Limbo Guide

Unofficial Limbo Guide by Mike Hazleton for


Limbo is a dark and heavily-stylised Xbox Live Arcade game. The story revolves around a young boy struggling to progress through a hostile environment. You control him, and through a series of platforming and puzzle elements, must attempt to reach the final stage of the game. The main draw of Limbo, apart from some tricky puzzle sections, is the animation. Your character is often killed in humorous and gory ways, setting this game apart from any competition. Furthermore, it is completely in black and white, which has allowed the developers to focus solely on animation.

The chapters making up Limbo are only revealed once you complete the main game. However, I would suggest only using this guide when stuck on a particular section, or to get the final achievement, where you must complete the game dying five or less times, and in one sitting. This way, you will still enjoy the surprises and shocks that the game has to throw at you. This guide also contains all the achievements and secret egg locations.

Thanks, I got stuck at where I have to double push the gravity to get the box out (chapter 23?) and then again where I had to change the gravity twice. Basically, the same mistake that prevented me from going through the game on my own. All other tasks I've completed on my own. A fun game.

I agree. This has been a helpful guide indeed. Thank you. Your efforts are appreciated Mike. Ultragammacyborg is just an insecure troll. He's just some guy that may or may not have played the game and telling EVERYONE how sorry his virgin life is by discrediting a reliable LIMBO guide like this.

Isn't that how guides are made; buy someone who has finished the game and wants to help other people?

Added 17th Dec 2011, ID #95902

Lol. This isn't even a guide. It's some guy that's played the game and is telling everyone what EVERYONE who has play LIMBO already knows...
