Christian Trivia Video Games


Bible Builder (Excellent)

Purchase (if you can find it!)

Platform: DOS
Publisher: Everbright Software, 1992

This is a trivia game that goes beyond the Bible to include classic hymns. You can choose your difficulty level, and when you get the right answers, you'll get a piece of a Bible verse puzzle. When you get enough pieces to name the verse, you win. When you get too many wrong answers, the candle on the left burns down, and you lose.

Bible Trivia Quiz (Fair)

Platform: Android
Publisher: idailybread.org, 2018

I like that there are three difficulty levels and various achievements to earn. The questions are fair, and when you get a wrong answer, it highlights the right one so that you can learn from your mistake if you're so inclined. Still, there's not much to this game, and there are too many ads for my taste.

Bible Quiz (Good)

Platform: Android
Publisher: idailybread.org, 2017

Wow! This one is for serious Bible students. It will give you a verse (in King James!), and you have to choose which book it's from. It's great if you want a challenge, but this game isn't going to be for everyone. There are ads, but they're unobtrusive at the bottom of the screen.

Captain Bible: Dome of Darkness  (Excellent)

Purchase

Platform: DOS
Publisher: Bridgestone Multimedia Group, 1994

Fight the devil's evil robots with the Sword of the Spirit and the Shield of Faith! Gather Bible verses. Become the Bible Corps champion sent to rescue the city from the lies of the enemy! The robots, cybers, will try to tell you lies about the faith. You'll then have the opportunity to choose a Bible verse that tells the truth. When you select the right verse, you defeat the robot blocking your way.

The Bible Game (Excellent)

Purchase

 Platforms: Game Boy Advance, PS2, Xbox
Publisher: Crave Entertainment, 2005

This is a fun one to play with your friends. You're competing against up to 3 other players or the computer on a game show and answering trivia questions or playing mini-games for points. There's a lot of variety in the content and the mini-games themselves. The graphics have held up well for a PS2-era game. I'd definitely recommend it as a group game.

Bible Trivia: Avatar Edition (Good)

Purchase (this one's pretty rare!)

Platform: Xbox 360
Publisher: DualOpAmp29, 2012

Play by yourself or with up to three other players as you take turns answering multiple choice questions before your time for your turn runs out.

Granny's Bible Dojo (Excellent)

Purchase
Platform: iOS
Publisher: InsideOut Studies, 2014


This is a great game for learning the books of the Bible. Granny will present the books in a jumbled order, and you have to crack the boards in order. When you crack one, another will appear behind it. You'll also hear Granny's instructions and encouragement, so that adds some humor to the game.



+ + +


The Great Bible Race (Excellent)

Purchase

Platforms: PC, Mac
Publisher: Great Bible Race, 2014

This quiz game includes difficulty levels, multiplayer, and various game modes to let you answer a variety of questions or hone in on specific topics. In Race Mode, there's the added challenge of the timer. Besides the classic Church Edition, you can also purchase the African American edition, which adds a little color to the game's artwork.



+ + +


Solomon Says: Anything Goes (Good)

Purchase

Platform: PC, Mac
Publisher: Cloud 9 Games, 2005

Play against the computer or against players in this game show trivia competition. Solomon is your host, and you can set the difficulty to an appropriate level.
