As a parent, I am always on the lookout for two things: safe games for my children to play on their tablets, and sound teaching aids to help them learn the Bible. Guardians of Ancora is great on both fronts. Coming from Scripture Union, Ancora is a free game (with no hidden costs) for your tablet, that is aimed at 8-11-year-olds (but can be played by younger children). Set in the mythical world of Ancora, your character works their way through various levels, getting access to Bible stories, which you read, along the way.
The App is available in English and Welsh, as well as a few other languages.
Noah (Age 8) writes:
I love Ancora and have been playing it for the last six months. My brother and I like to play it and compare what stories we have learnt from the Bible and which levels we have been on. The game is really fun because you get to interact with the Bible in a game where you get to run around and do tricks, going to all kinds of different places. In every place, there is something really cool to do, like collecting objects. There are also parts where you can make posters, take quizzes and collect rewards. The game is easy to use but has different difficulty levels which make the game fun and challenging. When you play the game, it helps you learn about the Bible in a really active way.
