BIBLE BUFFET

Who said that Bible study can't be fun? Welcome to the Bible Buffet, where up to four ready and willing players can travel through twelve delectable food-themed lands in order to...get to the end of the game. This game was released in 1993, but the graphics do not in any way reflect the year. As always, the sound is still irritating and Wisdom Tree loves to put high notes in wherever and whenever possible. This game was NOT ported to the Sega Genesis. You don't hear me sobbing in my boots. This is version 6.0, and I know not of any other versions. I'm not interested either.

There are two areas of play. The first is a board-like setting, similar to that of a board game (like Monopoly, Life, yadda yadda blah blah). You can use the spinner in the bottom left hand corner to find out how many spaces you can move forward. If the spinner stops on the face, you have to either lose a turn, or go back a few spaces...and lose a turn. Whoever gets to the end of the path first wins the game, and gets a freaky "First to Finish" award. Honourable mention goes to those who collect the most food during the game.

Depending on what square you land on, you may have to enter an action scene or answer some biblical questions. The action scene is lame, and usually consists of enemies that reflect the land you're in coming at you angrily. Just either shoot them or get out of their way and follow the path off the screen until you get to the EXIT sign. The question portion just asks you various multiple choice questions about the Bible's contents. I sure stank at that, so I guess I won't win the "Most Questions Answered Correctly" award. I cry into my pillow every night because of that. Just kidding; I wouldn't bawl over such a corny game as this. In the question section, you can win health and gold stars, which are always important in any game or primary classroom.

If I had to choose only one game between any of the NES games by Wisdom Tree to purchase, I'd choose...well, it wouldn't be this one. I'd ask for Kirby's Adventure instead. Even though Kirby is a vacuum, Bible Buffet sucks more. The color scheme is poor in the action areas, and it's just not up to the 1993 standards (like Kirby's Adventure was!). The only good thing was digitized speech. "Player One!" Hooray. Give them a round of applause. Now throw vegetables at them and say "Start a Bible buffet." I need sleep after this.


Don't forget to eat your carrots.

Visit twelve different lands in this wacky off-kilter game, including the drippy Liquid Land, the well-basted Bar-B-Q Land, and the oh-so-spudly Potato Land! ...Oh, is it my turn already? Joy!

Tomatoes and cabbages inhabit this farmyard. Your goal is to get to the exit without getting killed by the nasty vegetational army of Buffet Land -- what a lousy job. I also just realized that your score is measured in pounds.
