Bible Adventures (1990)

Bible Adventures is an unlicensed religious game released for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1990. It was developed and published by Wisdom Tree. It was later ported to the Sega Mega Drive in 1995.

The game features three different stories from the Old Testament of the Bible: Baby Moses, Noah’s Ark, and David and Goliath. Players can play through the stories in any order they choose.


Bible Adventures is a side-scrolling platformer with gameplay similar to Super Mario Bros. 2. The player controls one of three characters: Moses, Noah, or David. Each character has their own unique abilities. Moses can use his staff to part the waters and create a path for his followers. Noah can build a boat to carry his family and the animals to safety. David can use his slingshot to defeat Goliath.

The player must guide their character through each level, avoiding enemies and obstacles. The levels are filled with items that can help the player, such as power-ups and extra lives.


Baby Moses

The Baby Moses story follows the story of Moses as a baby. Moses’ mother, Jochebed, hides him in a basket and sets him adrift on the Nile River to save him from being killed by the Pharaoh. The basket is found by Pharaoh’s daughter, who adopts Moses as her own son.

Noah’s Ark

The Noah’s Ark story follows the story of Noah and his family as they build an ark to save themselves and the animals from a great flood. God has told Noah that he will destroy the world with a flood because of the wickedness of the people. Noah and his family, along with two of every kind of animal, board the ark and are saved from the flood.

David and Goliath

The David and Goliath story follows the story of David, a young shepherd boy, as he defeats the giant Goliath. The Philistines are at war with the Israelites, and Goliath, the Philistine champion, challenges the Israelites to send out a champion to fight him. David volunteers to fight Goliath, and with God’s help, he defeats Goliath with a single stone from his slingshot.


Bible Adventures received mixed reviews upon release. Some critics praised the game’s educational value, while others criticized its simplistic gameplay and graphics. However, the game was a commercial success, selling over 1 million copies worldwide.
