1.3.3 Update

The long overdue patch release is finally here. No big features, but this fixes some major issues that some people have been experiencing with the released version.

Here are the Noah3D specific changes for this release:

  • Level 4-1's ending is cosmetically modified to remove the only unmarked mandatory secret in the game.
  • For new players, the game now defaults to SNES scale feeders since a common complaint was the large sprites despite it being an option in the menu.
  • On first run users are prompted to press a key or button on their controller to select input type. This avoids drifting when people left a gamepad plugged in and didn't intend to use it.
  • Default resolution changed to a 16:9 aspect ratio.
  • Menu no longer gives the option to increase the screen size such that the status bar is removed since it caused confusion.
  • Fixed some typos in the in game manual.
  • Changes to Steam integration to improve reliability.
  • Linux: Removed dependency on fluidsynth.

More changes come from the incorporation of ECWolf 1.3.3.

The controls for this are weird, and I can't tell if they're depicting the ark as a short stubby bathtub-shaped thing, or as the length it actually was (450 feet long, 75 feet wide, 45 feet high).

Of course, being a clone/reskin of Doom-type games, I suppose I can't really complain. The methods Noah used to actually feed animals on board the ark were actually much more mundane and practical. Get this game if you like MS-DOS shooter games and goofy sound effects.

This is actually a really fun game. I'm having more fun with it than I originally thought I would be.

Super 3-D Noah's Ark is a labyrinth FPS from the DOS era which used and upgraded Wolfenstein 3D's engine. It added a few cool things like MIDI support and texture-mapped floors and ceilings. This version on Steam has been repolished and ported over to modern operating systems, so now there's no need to use DOSBoX to emulate it!

The quality of this port is really good. The sound quality has been bumped up significantly, it can play in 1080p with true 16:9 aspect ratio (no stretching), the mouselook feels natural and it supports mods. This release also has achievements and trading cards, which is more than what most re-releases or remakes get.

In many ways I think this game is actually better than Wolfenstein 3D. The music is better for sure and there's more enemies scattered about, which leads to more action. The level design is smart. While the levels are maze-like, I have an easier time finding my way around and not being completely lost, like I did a lot with Wolfenstein's lack of color and texture variety. So nevermind the somewhat religious theme, as the game barely even touches upon the story.

The developer of this port is a core developer of ZDoom and ECWolf, and has some involvement with the development of Zandronum. If you play Doom, you likely have already used this guy's work before. The money spent on this game supports the development of the ECWolf engine (the engine this game uses) which will be receiving updates, like online multiplayer. If you take a peak in the forums, you'll understand why this developer is so cool and why he deserves your money. After all, it's just 5 bucks! Which is the same price as Wolfenstein 3D on Steam but without all the fancy upgrades.

If you were into Wolf3D or Ken's Labyrinth, you're gonna love this. Recommended.

I ALT+TABBED out of the game and accidently left it running in the background.
I now have 33 hours in it, and my computer has converted to Christianity and is constantly judging me.

Stuffing goats, deer, bears, and ostriches full of seeds until they're forced into a food coma can be a difficult job. Here are some words of god to help you get through, since the internet seems to have lost its way:

F9 -- Quickly save your progress
F10 -- Quickly load your progress

Press B, A, T all at the same time to receive helpful information from a strange unrecognized being, 'Apogee'.

Press I, L, M all at the same time to receive a full selection of feeding devices, munitions for all of them, both keys, and have your vitality restored. Your points, however, will be reset.

Press Left Alt, Left Shift, and Backspace at any time to yourself ascend to godhood, and gain full access to the world's inner workings. You can then access the following by holding Backspace and striking the corresponding key:

E - Complete level
Q - Quit
M - vertical mouse look on/off
G - God Mode, press again for god mode with no damage indicator
N - Noclip mode
S - Slow Motion
I - Items (health, ammo, score, +1 weapon)
D - FPS Counter (DarkOne)
W - Level warp
T - No target mode (Animals won't see you)
H - Hurt yourself
B - select border texture
C - display actor stats
F - display player coords
V - VBL's -- higher values create stuttering effect
O - Hide/Reveal automap
P - Screenshot
K - Give key (1 or 2)
L - Level stats
Z - Summon entity text prompt
X - Give text prompt

Now go forth, and feed those goats!


In all seriousness, this 'review' is just to distribute cheat codes that aren't yet available elsewhere on the internet, since they differ somewhat from Wolf3D. The game is a non-violent version of Wolfenstein 3D, ported from DOS to modern OS's, with its own level pack. It's a pretty good port, too -- you can reduce the size of the weapons, use mouselook, adjust audio sliders separately and render at weird resolutions like 3840x2400. It's worth a few bucks!

