Let me just preface this with a caveat: I would NOT recommend this game if you're not a fan of Wolfenstein 3D, or novelty games in general. I am only giving it a recommendation if you have a predisposition toward early FPS games.

As an early FPS game, one of the Wolfenstein 3D engine games, this is actually overall quite solid. The level design has some weaknesses in it, but as a whole the difficulty ramps up quite nicely, and other then giving no concern for actually making sense as far as being on an ark is concerned, they are mostly entertaining and easy enough to navigate.

The graphics are fine, even if I found areas that overused the "yellow curtain" theme to be somewhat headache inducing. The theme is quite novel, and doesn't entirely work, but there's no reason for that alone to turn you away. There are even some nice touches, such as all the episodes can be run as one single game, and the early episodes are shorter than the later ones.

The game is certainly not flawless. Like Wolfenstein 3D itself, nearly every enemy is a hitscanning enemy, meaning they will instantly deal damage to you no matter how far away they are. Sure, further away, more likely to miss, but one major issue is just how much damage they can do when they're right on top of you. They deal progressively more damage each spit - how they 'shoot' - the closer they are to you. Which leads, particularly in later levels, to an abundance of traps. Enemies around corners that you can't hit until they get a free shot off you, enemies standing right behind doors, etc. So in later episodes, there will be several instances of "Open door, DIE!" There's some maze areas as well with very tight corridors and enemies that just keep filtering in from all sides, making it a real death trap as well. One of the weapons, a rapid-firing slingshots, takes up gigantic portions of the screen, obscuring vision dramatically. The new weapons, coconut and watermelon launchers, cannot fire over obstacles like the regular slingshots can, but can do some splash damage and sometimes can breeze past animals and still put them to sleep (this game's non-violent approach). They are not very consistent, and have a tendency to hit walls, corners, objects, and 'explode' too early. On later levels, you will STRUGGLE for ammo.

If you DO like Wolfenstein 3D games, this one's perfectly fine. If you like novelty games, this one also qualifies. On those points, absolutely, pick the game up and give it a try. But if you are annoyed by some of the worst issues these Wolfenstein 3D games can have, this game certainly shares them. Be warned.

Goat Skin's Game Review: Out of the 11 exhilarating minutes of knocking out goats in thee Noah's Ark, I have become a better person. I woke up and realized that the ark was not 60 cubits but infact it was 50 cubits. You learn these great things in this game. This game has given me a jump start into a newer more holy life. I would like to thank Wisdom Tree, Inc. and of course the lord and saviour for bestowing this work of art upon me.

It's... not that bad. I thought it'd be another meme game, but this game can be fun.

As far as classic-as-hell shooters go, this one manages to stand above what I'd have expected; it's fast paced, straight to the point, pretty fluid, and there are secrets galore, it's all good, albeit maybe too simple fun. Heck, the first hour of this I played was more enjoyable than the very little I remember of DOOM. Navigation can be pretty confusing, due to the walls looking pretty much the same (it was '94-ish after all) and the maze-like layout of the levels, but thankfully, there's a convenient map.

Even if it's competent enough, I've been having a lot of issues about the save feature; it does function for the most part, but it works utterly bad because of how OCD I am, like if I make a new save at the beginning of a level, I must either save or load another one to not accidently quicksave over it (there aren't slots dedicated to Quicksaves). I can't reorder the saves in the game, but instead I'd have to number them in the save folder, AND it's not in the order of (1, 2, 3, 10), but is rearranged by the first numbers (1, 10, 2, 3), it's odd, and deleting some saves messes with all the others (due to Steam Cloud?), and thus I lost a few saves because of this (??!?).

Thankfully, the "Christian propaganda", if I could call it that, isn't in your face, it's very tame and take instead the form of optional quizzes for goodies, and read the stickied FAQ, you wouldn't be supporting fraudulent pirates by buying this.

Despite the issues I have with the saving, and even though it's far from being a blast of a game, you wouldn't go too wrong with this one, and if you love Wolfenstein 3D to death, this is an interesting coat of paint.

Christian style Wolfenstein 3D. Seems pretty stupid to me. It's also boring.
I farmed the cards and throw it to the WTF category.

Started the game, shot some sheep, converted to Baptism and saw the deep philosophical analogy about the need to wipe out heretical enemies for the sake of a holy empire and the grace of god,

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.

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.

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!
