Super Noah's Ark 3-D is a First Person Shooter based on the Wolfenstein engine with a biblical twist.

As Noah, the player travels around the Ark feeding the restless animals in order to put them to sleep; this is achieved by firing feed (ammo) at them using a variety of hand catapults.

The SNES version is largely a reskin of the SNES version of Wolfenstein 3D, the only notable difference being slightly altered behaviour for a couple of bad guys. Even your weapons are reskins that behave exactly like the guns from Wolf3D; Noah must be very skilled to operate a catapult at the speed of a machine gun!.

The PC version however, while still a reskin of Wolf3D in gameplay has some more advanced features; higher resolution graphics (along the lines of the Jaguar and 3DO versions of the game, albeit with all 8 directions like the original PC version), midi music support, floor textures (like Blake Stone) and a new game play feature in the form of a question mark pickup; picking one up pauses the game and brings up a random multiple choice question about content in the bible. Answer the question correctly and you get a bunch of ammo and points.

Rumor has it that the Wolfenstein 3-D engine was given to Wisdom Tree by id Software as a kind of 'revenge' against Nintendo for all the censorship that Wolfenstein 3-D had to go through to be on the Super Nintendo.

The Piko Interactive 2013 release for the SNES uses a standard North American SNES cartridge and, therefore, can work directly in a North American SNES without requiring another cartridge.
