EXODUS

I'll bet everyone would love to be Moses! Well, now you can, in the Moses' Adventure home game! ...well, actually they named it Exodus. It was released in 1991, and I actually find this game to be the best of the...Wisdom Tree saga series. Don't think that I'm praising the game -- it's still pretty bad, but not as bad as the others. According to that really hip manual (which also claims that if your game doesn't work immediately, you may have to wait 45 seconds -- isn't that something?), Moses must "solve 100 puzzling levels to complete the Exodus".

So, Moses grabs his mighty staff, heads into some brown area with rocks and dirt and evil pacing sin wizards. He starts shooting Ws at enemies and rocks and dirt in an effort to make them all disappear so he can have a clear path to...the end of each "puzzling level". These Ws represent the "Word of God" (Word of God! Get it?), which has the strange ability to penetrate inanimate objects as well as Dr. Bad Touch the Sorcerer, who wanders aimlessly (or is he looking for something to sin with?). Pick up all the "M" bottles, kill the foes, and uncover all the hidden objects under the dirt clumps and rock...clumps, and the end transporter will open. Watch that transporter in complete awe! It's amazing! No, I'm being sarcastic. Mario sliding down the flagpole looked as cool as the transporter.

If you look below this paragraph, you'll also see a screenshot from the Genesis version, indicating that no matter what generation of system you play this on, it's just gonna stay as pantloadish as it always was. I hate to bash games, but this IS 1991...the Dig Dug era is over, Wisdom Tree. Actually, the screenshot below is after he gets touched by a sinner...he prays for survival, but loses a life anyway. What's THAT telling you? Anyway, the graphics and sound are...at least up to Wisdom Tree standards! Heh. Seriously, if you really want to try out a Wisdom Tree game, I'd recommend this one over the rest. It just struck me as the best. But I'd easily accept that "Athena" game by SNK over this one easily. Ouch! What a severe burn that turned out to be.


Want to know the good news? Graphics by Nina again! Want to know the bad news? The game is terrible. Didn't mean to hurt your feelings, Vance K. (Check out my high score!)

Moses must use the "Word of God" to break any obstacle blocks in his way. Wouldn't a hammer do the same job just as effectively? Or perhaps a very thick book? Or even a really really REALLY old stale muffin? ...Why does it look like the Word of God is actually just a laser?

I just killed Moses. How sad he looks. Wait...he's praying! Good for you! (Note that my score is still zero.) Too many goats.

Why did they move the score bar to the bottom? I guess they wanted to switch things up! We certainly don't want a game like this losing its freshness!
