16 Best Online Apps to Play With Friends Some Bible Games

Have you been playing Bible games alone? Want to do it with your friends?

In this blog, we will discover:

  • 11 gaming apps to play
  • 5 online applications to play or stream games

Let’s get to know these 16 best online apps to play with friends some Bible games!

Let’s Start With Actual Gaming Apps

1. Heroes: The Bible Trivia Game

Heroes game

Of course, let’s begin with our very own Bible trivia game—Heroes.

A brief background

Heroes was spearheaded by Sam Neves, Associate Director of Communications at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. It was co-produced by the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Hope Channel.

The game introduces you to various characters in the Bible. It presents them as “heroes,” hence, the name.

You get to know them more by answering trivial questions they themselves ask. For every correct answer, you get “manna” and “experience point” or XP.

As you earn more points, you level up and unlock more heroes to play.

Key features you can’t resist

a. 3D animation with music and sound effects

Compared to our pilot version, our latest one is enhanced with 3D animation technology.

Just look at the muscular body builds of the characters.

You may wonder if they actually looked like such in the Bible. But they were animated that way to give off the impression that they’re really heroes—strong and bold.

Aside from this, enjoy the anthem music and sound effects as you play! You can hear them throughout the game.

b. XP and manna

As we mentioned earlier, you get manna and XPs if you answer the questions correctly. The more manna and XPs you get, the more effects you can use to unlock more heroes.

Isn’t it interesting?

c. Power effects

  • Abraham Effect – eliminates 2 of 4 options to help you get the most potential answer
  • Daniel Effect – gives you the Bible verse that hints you to the correct answer
  • Elijah Effect – doubles your XP to level up faster and unlock new heroes
  • Friday Effect – doubles the manna you get from every correct answer
  • Jonah Effect – allows you to skip difficult questions anytime you like
  • Joshua Effect – freezes the timer for 5 seconds to give you more time to think
  • Jesus Effect – removes your errors and shows you “the way”
  • Lazarus Effect – gives you a second chance
  • Revelation Effect – halves the match time if you answer all questions correctly; shoots your way up to the leaderboard

Which one of these do you find the most interesting?

d. Multiplayer mode

With this feature, you can share the fun with your friends. Challenge them into a friendly competition.

Isn’t it more fun?

Its programs tackle Christian living, faith, health, relationships, the community, and many others.

f. The Big Questions

In the game, our heroes ask you questions. With this Bible study course, it’s the other way around.

Heroes answer people’s most frequently asked questions on the Internet. These questions come in 20 modules prepared for you. Each module is packed with biblical references and practical illustrations.

g. Prayer Request
