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.

Bought the game already,

Didn't know there was a demo on newgrounds though, so I get to review it.

It's a really ood game, however the only thing i don't like about it is you have to start back from the beginning when you game over. But that just makes me play more cautious.

So in a sense, I kinda do like the difficulty of it. The random items from each playthrough is really something else. Love how you can become lucky or even UNlucky. Remember coming to a secret room where I could choose between an angel item or the devil item. Had no idea that I could only choose one, and i chose the devil item then the angel item. Instant death. No idea if that was meant to do that, but it made me laugh out loud.

The game is brutal in the sense it frustrates you, but it also makes you want to keep playing just so you can see the ending. I have yet to beat Mom as well.

I love all the randomness in the game.

@nunchuck, those arent glitches bro. The fire CAN harm you, that's why you don't walk into them. It can harm you as well as the enemy. The items appearing without any walkway, it either requires a ladder or blowing up rubble next to the hole to make a path. There really isn't anything to "fix." I encourage you to play more and experiment and explore. I bet you haven't even fiured out there are hidden rooms.

Also, which brings me to the hidden rooms. It was from pure luck that I even found a hidden room random bomb to kill an enemy. I guess another complaint would be that hidden rooms are just a tad bit hard to find. There isn't any clue as to where one can find it, unless you have that item to help. But i guess that's just another thing with how hard the game can be.

Good job anyways.
Keep it up.
Worth my money.

Cheers, Peli.

Thank you

I really enjoy the whole idea to the plot and game, kinda has a zelda/bomberman feel to it that i find nostalgic, Have to admit i just found the secret room and just enjoyed the little tune instead of continued playing :)

you should have put a beta instead

The game was amazing however the glitches really annoy me for instance ill kill a monster on a platform and it will die but i cant get my reward and one time i had half a heart left and i died by fire there are a lot of things you need to fix but other than than that i loved the voices the music and the artwork i will bye the game of of steam

Some People Missed the Point - I LOVED IT!

Maaaaaaaaaaan. Some people seemed to have missed the point for Isaac. It's a rouge-like! The game is deep and challenging and well over worth five dollars. It has 11+ endings (6 of which I have gotten, although it's 5 endings and 1 Epilogue).

It's FUN and long. Not to mention there is so much in the simple mechanics. I simply love the bullet curving! The bosses are fun and different especially after beating "MOM!". I also love the story and in its madness and twisted-ness.

I love it and recommend it! Some people just choose not to look into a game. Some people don't even know you can curve bullets! *Facepalm*

I enjoy it and I hope you don't continue to receive mindless flack, although that's me asking too much from the idiocracy of Newgrounds.

You know

I just don't know who you were aiming for. After the precise masterpiece of design (albiet, with some frustrating glitches) that was Super Meat Boy, this lazy, zelda hud ripoff of a crappy twin stick shooter (that is strictly 90 degrees all around for shooting) is actually offensive. Not offensive in that i'm offended by that subject matter, or what is depicted in game, but with how lazy the animations are, how crude and uninspired the gameplay is, and how absolutely boring the sound design is. I just can't seem to find ANYTHING redeeming about this title at all.

Sorry guys, but serious swing and a miss here. Good luck next time.
