I can't say enough good things about Limbo. It blew my mind when I played it back on the Xbox 360, and I've got both sets of fingers and toes crossed that it translates well to iOS. The original release saw stellar reviews, so, provided the controls work well, we're definitely sailing into "must have" territory.


If all goes as planned, the game will hit the US App Store at 11:00 PM tonight for $4.99. There's a thread in our forums you can follow along with as excitement builds throughout the day.

      Same guy who says "pastorized" milk is something you give fat cows for services rendered?

    • toxiccheese

        Mmm pasta

  • Flare_TM

    Meh, its like Journey, only good to be played once.

    • Jake7905

      I still can't get through a full song by Journey. I hear, "Don't stop...", but I do.

      • ImJPaul

        Journey is a game. Just in case you didn't know. And to the original response how can you just play journey once?! It's sooooo good.

      • Flare_TM

        Because I've experienced it, taken away what I have from that experience which was very powerful and it would spoil it by going back again

      • ImJPaul

        I don't know if that game can be spoiled. So short but soooo well done.

      • Jake7905

        I disagree, that's like playing a song you love only once, or a movie you love only once. Sure, the initial experience always has the strongest emotional impact but that doesn't completely devalue additional play through's.

    Ass cancer...

  • MrAShkerEsq

    Wow this is almost like a taste of the ye olde 'coming tonight' post that wet your loyal readers appetites, and everyone misses, before you decided to ignore their wishes and respects just to farm clicks for your site. The very same website your loyal fans helped build in the first place. What shame!!

    • ImJPaul

      Calm down. They gotta make a living too and we get most of it sooner anyways. I still haven't seen the problem that people (like yourself) have with it. Live and let live.

    • homosaur

      Make yer own site then, dick.

  • oldgamer dude

    Well I'm not in limbo about this purchase, no sir

  • rnarvin

    Incredibly disappointed it's not iPhone 4 compatible.

    • homosaur

      Old tech. Probably not enough power.
