A forest, bathed in ominous, black white light. The wind whistles, and a low rumble penetrates from somewhere to our ears. In the grass a boy is. We press a key, nothing happens. We press again. Suddenly, the boy opened his eyes slowly rises and starts running. so unusual limbostarts - no main menu, or render intro tutorial - so unusual it goes on.

The atmosphere: For cutting close

No introduction, no dialogue, no cutscenes. Limbo tells his story unusual sparingly. That the unnamed boy is in his personal purgatory in search of his little sister, you get with only marginally.

But that does not matter, but rather sparked a fair amount of tension as well as a motivating curiosity about what is waiting in limbo, this eerily beautiful black and white world to us what obstacles stand in our way - and how it ends well. Limbo generates a dense atmosphere for cutting, which owes the program, especially its refined light and shade. In the dimly lit 2D levels you never see particularly much, which makes for thrills, but always enough to keep overview and orientation. The harmonious appearance, combined with perfectly placed blur effects, subtle employed music as well as the grandiose, enriched by all sorts of rumblings, whistling and hissing noise suck formally into play.

The puzzles: clever and sophisticated

Much of the magnificent atmosphere contribute to the challenges posed us the program. Where we initially only jump across chasms, climb obstacles and dodging traps, it is soon to push boxes to the right place to achieve projections to enable production lines to move or transport with cranes a tire then at the right moment to enable pressure switch.

Thanks to the comprehensible physics engine that cleverly designed puzzles not only demand, they also make a lot of fun. Since massive metal tubes want such lists in vibration by repeated back and forth, pushed by wooden planks brackish water or large stone balls being diverted as improvised roller. Although Limbo stingy with information that tinkering with the available boxes, toys, cars, cables and switches motivated yet. Mainly because some smart solutions often provide broad grin.
