Difficulty[edit | edit source]

This challenge emphasizes a double-edged sword style of play. When you're low on health, you can inflict more damage. This can put you in a near-death scenario constantly.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Since you're playing as Eve, Whore of Babylon Whore of BabylonWhore of Babylon Icon.pngIncreases damage and speed whenever Isaac has half a red heart or less (one red heart for Eve), ignoring any soul or black hearts. will activate when you have 1 Red Heart or less, rather than 1/2. Since she starts with 2 hearts, the Razor Blade Razor BladeRazor Blade Icon.pngUnlimitedUpon use, deals one heart of damage to Isaac and grants +1.2 damage for the current room. can power her up right away.
  • Keep in mind that the Razor Blade Razor BladeRazor Blade Icon.pngUnlimitedUpon use, deals one heart of damage to Isaac and grants +1.2 damage for the current room. inflicts damage. Using it will activate the Dead Bird Dead BirdDead Bird Icon.pngSpawns a flying familiar for the current room that chases enemies whenever Isaac takes damage..
  • Sacrificial Dagger Sacrificial DaggerSacrificial Dagger Icon.pngDagger orbits Isaac, dealing very high damage. and Dark Matter Dark MatterDark Matter Icon.pngIncreases Damage by 1 and adds a chance to shoot fear tears. can be used together. The Fear effect can drive enemies away, allowing you to chase and kill them with the dagger.
  • Making one deal with the devil can permanently activate Whore of Babylon Whore of BabylonWhore of Babylon Icon.pngIncreases damage and speed whenever Isaac has half a red heart or less (one red heart for Eve), ignoring any soul or black hearts.. However, this can put you in a very dangerous position with only one Red Heart. A Dark Bum Dark BumDark Bum Icon.pngSpawns a familiar that follows Isaac around and collects red hearts. For every one-and-a-half red hearts collected, Dark Bum will generate one soul heart, one hostile Spider or one friendly blue spider. can produce Soul Hearts, which can allow you to keep low Red Hearts and not be near death as much.
  • Since all of your starting items are from the Devil Room Pool, you have a much higher chance to get some of the stronger items such as Mom's Knife Mom's KnifeMom's Knife Icon.pngIsaac's tears are replaced by a knife that pierces enemies, can travel through obstacles, and can hurt enemies while Isaac is holding it. Holding down the fire button before firing increases its range and power. or Brimstone BrimstoneBrimstone Icon.pngTears are replaced by a laser beam that pierces through all enemies and obstacles in its path and deals high damage. Can only be fired after a short charge-up period.. Make sure you open the Devil Room as often as possible. Pick up an item in the first Devil Room, even if you don't need it. This will prevent Angel Rooms from spawning in the future, increasing the likelihood of being able to obtain items from the arguably stronger Devil Room pool, as well as exchange HP to activate Whore of Babylon Whore of BabylonWhore of Babylon Icon.pngIncreases damage and speed whenever Isaac has half a red heart or less (one red heart for Eve), ignoring any soul or black hearts..
