What's New in Version 1.1
First released version.
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.
An example of what mobile games should be
I have never been a fan of rouge like games, but I thought I would give this one a try because I had heard many great things about it. I was hoping for a half decent port for mobile, and I was surprised when I found that it was almost the exact same game that's on PC. I would have gotten this game on my PC, but I figured having the portable version of this game would be better, because whenever I am bored I can just play this game. You might think that fifteen dollars is a lot for an AppStore game, but remember that you are getting the full version of the game, that is also 15 dollars on PC. So yes, this game is definitely worth the fifteen dollars. I recommend you stop looking at reviews now and just buy the game.(also game is even better if you have a controller. If you are looking for a good mobile controller, I recommend Gamevice, I have been using it and it's great)
