The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth App Reviews

iPhone X.

It needs an update for the iPhone X.

iPhone X Aspect Ratio

This game is amazing and I have played it for Isaac knows how long. But it’s a bit wonky on the iPhone X, still definitely worth the $15 but that would be a tremendous upgrade, keep up the good work!

Needs Afterbirth

I’d pay extra for that. Pretty much completed everything in this base version and want more. Also I don’t get what people are talking about with the controls, they work great and it is easier to play on mobile then pc.


Please please please update for iPhone X screen support! THis is like my all time favorite game and having the use of the full screen would be EXCELLENTE! Otherwise, 5 stars!

I cannot play this game

Endless loading when i selected the charecter and pushed the start button. Maybe game crashed with korean language pack. Please update the game for korean user.

Even better than I expected

THIS IS FANTASTIC. This game should be worth more than it is. This game is just so fantastic I was completely distracted on what was around me. Only one little problem. It took 5 hours to download.but all in all this game is worth more than it really is!

Great Game

iPhone X support please!!!


I highly recommend this game because of its rich content and hours of enjoyment but when will the dlcs be added?

Love it, would like DLC

I bought this as soon as I saw it considering I have 200+ hours on Steam. This game is honestly one of the best games I’ve ever played! I would like for Afterbirth and Afterbirth+ DLC to be added sometime in the future. Another thing that would be cool is like Afterbirth + if we could somehow introduce mods, now I understand that would be complicated but just an idea. Overall this is my favorite game ever it’s totally worth the money and recommend it to everyone.

This is great

I can finally play issac on mobile but can we get an update? Possibly afterbirth or afterbirth+? Rebirth on mobile feels buggy and would like to see a reset button and a way to swap cards or pills if we have the items to do so.

Worth it

I’ve watched a lot of play throughs and commentaries of this game simply because my favorite YouTube’s play it. It’s good to finally get my hands on it and it’s convenient, the game handles very well doesn’t lag of bug out, but the screen gets very busy at times especially with the joysticks and the held item slot with the bomb and what not. I hope the new content gets released, afterbirth would be a great investment and keep me hooked in

Afterbirth Please!

Please, Add Afterbirth, This Is An Amazing Game, But Please Add Afterbirth!

Great Game. Is there ever gonna be another update for it?

Read title.

Must have

This is the first game I have spent this much on and it's worth it. Please add the dlc content for iPhone X price is not an issue. Please. Please. Please!!!

Love it but not support iPhone X screen

Got both on PC and phone unfortunately it’s not full screen on the iPhone X will you guys come out with the update for that soon please ?


Me encanta el juego y de todo perfecto

Don't get discouraged at first!

After I got over the initial shock and disappointment at the perceived difficulty of the game, I realized I'd found my favorite game of all time! Don't get discouraged at dying a lot. Consider it training to make you a better player! Couple with a SteelSeries Nimbus and you have gaming bliss!

Capable for expansion

Rebirth is good and all, but BoI on mobile can be capable of doing afterbirth with little to no hiccups. It would be awesome if we were able to fight delirium, hush, or (more painfully) ultra greed. Who knows, we’ll might be able to play it this year (2018). I sure hope so since it would amp up the challenge in a fun, more enticing way. I acquired all of the endings and even obtained godhead, but I want to test my mettle on the TRUE final boss and in greed mode.


The game is just amazing 1000/10

This is great but would be better with dlc

I love the console and pc versions but always wanted a great time killer that i can carry this allows me to play the game i love whenever and wherever i want. There are a few glitches but i haven't ran into anything game breaking they are mostly visual. I think the developers need to add the afterbirth and afterbirth plus

Minor Bug

After completing a run in which you unlock something due to the run being completed, the app force closes (doesn’t happen when cutscenes play, but automatically kicks you to the title screen after cutscene). Not a huge deal, but it does make keeping track of unlocks difficult. Otherwise, the game is perfectly ported. I look forward to the addition of the DLC, even if I have to spring $15 for them (Afterbirth+ would be awesome but I’m mostly concerned with Afterbirth).


