Guardians of Ancora Game Review
Our boys love Guardians of Ancora! This is why we love it for them:
Getting the Word of God to our boys and regular engagement with the Bible DAILY!! The boys ask to play this game regularly and we get to reward them online for doing so. They are really learning true bible content and not just fluff and entertainment. Everything about this game is biblically-based. Even the title means a keeper for the Anchor which is Christ. It was developed in the UK, but is spreading like wildfire!
The game is not cheesy. It is completely dynamic with amazing cinematic color, movie-like musical scores and it is extremely easy to interact with from the very beginning. They boys would say that is is EPIC...lol!
You can choose your own character! I love this feature because, honestly, you can be yourself with your skin color and choice of hair and outfit. Letting our boys be in the Bible as themselves is priceless! As a family, we each have our own unique character to play with and can communicate with each other by making posts. To "see yourself" in the Bible story is amazing and a lifelong memory.
It is FREE!! Yes, I would totally pay for this Bible game, but having it free is truly a blessing.
It is SAFE!! There are no commercials or spam in this game. It is a secure playing environment and that is surely a relief with all the mess on youtube and other (even christian) online-based activities. As parents, we can walk away from the game device feeling assured that their eyes are protected.
There are quizzes! Not only do the boys have a chance to learn bible stories, but they earn more points by answering detailed questions based on the content (and it is NOT that easy either). Our boys are about tween age now, and this is appropriately challenging for them and us as parents!
This game does not take up tons of data! As complex as the worlds that you get to discover are, this game does not take scores of data or bandwidth to play. It is available on IOS, Android devices or Kindles. Did I mention that it is FREE as well??
The website is phenomenal! There is so much additional content available for this game. There are multiple bible plans on Youversion that go along with the game and extra devotionals on the website. There are also many activities to do with your children at home based on all the lessons. It is a homeschoolers dream come true for Bible curriculum!
We can cast it! If you have a google dongle or some casting technology at home, everyone can watch! It makes the game more of a family activity instead of your child learning alone. It makes for interesting conversation and lends to bible questions without parent pressure!
The narration is also right on point. Not only do the boys learn great bible stories, but they are also challenged within the story to apply what they are learning to their own lives. What parent doesn't want that?
We could go on....but we think you should try it our for yourself. The website is Guardians of Ancora. Come back and tell us what you think about Guardians of Ancora or any other online bible games or apps that you like :)
