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.

Hah! I knew this could pass as a flash game!

I bought TBOI shortly after it was released on steam. While I disliked it at first, It really grew on me as the term "replayability" really flexes its muscles in it.
But that's where this demo falls short and ultimately may make the game seem unappealing to people.

You see, You get upgrades every level. It's fun to play the game to build your character and see how messed up (powerful) he can become. So naturally, with fewer levels comes fewer upgrades, and ultimately, that's less fun.

The humor is enjoyable, if although a bit weird, but it's presented in such a format [see: memes]. Finally, the music really sets the tone. I love it. End of story.

I'll follow what every company says with demo's. A demo is not a representation of the final product, and thus, I really can't rate it. I can rate the full game though.

+Seemingly infinite replayability
+LOTS of content
+More content coming up soon
+Sometimes enjoyably deceptive
+Encourages preparation and flexibility

-Somewhat luck-based. (For example if you get no keys during a playthrough yet every door possible is locked)

Lastly, a few tips for new players.

%u25D8Conserve! Not wasting bombs or keys on different things is pivotal.
%u25D8Every level has a secret area. It's always between two rooms that are on the same longitude or latitude.
%u25D8The best way to learn is to learn it yourself. There are wikias over items out there, but I found that the most enjoyable way to make it through the game was to learn every items ability yourself, even if you sometimes felt cheated by the game.
%u25D8Don't play the game once and think you can judge it. ...DON'T.

There, that has to be the closest thing resembling an actual REVIEW that I've done on newgrounds. Although I didn't like SMB, this was more my type of game. Keep up the good work, Edmund, and keep the creativity flowing.

Also, %u10DA(%u0CA0%u76CA%u0CA0%u10DA Y U NO include more meme faces!?

well...

its a creative play off of zelda, i'll give you that... but button config is a little weird and was the sole purpose of the game to make you lose? checkpoints would've been helpful. and what was the point of kamikaze if when you die you have to restart? i dont understand your logic

:D :D

I liked how you made fun of christianity. as for the game (I played the full version already) I think you seriously need to have checkpoints, other than that it's a fun game.

Epic game!

I love this game! Just wish that you had a continue button when you died so that you could start over but in the same level where you died. Great game though :)
10/10, 5/5!

took a bit but i get it

it took a bit to get the hang of it but i got it.
fun and changeling but i do not want buy it.
really i think it's the first game i have really seen a DEMO then a link to buy the game on this web site.......liked the demo didn't like the fact you have to buy the full one.
PLEASE tell me this web site isn't gone to turn into one of those webs sites.

would have been 10 stars but the fact you have to buy the full one kicked it down
