The Binding of Isaac game

From the creator of Super Meat Boy and Braid comes an odd interpretation of an old bible story and a Zelda dungeon crawler.

You are Isaac a child who runs away from his mother since she is trying to kill him, because you know, God told her so.

Isaac has to explore his basement in order to find items to help him fight off bosses, enemies and finally his own mother. Now this sounds like it can get boring fast but the amount of items that you can get combined with the fact that each level is randomly generated makes this game infinitely playable. After going through it a few times new items are unlocked as well as new characters which makes you come back for more.

The game does slow down if there are too many enemies on the screen at once but the over all game play is solid. Over all, for $5 this game is a steal and everyone who has ever played a Zelda game should give it a shot.

How it was taste: On my gaming PC.

Rating: 8/10 Great

Super Meat Boy Super Meat Boy
Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as an
animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend
(who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux.

Braid Braid
Braid treats your time and attention as precious; there is no
filler in this game. Every puzzle shows you something new
and interesting about the game world.
