Many curses and broken keyboards comes with this game. Only kidding, but you get my point. Binding of Isaac is an extremely challenging game, you will find yourself frustrated and often, wanting to quit the game, but you won't. Trust me, although frustrating this game is hell a lot of fun.
Binding of Isaac delivers dark humour and I find myself amused and chuckling at them. The games has randomized dungeon and the controls are easy to learn. On some runs you would find yourself having some godly item on just the first level and crap on others. That's the beauty of this game.
There are bosses at the end of every level, some are easy but most are challenging, there are also mini bosses which have their own very unique mechanics. The difficulty of the levels starts to pick up at level 3, and you would find yourself on the very edge of your seat, dodging bullets and monsters.
You would have a hard time finding a game as addicted and fun as The Binding of Isaac, especially at 5 dollars. What are you waiting for? Pick this game up now and prepare for tons of fun!
much loved rougelikedamienjameswebb | Feb. 7, 2014 | See all damienjameswebb's reviews »
this was my fist dive into the world of rougelikes, and at times it was frustrating, but i loved every second of it.
The art style is the coolest thing about this game. it has a very hand drawn feel almost and it makes it feel very much like the old flash games the creator used to make. it needs proper controller support, but it does link you to a program to use if you wish to do so.
its a fast paced twin stick shooter basically with rpg-like elements almost... kinda...but not really. And its hard... like really hard. i've been playing since it first came out and i still can't get to the ending. however, it makes me want to play it more and more. the gameplay is easy enough to learn and it runs very well except for when there are a lot of enemies on screen at once moving around (but it takes quite a lot to do so). It wasn't until i downloaded the dlc that it started getting really good because before then the bosses were a little too repetitive, and the enemies were getting pretty predictable. wish there was a way to build your own levels to test your friends, or an online or co-op mode would be cool.
there is defiantly more ways to make this already great game even more great... but its still pretty great... yeah
Randomly generated rougelikekontotestowe | Jan. 28, 2014 | See all kontotestowe's reviews »
The Binding of Isaac is rouge like with totally randomly generated dungeons. The longer you play, the game gives you more different items and bosses. There is no the same game. Every time when you click "Start" you can be sure that it will be different rooms, enemies and items. Isaac is pretty nice but bad optimized production. I had no problems to learn to play it. The gameplay is pleasant and very comfortable. It's always fair with us. When we've died, we did it because of fails. It's easy to play but very hard to become master. I think DLC (Wrath of the Lamb) is mandatory to buy because it give you access to many bosses, rooms, items and characters.
Addicting with great replay valuefredward93 | Jan. 24, 2014 | See all fredward93's reviews »
I started this game thinking I could get a couple hours of entertainment for a low price. However, it is unbelievable how addicting this game gets after a few tries. It is really good at getting you to say "maybe just one more run". Each run is different from the one before with random rooms and items that either help or hurt your chances of getting to the next floor. This game is super fun and you will not regret spending the money on it.
Charming in a very gross wayNeonberry | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all Neonberry's reviews »
The Binding of Isaac is a unique action/adventure game about a miserable kid who has to face different surreal creatures fighting his way through the basement. It may not look like much, but the game is really addictive and insanely hard. You will die and die again just like in the good old platformers designed to eat up all your spare change. The artistic style of the game shows that you don't need at all to be realistic to disgust the players. Even though every moment of the game is gross and depressive somehow it still manages to be charming and lovable. I have to be honest, I didn't manage to finish the game so far but I would highly recommend it to anyone who is happy to face a challenge and is not grossed out easily.
