Run Jesus Run

About Run Jesus Run

A short (10-second) collection of mini-games derived from the New Testament, this game puts the player in charge of a retro-styled Jesus Christ, harnessing player reflexes and platform-game problem-solving (run, jump) to re-enact Scriptural verses Luke 4:1-13, John 6:1-14, Mark 6:45-52, Matt 5:1-2, Mark 8:22-26, John 11:1-44 and Matt 8:1-4.

The left and right keyboard arrows are used to move, while the space bar is brought into play to work miracles (or "do Jesus things" as it says in the introduction, where it also notes that the goal of the 10-second gameplay session is "to save the humanity.")

Following the brief series of chunky-pixel screens, the player's overall success is measured by how many Apostles were swayed by the player's acrobatic feats. [source:mobygames]