So a few things. Flawless. The 1 flaw. No run ReRoll button

One somewhat major problem

I LOVE this game. Have never had a PC so I never could play until this port. But the one thing I CANT stand and has lost me multiple runs, is the fact that occasionally(at least once a run to me, if not more) when you press the fire side of the screen, your character will move full speed in that direction instead of shooting. And it doesn't always fix when you lift your fingers off the screen. Other than that I LOVE it.

iPhone X screen compatibility

Great game. Would love to play it full screen on my iPhone X. I hope to see that in an update soon

X (iOS 11.x)

CURRENTLY UNPLAYABLE ON IPHONE X DUE TO (EXTREMELY SMALL) SIZE AND ORIENTATION OF TOUCH CONTROLS. DEVELOPER HAS BEEN UNRESPONSIVE ON TWITTER AND THERE DOESN’T APPEAR TO BE A WAY TO CONTACT THEM DIRECTLY FOR ANSWERS. Thank you, Nicalis, for your work on this title. I knew absolutely nothing about BoI until it was previously rejected by Apple, as iOS has become my primary (and sole, for all intents and purposes) gaming platform. And this despite having an old PSP (for FF I-IX) and MacBook Pro (X-COM, FTL, Civ, Desktop Dungeons, and Crypt of the Necrodancer), though I admit to being a bit of a dilettante. In each case, with the exception of DD, the initial purchase was on iOS and the vast majority of time spent has been on iOS. The Steam purchases have been placeholders for the most part given the convenience of mobile gaming. My interest in gaming—long-dormant until iPhones came along—has been influenced strongly by the access afforded iOS users. My interest in BoI was similarly inspired but by one of the more undesirable aspects of the platform's limitations. Of course, that interest took on a fever pitch once news that BoI had been approved by Apple began to circulate. It became a bit of an obsession that has compelled me to (1) comb through Twitter feeds, subreddits, forums and the like for information regarding its release, and (2) spend a little time watching Let's Play videos on YouTube. Now it's my turn! Good luck with the release. I hope that your iOS reception and experience proves worth the wait and that you and your team will continue to support the title and platform going forward.

Love the game but...

The game itself is amazing and a great transition to mobile but the most dangerous enemy is the buggy twin stick controls. On occasion the stick used for shooting will suddenly control my character sending him flying into a group of enemies.

Best game for iPhone! Well worth the money

We got this back September 2017 and as of March 2018 I’m still playing it almost daily! I’ve only beaten it 3 times and still unlocking things. The story line is a little sad but I don’t play it for the story line so I don’t really care. I love how it’s not always the same lay out or combo of items etc. best game I’ve ever played on my phone!!! I don’t love it on my iPad but that’s just cuz it’s harder for me to hold with small hands as well as on iPad Pro. Great game

I love this Game!!!

I can drop hours on this game finding new power up combos! So happy it’s out for iPhone. But one minor suggestion, can you guys please add a Dpad for the controller please?....also the other versions thank you!! ^~^

What I expected and what I got

I got this game thinking it would try to be as identical as possible as the PC version. Some differences I noticed, however, make it disappointing: -Either enemies are tankier or damage upgrades are not as powerful. This is most obvious with Polyphemus, where your tear rate seems to be slower, but not as slow as the PC version, and the damage is hilariously weak. When you find it, it’s more of “Oh, Polyphemus” and not “Holy heck, Polyphemus! This saved my run!” -The stat menu is unreliable. You can test this for yourself on the challenge “Darkness Falls.” The damage stat will not update itself for a little bit. -Red chest loots seems to be 95% bombs and 5% teleports to the Devil room. -Flies seem to stick to you and will only attack when you are right next to an enemy. -Game crashes every time you complete a challenge. It counts as completing it, but it’s annoying to have to reopen the game. -Small rock cannot be unlocked. I counted how many tinted rocks I destroyed. After 231 destroyed tinted rocks, I can safely say that it is impossible to unlock in the mobile version. -Movement stick will randomly make me move right, inevitably causing me to take damage. My biggest grievance is the fact that it’s been a year and Afterbirth has not been released. I get it that it takes work to port a game, but you’re done with Afterbirth+. You should have enough time to work on the port: 2/5 until they fix these issues.

