''Super 3D Noah's Ark'' is a [[FirstPersonShooter first-person shoo...]] I mean, a [[LighterAndSofter first-person feeder]] released in 1994 for the UsefulNotes/{{SNES}} by the Christian video game developer Wisdom Tree. It is based on the ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' engine. The player takes control of Noah, the builder of the Ark from the Biblical Literature/BookOfGenesis, who has managed to populate his Ark with two of each type of animal in time before the flood. However, the animals have gotten hungry and aggressive, and it's up to Noah to journey around the entire Ark, feeding the animals in a rather unusual way -- by shooting food into their mouths with a variety of slingshots.

* DifficultySpike: The game gets a ''lot'' more difficult in the fourth episode and beyond.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: Unlike in ''Wolfenstein 3-D'', you keep all your weapons and ammo between episodes. This makes the later levels a bit more forgiving, as you aren't forced to start every episode with the Small Feed Launcher, and struggle to stay alive while you try to find the better weapons all over again.


* BearsAreBadNews: The final boss of the game is Burt the Bear. However, given the game's nonviolent theme, all he does is spit at you.

* GuideDangIt: Unless you're ''really'' brushed up on your bible knowledge, the quizzes are this. SaveScumming won't do much good either, since the game will just randomly pick another question if you attempt to do so.

to:

* EnemyRollCall: Just like in ''Wolfenstein 3-D'', the SNES version ends on this. It is also modified so the animals run up to Noah in addition to this. The PC remaster retains this.

* MobileShrubbery: Bert the Bear hides in a bush for the first part of his boss fight. As he's this game's Hitler, this is a stand-in for the mech suit.



* OstrichHeadHiding: The ostriches appear to do this when they are put to sleep.



* UnnecessarilyLargeVessel: The Ark, apparently, is not only huge but also [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior full of giant nearly-empty corridors and rooms]].

* UnnecessarilyLargeVessel: The Ark, apparently, is not only huge Ark. Of course, it was pretty big in the Bible story, but it's also [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior full of giant nearly-empty corridors and rooms]].

Given the game's kid-friendly theme, all the gameplay is nonviolent: the guns have been replaced with food-launching slingshots, the animals don't die but merely fall asleep when fed enough, and all animals (save for goats) attack by spitting at Noah from a distance.

* SurpriseDifficulty: Despite it being a children's game, the gameplay can get surprisingly brutal on later levels, as enemies can take off a huge chunk of your health if they surprise you at short distances.

It was the only commercial SNES game in the United States that did not have an official Nintendo license. As a result, it could only be run by stacking an officially licensed game cartridge on top of the ''Noah's Ark'' cartridge.

!!This game contains the following tropes:

* AbnormalAmmo: What else to say about using slings to shoot feed, cantaloupes and melons right into the animals' mouths?
* BearsAreBadNews: The final boss of the game is Burt the Bear. However, given the game's nonviolent theme, all he does is spit at you.
* DifficultySpike: The game gets a ''lot'' more difficult in the fourth episode and beyond.
* TheMoralSubstitute: A Christian-themed, Bible-teaching, non-violent version of ''Wolfenstein 3-D'', of all things.
* SufferTheSlings: Noah's weapon of choice. Even though, unusually, Noah uses slings to launch food instead of attack the animals directly.
* SuperTitle64Advance: The "Super" part in the title comes from "Super Nintendo".
* SurpriseDifficulty: Despite it being a children's game, the gameplay can get surprisingly brutal on later levels, as enemies can take off a huge chunk of your health if they surprise you at short distances.
* UnnecessarilyLargeVessel: The Ark, apparently, is not only huge but also [[UnnecessarilyLargeInterior full of giant nearly-empty corridors and rooms]].
* VegetarianCarnivore: The final boss is a bear who nevertheless has no problem being fed seed and fruit.
