A fun blend of puzzle and roguelike that inspires forward-thinking, but cuts your strategy short.

Bum-bo may have to deal with a lot of crap, but it’s all well worth pushing through.

After Isaac's terrifying adventure, Edmund McMillen returns with his load of genius and madness in a prequel very different from the original game.

When all is said and done though, The Legend of Bum-bo is a highly worthwhile experience. Though flawed in places, it makes good on many of its ambitions, bringing together gameplay genres and capitalizing on ideas for an experience that can enthrall longtime fans and newcomers to the Binding of Isaac universe alike.
