<p>Five years ago, I played Limbo to the end on Xbox 360 and … wow, what a great experience! It's hard to reproduce what you feel after trying it out and coming to the end of a fantastic game for the first time, but after an afternoon with Limbo for Android I can happily say: that first genius sensation is back!</p><div class=

The history of the game

A boy wakes up in a very, very dark forest. The game does not show who he or how he got there. We only know one thing: He has to go through this nightmarish world from right to left. It is not yet shown what awaits him, but we can be sure that it is not about happy and friendly forest dwellers.

Limbo controls for Android are simple and work very well. With a light touch in the lower left corner of the screen the boy moves, sliding his finger in the lower right corner he jumps. As for objects that appear along the way, it automatically picks them up as you approach them. Your goal is to jump and dodge as many enemies as possible, finding the best way (which is often not so simple). There are no weapons for defense. Direct confrontations and falls in the water end with death!

Limbo: One of the many pitfalls of the game. / Playdead

<h2>What fun in the game</h2>
<p>Limbo a puzzle game with a very successful hint of <em>Jump n Run</em>. Who likes to exercise the gray matter and has a weakness for difficult escapades found his <em>game </em>ideal. In my opinion, the best of Limbo is its atmosphere, and the title of the game also programs for the entire route, up to the last second. In this regard, graphics play an essential role. They are so successful that they have already been copied exhausted.</p><div class='code-block code-block-4' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

All the scenery in black and white, and this minimalism gives the permanent tone of danger. This horror often manifests itself in unexpected obstacles, enemies, and traps. Particularly upsetting is the encounter with a giant spider, proving difficult for players suffering from arachnophobia, and the frequent pitfalls surprise and frustrate when we thought we were progressing.

Limbo: a desolate place. / Playdead

<p>The ways of dying in Limbo are diverse, and their graphics make no compromises. We are really abandoned in a hard and brutal world. Our hero can literally lose his head in a matter of seconds. In Germany, for example, the game is not recommended for children under 16.</p>
<p>Another big plus of Limbo is its sound effects. For each situation we have the corresponding sound or noise, even when our character is butchered. In combination with the horror of the screen, the initial fascination with this world gives way to a realistic sense of desolation.

What annoys in the game

Unfortunately I limit a short game. After two hours, the experienced player can reach the end. A few extra hours of play would be most welcome. During this short period, however, the best quality entertainment is guaranteed.

A little annoying are some situations that are resolved after much trial and error. Luckily, they don't show up so often.
