The latest expansion for The Binding of Isaac, Afterbirth+, may have just released on PC, but that doesn’t mean mobile users are going to be left in the cold. The original remake, Rebirth, is now available for purchase on the App Store. While it may be a little sad that the first expansion isn’t included, it’s not like Rebirth is starved for content.
This release has support for Bluetooth controllers and cloud saves, which should be nice for people who have the entire family of Apple products. Getting to play this at work, then going home and transferring the save to an Apple TV before picking it back up on the iPad in bed sounds like some space-age kind of thing, but thus is the world we live in.
I’m not sure the game is going to sell well on mobile devices, seeing as how it is priced at $14.99. I like that Nicalis isn’t devaluing the other versions, but Nintendo had a tough sell with an original Mario game on iOS at $9.99. The Binding of Isaac has been out for a little over two years now, so most people who were interested have played it in some form.
