Limbo is one of the finest games ever released in the App Store, and even if you’ve experienced Limbo before, you’d do well to play it again on iOS. The game looks and sounds amazing, the world you’re thrown into is so dark and mysterious, and is just begging to have all of its secrets uncovered. If you somehow missed out on this experience three years ago, it’s an absolute Must Have. This game is a classic.

It's not just the journey and the puzzles that have remained intact here, though. Most importantly, nothing about the original game's feverishly bleak visuals and haunting ambient audio work has been lost in translation. Despite it's overwhelmingly gray palette, Limbo remains a beautifully grim work of art - one that shines particularly brightly on a Retina display.

Limbo's visuals are unparalleled. The gameplay, while not overly complex and slightly less fine-tuned as its console cousin, is more than adequate. And the overall package is really quite solid. Playdead knows this and the price tag reflects that polish. But is Limbo worth it? Well, there certainly are no shortage of beautiful physics puzzle/platformers already in the App Store, but there's not many that can match Limbo's overall quality.
