  • Limbo Now Available on iOS


    The eerie but excellent Limbo has now been made available for the iPad 2 (or higher, including iPad mini), the iPhone 4S (and higher) and the latest iPod Touch. For those of you who donít know about it, Limbo stars a young and nameless boy who wakes up in a forest. You arenít given any information such as a backstory or any objectives, which is a strong part of the gameís appeal. In an effort to avoid spoilers, youíll basically encounter other characters and locations which help unravel what youíre supposed to do and why.

    Another big part of the gameís charm is its presentation; Limbo is a 2D black-and-white game, with a heavy emphasis on silhouettes, the smoothly-animated main protagonist, and interesting physics puzzles that get increasingly complex. The overall feel of the game is quite creepy but many people end up appreciating it's craft. The touch controls of the iOS version do take a little bit of getting used to but the developers, Playdead, did a great job with their port of the game.


    Those of you who are interested in trying the game will have to fork over $4.99 at the iTunes App Store. If you havenít had a chance to sit down to play the game on a PC or console yet, it is definitely worth picking up.

      You should probably no that you shouldn't expect many apps to work on iOS 7.

      Sure. But to be fair this is the first app ive had issues with. And we r not picking fights. We r putting down facts to see the hilarious excuses made.

      Nice representation of the iOS Generation there folks where nothing is worth more than 99Ę

      $5.00 is an awesome price for a game that is $10.00 on Steam. It being on iOS should not require it to be cheaper if the game is just as complete as it's PC/Console counterparts. You can afford your iPhones and iPads, you can afford a $5.00 game, that is worth $5.00.

      Is it a good game or not! Only one way to find out, 3 squid is less than the price of a pint so downloading now.

      As for Android, the more I use it, the more I dislike it. Was going to persevere until the next iPhone comes out, but seriously considering getting an iP5 now.

      Seems good, I'm stuck already, but that's nothing unusual.
      I like it, 3 squid is worth it even if I get no further.

      I'm really glad you wrote this, because I was about to say the same thing. God forbid you give somebody else a heads up as opposed to them wasting their money (like I almost did. But thanks to the heads up, I did not.) Wow that guy is a tool.

      Unfortunately, that's not how capitalism works. A thing is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If everyone (I understand this is a pretty small sample of the iOS using population) says that $5 is too much, then $5 is indeed too much and the market will take care of it and that thing will drop in price, or cease to be sold. It doesn't really matter how much it sells/sold for on another platform. This is an entirely different market. We'll see what happens.
