Ancora, founded hundreds of years ago by the first Guildmaster Othniel is a city of light powered by the Saga, a collection of all the amazing stories of the Bible. The City of Ancora provides light and life for the whole land. The Spire of Light which stands at the top of the city glows with the power of those stories.

The city of Ancora is still recovering from the attack of the Great Shadow, Ancora’s greatest enemy. Jealous of Ancora’s light and the power of the Saga, the Great Shadow launched an attack against the city to steal away its stories. He was defeated by the simplest of treasures a plain wooden cup which symbolises the greatest story in the whole saga, but many of the stories were lost in the attack and the Spire grew dim.

Ancora is now calling for young heroes to come forward and help rediscover these lost stories and bring the light back to the city! Will you answer the call?

Quality Game for young people

Rob Barron

This is a terrific app which uses quality graphics to engage young people and encourage learning about Jesus and being a Christian without being cringing! Kids won't be switching off and hiding their phones when friends come round, they'll be engaging in challenges together. It's good quality yet it's free and has no in-app purchases or adverts so every young person can download this at no cost whatsoever.
Can it be improved? Yes, there could be a few more challenges (currently 11 but I believe there are more in development) and there could be a touch more variety but this is partly a strength as well as kids can learn this quickly and achieve success without constantly having to learn new moves or whatever.
This is definitely still worth five stars as it stands as it's easily the best Christian-based game I've seen so far.

Good but needs more development


This game is aimed at 11-12 year olds, but as an adult I was interested to try it out. Scripture Union have done a brave thing by releasing a game that has direct Christian content and which tries to compete with the mass of games already around. And I would say they have almost got there but not quite. There are too many rough edges such as the repeated loading screens that you get when moving within the game game (and the bible facts are just too repetitive to be interesting after a while). Other issues are the awkward run and jump movements in the games, the lack of finesse in the paint section, and - in my version on iPad, the loading became too long to be usable (2 min plus). Needs more work, but could be great.

Good Game, could be Great!


This is an excellent start. Simple platform style gameplay, useful narration as you play, which for some children will be helpful reminders of what they are trying to do in the game. For some, it might capture their imagination about the exciting stories in the Bible. Improvements? It is early days, but when there are set scenes, could these be created in a different animated style, it would set them apart and make it feel less same year. Otherwise good effort, lots could be done with this going forward so encouraging people to get it and play it and feed back
