The controls for LIMBO are very basic, and easy to grasp.
- Left/Right moves the boy in the specified direction, and Up/Down lets you climb/descend off of ledges, pipes, chains, or ropes.
- Up Arrow - Jump.
- Ctrl - Grab (combine with movement for pushing and pulling)
There are some situations that you will come across that will slightly alter the movement schemes. For example, when a larva falls on your head, you will be forced to move continuously in a direction, but your left and right will instead slow down or speed up the player if you go against or in the same direction respectively.
Also, keep in mind that the player movement is relative to the camera's view of the boy. If you are walking upside down, left and right will still follow left and right. If you are walking/moving vertically, instead of left and right, you will need to move by pressing Up or Down.
