Good Friday Gaming
When I was young, video games, TVs, and any other forms of entertainment were prohibited during Good Fridays. Elders said that Good Friday is the day Christ died so everyone should do their own little sacrifice. That was before. Now, internet shops and some malls are open. Beaches and resorts are being flooded by people. So what could stop someone to play video games?
It seems that people are now starting to realize that sacrifices suck. Ok, before I get flamed by "teh believers", let me introduce you to the world of Christian video games. That's right, these are games made for Christians that supposedly would teach Christian values or whatever by a company called Wisdom Tree. These games were made years ago to be played on the Nintendo Entertainment System without Nintendo's approval. Talk about values. Pweh!
Let's start with Bible Adventures for the NES
First thing you'll notice is the color of the cartridge. Instead of following the standard grayish color, Wisdom Tree made the cartridge color blue. Bible Adventures contains three games: Noah's Ark, Baby Moses, and David & Goliath. All three games require gamers to carry something to somewhere in the game. In Noah's Ark, you need to carry a pair of animals in your checklist to the ark. In Baby Moses, you control moses' mom and you have to carry baby Moses to the end of the level. Last game in the cartridge is David & Goliath. Well... you have to carry the sheep and dodge lions and falling rocks.
You wouldn't believe it, but I actually once owned this piece of crap. Good thing I gave it away.
There's another game I've played before, it's Super Noah's Ark 3D for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. I actually remembered playing it for less than 10 mins before I threw the cartridge away, literally.
As usual, the game is unlicensed and it sucks. Here's a more in-depth review of these Christian games from the Angry Video Game Nerd.
Rip-offs galore aren't they? What happen to the "thou shall not steal" commandment? And what's with Nintendo? Why didn't they sue Wisdom Tree for the unlicensed games? Hmmm...
