Customer Reviews


Just wow. This game is something everyone needs to experience. The gameplay is fluid and the puzzles are insanely challenging but clever and keep you interested even after you've been electrocuted or chopped in half for the tenth time in a row. Contrary to other reviews, I quite enjoyed the controls. After you've had some practice with them they become second nature and you can flick and swipe your way through the stages with a fluidity that is really satisfying.

The most striking part of this game is the atmosphere. The visuals are beautiful in their simplicity but the sound design is absolutely top of the line. Everything makes little noises when you interact with it and it serves to really immerse you in this strange environment.

I beat the game in about 5 hours on an 8 hour plane flight and spent the remaining 3 hours just enjoying the world and collecting secrets. Even after clearing everything I can clear I still pick it up to replay just to savor the experience again. Plunk down the $5 for this master piece.

AWESOME GAME. Bad controls though😬

I REALLY love this game! It's so fun and addicting and I know people said that you will never make a sequel but I think it'd be awesome if you did, like the boy & his sister try to get out of limbo, and make it twice as long! Idk, that would just be really cool. The only bad thing about it are the controls. I got the hang of it but it's still hard. Like sometimes if I'm trying to push a box or something then it will end up jumping in the opposite direction. There are a lot of annoying things about the controls but I still would totally recommend this game! It's still really fun! I 100% recommend it! And I know it used to be like $4 or $5 but now that's it's only $.99 you really need to get it!

Unique, haunting.

Is this what 'limbus' is like? Limbo = Limbus= Edge (of hell). [the temporary status of the souls of good persons who died but did not go to Heaven].

The game developer must have a good idea of the above definition. Amazing visuals in monochrome, with realistic sound effects. A bit depressing to play after a while, but this is a horror game. As others have said the controls are a bit dicky, but this is a touchscreen. The game play is essentially structured as trial by death. You will die many times. There is no plot narrative just gameplay which I think is good for a game such as this. You're only hint is the title & description. Great value considering that this game is difficult in the later levels. There are lots of hidden achievements to collect including the very difficult 'ding' achievement.
