Computer Bible Games – Our Classic Game Series

Our classic Computer Bible Games were originally published between 1982 and 2012.  The Bible story games in this section use graphic layouts as game boards.  Some of the games require moving a player figure around  a game layout. This movement can be accomplished in two ways: either by the use of the keyboard letters, pressing “N” to move north, “S” to move south, “E” for east and “W” for west. The second way to move is with a joystick. The games with movement depend on dexterity and coordination. Other games are games of logic, they require you to out think the computer.   These Bible story games can be enjoyed by all ages, beginning with the ability to read.   The last Computer Bible Games Series Bundle included the following Bible Games:

UPDATE!!  Our best Computer Bible Games have been ported to Microsoft Small Basic, Visual Basic, Visual C# and Java.  Please Check Our Computer Bible Games Programming Tutorials to learn how to develop games using the most popular programming languages here.

Daniel and The Lions – Daniel chapter 6 tells us that King Darius threw Daniel into the lions’ den because Daniel was found praying to God which was forbidden by Babylonian law. Because Daniel trusted in God and prayed every day, God closed the mouths of the lions. In this game you are to help protect Daniel from the lions.

HOW THE GAME PLAYS – After loading the game into the computer, to play the game you must type the word “RUN” and again press the “ENTER/RETURN 1 button. The computer will tell you that you must instruct Daniel where to move to keep Daniel away from the lions and from falling into a pit. The computer will then draw a game layout with Daniel, the lions, and the pits in random locations. If you press “2” Daniel will fall into a pit.  A “3” will move him into a lion’s spot. Numbers “5,” “6,” “7,” and “8” are all locations that lions can immediately move to. The best move is “1” which puts a pit between Daniel and two of the lions into which they will fall. Note that Daniel’s new location which was position #1 will now be position #5. The game is won when all the lions fall into pits. Don’t worry if you lose, God will still protect Daniel.

Elijah and the Ravens – In 1 Kings 17:1-6, God sends ravens to drop bread for Elijah while he hides from King Ahab. In this game, you will try to catch as many falling loaves of bread as possible to feed Elijah.

HOW TO PLAY: Use the cursor left and right arrow keys or left and right mouse buttons to move Elijah under a falling loaf so he can be fed by the Raven. God always provides for our needs.”)

Noah’s Ark –  The Turtles Are Coming to Noah’s Ark. Noah was commanded by God to take two of every kind of animal into the ark, as we read in Genesis 6. Chapter 7 adds additional animals if they are clean. Although turtles aren’t named, they very likely were included.  Although this game has ten turtles starting for the ark, and only two reaching it, it isn’t likely that the animals competed to be the chosen two. God guided two of every kind to come to the ark. The purpose of this game, however, is to remember that God has promised never again to flood the world, but He still hates wickedness and wants us to live righteous lives. According to the Bible story, two of every type animal came to the ark.

HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED  – This game begins with ten turtles that are numbered 1 to 10. The computer will ask you to choose the two turtles you think are the two that will come to the ark You must type in a number from 1 to 10 and press the “ENTER” button. The computer will then ask you to choose a second number from 1 to 10. You must now type in a second number from 1 to 10 and press the “ENTER” button again. The computer will then draw a field of 10 turtles and will randomly move them one space at a time across the screen. The two elephants that make it across the screen first are the ones who make it to Noah’s ark The object of the game is to guess at least two of the turtles correctly. If you guess them both correctly you are a fantastic guesser!

Heavenly  Mansions – Jesus told us that we should not let our hearts be troubled because He is preparing a place for us in His Father’s house where there are many mansions (John 14). In the “Heavenly Mansions” game you will look for Jesus’ 12 apostles in these mansions. The game can give us a limited idea of how extensive eternity is. If you were not given the hint that the apostles are no farther away than 12 rooms from where you begin, you could wander through almost unlimited number of rooms without success.

HOW THE GAME PLAYS – After loading the game into the computer, to play the game you must type the word “RUN” and again press the “ENTER/RETURN” button. After the computer sets up the game and makes its random choices, it will ask you if you are ready to begin playing. All you need to do is press the letter “Y 1 to say “YES.” The computer will draw one of the many rooms and assign it a number between 1000 and 9999.  The computer will then ask you which way you want to go (N, S, E, or W). North would move you to the room with a number 10 less than the number of the room where you are at present. In the above example you would move to room #7458. South would move you to the room with a number 10 more than where you are. East is one number higher, and West is one number lower. Of course, you must realize that you can go only the direction that has an open door. The object of the game is to find in which rooms the apostles of Jesus are living in the least number of moves.


