The Binding of Isaac Prequel The Legend of Bum-Bo Is Out Now on Android

The Legend of Bum-Bo, last year’s prequel to Edmund McMillen’s The Binding of Isaac, is out now on the Google Play Store for a mildly eye-watering $14.99.

Originally released on PC, The Legend of Bum-bo is a turn-based roguelike deck-builder incorporating elements of several different genres. It sees you playing as the titular Bum-bo, a happy vagrant whose money is stolen by a mysterious figure who promptly vanishes down a hole.

Bum-bo obviously has no choice but to pursue the thief, fighting through waves of enemies and bosses in the process. There are more than a hundred different items to collect, modify, and upgrade, plus 80+ trinkets that impart special abilities.

While we’re talking numbers, there are ten bosses, 30 enemies, four playable characters, “loads” of unlockables. There are multiple endings, too, each of which reveals a bit more of the story.

You can download The Legend of Bum-Bo on the Google Play Store right now. Reviews are mixed, though, so you might want to do a bit of research before laying down any dough.
