Watch The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Co-op Gameplay

By   /   Aug 20, 2014

Edmund McMillen, creator of Super Meat Boy and facial hair enthusiast, has released a new clip for The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. It shows off about 5 minutes of gameplay in cooperative mode.

In this playthrough, the developer takes a look at the game’s challenges, namely the Head Trauma one that scatters tear projectiles and makes those bullets weak. There will be twenty challenges in the full title.

One character plays with Isaac, while the other uses Troll Baby. The latter character can fly over obstacles, but randomly drops Troll bombs that can blow up quickly.

Isaac has a rock that replaces tears floating around with pebbles. These little rocks, when combined with an iron bar, do concussive damage that confuses opponents.

Another cosmetic novelty in The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a slow walk option. Since the game is being built with analog controls in mind, it’s now possible to apply force to movement.

There are new boss fights in the roguelike. In this playthrough, there’s a confrontation with Dingle, a literally piece of crap that spits out additional, smaller poops. Bosses are still quite hard.

In cooperative mode, your co-op partner will spawn a random Baby character. Naturally, these will have their own characteristics, like Troll Baby has bombs.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is a remake of a flash game once made by McMillen in a rush. While not expecting a lot from the odd and disturbing game, the internet took to it in masses, leading to a full redo to do it justice.
