this game is only really limited by the Flash engine and the developers moving on to other projects (TBoI: Afterbirth)

Through smart design and simple mechanics, The Binding of Isaac manages to feel approachable despite its difficulty. Superfluous elements have been stripped out, and what remains is a tightly focused game that continues to feel fresh even after multiple completions. While it does lack some of the extra bells and whistles of other modern games, The Binding of Isaac remains an enjoyable (and demented) adventure.

All told, The Binding of Isaac is a deceptively deep game. That it only costs $4.99 is nothing short of astounding. I don't see myself putting it down until I hit that magical 100% completion mark, which is hours and hours away at this point. This is one trip that I recommend to everyone open-minded enough to give it a chance.

A smart little game with great music, a plethora of items (will take some getting used to, though), and yucky baddies will have you coming back every now and again to see what new evil lurks around. The expansion pours on more content to keep you entertained. Just be ready for sheer retribution; the game offers no forgiveness for its often surprising difficulty spikes.
