The elementary peculiar in Limbo is a innominate boy, lovingly called Puchomona, who awakens in the heart of a forest on the «edge of hell» (the game's entitlement is taken from the Latin limbus, significance «edge»). While seeking his missing sister, he encounters only a few magnanimous characters, who either decompose him, run away, or are disused. At one objective during his way, he encounters a female peculiar, who abruptly vanishes before he can reach her. The forest at the end of the day gives way to a crumbling diocese locale. On conclusion of the irrevocable confound, the boy is thrown through a panel of lorgnon and deny into the forest. He walks a short-lived until he again encounters a dame, who, upon his movement, stands up, startled. At this objective, the prepared abruptly ends. The performer controls the boy throughout the prepared. As is customary of most two-dimensional dais games, the boy can run or right, gloss over, climb onto short-lived ledges or up and down ladders and ropes, and skedaddle or run away objects. Limbo is presented through threatening, greyscale graphics and with minimalist ambient sounds, creating an frightful poetic, haunting locale. The threatening visuals also camouflage numerous environmental and bones hazards, such as poisonous hold up traps on the forest bottom, or mortal monsters hiding in the shadows, such as a leviathan spider. Among the hazards are favourable worms, which cement themselves to the boy's run and constrain him to hang around in only one captaincy unless refulgent scintillation comes in ring up with it, which changes the captaincy of the performer until it is removed by unchanged NPCs. The game«s second half features reflex puzzles and traps using machinery, electromagnets, and reserve. Many of these traps are not plain until triggered, often with poisonous consequences. The performer is able to restart at the last encountered checkpoint, with no limits placed on how many times this can become manifest. Some traps can be avoided and used later in the game; one hold up beguile is used to fasten together onto an animal»s carcass, hung from the end of a lure, tearing the carcass off the lure and allowing the and lure to withdraw upwards and allow the boy to climb onto a mantle otherwise out of reach. As the performer will likely clash with numerous deaths before they clear up each confound and unreduced the prepared, the developers request Limbo a «trial and death» prepared. Some deaths are enlivened with images of the boy's dismemberment or beheading, although an uncompulsory stab sift blacks out the boob tube instead of showing these deaths. Prepared achievements (uncompulsory in-prepared goals) incorporate verdict obscured insect eggs and completing the prepared with five or fewer deaths.
