Limbo iOS Impressions – The Same Beautiful Experience, With Inferior Controls
CommentComment I consider myself a bit of a Limbo expert. When the game released on PlayStation 3, I played through it again getting the fewer than five deaths Trophy this time , and yet again when it was made available on Steam. I love everything about Limbo, from its ambiguous story and ending to its terrifying sound design and beautiful visuals. I simply cannot get enough.
CommentComment I consider myself a bit of a Limbo expert. When the game released on PlayStation 3, I played through it again getting the fewer than five deaths Trophy this time , and yet again when it was made available on Steam. I love everything about Limbo, from its ambiguous story and ending to its terrifying sound design and beautiful visuals. I simply cannot get enough. I was excited to learn that the game was coming to iOS , knowing that it would open up the game to a wider audience.
Some of those concerns are justified, but in a few areas, Limbo on iOS exceeds my expectations. Otherwise, jumps are usually easy to clear, and detailed movement is rarely necessary. One of Limbo’s more difficult timing-centric puzzles seen above, was more difficult using the touchscreen controls An invisible d-pad on the left side of the screen is used to move left and right and climb ladders and ropes. To jump, you swipe up. If you are already moving, when you swipe up to jump, the boy retains his momentum.
This is one of the areas where controlling the boy surprised me, and felt right. Holding down your thumb on the right side of the screen makes him interact with objects and switches. The biggest problem I ran into was the fickleness of the invisible d-pad. Sometimes the boy would just stop moving mid-jog and I would have to reset my thumb. It was frustrating, but in a weird way, it made the game scary again.
With the imperfect controls, getting away from the spider which I have done so many times is terrifying all over again. That jump that I had perfected through all of my playthroughs was suddenly intimidating again.
This, of course, is only a good thing for seasoned Limbo players. For more on Limbo, be sure to check out our original review. You can head here to grab the game for your iPhone or iPad.