So here it is, the infamous Super 3D Noah's Ark.
Created by Wisdom Tree back in the mid 90's for the SNES, completely unlicensed and required you to insert a real SNES cart into the top to bypass the lockout chip.
Wisdom Tree licensed the Wolfenstein 3D engine from iD software, as a result this plays pretty much like your average Wolf 3D total conversion.

Somehow after 20 something years, this game gets a proper port to Windows and is released on Steam. Crazy huh?

The story goes that the animals on the Ark are restless and want Noah dead, and so Noah needs to go on an epic quest to calm them all down by firing feed at high velocity using a variety of Rube Goldberg inspired feed launching machinery.

So let's compare this to Wolf 3D.
  • Right off the bat the presentation here is good. The game was originally released on SNES and MS-DOS but here has been ported to Windows using a modern "source port". Sadly this is already better that the official Steam version of Wolf 3D, which is the original EXE slapped into DosBOX.
  • While it's mostly just asset replacements, since Wisdom Tree had source access there are some new things here. We have an automap (which makes searching the maze-like levels a bit less frustrating), and quizzes (which are all bible trivia).
  • In an effort to make this game non violent, there are no enemy hurt frames, which makes it difficult to tell if you've hit an enemy or not, and also doesn't allow you to cancel enemy attacks. (EDIT: the developer pointed out that enemies attacks can be canceled, just not on bosses)
  • Music here is a bunch of OGGs made out of midi versions of the soundtrack played with some sound font, which kinda adds to the corniness. The music is bland and loops often, which gets really annoying after a while. I wouldn't mind the option to use the original SNES version's music instead.
  • The graphic design isn't great, generally of lesser quality than other games of its era. Some of the weapons partially obscure the view as well. (EDIT: seems I completely missed the option that scales down the feeders to take up less of the screen, whoops)
  • Sound effects are lower quality and shorter than Wolf 3D's effects, which is understandable considering the SNES's sound capabilities were limited.
  • Level design is similar to Wolf 3D level design, though not as good. Secrets have been made really obvious, probably cause this was meant for kids.
  • Though this was made for kids, the difficulty ramps up very quickly and the game eventually turns into a nightmare. Most enemies spit at Noah using a hitscan attack, so the only way to avoid them is to stay out of range and hope RNG takes your side or take cover. Getting hit also deals a ton of damage.

So that's a very rough list of what's different here from vanilla Wolf 3D.
Now, why would you want this game?
  • Nostalgia for the DOS or SNES versions.
  • Historical interest.
  • Joke/meme factor.
  • You liked Wolf 3D and wouldn't mind a TC.
  • Supporting the ECWolf developer. (who takes the majority cut)
  • Rumoured future multiplayer update. (pelting other Noahs with feed until they pass out sounds hilarious)

If you fall into a couple of the above categories, this game might be for you. If not, you'll probably want to give it a pass.

It's an FPS where you'r character is Noah from bible fame and you are armed with a manner of catapults to pelt your flock into the land of nod! (someone please inform animal welfare this game promotes giving livestock roofies)

I have the greatest of respect for games designers but seriously!! what manner of methamphetamine were you taking to come up with this as an idea for a game??

In other news i went into my local bookshop and complained that there were no religious books in the fiction section, they just looked at me like i created super 3-D Noah's ♥♥♥♥

Noah's Wolfenstein 3D Ark

For a hardcore Satan worshipper such as myself, it seems like there'd be very little enjoyment for me to attain with Super 3-D Noah's Ark. Boy, was I mistaken. S3DNA is essentially the best Wolfenstein 3D / Doom clone, and I'll explain why.

Here's why I fell in love with this game:
  • Instead of killing, you use feeders to quickly tranqualize animals (which is amazing)
  • One of the feeders actually looks like an inverted pentagram
  • Bible quizzes supply you with power-ups, if answered correctly
  • Smooth, 'updated' controls allow for maximum playability

Here's what I didn't like about this game:

Super 3-D Noah's Ark is a pretty fun game!

I'm surprised! I first heard of this in 1995 and thought it was a joke, but playing it for the first time in 2016, on Linux with the steam controller, i am totally enjoying it!

The game is a G-rated FPS Wolfenstien 3D clone, updated for modern systems. You play as Noah, trying to put all the restless animals to sleep on the Ark. Aside from the regular elements you would expect to find in a game of this type, like different food shooters, animals and bosses, keys and secret passageways, it has these Noah quiz scrolls which give you a chance to get health/food. Let me warn you, i thought i knew his story fairly well, but i found these scrolls really test your understanding about God and Noah! The game offers some replayability too, as there's lots of achievements to get!
