If you scanned the shelves of most video game stores, you wouldn't think that video gaming and Christianity were two things that go together. Most games are filled with all manner of unholy horrors, with their themes of death and destruction, just look at the Sodom and Gomorrah that is the Grand Theft Auto series of games for example.
However there have been a few small game makers that have dipped into scripture and released righteous video games for kids. One such example is Captain Bible in Dome Of Darkness, produced by Bridgestone Multimedia Group in 1994, for PC platforms.
Just what ever child wants, to play a superhero that defeats evil right? Whether driven by the "good book" or not, kids will still want to play it right? Wrong! As Captain Bible is simply dumb, and that's got nothing to do with its theme. Really it says it all at the top of the box, "Educational Adventure", two words that should never grace the from of a video game box. As it's the kiss of death for any piece of software.
The game is set in a city which was one day encased in a Dome of Darkness, by evil robots. Captain Bible works for Bible Corps., and is sent on a mission into the city but cannot take his electronic Bible with him. So Bible Corps. must beam scripture to him, and he must collect the verses from points around the city. Using the verses to battle the deceitful robots, and ultimately save the city and the people. Yay! Go Captain Bible! Yawn!
