This game is based on the graphic novel Luther: Echoes of the Hammer that tells the story from birth to death, of Martin Luther who headed a revolution that changed the world.
Because Luther would not recant what was written in his books he was considered an outlaw. Instructions were given to kill Luther and any of his followers on sight and anyone caught buying, printing, selling, reading, or owning any of Luther’s writings would be arrested and put to death. In Luther: Echoes of the Hammer – The Game Luther is on his way home to Wittenberg. Luther’s friend George Spalatin knows that Luther‘s life is in danger and has devised a plan to kidnap Luther to ensure his safety. You have been asked to catch up with Luther by horseback, capture him, and take him to Wartburg Castle for protection. The road to catch Luther is not clear, obstacles will be in your way.
This game provides an educational and appreciation of Luther and the Reformation in a fun, comfortable format. It's perfect for adults, children, and classroom use.
I genuinely applaud the effort to make a game that has a connection to Martin Luther. This can barely be called a game, and has almost no actual info about Luther or the reformation either. It should be called "Temple Run: The Knight on a Horse in a Generic Medieval Setting Sidescroller 2mn Adventure Game" Why not just make an interactive version of the graphic novel it seems to be based on? Why even put this out there? Why?!
Fun for a FREE app!
Very educational and information on the Reformation & Martin Luther is accurate.
The game is completely opposite of anything that Luther would have wanted. I think that this game is a disgrace to Luther and his accomplishments. This game doesn't even deserve my 1 star!!!
