Hi, I saw the game the other day on iTunes and I want to know if it is worth the $5, it looks like a small game. But is it worth it?

It's $2 on iTunes right now. Yes, it's worth it.

Yes. Superb.

Deliciously creepy. I'm not a huge platformer fan but I played it all the way through. Good mix of timing/jump skills and puzzles.

I had a better experience with the mobile version as the Mac version was never updated to include gamepad support. If you have an app to map keyboard input to a gamepad I'd suggest it, the timing on later levels really requires faster input that benefits from a gamepad.

I was told we could stop counting his birthdays after he hit 100. Clearly I was misinformed.

Which of my nine lives are you talking about?  Anyway that's irrelevant now ever since I discovered the miracle of organ theft.

Speaking of Limbo, Playdead's new game Inside is getting rave reviews. Hope it gets a Mac release soon.
