An action game from Nicalis is headed to the App Store after initially being rejected by Apple. The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a remake of The Binding of Isaac, which is a biblical tale of a young boy whose mother must prove her faith to God using her son. In the original story, Isaac escapes to the basement of the family’s home where he must survive by fighting monsters in a dungeon-filled, rogue-like adventure.
According to TouchArcade, the game was rejected by Apple earlier this year due to its representation of “violence towards children.” However, a post on the Nicalis blog states that Apple has now approved the game and it is on its way to iOS.
TL;DR It’s coming to iOS VERY SOON!!!The game has been approved by Apple and we’re working on getting all the features we want into the game. Obligatory bulletpoint list: – It’s a universal binary so you buy it once for iPhone, you can download for free on iPad (and eventually Apple TV–eventually, we don’t have timing on the Apple TV version).- Nicalis Blog
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is available on other platforms such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PlayStation Vita as well as Microsoft Windows and OS X. With little to go on as far as a release timeframe for iOS, that appears to still be up in the air. But, if you are a fan of the game on another platform or are simply intrigued and want to check it out, know that it is coming, as of now anyway.
So, be sure to check back with AppAdvice for news and updates on the launch of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for iOS.
