Binding of Isaac: Rebirth won’t be coming to Apple store because of “violence against children” | The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

The popular indie game, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, won’t be coming to iPad or iPhone anytime soon as Apple claims that the abuse of children violates their submission policies

For the last few days, Tyrone Rodriguez – developer of The Binding of Isaac, has been releasing teasers of an upcoming version of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth for the iOS. On February 4th, Tyrone posted a picture of the game being played on an iPad. However, on February 6th, Tyrone posted the following tweet on Twitter:

C’mon, wtf… Apple pic.twitter.com/aEygkjqH2b

Much to the dismay of The Binding of Isaac fans, the game will not be coming to iOS as originally planned. Needless to say, Tyrone was quite upset by the Apple Review statement. Fans of the game also began replying to his tweet with images of other games that depicted violence against children (some more amusing than others).

This eventually came full circle with Tyrone posting about another game that depicts violence against children.

It’s certainly arguable that The Binding of Isaac is a lot more violent towards the game’s protagonist than Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead: Season Two. Nevertheless, it is certainly disappointing that the game was prevented from coming to the App Store considering it has been released on nearly every single gaming platform except for iOS.

What do you guys think about this decision by Apple? Would you have bought yet another copy of The Binding of Isaac if it were released on iOS? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below!

    Does anybody else find it odd that in the section titled “WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DO THERE?” all they talk about is more landing mechanics? That doesn’t actually a1wer the most crucial question I have about Horizo1 — what gameplay elements is it adding? Is it literally just visual? What is the point of landing?nThe problem with Elite: Dangerous currently is the lack of depth or meaningful progress. The reluctance to elaborate on the gameplay mechanics of Horizo1 is troubling. This article makes it sound like the only gameplay Horizo1 offe1 is yet another challenging way to land your ship.

    I will win a Battlefield Heroes Item because I love to get my hands on new toys to own the competition.
