This kinda explains why I cant get much farther than the depths. My Isaac never gets many upgrades/items. Everyone who gets far has a waaayy crazier looking Isaac than mine ever gets.

  • Make it a priority to open gold doors. These rooms always have special items.
  • Check in arenas, there's occasionally syringes or other items.
  • Look for secret areas - they usually contain money and sometimes items. They're usually found in empty areas on the map surrounded by a few other rooms.
  • Use slot machines and give money to beggars, you can get a lot of good stuff that way. Beggars can really give you some amazing stuff if you give them enough money.
  • You can get some good stuff by killing minibosses.
  • Sometimes it can be worth selling your hearts for items. Personally, I think it's worth it for the shovel, laser eye and Necronomicon.

Also, I just beat the womb ^__^
 They call me Maggie - Maggie "the Womb Killa".
wtf how did you get Steven.
D: I've gotten him 3 times already, usually from actually beating Steven himself...uh...themselves...  Also, he's really helpful - he shoots magic tears :o
I still have yet to find any of the secret bosses from past McMillen games.
 
The closest I've come is finally constructing Meat Boy.

@LordXavierBritish: Meat Boy is a boss in this game? O_O

Yeah, this is mostly common sense stuff that I've done, but I just don't get a beefed up Issac. I usually only end up getting 2-3 upgrades. I find a lot of items(spacebar), but you can only carry one of those at a time. Once I had 25-ish coins and I never got a key to open a door. Just general bad luck stuff. I've never gotten anything from a beggar though. The most I gave to one was 10 and nothing ever happened, so I stopped using them my last couple play throughs. I guess I can try again, it just doesn't seem very profitable seeing as how I have probably given them 20+ coins and have gotten nothing.

I guess I'll have to buy Binding Of Isaac now, then.

Trust me beggars can be worth it, you can sometimes get extra heart containers from them. Also, slot machines can occasionally give out $1 notes. 
 
Anyway, just remember that there's a lot of randomised stuff in the game, so even if one playthrough suck, then the next playthrough could be amazing. Also, have you unlocked any other characters yet?

Took me all the way. What you don't see is the vampire bat. That is the greatest upgrade in the game. The unicorn horn plus the battery is a close second.

this is how messed up my Isaac got.

When I missed the eye my Isaac looked much worse.

Just wanted to post my posse.

The Book of Revelations combined with The Relic makes you damn near unkillable. And Meat Boy is the motherfucking champ. He runs after enemies and causes contact damage, and he just stands on stationary enemies until they die.

Updating this post as I get more screenshots

1st win Cain
4th win Magdalene
5th win Cain
6th win Judas, glad the game gets harder after 6 'cus this run was way too easy
7th win Cain, double lasers from the eye and the robo baby was awesome
In the same run as above; I got really screwed up by using a Gamekid on the final boss
8th win Cain, magic mushroom made me big and the first time I got the freaky Steven thing on my head
9th win Cain
10th win Cain; this one was pretty rough, not many good items (floating head thing was fun though)
11th win with ???; this one took like 10 tries until I got the "nail"

#62 Posted by ADAMWD (587 posts) -

By far the largest Isaac I've gotten.

#63 Posted by Gnomicidal (92 posts) -

My Maggie on the first play through that I beat Mom. Had insane good items. Laser eye, increased damaged x3, see through walls, etc etc.

Roided crazy eyes kinda freaked me out:

Cain seems pretty angry; I guess he really took his mother's actions to heart.
#69 Posted by BinaryDragon (638 posts) -

just beat mom, this is what I looked like. I also had that little guy with homing bullets he was cool, poison touch. Lasted with two/three hearts. :D

This is how I looked as Isaac when I was in D8 - Womb 2.
#73 Posted by Winternet (8018 posts) -

Me before facing Satan. Wanna guess how that went?

#74 Edited by Althox (293 posts) -
D8

I almost regret not taking a picture of the Maggy I had this morning. Made it all the way to womb mother and the only upgrades I had were HP increasing ones. Outside of a brother bobby I got I did not get a single damage, range, or speed increasing item. It was brutal, my fight with the Monstoro 2 took like 5 minutes.  
 
As much as I absolutely love this game luck can bite your ass a lot.

At the end of the game... Cain the brown.
#77 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -
I still don't know what this "Pretty Fly" does, but it's pretty. 
#78 Posted by rockyhorrorgerri (373 posts) -

Pretty excited I almost got 2 meat boys in 1 play thru.

#79 Posted by rockyhorrorgerri (373 posts) -

Maggy :D

@rockyhorrorgerri: What?! I did not know this was possible. I think i have a new mission *shifty eyes*
 
How in the world did you get 6 cubes of meat?
 
Is this post or pre DLC?

Post DLC but no I haven't looked at the mission list yet let alone try any. Seemed like every room I went in had a cube of meat.
