Discussed on page 4 of this article but the rest is a very good read and helpful in understanding why certain things about this game are the way that they are.


Unfortunately, the remake is being made by Nicalis, which means it will be buggier than the flash version ever was.

Haven't seen any problems with the Cave Story or VVVVVV jobs they did. >_>

I'm guessing you didn't buy the Binding of Isaac at launch either, because otherwise the irony might be a little too painful to bear.

Oh wait, the creator specifically talked about how terrible the launch was. In the link you posted.

Bought it yesterday on the steam sales, it's brilliantly addictive. Every descent into the basement seems to uncover some weird new feature, I still have no idea what the cards do for example.

I just hope it still feels like the original Binding of Isaac...

Depends which ones. The Tarot cards all have unique single-use effects. Fine if the most useful:

The Stars warps you into an item room (no key needed)
The Emperor warps you straight into the boss room.
The Hermit warps you straight into shop room (no key needed)
The Joker warps you to Devil room

The playing cards effectively double one item slot; 2 of Spades doubles your keys, clubs doubles your bombs, and diamond foibles your money. Hearts refills half your empty containers, and is generally not very useful.

The Ace of Spades is a held item that increases the drop rate of carc items.