THE GOOD SHEPHERD – In Luke 15:1-7, Jesus tells a parable about a lost sheep. The shepherd leaves the 99 sheep to look for the one lost sheep. Once he finds the lost sheep he rejoices! Jesus says, in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. Are you the lost sheep Jesus is looking for?
HOW TO PLAY: Take the shepherd’s staff and carry it through the wilderness to find the lost sheep in the least amount of moves. Hint: Look by a rock. Sheep feel safer around rocks. Select Difficulty by pressing the left button for Easy and the right button for Harder. Click on the Start Button to begin. Click on the Stop Button to stop the program.” Use the keypad keys to move.

SHEEP AND THE GOATS – Jesus said that in the last day he would separate the sheep from the goats. You find the sheep by clicking on a grid.” The sheep will always be hiding near a rock.

THE PRODIGAL SON GAME – In Luke 15:11-32, Jesus tells a parable about a prodigal son who foolishly leaves home and squanders his inheritance in a distant land. After he runs out of money he has to work by feeding pigs. When he comes to his senses he returns home to his father where his father has a large party to celebrate his sons return. No matter how far we wander from God he always welcomes us home and forgives us of our sins.
HOW TO PLAY: Help the prodigal son find his way home from the distant land all the way back to his father. To help him survive, the prodigal son must find pig feeding jobs every 25 moves along the way so he can eat and eventually make his way home. Select Difficulty by pressing the left button for Easy and the right button for Harder. Click on the Start Button to begin. Click on the Stop Button to stop the program. Use the arrow keys to move the prodigal son.

THE LOST COIN ADVENTURE – In Luke Chapter 15: 8-10, Jesus tells a parable about a woman who loses a coin. She lights a candle and sweeps her house to find the lost coin. When found, she rejoices! In the same way, “there will be rejoicing in heaven when one sinner repents.” Help find the candle, broom and coin.

HOW TO PLAY: Click on the Start Button to begin. Click on the Stop Button to stop the program.Click here for a hint if you can’t seem to locate the candle, broom or the lost coin. The hint will indicate the general direction to go to find the next item you need. You may have to change directions a few times to get through the right set of doors to reach the next item. You can click on the Hint Button as many times as you need to as it is easy to get very lost”in the large maze of rooms. Use these buttons (or arrow keys) to move the woman.


The Exodus Game – The Amorites Are Coming!

Moses was called of God to lead the Children of Israel (the Israelites) out of Egypt and to the Promised Land (Exodus 3). God did not want His people to live with people whose “iniquity was full” (Genesis 15). The Amorites were one of these nations that had to be defeated in order for the Israelites to possess the land and live godly lives there. In Exodus 23 God said that if the Israelites obeyed Him, He would be an enemy to the Amorites and any other group of people that was an enemy to the Israelites. The purpose of this game is to remind us that we must  resist and fight against sin that is all around us. May we also remember that “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord” (Romans 6:23).

HOW THE GAME PLAYS – After loading the game into the computer, to play the game you must type the word “RUN” and again press the “ENTER/RETURN” button.   The computer first asks you how challenging you want the game to be. You must type in a number from 1 to 100 and press the “ENTER” button. The higher the number you enter, the fewer Amorites will be placed on the game board and therefore the easier the game will be to play. The computer will then draw a game layout with a “P” in the upper right corner to show the location of the Promised Land. In the lower left corner will be an “F” showing the starting location of the Israelites. The computer will ask you which direction you want the Israelites to move, N,S,E, or W? Each time you move, the computer will randomly decide whether or not to place some Amorites on the game board and if so, it will randomly decide where they will be placed. The position of the Amorites is shown by the letter “A.” The object of the game is to move the Israelites across the game board to the Promised Land in the least number of moves and avoid being driven back to the starting position by the Amorites attacking you.

Manna From Heaven – In the wilderness God provided manna as the Israelites’ daily food. In Exodus 16 they were told to go and gather enough manna for each day, except that on the sixth day they were to gather twice as much because the next day was the Sabbath and on the Sabbath they were to rest. The purpose of this game is to try to catch as much manna as you can before the sun sets. It shows us our God’s faithfulness in caring about our daily needs.

HOW THE GAME PLAYS: After loading the game into the computer, to play the game you must type the word “RUN” and press the “ENTER/RETURN” button. The computer will tell you to catch as much manna as you can before the sun sets. It will print a reminder that you must press the letter “L” to move your bucket to the left and you must press the letter “R” to move the bucket to the right The computer will then ask you if you are ready to begin playing. To start the manna falling, press the letter “Y.” The computer will draw a game board with a line at the top of the screen to represent the coming darkness caused by the setting sun. At the bottom of screen, in the center, the computer will print a “IT to represent the basket that you must move to catch the manna as it falls. The computer will then “drop” a piece of manna (0) from a random position.  Before it reaches the bottom of the screen you must move the basket to a position directly under the manna in order to catch it. Each time some manna falls, the skyline will lower and the distance the manna has to fall will be shorter. The object of the game is to be the player who catches the most manna before the sun sets and the Sabbath begins.

