TouchGen: LAD review

TouchGen: Limbo is one of the most atmospheric, and haunting games I have ever played on my Playstation 3. It was an exhausting experience because the child protagonist kept dying gruesome deaths without me understanding why. Everything was drowned in a shroud of mystery, and especially the longer walks without any obstacles led me to question why this child was forced to walk to his death. Anyone faced with the first spider enemy know how futile it felt, and how horrible the death was being impaled like a cherry tomato on a barbecue skewer. Any game taking Limbo as a primary inspiration has to really perform in story telling, realistic controls and setting a dark mood. Some games have taken some inspiration, but then gone down an own path. On iOS Nihilumbra is an excellent example of a highly emotional platformer with an own personality. Another example of a game that took hints from the presentation in Limbo, and then combined it with the agility of Super Mario is one of my personal favorite platformers: The Adventures of Kitty, Run Kitty Run. (iPad, iPhone, LAD) 2.5/6
