Bind­ing of Isaac: A er­birth +

Hyper - - FEATURE -

Bind­ing of Isaac: After­birth + is a twin stick, rogue-like arena shooter that is dis­turb­ing and gross in equal mea­sure. This ver­sion of the game fea­tures all the DLC, plus ex­tras from the ver­sions re­leased be­fore it. The game is loosely based around a story from the He­brew bi­ble. In the bib­li­cal nar­ra­tive Abra­ham is asked by God to sac­ri­fice his son, Isaac, in or­der to prove his de­vo­tion and fear of God. All of the im­agery in the game is con­jured up from the young boy’s imag­i­na­tion and while it is child­like and at times puerile, it is pow­er­ful when viewed from a shel­tered child’s view of the world. There are thou­sands of power up items and vari­ables to be tin­kered with on your jour­ney; for hard­core com­ple­tion­ists this game is a real chal­lenge and the con­trols trans­late very well to the switch.