DANIEL AND THE LIONS – In Daniel 6:16-28, King Darius is tricked into putting Daniel into the Lions Den. Daniel prays for God’s protection and God sends His Angel to shut the Lion’s mouth. God will protect you if you pray to Him today.
HOW TO PLAY: Select Difficulty by pressing the left button for Easy and the right button for Harder. Click on the Start Button to begin. Click on the Stop Button to stop the program. Use the keypad keys to move Daniel. Use button to ‘shoot’ prayers at lions.
The Quail Game:

When God  directed Moses to lead the children  of Israel out of Egypt to take them to the promised  land,  they first had to cross the wilderness.   God used the time spent in the wilderness to teach His people that they should depend on Him for all their needs. Since they had been slaves in Egypt for so long, depending on human  masters for their needs, they had a very difficult time learning  to depend on the Lord.  When  the people became hungry in the wilderness they did not think to stop right there and pray to God and ask for food; instead, they complained, “Would to God we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt … when we did eat bread to the full.” (Exodus 16:.3). In verse 1.3 God sent quail for them to eat.

HOW THE GAME PLAYS

After loading the game into the computer, you must type the word “RUN’ and press the “ENTER/RETURN” button. The computer will take a couple of minutes to choose random locations  to hide the quail.

The computer  then draws a field of grass in which it has randomly hidden the quail. It will then say, “FIND 20 HID­ING QUAIL.” You must now enter a vertical position  from 1 to 10 and  press the “return” button. The computer will now ask for a horizontal position  which you will input  in the same way. If the  numbers you  have chosen  were also  the  numbers the computer had randomly chosen, the computer will print a “V’ in the grass at the location  with those  coordinates. If the numbers do  not match,  then  the computer will print  a blank  space instead.  Remember that  the  quails  always  hide  in  coveys  of  at least 4.  The  object  of the game  is to find  the quails  in the least number of moves.

The Church Growth Game: On the day that Jesus ascended into heaven, He said to His disciples, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). Jesus had established a group of followers who accepted  Him  as their  Lord  and Savior and He called them His witnesses in the world so that more would accept Him as their Savior and become a part of His church.The book of Acts tells the story of how the church  grew during  the  first  century.  Acts 2:47 says, “And  the  Lord added  to the church  daily such as should  be saved.”

HOW THE  GAME  PLAYS

After loading  the game  into  the computer,  to play the game you must type the word “RUN” and again press the “ENTER/RETURN” button.  The computer will ask you how challenging you want the game to be. You must type in a number  from 0 to 25 and press the “ENTER”  button.  The  higher  the  number  you enter, the faster the church will grow and the more difficult the game will be.

The computer will draw a picture of a church sanctuary complete  with  rows of  pews  and  a  pulpit.  It will then randomly choose a number of members that belong to the church. It will draw in the church sanctuary  most of those members  (remember   that   not  all  the  members  attend church  every week).

The Rapture Game:  Jesus promised that He would come again to take us to be with Him  in His Father’s  House (John  14). This  is called “The  Rapture,”  when  the  Lord  Jesus  Christ  returns  and takes  those  who  have  believed on  Him,  both  dead  and living; to be with Him. “The Rapture Game” is a reminder of both the hope of Christ’s corning again for those who believe  on  Him  and   the  duty  He  left  with  us  of  witnessing.

HOW THE  GAME  PLAYS

After loading  the game  into  the computer,  to play  the game you must type the word “RUN”  and  again  press the “ENTER/RETURN”  button.

The computer will tell you to win people (symbolized  by a “T’) to the Lord by guessing their position on the game board. You must press the letter “Y’  for “YES” when you are ready to play. The computer  will then draw the game board  on  the  screen.  Remember  a “T’ in  the  upper  left corner of the screen will have a lower numbered  position. A “T’ in the lower right corner will have a higher numbered position.

Bible Books Scramble Games – The Bible books scramble games in this section are designed to be lessons for learning about the Bible more than for just being games to play. Of course, what makes them fun is that these Bible lesson games are played on a computer. If these games are being played without supervision and the players are having a bit of difficulty with the answers, it is suggested that a Bible be used to look up the answers. The games in this section require a basic knowledge of the Bible by either the player or the person supervising the
use of the computer.

HOW THESE GAMES PLAY – After loading the game into the computer, to play the game you must type the word “RUN” and again press the “ENTER/RETURN” button. The computer will randomly choose a word which is the name of a book of the Bible with its spelling scrambled and will ask you to type in the correct spelling. After you type in the correct spelling, remember to press the “ENTER” button. The computer will not accept the answer unless it is correct.   In the Old Testament Scramble Games, I and II Samuel are treated as one word, “SAMUEL,” as are also I and II Kings and I and II Chronicles. Song of Solomon is used as one word, “SONGOFSOLOMON.” Likewise, multiple books in the New Testament are treated as one word, “CORINTHIANS,” “THESSALONIANS,” , “TIMOTHY,” “PETER” and “JOHN.”
