It’s too hard to control the character. You want to grab something but it takes 10 mins to get the character to grab it. It needs buttons. Badly.
I am a game developer myself and while I will acknowledge that some of the art and graphics of Limbo inspired some that in my first game “Rubberband Stan,” I never actually played Limbo. I read reviews about it saying that the controls were frustrating at times but I did not experience that. In fact, I felt the controls for the iOS mobile version were nearly flawless for what the game is. You could even use just one finger (or thumb) if you wanted to—though it’s easier to use two. I do expect that this game has a very narrow target market. Basically, if you enjoyed games like “Another World” (also called “Out of This World”) or perhaps the very first “Prince of Persia” on PC, then this game is for you!! There were certainly times that I felt “stuck” and I eventually “cheated” by watching bits of walkthrough videos, but it was at no fault of the developers of the game—I was really just too lazy and/or impatient to figure things out. Overall, Limbo was a great experience and exceeded my expectations, which were high to begin with!!!!
This game is amazing. I was looking for games like play dead’s inside (cuz I had just finished it) and I came across limbo, the scenery is beautifully simple and the game itself is so fun. I totally recommend!!😂😁
This was the first indie I bought on a console (Xbox Live Arcade) this game blew me away. It’s left such an impression on me and it is still one of my favorite indie games. I own this port since day one. The only problem is the game is short which wouldn’t be too much of a problem. Expect I feel it’s worth noting that this was 20$ original on XBLA. But nowadays this isn’t an issue with this port being 5$ on day one. Also this version was updated from the original version. Moreover one modern iPhones, the loading is much faster.
While it is a nice game, I don’t like that the little kid gets his head chopped off; and also the control is not sensitive enough for some fine movements and details, so it gets frustrating. The graphic is nice though
