Ratings and Reviews
I always knew that this game was amazing and I bought a 3ds mainly to play this game. I ended up selling my ds later on and I always thought that this game was perfect on a handheld device because of how easy it is to run and because of its quick paced nature. The port is incredibly easy to use and is the same thing as on the ds or computer (when talking about the menu ui). This game has all of the items from the computer version and I'm hoping they will continue to add the dlc from the computer which I'm sure they will because of how much praise this app is getting. I hadn't even read anything on this app before I bought it. The second I saw it i dropped $15 because I knew that it would be worth it. This is a great game with great devs and I know that they care about the community and will continue to refine this game. Since it just came out the movement is a little hard but I'm sure I'll get used to it. I just wish you could adjust where the little joysticks are because I have big fingers and would like them to be a little farther away because on portrait mode it's hard for me. The portrait mode made me really excited because it felt like the ds and was incredibly clean and easy to look at. However because I have an IPhone SE which is basically the size of the 5, my fingers often bump into each other while playing which is a big problem. This game is however I think to be one of the best games the App Store has to offer and it was 100% worth the money.
I love it! iOS Isaac has finally arrived! It's not everything I wanted but it is still incredibly fun.
iOS rebirth is everything you'd expect from the game plus they've added portrait mode and they've tweaked the hud to work with fingers. The game looks amazing and plays very well, without stuttering or any hitches on my iphone 7.
The default touch movement controls leave a bit to be desired though, as they are they feel a bit floaty and weird. I find rooms that require lots of dodging and maneuverability to be incredibly harder with the touch controls then if I was playing on a controller. However the game does have controller support which really should be the way this game is played. The game currently comes with 2 touch modes, but I've yet to find the difference between the two.. The controls aren't terrible though, I did happen to get within 3 hits of killing mom on my very first run (so sad) with 0 damage ups and 1 tears up. No doubt, the game is playable without a Bluetooth controller. If you were to play with a controller, I'd says this game would be perfect :).
COULD be a great port, BUT
You know, I’ve played the snot out of this game on PC/Mac. I’ve watched countless hours of The Adventures of Northernegg. I love Isaac. My primary computer is also an iPad Pro (GASP!!!). I’ve been using an iPad at least as a primary mobile computer since 2013, and I’ve never used an iPad without a keyboard. I know that I’m not the only one, especially with Apple marketing the Smart Keyboard accessory so much these days. The keyboard controls for Isaac on Windows and Mac are great, so why is it so hard to have keyboards supported for input on this version? My only guess is that Nicalis very obviously was dismissive of porting the game to *mobile* (read: phones) and just phoned in the port. That would also explain why there have been zero updates to this version of the game. No ability to access Afterbirth/AB+ content.
Yet, everything else here seems fine in terms of performance/stability (can’t know that very well though because I can’t get through a complete game with the crappy touch controls). Simply adding keyboard support and access to the expansions as in-app purchases would put this port on par with the desktop versions of the game and it’s incredibly frustrating that the publisher doesn’t seem to care. At least we have controller support, but even that’s very small consolation considering that nobody actually wants to go out and spend 50 bucks on an MFi controller.
