About the game:

When Isaac's mother starts hearing the voice of God demanding a sacrifice be made to prove her faith, Isaac escapes into the basement facing droves of deranged enemies, lost brothers and sisters, his fears, and eventually his mother.

Following Isaac on his journey players will find bizarre treasures that change Isaac's form giving him super human abilities and enabling him to fight off droves of mysterious creatures, discover secrets and fight his way to safety.

It's got that Newgrounds feel

The full game feels as close to what newgrounds in a box would be like if such a thing could be managed.

I wasn't going write a review (because I'm lazy like that) but then saw the review by mrhertz. It appears that he bought the game, but it sounds like he hasn't enjoyed it very much and sounds discouraging. Allow me to make a few adjustments to his list.

1- you can shoot straight, but shots will angle if you move. You can use this around rocks as a guerrilla tactic.

2- enemies either are earth bound or can fly over pits and rocks. there are upgrades that will let you fly too!

3- you can escape almost any room unharmed if you know the enemies attack patterns and have good reflexes.

4- Items are random, but only a few pills hurt you. You may not like the items you find, but it's up to you to use it well.

5- different enemies have a different sized hitbox, and you can find upgrades for speed, power, and range plus an upgrade that makes Issac much smaller.

6- I don't really get this point. Don't most games that are a challenge have enemies with a lot of advantages over the player? isn't that what a challenging, non-puzzle game is?

7- The game was made to be a quick playthrough and there are a ton of upgrades. I think check points and difficulty levels would take away from the experience a little.

8- mrhertz's point number 8 is true, but that's neither a good nor bad point of the game.

Luck luck luck. Luck is only half the deal. The other two halves are persistance and skill. That makes three halves, which means if you don't have one, use the other two!!

I really enjoy the quirky challenge that is The Binding of Issac. I have beaten the game once, but have yet to finish the unlocked levels, but have enjoyed each failed run.

Now, I wouldn't recommend spending a large amount of time continuously trying to beat it. It should be treated like a fine wine, a glass or two at a time when the mood is nice. if you try to chug it, you won't be able to enjoy the unique flavor of gameplay.

Perhaps The Binding of Issac is the wrong drink for you. This game does seem to be more of an acquired taste, but please don't give up on it so easily! It could be that later you find it is a taste you enjoy!

P.S. Sorry if I sound too aggressive. It's just something I developed from having verbally competitive siblings.

P.P.S. I turn 21 next month! Can you tell with all the alcohol references? (I only counted one, but whatever)
