    benward's Limbo (PC)

    [August 30, 2012 04:23:45 PM]
    As a true indie game enthusiast, I always begin my gaming session with great anticipation when I see screenshots for a dark and eerie game such a Limbo. Only after the first 15 minutes of gameplay, you could tell that the game was trying to accomplish something much greater than just innovative platforming puzzles. Overall feel of gameplay to create an unfamiliar experience in the dark and eerie world which is Limbo was equally as important if not more to the developer. The music in conjunction with horrifying misty shading for the games interwoven parallax backgrounds created a mysterious feel only making me eager to play and explore more. This may explain why I completed the entire game in one sitting! It was simply extremely hard to put down due to the overwhelming environment.
    In addition to the environment driving the game, gameplay was also extremely enjoyable. The game’s puzzles hard excellent difficulty scaling and design. I have tons of experience playing puzzle – platformers and regardless this games content still felt fresh as opposed to the usual regurgitated puzzles. Even experienced platformers will get stuck playing this game and will definitely be required to think…however will (hopefully) solve eventually and will prove to be a more rewarding an enjoyable experience than a frustrating one. Many puzzles took advantage of the unique environment and after playing for a while began to logically make more sense to the player while at the same time not feeling stale. Each level (or rather segment) the game had provided for unique puzzle one-after-another.
    I would love to in detail go into my praise over level design individually, however I will not as I do not wish to spoil the experience for any potential readers of this. Defiantly pick the game up and give it a try. It’s only $10 on Steam and I believe has already been on sale for even cheaper in the past. It’s even been in a previous Humble Indie Bundle: “Humble Bundle V”. (Which you should ALWAYS buy…any price you want to pay, great indie games, AND money goes to charity…what more could you ask for?) So that pretty much sums everything up…great game 5/5.
