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.

The Binding of Isaac is a randomly generated action RPG shooter with heavy Rogue-like elements. 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.

Played Demo, Bought Game, put 20+ hours into it

This game is AMAZING. I bought myself a copy, played it for a few hours, then bought both of my friends a copy on Steam. My girlfriend also bought one....needless to say, they all love it.

Review:

Gameplay: Fun, fast-paced, random (which is great because it makes a different game every time it is played). I absolutely love how the dungeons are completely random and the difficulty changes each time you play. Absolutely makes for great replay value.

Concept: The story itself is pretty self explanatory, but it add so much of a thinking element.... polysemous. It really makes you think about so many concepts if you actually take the time to really think beyond the intro story.

Art / "Graphics": Simple, "whimsically dark", and just appropriate.

Music: Daniel Baranowsky does an amazing job with the soundtrack. I've heard his music before on OCRemix and know he is an amazing musician. I've never heard any of his original work until now, but holy sh--, the soundtrack really sets a great atomosphere. The theme for the 4th section (Spoiler so i wont name it), by far being an example.

Anyway. 10/10, I recommend this to anyone and everyone.

Not bad, but...

It does kind of feel like a step backwards from Super Meat Boy. Not one to nitpick, but procedural levels are there to expand what's already there; it doesn't add anything new. Also, it's kind of difficult to discern where exactly your hitbox is located, so dodging attacks can get tricky in a bad way.
