    Loving it so far, my only request is maybe tone down the move sensitivity or add some sort of slider for it. Otherwise this a 5/5 port but 4/5* controls.

    Edit: After a few runs I've gotten used to the touch controls now. :p

    I'm currently playing it on IOS 9.3.2
    I had to purchase it using my gf iPhone which is IOS 10
    so when I logged into my phone it prompted me to download the older version

    It runs good on my iPhone 5s!

    If there was ever a reason to buy a controller people! You want good controls? You know what to do!

    Or you can buy through iTunes and then go to the app store through the device and download the previous version from there ;)

    How does this compare to Neon Chrome, Towelfight 2 or other dual stick shooters? Specially from the controls and randomness point of view. I've seen many videos of the game, but never got to play it. From what I read, touch controls in BoI are a bit on the ultra sensible side, but there seems to be multiple game endings. How do you get to one ending or another? Is it according to the randomness of the game you get to play, or by following different paths during gameplay?

    I think I'm going to find some 3DS reviews while I wait for TA to review it.

    Pre-release: WHERE THE HELL IS ISAAC?!?! SCREW YOU NICALIS/ED/TYRONE...RELEASE THIS SHIT ALREADY BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH~!!1!!!

    Post-release: FIFTEEN DOLLARS!?!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!?

    I love mobile gaming. :)

    Also, is Isaac why TA's not been working for me for a couple of hours? It finally worked and I almost had a heart attack seeing BoI released.

    I took the plunge and got it. It plays better than I thought it would. Yes. The controls are a bit floaty, but you get used to it fairly quickly. One minor bug I've noticed, if you're playing in landscape, when you reach the boss, Isaac's name is chopped off. Haven't noticed anything beyond that. Thanks.

    Needs a battery saver mode. Maybe an option to lower fps?

    Any settings I can tweak for better battery? Already turned off active cam as I'm guessing that would help.

    Apologies if I missed this but does the game have Game Center support and cloud saving?

    10/10 effort, IMO. The controls, to me, are buttery smooth and not a single bit sensitive. Portrait mode's a little...tight...on SE, but that was to be expected. Still, its inclusion is priceless and more games need to offer the option. Also, it might take a single toggle in the options menu to turn on the prologue, but I can't stress how incredible it is to have Isaac untouched on iOS. Can't recommend this enough and would pay double the price for it.

    It doesn't show.

    Edit: my mistake. It is before the "New Game" selection.

    Looks great but it's 1800 yeh here in Japan, that's more than I have and I'll have to wait. If it's really the best twin shooter then I'll get it but I want to make sure I won't regret.

    After playing a bit more, I've definitely gotten used to the controls. A sensitivity slider would still be helpful, but the controls as is are really well done. Also, Aim Lock is actually a really cool feature, it's really helpful for adjusting to a touch screen.

    As for the price, I understand where some people are coming from, but if you enjoy twin stick shooters, this is worth every penny. If you're into these kinds of games, you can easily end up putting hundreds of hours into BOI.

    I still can't believe we actually got this on iOS, fully featured with no comprimises (besides controls, which is negligible). I hope this does well, because I'd love to see the two DLCs implemented as well.

    Now, back to more Isaac :p

    Any news will nicalis release the dlcs?
    And can anyone give an in depth impression about the control?
    Already own this on steam and 3ds and kinda hesitating to dip again because of the control....

    I read the PC reviews, love the idea of multiple endings and multiple characters to play with, and now you say that on the SE it plays buttery smooth... Sold! :) Thanks MC.
