While I was writing “Genesis RPG: the game that oughtta be” from my “game that oughtta be” series, I had to do some research to ratify my statement on how scarce biblical or religion-related games are, so I thought there’d be no harm in making this brief list at the same time just in case someone was interested.
This smart time management game is absolutely suited for all beliefs and ages. Not only it’s extremely well designed, it’s really fun. You’re Moses and have to help yours to cross the Red Sea, but some of them are old, or are drunk or lazy, or are too scared from the Egyptians that are chasing you down. Command the sea waves and ask for some little miracles here and there so your tribe can get to the other shore.
Thou hast, thou hast mich. Believer or not, this game is really fun and thrilling. Apps to plowshares, bros and sis.
Babel Rising could be considered a “defence” game as you have to stop and swipe off annoying humans trying to raise a tower high enough as to meet you ad personam. Of course, you might well babble their tongues, but nobody would get the lesson, so you opt for casting lighting bolts, summoning tsunamis and all sorts of calamities to raze that tower down.
Casting a lighting bolt over already drown arrogant humans is a legit combo and gives extra mana points.
Of course, God’s wrath is better watched in 3D, and the array of powers of the Almighty deserve to be high, broad and deep. Spectacular graphics and FX demand a slightly above average device, but look great when in all its splendor. Although gameplay is nearly the same as its 2D counterpart, both games aren’t mutually exclusive, being the former more casual and the latter mid-core-er.
BR3D is one of the games making the most of mobile devices: gestures include tap, swipe, tilt and shake.
In this standard irreverent blaxploitationfirst person shooter (FPS) you incarnate an afro Bronx angel in love with a red-haired mermaid and helped by a pixie Fae, whose goal is to stop waves and hordes of unworthy creatures to get onto Noah’s Ark and thus face their extinction. To fend off Teletubbies, Internet memes and other sinful abominations, you wield twin golden .50 Desert Eagles and thy Holy Rainbow Igneous Sword.
Sacred Guns is disrespectful with everything and NSFW because flying phalli. No pray to win, though.
Remember that The Simpsons episode when Bart has to be looked after by Flanders and he, Flanders and his two kids play altogether some kind of extremely hard Bible Trivial board game? Well, in what it is the only serious game in this list, you can put your biblical knowledge to test. A few questions are easy and answers belong to popular culture, but others are, well, fiendish.
