I applaud you all. (Review of the actual game)

This review goes for the actual game (Yes , i have it) , not for the demo.

Sorry for the wall of text. I haven't reviewed anything and i think i should give a detailed review of the game , to help people that want to buy it.

This game it's extremely fun to play whenever you don't know what to do. Whenever i'm asking myself what should i do next i end up playing this game because , just like Super Meat Boy , it's ridicously addictive! The intro was simple but original , and the voice acting was AMAZING! I wish you people would do more game with voices , i loved the voices and the voice acting in the intro and it would've been great to hear you guys talk more in an actual game.

The game is quite simple , everything gets regenerated completely at random , so there's a huge amount of replay value. You can have the best of luck and find an item that gives you more damage or you could just find a pill that makes you shit a bomb. (Literally)

The framerate of the game , while extremely choppy at this demo , is very fluid in the actual game , i actually liked how fluid the game worked.

The artwork reminds me of Super Meat Boy , which is actually a good thing , i like the artwork a lot , there's a nice attention to detail in some of the enemies.

The game is filled with a lot of content , i DARE you to collect every item in the game. It'll take you weeks , maybe even months. Some items you've just got to find out what it does. Either it can save your life or it can terminate it when you're doing very good. There are thousands of surprises like the mini-bosses.

The gameplay is very addictive and fast , it plays like Legend of zelda in a certain way (Like the attack+item inventory or the fact that the gameplay itself is similar) it can be very challenging at some points specially because of the main fact of the game , what makes this game so damn hard...It's that once you die , you're done. You don't get 3 lives or anything like that , you die, you go back to the beggining. You may be saying it's bad , but it's not. While it IS frustrating as hell it's what makes the replay value so high. Just like Super Meat Boy , the game is hard and challenging and that's a good thing , i'm tired of how every single player coming out this year are First person shooters. Not that i hate FPSs , but if i want single player i'm sure as hell not looking for one , since they're too easy. And challenge is a good thing to accomplish gameplay, since you don't want the game to win. Sure , sometimes i ragequitted , like everybody else would do , but i keep getting back to this game because it's extremely addictive and fun. If you don't like challenge or you're simply not into top-down shooters , this game may not sound too good for you. And that's understandable, it's not everybody's kinda game , but it's my kind of game , that's for sure.

And here goes my favorite part of this game : The music. MY GOD the music.
The soundtrack that plays while you're playing is just amazing , i never get tired of hearing it and it just adds a lot more to the creepy atmosphere that the game creates. Sure , it may not be scary , but it IS awesome. It's as if the game would try to push you forward with it. The music is the first thing i noticed to be awesome (Although , as you may have noticed by reading this review , not the last) and definitly what i liked the most about this game. My congratulations to Matthias Bossi. He deserves a price just because of the main soundtrack of the game.

Well , that's it for my Binding of Isaac review. I hope you guys liked it.
So as i said ,the game is awesome in various ways, and definitly an underrated gem. Lots of people wouldn't just get it by watching videos and would like to try the game by themselves.
Well , that's what this demo is for. Give the demo a try and if you like it , you may want to play the actual game.
You should also make the DEMO downloadable on Steam. After all that's where the game came from.
I'm running out of characters here. So see you all , and hope you enjoyed my review.
