Thanks DigitalPraise for sending us this game to review!

Amazing Bible is a fun Christian puzzle game that you can pick up and play for a few minutes or hours. Your goal is to move two red and blue jewels simultaneously through a maze to their goals. The distance between the two jewels varies with every level. There are over one hundred levels that increase in difficulty. Each level is themed after a story in the Bible and the game will walk you through Genesis to Revelation.

The main obstacles in the maze are tiles. Most of the tiles cannot be budged but some of them can shatter, move on their own, or move when you push them. There are even buttons to launch projectiles to smash tiles in your way. A new effect is revealed after clearing seven consecutive mazes so there is always something to look forward to.

The PC/Mac version of the game comes with a Maze Editor. The maze editor seemed a bit clunky but it gets the job done. I was hoping to be able to design a maze from scratch but you’re limited to just editing existing mazes. When you choose a maze, the background music comes bundled with it. To edit the maze you have to choose what you want the tile to do and then click on the destination.

The controls are pretty straight forward; you can use the mouse or the keyboard to move the jewels across the maze. I prefer using the keyboard.

The background music varies with the different maze themes. It was always pleasant to listen to and fits the game well. The sound effect for bumping into the tiles got annoying after a while.

Graphically speaking this game has its plusses and minuses. The game’s graphics are good for a puzzle/maze game. I like the variety and different themed tiles. The Bible story font was easy to read but the blurry game menu font I wasn’t too fond of. My biggest complaint is that this game does not allow you to change the screen resolution thus making the game look blurry on my big 24” LCD monitor. Another gripe is the installer did not let me choose a different drive to install the game onto.

When it came to stability the main game ran without any problems. In order for me to get the maze editor to work initially, I had to run the game in administrator mode. After I created a maze, administrator mode was no longer necessary. I’m not sure if this issue affects the Mac version or not, as my son already ruined my install disc, so I cannot verify it.

From an appropriateness standpoint this game is pretty safe and fun for people of all ages. The stories can be a little violent but they’re in the Bible. Some of the Stories mentioned are the plagues of Egypt, Joseph the dreamer, and Samson.

All in all this is a fun and unique puzzle game for the family. My kids are mesmerized by it. With a price tag of $9.95 I highly recommend checking it out. There is no multiplayer and no demo available so you’ll have to take my word for it. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t an option to adjust the screen resolution but you can edit the commonConfig.xml file.
