A look at several websites that offer free Christian Games Online; Part 2 in a series on Christian gaming
We took a look at the popularity of video gaming in our previous article, Christian Video Games 101. Christian games are definitely popular, but most video games come with a price tag. Online gaming for Christians is another option for some fun games, and there are quite a few sites that offer Bible-based games for free.
Free Christian Online Gaming Sites
The following sites are among many sites that provide online games for believers at no cost:
Superbook from the Christian Broadcasting Network, Inc. offers at least 21 online games, most, but not all,) with Bible based themes. Bug Out, for instance, allows kids to match bugs by color and pattern and has no spiritual message. It’s just simple fun.
Another site with free Bible games for kids is Christianity Oasis. There you can play hangman, trivia, quizzes and puzzle and other fun Bible-based games.
New Site Offers Over 100 Free Games
The new gaming site Plays.org has just opened up a category for free religious games at the suggestion of Christian Activities. The site offers numerous other colorful online games for free. Their category-based navigation is located in their footer for their game collection which includes puzzles, quizzes and education games as well as zombie, sword and shooting game. So far the site offers well over 100 fun games, and they are adding more free games to the site daily to keep expanding it.
To date, they have only introduced two Bible games on the site, but as the site grows, more Bible-based games should be added. None of the games looked offensive. “Mr Bullet Ricochet Gun Shooter,” where the player tries to shoot a cartoon man around obstacles, is perhaps the most “violent.” In fact, some 30 games are shooter-type games. Ten cat games were listed including the addictive “Swift Cats: Angry Birds Inspired Level Destruction Game” game, so maybe the Bible category of games will be fleshed out accordingly before too long if there are other requests for them.
Here is what Plays.org currently offers for Christian game play:
The first Christian game on the Plays.org site is actually an online coloring book based on the Bible. This app provides dozens of scenes from the Bible which children can color online. The coloring book can not only be colored online, but there is also a printable PDF for people who want to make print outs for students to color instead of playing the online game. The game is free to play here.
PDF and Word documents with all the images from the game are available at these links:
This second free game is a multiple choice 100-question quiz about the Bible that asks children questions about Bible characters, events and dates. Play it here.
Both games would be great for fun at home and for Sunday school and even VBS activities.
There are many other free online game resources for Christians found on other websites. Do a little research and see what you find. Good games can do a lot to keep your mind sharp and reduce stress.
