I do remember this game from my childhood. As a kid, I had a lot of fun battling through the Cybers and saving the people trapped in darkness. Playing this game again, I can only come to one conclusion: Young me was either easily amused or had a temporary stroke of idiocy. To give Captain Bible credit, it IS one of the better religious-themed games I've played. Granted, there's not too much in the way of competition. I've noticed that in both games and movies, religious themes tend to suffer the same problem as ones with environmentalist themes: the message is too heavy handed, even bordering on blunt force trauma. Captain Bible also suffers from extremely repetitive gameplay. The formula is basically 1) Find Bible verse, 2) find lie that Bible verse talks about to defeat Cyber, 3) Repeat ad nauseum. Combat involves hiding behind your shield until the Cyber's painfully obvious weak spot opens up and then finishing them in one or two hits. Occasionally this is switched up, and there are stronger versions of some monsters, or you run through super-fast "Jump Tunnels" and have to dodge your way through charging Cybers (who for some reason make oinking noises when they pass you...not sure what's up with that...). Then you save the citizens of the city one by one and defeat the evil nauseated Eye of Sauron, er, I mean, the Tower of the Deception, by using Robby the Robot's steroid-enhanced, fist-laser blasting cousin. Overall, the experience leaves you feeling...well, unfulfilled would be a good word. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone over the age of 8 or 9, but it was a nice trip down memory lane for me.

An objective review:
I have (semi) fond memories of playing this as a kid, thinking it was pretty cool at age 7-8 or so.
In retrospect it's actually one of the better of the few Christian video games that I played, though that's not really saying a whole lot.
The game has good graphics and artwork for a DOS game, and can a little enjoyable for the first hour or so. However the biggest con is how mind-numbingly repetitive it is.
The entire gameplay basically boils down to - "find Bible verse - match correct verse to the correct "Cyber Lie" - defeat Cyber - find Bible verse again... wash, rinse repeat" - and completing the entire game could take anywhere from 10-25 hours (depending on the difficulty, since the levels are larger on higher difficulties) - so after a fairly short time, the game will just end up feeling like a chore.
To spice things up, they throw in some "Punch Out" style combat sections when you battle the Cybers - however the controls are bad and the enemies are too easy - so these really just boil down to mashing the attack key - not to mention you can simply go back to a "chapel" and restore any "faith" (equivalent of HP) you lost an infinite amount of times after each battle, further eliminating the challenge.
The game has a small number of music tracks - while the music isn't terrible, most of the levels just use a single 30 second track looping over and over, so hearing this for hours on end will quickly get old. The sound effects on the other hand are just plain awful, and I recommend just turning these off (when I played this as a kid, I was lucky and the sound effects apparently never worked on my computer).
While this game is at least functional, and has somewhat impressive graphics and artwork for its era, it's going to become very boring very fast - I don't recommend other than for very young children, or someone who wants to play just for nostalgia's sake.

I need help! everything is ok, until it stop at the part where it supposed to start...I can see the begining, but then, after the text where it says they decide to call.......and goes to the next image where it says capitan bible, there, that is the problem, I can see the falling water, i mean, it´s still working because there is movement, but I can do anything else in that screen. I´ve tried everythin with the mouse and the keyboard, but still doesn´t work. If any of you know something I would be too thankful

Some games made to work on Win 32(95, NT, etc.) will not work in XP or later. If you're using XP, try running it in compatibility mode for 95. I don't have Vista or Windows 7, so I couldn't tell you what to do in that case. On a different note, if a program is made for Windows 3.1, use DosBox.
