by Robert Workman


It’s taken quite a bit of time for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth to make its way to Apple devices, especially considering that the company has been blocking its release every chance it could get. But it looks like the time has finally arrived – you can now play Isaac on your iPad!

The game can be downloaded here, but you’d best set aside some cash to download it, as the purchase will set you back $14.99.

Apple had blocked its release earlier in the year, mainly due to the fact that the game depicted violence towards children. (It is pretty sadistic when it comes to its plot, where a mother locks a naked child in a dark place, threatening to kill him later in the name of God.) But it appears Apple finally relented and decided to give the game a chance. Now it’s just a matter of seeing how well it sells, especially for such a high price.
