in one part of the game you are wrapped up by a spider, and you have to escape. And then it chases you! It has you wondering every second what will happen next and having wanting to play more. I definitely recommend this, especially to people who love horror or puzzle games.
