Since the release of Limbo, there have been numerous games that have attempted to emulate the Playdead’s popular indie platformer. Some Android titles have gotten to the point of appearing to be Limbo knock-offs, while others seem to have taken inspiration from Limbo’s presentation or overall atomsphere.
Gamers not looking for another Limbo clone will be happy to know that FRACTER has not gone in that direction. While the game does appear to have a similar overall feel, with a young hero tasked with navigating a strange world shrouded in darkness, 4L’s new title seems to offer quite a different experience.
