+ + +



Bible Adventures (Fair)
Purchase on Amazon or Steam

Platforms: NES, Sega Genesis
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1991

This retro platformer can still be a lot of fun as you play through the stories of Noah's Ark, Baby Moses, and David and Goliath. Just don't expect too much of a challenge.


+ + +


Bible Buffet (Poor)
Purchase

Platform: NES
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1993

You play platforming levels in different food-themed areas as well as answer trivia questions in this board game. It's an odd gem in the Christian video game genre, suitable for the true connoisseur.


+ + +



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.


+ + +



Joshua & the Battle of Jericho (Good)
Purchase

Platforms: NES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1992

Control Joshua as you race against the clock to collect enough resources to exit each level. Joshua uses his horn to defeat enemies. At the end of each level, you also need to answer multiple choice questions on the story of Joshua.


+ + +


King of Kings: The Early Years (Good)
Purchase

Platform: NES
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1991

This is a three-in-one game of playing the Wise Men as they collect their gifts and head to Bethlehem, the Holy Family as they flee to Egypt, and Joseph and Mary as they search for the Boy Jesus at the Temple. You have to avoid traps and enemies while answering trivia questions for points. You'll also see a scene from the early years of Jesus' life at appropriate points in the game.


+ + +


NIV Bible & the 20 Lost Levels of Joshua (Fair)
Purchase (a rare find!)

Platform: Game Boy
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1996

Read or search the Bible or play a short version of the dungeon crawler, Joshua & the Battle of Jericho reviewed above.


+ + +


Noah's Ark (Excellent)
Purchase (this one's pretty difficult to find!)

Platform: NES
Publisher: Konami, 1992

Play as Noah gathering the animals across all seven continents. This is a very loose rendition of the story, though, as Noah changes form with different power-ups and even fights some rather interesting bosses.


+ + +



Spiritual Warfare (Fair)
Purchase

Platform: NES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1992

Use the Armor of God and the Fruit of the Spirit to battle (convert) souls. This game has a good premise but lacks a story to hook the player, relying solely on the theme and gameplay.


+ + +


Sunday Funday: The Ride (Poor)
Purchase

Platform: NES
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1995

Ride your skateboard and dodge bullies on your way to Sunday School. While Christian-themed, there isn't much content to this one.


+ + +



Super 3D Noah's Ark (GoodReview)
Purchase on Amazon or Steam

Platform: DOS, PC, Super Nintendo
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1994

This is a first-person shooter, but you're using food to put irate animals back to sleep as they ride the waves on Noah's Ark.


+ + +


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.


+ + +


King James Bible (Fair)
Purchase (if you can find it!)

Platform: Game Boy
Publisher: Wisdom Tree, 1994

Read or search the Bible or play either word search or a version of hangman in which you try to keep your sheep safe. It's a simple game, but it's well done.


+ + +



The Story of Noah's Ark  (Good)
Purchase

Platform: Nintendo DS
Publisher: SouthPeak Games, 2011

Listen to the story of and play a variety of mini and educational games based on Noah's Ark.
