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.

I'm not really 100% sure what it is I'm playing...

The graphics remind me a lot of Super Meat Boy, but everything just seems so dark and depressing! The story definitely creeped me out, but maybe that's the appeal of the whole thing - it's a creepy game!

Overall, gameplay is entertaining, and it's nice that the game doesn't have a consistent order of dungeons and bosses. That way, whenever I fail, I don't have to worry about facing the same boss over and over again.

One of yoru best!

This is a great game, but the weirdest thing is that I get medals even though they don't show up on the author's comments. The music is great and it creates a wonderful atmosphere. I especially like the notion that this little kid is so pathetic. I didn't know the Biblical story of Isaac took place in modern times. Of course, I'm looking too deep into something that should just be pure fun. I got used to the controls pretty easily. I just love how this character has so much mobility to go everywhere.

Everytime you die, you seem to get a different set of levels to go to. It's great how everything is truly unpredictable. I have played a lot of your games before, but none that I was willing to give a 10/10 to! Call me a fan of yours from now on. The enemies are designed wonderfully as well, especially the boss that keeps turning into tinier versions of itself. Even the way the medals flash on screen is cool!

Pretty interesting.

I'll start with what I like:
-The animation is smooth, which is a big plus.
-The music is fitting and well done. Random generation is a plus as well.
-Isaac is a sympathetic character.
-I saw Isaac's doodlepenis.

And what I don't like:
-I don't like that Isaac's head faces me no matter which direction he moves, that seems quite lazy.
-The simplicity of the art style is too basic to make it unique or recognizable like South Park, Simpsons, or even Dan Paladin's basic-but-identifiable style. Instead this seems to be common stick 2.0.
-"3+ hidden characters"? 10+, 100+, even 5+ I suppose makes sense but when you use a weird number like 3 and slap a + on it, it usually means "that number + 1 or 2, but we want you to be way more impressed than you should be." I'm not a fan of cheap marketing attempts.
-Horribly disfiguring Isaac with cybernetic implants is fun from a gameplay perspective, but after establishing him as a character to feel sorry for this just feels horrifically wrong.
-I saw Isaac's doodlepenis.

As a final note, I realize we all have to get by somehow and I certainly wish you the best of luck with selling your game. I hope one day to market stuff on the internet for a little extra pocket change, so sincerely I can relate. However, I think sites like Newgrounds may make this difficult since many games of roughly the same quality level as this one appear here for free. Overall, I find this game to be intriguing, and though I laughed at the thought before, I may end up purchasing this game at some point. You should probably market it as only costing $3+ though...

awesome game, so I bought it

I love games that put a twist to things, especially something common like the bible. I usually don't like games where you have ASDW as movement and the arrow keys as shooting direction but this time I really don't mind because unlike most games like that this one has very fluid controls so I enjoyed it.
