    After I got Golden God, I don't feel like playing it as often. Hopefully Wrath of Lamb fixes this.

    Had the worst run as Eve ever. Had a golden chest, blue rock, and a key hidden behind some rocks. No bombs. I get one bomb, and find a pill. Hoping for my luck on the pill, I head to the room with that stuff and use it, hoping for Explosive Diarrhea, k? Nope, Bombs are key. I go to the treasure room, after much disappointment, and.... Spelunkers hat.

    Flash is a massive limitation, really. Performance issues, no gamepad support and you can't do neat stuff like replays.

    Why am I thinking something like that would be a mix of Meat Boy's platforming with crazy-hard Contra-style gameplay?

    Using the D6 feels like cheating (if you're lucky)! :)

    Saw this on the wiki
    "The A Dollar and Blood Bag rewards can be "rolled" with the D6."
    How?

    Edited:

    Also if possible, any other tips for the d6?

    I love the guppy exploit, only managed to pull it off twice so far. Got it with morbo 2, but for some reason it didn't make me re-fight him each time. Did the cut scene, then just gave me an item.

    I got greedy though, and it gave me a space bar item on top of some really great shit, so if i tried to grab the items it would only take that instead and keep switching it back and forth with my D6. Fucking SUCKED. Rolling just gave me another space bar item, and ruined all the good items underneath as insult to injury.

    The Dice, a spacebar item that lets you reroll other items to replace it with another.

    The items replaced with the D6 are actually "better" in a way that a bad item won't spawn, right? As in it will almost be a guaranteed good drop? And oh man I'm a fucking beast, just played it again and beat sheoul with Isaac now. 2 Runs, 2 sheouls, feels good man, finished satan with 1 motherfucking heart.

    No, what the D6 replaces the item with is totally random. Can even be the same item it was before. Especially if it's a room where only one kind of item can be dropped, like the cube of meat after fighting war (iirc). Certain rooms have certain things they can only drop, D6 will rotate between those (satan rooms, hidden rooms, etc)

    Deck of cards if you have high damage, Belial if you have low damage.

    I died to Satan for my fifth time. The first and second forms are no problem, but I always die in his third form because those explosive snakes come out of fucking NOWHERE and I'm always running into them, no matter what items I have. Even if I kill some off, he just spawns them right back...
