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.

Nice

Its a nice game. But, I have a thing to say about these paid games: people who doesnt live in USA may have trouble having access to Internet-paid stuff. First, because we may be poor (wich is my case). Second, because we have to pay in dollars, not in my country's currency. I would pay 5 bucks (wich turns to be almost 10 reais, the brazilian currency), but, being a payment in dollars, I have to pay taxes too. Thats why I cant experience games like Minecraft, for instance. If there were means to this little flashgame to be bought in Brazil without all this crap, I would gladly do. But, as 99% of internet-paid games are meant to be bought by the USA people, I just have to please myself with free stuff. anyway, the demo is nice, I just feel a little pissed for not being able to fully enjoy "simple" stuff like flash games.

Great game

I decided to review the full-version here, just because I can. It's an awesome game, and I can play it over and over again without it getting boring due to the excellent randomly generated dungeons. My only complaint is the Boss fights with Gurdy. He is way, way too overpowered compared to the rest of the bosses, and I've only ever beaten him once in all the times I've played (the other bosses are easy to deal with) and in the end it's frustrating having to get as far as I do only to feel hopeless whenever I face him. Apart from this one issue, the game is lots of fun.

Decent, but is it ethical?

Is it really ethical to expect people to pay for procedurally generated content? I still haven't paid for the full version of Powder, yet, because frankly I don't relish the thought of spending money on a game that's not always possible to win.

Or, in the case of your game, spending money just to lock away content behind the randomizer. Why wouldn't I just rather enjoy and laugh at all the silly art and symbolism all in one swoop? Why purposefully frustrate myself in having to play numerous times just to catch that one, pesky little item that is staying hidden in some specific seed somewhere?

And there's another thing: how many possible variations on the world do you promise? I.e. how wide is the seed you're using? Am I going to see the same world twice, ever?

And one last thing: is it available for my iPod touch? The only way I'm going to pay for a little appy-game right now is if it's for my iPod touch.

Initially taking aback

But kinda got into this. Aside to the up-to-date flash graphics, this is basically a VERY old game, both in spirit and in mechanics. The kinda stuff that used to entertain me for hours for it's pure simplicity and minimalistic approach to game design. It especially helps that there is the modern vibe of actually narrative and the afore-mentioned graphics.

What I realise out of this is that I have been fed full fat crap and forgotten how to enjoy a game of this fashion.

Also, I bought the full version off steam, but being in dorms I can't fuckin download it X(. How suckish.
