Bible Games

Bible Games for the NES is bad. Before I begin the review, let's look for a good game made by Wisdom Tree (previously Color Dreams)

Sorry, can't find one. This is no exception.


Graphics
Graphically the game looks pretty standard, but flicker and graphical glitches are everywhere. After about an hour of playing (I made it that far) I felt like I was going to vomit. The graphics give you a headache, but take away flicker and glitches and they aren't that bad.

Sound
The game sounds even worse than it looks. The annoying loop music never changes, and goes on forever, and considering this game is about the Bible, I think the music is showing what happens to bad people when they die.

Fun Factor
The game is basically a Super Mario Bros. 2 (Doki Doki Panic) clone with some horrid design and objectives thrown in. The games either have you collect things or bring an object to the end of a level, with a Mario 2 combat system, making the game bland and tedious. I doubt this game was play tested (what can you expect from Color Dreams/Wisdom Tree though?)

There are three games here, one just has you advance (while answering bible questions) one has you save baby Moses (the worst of the bunch) and two have you collecting animals (BAD!)

Challenge
The challenge here is about standard for an NES title, it won't have you break your controller, but it won't let you win. Of course, there's no fun to be had in the challenge, but I can't factor that in.

Replay value
I beat everything to review it, and I don't think you'll want to beat ONE of these pathetic "games" or even beat a level.

Closing comments
Every game has one die-hard fan, but I cannot imagine one person enjoying this game, it's pathetically bad and has no fun at all. I cannot remember anything positive about the game, only the frustration and boredom. This game's great, if you want appreciation for the classics.

I'm Jewish, do you see me calling for a Torah game? NO! Because there is no reason for it! This is THE WORST idea for a video game EVER!

Re: Bible Games

The only Wisdom Tree game I actually find myself enjoying is the Joshua Adventures one on Genesis. I used to play that on NES and hated it, but I find the Genesis version strangely addicting. Or maybe I am that one hardcore fan you mentioned. No probably not.

Re: Bible Games

Because of this game and the law suit involved, 3rd party developers no longer needed to pay Nintendo to make games for their console. Because of this game we got great games like Super Sprint and RBI Baseball.

Re: Bible Games

Ok that's a good point.

@Laserboy, the random large text makes this look bad. I suggest fixing it and maybe making it bold/underline instead.

yes, but that doesn't make it good. I don't look at it like that, I see it as a bad game.

I never said the game was any good. I just thought it might be interesting if you looked into and added some history to your eviews. Just my two cents though.

Re: Bible Games

I put history in games where I know about the history, this game didn't have a big enough history for it, aside from the non-liscensed thing.

Fixed some typos and unusual fonts. Other than that it's all good, thanks for the review I'll avoid this game at all costs.

Re: Bible Games

See I guess that I am one of the few that actually liked the game. I remember when it came out and the only place to buy it was at Christian Book Stores. I bought it right as soon as I saw the game.

I still like the game to this day.

Re: Bible Games

I remember this cartridge pretty vividly, and, although it wasn't a very good collection of games, I did enjoy the Noah's Ark portion quite a bit. Other than the flickers, I think the graphics stand up pretty well compared to other NES titles of its time.

Those other two games were atrocious, though...
