    I consider myself a bit of a Limbo expert. I played the game multiple times when it released on Xbox 360, even getting the “fewer than five deaths” Achievement.

    It’s rare that I have such a visceral and immediate reaction to a game as I have to Final Fantasy: ATB, which just released for play on iPhone and iPad.

    As is common with mobile games, I came across 10000000 via good word of mouth.

    In my history as a gamer, I’ve always felt the need to buy almost every console and portable on day one.
