The SPOOKING of Isaac
a crazy new challenging way to play
Created 3 years ago
Welcome to the spook. Is Isaac no longer bewilderingly overwhelming and hard as hell? Do you miss it? This might help.


  • Shuffled and randomized enemy population
  • Rooms full of TREACHEROUS TRAPS and DEADLY SWARMS
  • Adjusted gameplay curve to start fast and hard and end faster and harder
  • New rules for special rooms allow and even force you to find new ways to strategize
  • Bigger and tougher fights with all bosses
  • Plentiful tricks and treats
  • A whole new way to play the game that won't come easy


At this point, no more patches are intended except for potentially bug fixes or emergency balance adjustments. If you find any bugs, let me know. Have fun!

Delete this account. I know this guy and the only mods he talks about are nude mods for elder scrolls oblivion. He's never even played Isaac.
because keeper wasn't hard enough
Great mod! I love how it really changes up how you play and approach different aspects of the game. I've beaten it (to Mega Satan) with every character. I'm not sure if it was intended, but I usually got the key by using a sacrifice room. Still a very challenging mod and a lot of fun.
Dude, Melon... great mod, great super spoopy mod, you did well...
I recommend trying out my mod...DemonDemolisher's Mod Pack
im commenting for the coin. but the mod looks good anyway
i can download all other mods sept this one? is it afterbirth
Yo this Stuff is pretty good! damn shooting chests got me good!
Yo this Stuff is pretty good! damn shooting chests got me good!
much obliged! let it never be said that melon doesn't deliver on thrills and chills
it doesn't get spookier than this
omg, this mod has 666 downloads and 666 coins...
Right now, this mod has 666 downloads. 3Spooky5Me
I was hoping it worked on rebirth Still good though
Sorry man! Best of luck with disposable income to anybody who still needs afterbirth.
This makes the game 3 times harder its great!
this piece of shit is the biggest buzzword mod of 2016 ive never seen such a meaningless fucking description, nuclear apocalypses broke ass english has more meaning than this shit

atleast the mod is such a catastrophic trainwreck not even the creator wants to update this trash

honestly download heretic mod
I change my mind, this guy's right
Nice mod. I'm sure alot of people would like this.
This is very nice but a bit 2spooky5me
This mod is 2spoopy I cannot take it D:
...is one of the greatest video game soundtracks of all time.
while i do find the random enemy placement fun and challenging,the fact that most (if not all) the mod has set item polls is really dull and gets old after you win the run once. i love the candy sound tho! other than that theres really not much to like on this mod
Actually, there's a lot to like and it's very good.
We must all be willing to stand up to our fears and not cower behind such things
Funniest comment I've ever read right there
Sounds interesting; can't wait to try it
MUST PLAY
I Love this mod, so much in fact that i took the time to transport it to my 3ds
Finally I've made a difference in this world!
I hope you used my mod converter to ease the process ;) Nice to hear you got it running on the 3DS, the 3DS tends to be very picky with what mods it wants to work with
i really wanted to play this mod, but i couldn't get passed the first level because it crashed about a minute or 2 into the game every time. i tried with different characters and it crashed with all of them.
Sorry about that! Are you playing on a mac and are you running version 1.02 (with the single rooms folder)? If so, I might know what the problem is and be able to fix it.
yes to both of those questions, how can it be fixed?
If my guess is right, it should be fixed in this new version (1.03). If you try it again, feel free to tell me if it worked.
the new version did the trick, thanks! fun mod
Download and screenshot problems are solved. Seems like it might have been a corruption during upload.
Thanks, it works just fine now!
-Soul/Black Hearts no longer drop
-Every character starts with Dark Bum

You are evil.

EDIT: Hold that thought, I somehow just picked up a soul heart...
Yes I'm a prick, but there's also a tiny chance that you'll manage to happen upon a soul heart, so enjoy it!
I did enjoy it, and will come with some comments about it.

First of all, the whole concept with the switcharoo of enemies is great, and I like that keys have an important role. Maybe you could have bombs and coins matter more as well? I ended up with 99 of each by Depths x.

All the boss rooms are so scummy... which I adore. The plan where if you missed Boss Rush and needed the two key pieces, a brilliant plan to make you respawn as BB in The Chest and picking up Empty Vessel (even though I realised that too late, and rerolled all the items with my Dice Shard lol). I feel though that The Chest was a breeze, since all bosses in the rooms switched to mostly regular enemies. Would it be possible to have them switch into a random boss instead?

I could write more but I'll just say it was a really fun mod to try out.
