Babel Rising 

 

How educated are you to the historical accounting of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11? Babel Rising is loosely based on that historical accounting. And I do mean loosely. In the historical accounting, a group of men built a city, and starting building a tower into the heavens. They wanted to make a name for themselves. God confused the languages, and they had to cancel the project. In Babel Rising you get to play God, and reign down your wrath on people trying to build a tower up to you. There are earthquakes, lightning, floods, instant deaths, and more. Babel Rising tells the players to kill the heretics. No getting to confuse their languages though.

The wraths of God look pretty impressive in Babel Rising. The people die in all kinds of gruesome manners which is relayed visually. I would have thought we could confuse their languages at least to buy some time. I was impressed with how the tower looked generally. The top of the tower looked odd to me though.

The music in Babel Rising is very powerful and majestic. The sounds of the disasters we get to unleash on these people sound really good too. Of course destroying so many people did wear on me, even though this is a video game and not real. The thunderbolt references Zeus so Babel Rising seems to have grabbed from various sources.

There are numerous levels, and modes in Babel Rising. I downloaded Babel Rising during a Christmas sale where it was free. The campaign mode costs more money though. There are apps that I enjoy playing long after I review them. Unfortunately Babel Rising is not one of them. I will explain much more in the game play section.

The people keep coming, and they build really fast. The problems I ran into in Babel Rising is the game is not always accurate. I would try and hit some of them with lightning only to see it hit the level below. It would miss them, and that became extremely irritating very quickly. I also believe many of these powers load way too slow. I could hold them off for a short time, but they kept getting progress.

Babel Rising is a step in the right direction. People can get an interest in the historical accounting of which this is based, and read the Holy Bible to learn more. My main concern is the prime lesson in Babel Rising is God is sitting up there trying to destroy us, and we can do whatever we want in spite of Him.