I m Cnina


Game mechanics

You need to fix the Motion Control. Sticks sometime. And to sensitive. But all in all I love the game

Not a cheap port

The game runs good and is exactly like the pc version but with tiny flaw. First theirs no way to swap pills/cards and the controls glitches for a bit, but other than that, it’s a great game. But now I want the DLC, because I’m a Real Platinum God and I want more new challenges. Afterbirth plz, but no +

I hope developers see this.

In Korean language, we can’t play the game. Choose the character, loading, the devices got extremely hot, and boom. Crashed. It’s have been too long time, but still doesn’t patched yet. I hope you to make the change language settings or bug patch something. I’m waiting till I can play the game. Thanks.

Appstore’s best

This game it’s excellent and for 15 dollars it’s a decent price I would love to have dlc add ons here at the AppStore to even make it better then it is, hopefully we do get it.


This game is excellent in all ways, shapes or form! No flaws, no problems!

Afterbirth please

All we need now is afterbirth. That is literally all I want. Pls


This game is amazing, creative, mind boggling, and e.t.c. and I can say with pride how there will probably not be a game I play as amazing as this, there just isn’t anything to fix, although controls over lap with each other sometimes that’s fine you just have to change the settings, but other than that this game is incredible


great game to play at school when bored as hell

Worst controls a game has ever had

Floaty joysticks leads to poor control of Isaac meaning you can’t even play the game, getting through doors is a nightmare and it requires u lifting your thumbs up every 2 seconds. Not fun at all, you need a controller, don’t buy this masterpiece of a game on mobile, get it on pc or console.

Good game with minor flaws

The Binding of Isaac is a great game. My only minor annoyances with the iOS version of the game is the lack of ability to sync saves from the Steam version of the game, and the lack of Afterbirth and Afterbirth+ content.


Cheaper and more portable than switch

My experience

The game is awesome and it runs very. Smoothly. Only problem i have is how come i can't use the keyboard keys on my portfolio to play Isaac like I'm on a computer. If you guys can get this solution, man i would appreciate it a lot.


After I bought Isaac iOS, when I clicked Start, I only got a black screen and I did not go to the next screen

Android killer

Literally made me stop using Android.


Love this game and had no idea it was coming to iOS. So surprised when I saw it. Typed in Issac to get an item app and saw the real app. Awesome. Worth 15$. Buy a controller though. This game is tough on a touch screen. I have a speedy mfi. Buy this game. I hope they plan on updating this app. Please update to fit iPhone X. And when is afterbirth coming?

Amazing port nasty bugs

Binding of Isaac is amazing, I have it on my computer as well as on my phone. The only thing holding this back from a 4 or 5 Star is the fact that there are nasty bugs. One is instead of shooting in a direction you start walking in that direction which is obviously horrible, next some items are useless because the developers forgot to add the drop trickets and pills button and forgot to add the change card button so starter deck is worthless. Next there is no dev team working on Isaac for iOS(what I heard), so none of these bugs will be fixed and there will not be the dlc’s for a long time. Finally, the game eats your battery after one run I loose about half my battery. The game itself is perfect only the bugs and no dev team holding it back.

Good but…

Great game I love it but needs update badly to allow for a controller the touch screen controls are not bad but get in the way more often than not.

wonderful game

PLEASE add afterbirth+ as an IAP I would be more than willing to buy it.

There is serious problem to play this game

This game isn’t activated while i set device’s language setting by “Korean”. When i tap “start”, some image comes out then it is frozen. This appearance has been shown to my ipad air2, iphoneX I think this problem belongs to this app Please fix this problem as soon as possible.


Binding of Isaac on mobile is a dream come true, from all of the items, to bosses, to characters, it’s almost like pc! Almost! I do have one small problem though, that isn’t enough to lower the rating, but could improve my runs if it is fixed. Every once in a while, I would go to use the tear direction button, my character would move in some direction, that was not at all intended. This HAS had some bad timing, even ending runs for me. Again, thank you for the game, it is fantastic, and deserves every bit of the five stars, but every game has its issues, which are impossible to avoid. 👌🏻
