Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ [SWITCH XCI]
Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ is a game old-school Nintendo would have never allowed on its home consoles, as was the case until its stance softened with a previous iteration on Wii U and New 3DS; the Switch, ultimately, feels like a perfect fit for Afterbirth+. It’s a game you can pick up and play for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, you can jot down or screenshot your favourite seeds, there are daily challenges, the ability to play in any of the Switch’s control configurations and also couch co-op. These features make this a great title for those looking for something a little more portable to add to their Switch lineup, while it naturally also works well enough when played on the TV.In The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ you play as the titular character, a little boy who seems terrified of his deeply religious mother. There are deep religious overtones throughout the game, most enemies are demonic in nature, characters are mostly biblical references and one of the game’s many bosses is even named Mega Satan. Though the game uses religion as a plot device much of the story is intentionally left open to interpretation, but make no mistake, reader, the subject matter is dark indeed.
While Nintendo has definitely changed its stance in the last few decades, this game feels like a blend of old-school mechanics and new-age thinking; it’s an homage to the challenge and style of old games, while simultaneously presenting itself stylistically as being something more contemporary. If you’re looking for a game that will be different each time you play it, look no further.
