Our classic Computer Bible Games were originally published between 1982 and 2010. 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. ‘
Our Computer Bible Games Series Bundle included the following Bible Games:
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.”
