Yesterday was not all about Apple and their influx of products, we also saw Playdead’s LIMBO make it to PSN. The developer would not have been happy to know that their PS3 version of the game got lost due to other events that went on yesterday. However, in a way to spice things up a little and make it stand out against the Xbox 360 version, there are a few little extra gems.
We already knew that they were to offer something extra, and that was bonus content. That content is a hidden trophy, which can only be found by locating all of the easter eggs. Finding these extra eggs will be fun, as you have to begin a chapter where you are in total darkness – it will feel a little like the movie “Pitch Black,” although there is nothing that will cause you harm here.
You will need to have your sound turned up, as you have to keep walking until you hear a boy get into the water. The moment that you hear this you will need to jump to the right, it will not be an easy task but after a few tries you should make the jump. From there you will have to try to clutch the platform, a short jog to the right will bag you the “Alone in the Dark egg trophy.”
PlayStation Lifestyle says that you should not get too complacent, as you will need to make a dash to the right before the door closes on you. LIMBO took the Xbox Marketplace community by storm last year, and it looks set to do the same on the PlayStation Network. One review has given the game 9.25 out of 10 – what a strange score.
As with all games there are there good and bad points, the positives are a well thought out game full of puzzles, dark and eerie, teaching you more than just running around a map shooting and blowing things up and also those hidden eggs and trophies.
There seems to be only two bad points, and that is a short lifespan of the game, and a frustrating ending as well. What we like about the game is that it teaches you that winners never quit and quitters never win. The reason we say this is due to the fact that you will die a lot in the game, and only the determined will make it to the end.
