"One may play for an hour or two, but they're constantly tempted to go back in and uncover the scads of remaining secrets. It's a style of game that really intrigues me, and one I want to see more of" - Gamecritics.com

The music, graphics and atmosphere are very well done and you can tell this is a labour of love, not something churned out to make money.
The game itself is like Zelda on the NES except with gross things and babies.
I would give 100 but the only bad thing is the game is made in Flash and can be laggy on some computers. (They are remaking it in c++ but the music and graphics are different which spoils it a bit).

The game is pretty amazing and well designed. Every dungeon it's randomly generated and each one has a different cool assist item. It's very addicting and gives you hours and hours of fun

I mean...where do I start? The game is basically this - you are the little Isaac who has to kill various monstrosities and escape the basement because his mother is a religious weirdo. Simple, right? Wrong. If only I had counted the times I started over and over and over just because I got hooked up and though I could beat my last result... One of the great things is that every time you start over the levels are generated randomly which makes the replay value go sky high. There is a huge amount of content, items and "secrets" for you to find in the basement.
The only downside that I could think of is that this isn't a Steam supported version. Too bad.
BUY THE GAME. PERIOD.

This game is one of a kind, i fully recommend this game however if you were like me and failed to read the fine print before purchasing this game is not for steam and requires a third party launcher to play it. This Is the DRM version of the game not the Steam version.
Brilliant, funny & challengingGingerokda | Aug. 16, 2014 | See all Gingerokda's reviews »
the concept behind the story is entertaining & the levels are challenging. I love the fact whenever you start again it is NEVER the same, so you can never get bored! It's just brilliant!
