Default Limbo

Anyone try this game on XBL Arcade?

I must say it is very unique and addicting!

Wow, that looks dark and very cool. There's a trial too. It may be worth $15.

Thanks Papa jAkUp.

Which part? The traps? You need to move them apart so you can jump over them separately.

The game isn't that difficult. Lots of trial and error but thanks to unlimited lives and a good checkpoint system it never is fustrating.

This looks great and I love Braid so this should be just as good. Going to buy it when I get back in town.

I just saw this reviewed on Good Game. Looks like a pretty intense game. I had no idea it was so graphic, which says a lot as all you can see is a silhouette. Not many games where you can see a young boy, drown, fall to his death, be impaled, have his dead cut off, attacked by giant spiders and other boys, who in turn have their own grisly fates.

Not a game for kids that's for sure, but that doesn't stop it from being one of the best games of the year.
