First released version.
Controls hard to use
I would have given this a 5 out of 5 stars, but the controls make this extremely difficult to not get hit. There is almost no space between walking and running, and, this is gonna seem strange to say, the controls are TO fluent. In other words, the small circle that appears as a joystick will actually follow your finger if you move your thumb out of the circle for the joystick. This may seem like a good concept, but think about it. Does the place where the joystick on a controller move with the joystick? No. The only thing that moves is the joystick. Same thing with keyboards. The entire keyboard does not move when you press the up key. Not only that, but the circles that appear for the joysticks to move around in are far, FAR to small. It is extremely easy to accidentally bump into an enemy because you moved your finger a just a hair to far in that direction. And if you've ever played Binding of Isaac on PC or Console, you know that bumping into enemies is a bad thing.
I request that these two things are fixed, because I can not play the game without lifting up both my thumbs and placing them down again every time I shoot, because it's far to difficult to shoot while moving. And that is not good.
Fix these things, and I will change this rating.
I love it! iOS Isaac has finally arrived! It's not everything I wanted but it is still incredibly fun.
iOS rebirth is everything you'd expect from the game plus they've added portrait mode and they've tweaked the hud to work with fingers. The game looks amazing and plays very well, without stuttering or any hitches on my iphone 7.
The default touch movement controls leave a bit to be desired though, as they are they feel a bit floaty and weird. I find rooms that require lots of dodging and maneuverability to be incredibly harder with the touch controls then if I was playing on a controller. However the game does have controller support which really should be the way this game is played. The game currently comes with 2 touch modes, but I've yet to find the difference between the two.. The controls aren't terrible though, I did happen to get within 3 hits of killing mom on my very first run (so sad) with 0 damage ups and 1 tears up. No doubt, the game is playable without a Bluetooth controller. If you were to play with a controller, I'd says this game would be perfect :).
Don't be dissuaded by the price; it's well worth it
Between the original PC version and this version, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth has provided me with more than 300 hours of entertainment. It's a fantastic game with immense depth and variety, and is more than worth the 15 dollar price tag. Honestly, it's almost stealing at that price. For veteran players, this is a great port, offering all the same content as the PC version at a smooth 60 fps. It's not diluted or censored for a mobile audience, and the controls and UI are fantastically adapted to mobile gameplay, with a few control settings to choose from as well as a portrait mode. I would definitely recommend this game to anyone, whether an existing Isaac can looking to take the game with them on the go, or to new players looking for a deep and challenging game that makes mobile gaming with your attention. My only complaint is that the movement is a bit too sensitive, and with a high speed stat, maneuvering through tight areas can be tough.
