Bible Buffet teaches nothing about the Bible, but still provides the valuable lesson that anthropomorphic food is evil.
Up to four players tackle different food-themed lands, like “Salad Land” or “Fast Food Land” in a mix of board game and arcade title. You spin a wheel to determine how far your player moves on the board, with each land covering about eight to ten squares. Once you land on a square, you enter a world filled with foodstuffs. Blow them up a la Bomberman and gain “pounds” by eating their mangled corpses. There doesn’t seem to be a point to gaining weight, but hey, food tastes good, right?
Each square takes about thirty seconds to a minute to complete; good if you have several players. Unlike something like Mario Party which forces you to play with the computer when you’re alone, Bible Buffet lets you explore the board alone with no interruptions. Bible Buffet suffers from poor AI, repetitive levels, and pop quizzes that don’t give you the questions, but much like a real buffet, it’s a strangely compelling experience. You’ll want to know what types of food will attack you in Freezer Land or Liquid Land.
Just remember: the fattest person at the end of the game wins. This buffet suffers no string beans.
