The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is an earlier version of the series, which has seen updates to Afterbirth and Afterbirth+ on PC and console. Just getting the game in this form on mobile is a momentous occasion, considering the game was rejected at one point in the past by Apple. We can hope for future versions of the game to hit mobile, but for now, this Edmund McMillen roguelike is finally playable in all its glory on the phone. There’s no mobile version discount here, but the port is rather fully-featured, so you should get your money’s worth. Check out the game’s forum thread, which is sure to blow up.
