Developer: Wisdom Tree
Wisdom Tree makes another attempt at beefing up biblical messages with this Wolfenstein clone - or should I say Wolfenstein conversion? This is the SNES version of Wolf 3D, only with new graphics and sound. Rumor has it Id was pissed off after Nintendo butchered their game, and gave Wisdom Tree the rights to make the only unlicensed Super Nintendo cartridge in history.
What confuses me about Wisdom Tree (aside from the evidently random order of words in Super 3D Noah's Ark) is their choice of company name. Does it refer to the Tree of Knowledge in the Genesis? The one who introduced the concept of evil to man? You know, the tree where the Devil (or a devil, anyway) lived in the form of the Serpent? The symbol and leading metaphor for moral decay and fall of both man and Paradise might not be an ideal name for a company, guys.
However, the name is pretty apt if you think about it. Their game Sunday Funday is a good example: Not even Grand Theft Auto 3 includes a kid that kills old ladies. In fact, no other game in this plane of reality gets even close to being screwed up enough to feature granny-killing kids on their way to Sunday school. How could nobody, not one single person, in the Wisdom Tree crew stop for a moment and think "Hey, which side in the Eternal Battle are we on, anyway?"
Well, back to the game. The arrival at Mount Ararat is only six days away, but the animals on the ark are growing restless. To settle them down, you have to walk through the ark and feed them fruit by slinging it at them. If you feed them enough food, they will go to sleep.
You have eight characters to choose from: Seven Dalai Lama incarnations and Richard Gere. The goal is to cross the finish line in your own tempo, thus reaching nirvana. This means the average lap time is close to ten years, except if you play as the current Dalai Lama, who rushes along like a deranged hog on a wild hunt for truffles.
You control the Hindu god Ganesh, Remover of Obstacles. The evil Shiva has kidnapped Ganesh's girlfriend Sarasvati, and you have to go through 100+ levels to rescue her. The levels are filled with obstructing blocks that you have to push around to make your way to the end. To receive the special Karma Bonus, collect all the popsickles on each stage.
