Heroes: The Bible Trivia Game

What is this game?

Heroes is a free Bible quiz game developed by the Seventh-day Adventist Church and published by Hope Channel. 

It effectively helps you learn the Bible by answering questions about the characters called “heroes.”

How did it start?

Heroes began as a 2-dimensional, comic-style trivia game in 2013.

It was played for more than 10 million minutes around the globe in 8 languages. And it opened doors to many other Adventist gaming apps.

Three years later, a Google search survey gave the development team a brilliant idea. It showed over 250,000 worldwide Google searches for “Bible trivia,” “Bible game,” and “Bible quiz” every month.

Also, they realized it would be better for the game to have an element of storytelling and adventure. And what better would it be if it were in 3D animation?

As such, they reengineered the game and released its second version on March 25, 2021.

What are its features?

  1. Manna and XP

Instead of coins, Heroes gives you manna to buy effects and level up your game. The idea was taken from the manna which God provided for the Israelites as daily food.

On the other hand, XPs or experience points, as in other games, serve as your score.

Together, the manna and XP increase as you get correct answers to each question. With this, you can buy more effects and unlock other Bible characters to play.

  1. Power effects 
  • Abraham effect – removes 2 of 4 choices to help you get the correct answer
  • Daniel effect – shows you the Bible verse hinting at the correct answer
  • Elijah effect – boosts your game by doubling your XP
  • Friday effect – doubles your manna for every correct answer
  • Jonah effect – skips a question you find difficult
  • Joshua effect – freezes time for 5 seconds so you can think further
  • Jesus effect – removes your errors and shows you the answer
  • Lazarus effect – gives you a second chance if you commit an error
  • Revelation effect – halves your match time if you get 12 correct answers
  1. Multiplayer mode

As in most video games, this mode allows you to play with your family or friends. 

Challenge their biblical knowledge and speed in a friendly competition!

What is this app?

As the name implies, Prayminder is an app that gives you prayer reminders as often as you need.

Brief history

It started from a simple conversation with the question, “How can we pray more?” It was inspired by the fact that most people neglect prayer because of busyness.

Hence, the couple thought of creating an app that would remind its user to pause for a while and pray.

Eventually, they released the first version but tested it for themselves in the meantime. Proving it very effective, they published it to the public in 2017.

As of now, there are over 4.5 million prayers registered through the app from 189 countries.
