Christian Video Games for DOS


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.

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.

Defender of the Faith: The Adventures of David (Fair)
Purchase (another rare one!)

 Platform: DOS
Publisher: Solid Rock Software, 1992

Fight your way through the stories of David's life in this combat-heavy game. You'll get a review of the Shepherd-King's life, but you might also get frustrated with the controls as you try to survive the enemies coming at you.



+ + +


Exodus: Journey to the Promised Land (Good)
Purchase

Platforms: DOS, NES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1991

This is a fun but repetitive dungeon crawler game shooting Ws (the Word) at enemies and barriers as you defeat Pharaoh's magicians and collect manna to advance to the next level. To continue, you have to answer multiple choice trivia questions about the Biblical story. Between each level, you'll see a scene from Moses' life.



+ + +


Onesimus: A Quest for Freedom (Good)
Purchase

Platform: DOS
Publisher: Ark Multimedia Publishing, 1992

Play as runaway slave Onesimus referenced in the book of Philemon in this platformer. The sound effects and music are very rockin', and the game is fairly challenging. You'll find Bible verses in the levels, but other than that, there's not much real Christian content in this game.
