The Binding of Isaac is an amazing game,

It's really difficult in the beginning and you'll have to restart a lot but due to the amazing number of total Items in the game and the random generation of floors, every run will be completely different than the other one. This game truly never gets old!

One minor downside to this game is that it runs in Flash and thus sometimes performes kind of bad, but never game breaking. One advice I would give for this is to use Spidermod, it makes the game run much better in my opinion.

There is also an expansion pack available for the Binding of Isaac that is called 'the Wrath of the Lamb'. Just like the main game this expansion pack is awesome, it adds a ton of new items to the game, a new pickup called trinkets which give you a certain passive effect. It also adds harder floors and curses which have a chance of appearing. The expansion is definately worth picking up but I would reccomend that you only buy it AFTER you've killed mom a few times because it greatly increases the difficulty of the game which could be troubling for new players.

The Binding of Isaac is definately worth your money and your time. I picked the game and expansion up for around 3-4$ and I've spent over 100 hours in the normal game and many many more in the Spidermod version.

If you're starting in the game and are clueless on what to do, I reccomend you to watch Bisnap's videos on youtube, he knows a lot about the game!

+ Endless replayability, every game is different in every way
+ Endless array of items to pick up
+ The controversial religious theme is a breath of fresh air
+ Freakishly awesome enemies and art design
+ Absolutely addicting, worse than dope

- After a while playing, it gets terribly slow on later levels (blame Flash)
- Can be frustratingly, controller-smashing-onto-a-wall difficult

The game is brilliant (and sooo addictive)! One of the best indie games ever. It is interesting, hard, it has exellent dark humor and atmosphere is epic. It is the game you should take with you to a Desert Island. First you will die a lot, but then (if you are curious enough and tenacious) you'll know tricks and secrets, learn every combination and manage to do crazy amazing stuff. Music is great, very catchy and suitable, the graphics - cute and old-school.

PS Mom! I love you mom, I still do :( I will go to the basement, I will meet my inner demons, fight them and win! And you will be proud, right?
Or maybe I'll just play with some dead things (that you threw there), get parasites, decide that I am a cat and can fly and kill you, being one happy and absolutely crazy boy! XoXo Isaac
