The Binding of Isaac

Not a real review, just some thoughts on the game "The Binding of Isaac". No spoilers here.
1. You can't save your progress. If you die, you start all over from the very beginning. It's not so bad, because it looks like there are only 5 or 6 levels. I've only been as far as the 3rd level.
2. The "teleport" item sends Isaac to a secret room not accessible otherwise. Yesterday the room held an awesome buff. Today the room held some coins... and then the game crashed. This was kind of sad because I'd previously earned an achievement, and it ended up not counting because of the crash.
It's a fun little game - good when you just need to occupy 5 or 10 minutes, because you're likely to die fairly quickly anyway. If anything else of note happens (that isn't a spoiler), I'll edit this post.
