Oh, what am I saying; of course you don't.

My friend showed me the game originally and I thought it looked terrible. I had personal vendetta against it. He wouldn't shut up about though, and I ended up trying it out after getting it in Humble Bundle 7.

Well I got hooked. I still think the art style is kind of bad, but the gameplay is so good, and the amount of variables in any given playthrough makes me giddy. I beat Mom for the first time last December and for the entire month of January it was pretty much the only game I played. I put 86 hours into it and got all the achievements, and I can't wait for Rebirth.

As far as the Zelda comparisons go, other than it being an action game and the dungeon layout approximating Zelda 1 in looks, it has little in common with the series.

Even though it's so cheap, I think I'm going to pass and will continue to pass into the foreseeable future. This is for a number of reasons...

1.) Looks like a flash game... they could have tried harder I feel
2.) Horrible artstyle... just gross-looking and I see no point in it
3.) Doesn't look fun at all. There are lots of fun Roguelikes, this one just looks like it wouldn't feel good to play. It's too floaty and things move too slowly. It reminds me of Alien Homonid. I remember being really disappointed with that game not because it was necessarily "bad" as that it just didn't "feel" good to play.

I play Alien Homonid and I think "boy, I wish this was Metal Slug." I think I'd play Binding of Isaac and think "boy I wish this was Robotron/Zelda/whatever"

It's a pretty terrible game.


It's only as good as you are.

The art style IS ugly. But if you can look past that, TBoI one of the most replayable games I've ever had the pleasure of playing. Super fun with a ton of variety. It's a must-play for any indie game fan.

I agree that it's better suited for handhelds though.

1. it IS a flash game
2. well its a matter of what you prefer I like it
3. I think it is fun it is certainly one of the easier ones to get into.

Not mention the horrible control system they have for it.
