"Limbo-style" games?

Grimm is kind of like it, but the only one I'd deaf recommend is Nihilumbra. I think it's better than Limbo and IMO probly in the top 10 IOS games ever. I'd consider it the test to showing your a true gamer if you can beat the entire game.

Some other games that are kind of like it(dunno if they were mentioned)

PenumBear
Unmechanical
Waking Mars
Oscura
Night Sky
Dynamite Jack
Swordigo
Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin
NYX Quest
Gene Effect
Glow Fish
Perfect Cell
FancyPants Adventure
Aquaria
Osmos

I don't think dead runner is exactly low quality... The graphics are good, it's just a simple concept like cube runner.

Which was first, gene effect or waking mars? They both seem to be really similar, or to be more precise, the exact same premise with almost identical artwork, just the former has a slightly darker art style...

Well penumbear is very-very far from being a low quality game..it's one of the best puzzle platformer on iOS if you ask me..

It has been mentioned before..

Oh, yeah, thanks mate! I just confused the name a bit.
But it totally fits in this category.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

It seems quite odd then that despite Gene Effect being released later and having such ridiculously close similarities that there haven't really been any complaints against it to have it pulled.

I don't think they are that similar, one is about controlling a person and building ecosystems and the other is more about collecting stuff controlling a ship.
