Thank you BUD Games for sending us this game to review!

Alpha/Omega: The Christian RPG is a cute game developed and published by BUD Games. On its Steam page, one of the tags is RPG Maker, implying that that was the software used to make the game. Alpha/Omega has nice, catchy music that sometimes has lyrics, and when it does, the lyrics are Christian based (and very much appropriate for the setting of the game).

The basic story of Alpha/Omega is that your character, Mindy, and her friend Steve are excited to play the hot new game, Alpha/Omega. (Most of the game’s action takes place in its Alpha/Omega.) When Mindy launches the game, her avatar is nameable. This Alpha/Omega is a game that is supposed to run through the whole Bible, and the first story that this game starts with is called Lucifer’s Rebellion, and it focuses around how Lucifer rebelled against God and created sin. So far, this story is the only one in Alpha/Omega.

Highlights:

Strong Points: Great story; has a very good way of recreating the story of the Bible it is focused upon
Weak Points: Several typos; short (only 1.5 hours so far)
Moral Warnings: RPG violence

Mindy’s avatar and Steve’s avatar, Stevenator, are seen by the other characters to have somehow come from the future, and the demon characters which are fought in battle want them to die, because they are against the plan of God’s creation of humanity. Mindy’s character and Stevenator have to save the Lord’s iconic angels, like Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, as well as Uriel (who is portrayed as a girl). In the first playthrough of the game, there is also an angel named Kota that helps you as well. The main goal of Lucifer’s Rebellion is to get to God’s courtyard and fight Lucifer and his angels.

Before the crew gets to the courtyard, Mindy and Stevenator are told the story of how Lucifer held a meeting with all of the angels to get them to join his cause. Of course, Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel don’t agree with Lucifer, but all of the other angels shown do. After the battle in the courtyard, the game seems to make you prepare for some sort of battle, but the story doesn’t go on at all from there. The game isn't very complete at all; as of the time this review was written, there is only one story so far.

The avatars are cute; and the graphics are fairly simple. The drawings to represent the character’s expressions are reminiscent of anime art; and said avatars seem to be pixelated chibis. The game’s dialogue, however, has typos, for example, I saw one line where the first letter of the sentence wasn’t capitalized.

Score Breakdown:
Higher is better
(10/10 is perfect)

Game Score - 56%
Gameplay - 13/20
Graphics - 4/10
Sound - 6/10
Stability - 5/5
Controls - 4/5

Morality Score - 92%
Violence - 7/10
Language - 10/10
Sexual Content - 10/10
Occult/Supernatural - 9/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical - 10/10

The controls are also very simple; you can use the arrow keys to move or you can click on the spot you want your character to go, and they will go there. In battle, you can use X to change your party if, for example, one of your party members dies. In the settings menu, the difficulty can also be changed. The default is 50%, but it can go as high as 200%. (I played it on 50%; there’s no way I would have been able to beat it on 200%.) In the menu for other game functions, several Bible verses are mentioned when you click on items, and in the Alpha/Omega inside of it, it starts out by stating Revelation 12:7. It takes about 45 minutes to clear the first part of Alpha/Omega, and you can play it again and make new choices. The angels that help you are also aware that the game has been played before, and they remember the characters, but they know that they need to act out their roles as well.

When you play it, you can find paintings in the game that will prompt a one-question quiz based off of the painting. For example, there’s a painting of Michael with his foot on Satan’s head, and the game will ask you a question about Michael. If you answer the question correctly, you will get you 10 Hero Points, which are basically the equivalent of coins or gold in other RPGs. There is also a DLC available for Alpha/Omega that gives you 1,000 Hero Points in the form of a chest. Alpha/Omega also has things you can do while you're not playing the game's Alpha/Omega, for example, Mindy can get tempted by the devil and he has to be defeated.

If you are a fan of RPGs and are looking for a Christian RPG, then this is the game for you (if, of course, you don’t care much about the quality). It’s very kid-friendly, and would be good to show your little ones to introduce them to the Bible (after, of course, the game gets more Bible stories to tell!).

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
