    "This did not appeal to me at first. It's kinda peaceful looking in terms of graphics and I wanted horror. When I did try this, while most horror games would have creepy musical score in the bg for intense moments, Year walk's would achieve the same effect with its total silence moments. Didn;t know it could also work like that! "

    "OMG lots are going through this game in terms of story, graphics, and all that jazz. That's why it's so psycho and horror. I played this game and I got plenty of theories on what's really happening to Fran. Enjoyable nonetheless."

    "Finally I got this game! This is just a sort of point and click game with very few controls for moving and interacting. There are some tough puzzles which took me ages to solve. The story is plenty creepy and scary and I followed through this throughout. So good! Glad to see this at the top of this list."

    "From my perspective this review is not good. It does not solve the problem of letting me know what the player's experience with the game is. It does not give me any opinion of the game; it only says what the game is, which I can find out myself by reading the description. It does not say what technical issues, if any, there are with the game. It does not say if the player liked the experience with the game or not. Also, the grammar is somewhat bad, which makes the review a little hard for me to understand. "

    "I love psychological horror games and wanted something for my iPhone. My friend recommended Limbo. It's a 2D puzzle game that's set in a dark world where you need to solve puzzles to progress forward. If you don't, you die. It's a really atmospheric and dark game, which I love. I love the surprise aspects of it. It's quite challenging, too. Definitely check it out."
