The game is influenced by The Legend Of Zelda, so play the top down games in the series if you haven't already, which include :

and since it's also a rogue like, check out Dungeons of Dredmor.

There is also an expansion coming out late April so that should add a lot of hours to your game time.

Thanks fo the fast answer.

I know Zelda. I played it a few times but it was not so funny for me.

Dungeons of Dredmor is looking good. I will try it.

But doesn´t exist any game who is like Isaac? With random rooms, items, enemies and so on.

And it should be for the Pc.

And sorry for my english, I´m german :D

The type of games you're looking for are roguelikes. Dungeons of Dredmor is a great example seeing that is available on Steam.

Given the the mechanics of the genre, it does not lend to mass audience appeal. You'll have to dig for them.

I have learned of a few from listening to roguelikeradio, like Cataclysm and Infra Arcana. The podcast can be found on http://roguelikeradio.blogspot.com/

@raphgge: Dungeons of Dredmor is a game with random items, rooms and enemies just like The Binding of Isaac. Like @GeneralZod37: said, you are looking for rogue likes, which there are quite a few of you could try but Dungeons of Dredmor is the most new player friendly.

@GeneralZod37: What this man said.

Unfortunately, though, if you're looking for another game with action similar to Isaac you will probably not find very many since most roguelikes are turn based. If that doesn't bother you Dungeons of Dredmor (and the expansion for it) is a good choice.

@James_Giant_Peach: Awesome game, although I think it's totally different from BoI. It's a rogue like RPG game, but BoI is more likely a shooter game.

@raphgge: You can try Arcuz 2 It's an ARPG flash game.
