- Exodus: Journey to the promised land -

There have been games with strange subject matters throughout the years but this is has to be one of the (very) few that involves the bible. The story in question is about how Mozes frees his people from slavery in Egypt and leads them to the promised land. Gameplay consists of boulderdash like levels where you walk around picking up items and avoiding enemies in a maze. You'll face obstacles like the murmerings of Israel and bricks of labor while the enemies are mostly the pharao's followers while you can use the word of god and your staff.

You can choose to start the game on later levels but if this is your first time playing it's better to start at the beginning as they will show you the basics of what is to come. At first you can only use the word of god to stop pharao's followers but you can also use it to open a path through the sand or to break boulders instead of pushing them. Later on you can collect powerups in the form of things like authority of god that will make your words travel further or a staff that you can place down and it will explode taking out some obstacles for you. Most of these powerups are needed to complete a level as each one has their own layout and can only be completed in a specific way. To complete the level you must collect enough mana to open the path that is occasionally hidden underneath the sand so you might have to find it as well. Between the levels you are asked five multiple choice questions about events that happened during the exodus such as how did Mozes survive and which plagues were put upon Egypt. Each correct answer will give you one bible and once you have collected ten of them you will gain a life. After the questions you are shown a picture that will depict an event from one of the questions.

Personally I'm not sure about using religion in games but in this case they have been incorperated quite well. That still doesn't take away the fact that this is basically a boulderdash clone but luckily it's good enough to stand on it's own so you can enjoy the game without having any knowledge about the bible itself. That knowledge does help between levels to answer the questions correctly as you'll gain lives with it. The only thing I wonder is if there is a parting sea level which is my favorite part of the exodus hehe. Anyway religious or not this game is worth playing especially if you like puzzle games or boulderdash in particular.

Overal rating: 7/10
