The following information comes from Backlog and Bucket List Gaming ISSUE 2:


LIMBO SATISFIES:

Limbo is satisfying (no wonder it is on ten platforms and counting) in the way that it asks the player to find a solution to a problem and then after heartbreak, deaths by electrocution and drowning and impalement and other means, comes triumph in solving the problem.

It is a game that has spoken to many different gamers.

FUN FOR LIMBO:

For the gamers that want to pick up a game and play immediately, Limbo.

For those that are overwhelmed by all the buttons on the controller and wished a game only used a button or two, Limbo.

For players that want a story that is not told through an hour long cut scene, a game that can be beat in a handful of hours, a journey that tests your reflexes and puzzle solving abilities, well, that is going to be Limbo.

THE LIMBO BRILLIANCE:

It was the adventure, as well as the puzzles, along the way that kept me playing Limbo. For one, I really wanted to save my sister.The game’s simplicity is captivating. I needed to save my sister so I’m going to save her.

But then the puzzle aspect kicked in and my internal thought took over:

THE LIMBO THOUGHT PROCESS:

Oh, wait. There’s a crate.

What am I supposed to do with the crate? Let’s see. I can jump but do little else.

Can I push it? Cool. So, I guess I will push it into that lake. Crap! It is floating away. I need to jump on it quick.

Made it. I guess I will jump onto the land on the other side of the lake. Okay. What’s this? A sloped cliff.

Maybe I will climb it. Seems fine—oh no!

A boulder’s coming to get me. I died. The game reset and I am alive again. Good.

Now, how am I supposed to make it up that cliff without being squished?

LIMBO IS AN AWESOME ADVENTURE:

If you enjoy thinking like this for a good five hours or so, Limbo’s your game.

And it never stops asking the player to think or survey the environment, use tools that may seem like they are just part of the background, and solve tasks that seem simpler than they really are . . .

The following information comes from Backlog and Bucket List Gaming ISSUE 2:


SAY HELLO TO LIMBO:

I would like to introduce you to a game I bought twice—a game that is on several platforms, making avoiding this gem a hard thing to do—and a game with no on-screen display: Limbo. The next game to be added to your Bucket List.

WHAT IS LIMBO?:

Limbo is an adventure puzzle game where the player gets to control a little boy who wakes up in a dark, dreary forest who soon realizes he needs to search for his sister. But finding his sister is no easy task.

The long forest takes you to many places: into caverns, up trees, across lakes, up ladders, and face to face with dangerous . . . things. I will keep that secret for when you eventually play the game. I recommend avoiding videos of this short and sweet adventure.

WHY I ENJOYED LIMBO:

I was hooked the moment I began my journey. The graphics were immediately striking with the world being consumed in darkness only brightened by the rays of white light coming from the background.

I remember waiting for the game to start only to realize it already had—the lack of on-screen health bars, inventory, and display really helped in immersing me into the game world. But it was the adventure, as well as the puzzles, along the way that kept me playing . . .
