The popular black and white Xbox 360 puzzler Limbo by Playdead is now available in the App Store. Limbo is a 2D sidescroller that asks gamers to help a nameless boy navigate a number of dangerous obstacles in search of his sister. The iOS version is just as good as the Xbox version that was released back in 2010, but now comes with intuitive touch controls.

Limbo made a lot of waves back when it first hit Xbox Live Arcade in … wow, 2010? Yep, it hit in 2010. Anyway, folks loved its iconic look, dreamlike scenarios, and downright devious puzzle design, which often forced you to suss out a solution by dying. Thinking back, it was kinda a mean game but I loved it.

Now, Limbo is coming to iPhone and iPad, and we’re pretty stoked to report that all the things that made Limbo the celebrated game it is today are all present. The only tweak we’ve noticed so far, actually, are the controls. On touch devices, you swipe and drag on the screen to jump, pull, push, or walk side-to-side. It’s more intuitive than it sounds.

The game is available for iPad 2 or newer, iPhone 4S or newer, or a 5th generation iPod touch for $4,99 in the App Store.
