As the game begins, cartoon animals go flying in the air, and players must slash their throats by swiping a finger across the screen.

Like many similar video games designed for the iPhone and the iPad—most notably the ubiquitous Fruit Ninja — this new game, too, is fast, fun, and unremitting: one misguided touch and it’s all over. But play for a moment or two, and you realize that the game’s rules—blemished animals must be spared, doves must be sacrificed by the pair—were set in place by the grandest designer of them all: The game you’re playing is based on the Bible’s most intricately detailed book.

Titled Leviticus!, the game, as its title suggests, is both irreverent and deeply faithful to the source text — all that business about doves and cows and purity is right there in the book. But whereas Leviticus is too thick with rules to make for a very compelling read, it’s perfect when played (read a review of the game in Tablet Magazine and Forward).

This game takes you through some of the Levitical rules playfully.  Just by playing for a few minutes, you will learn quite a bit about the laws of sacrifice and purity.

  • What animals are acceptable and how they should be sacrificed
  • Alternatives to herd animal sacrifice, like pairs of birds, meal offerings and fruits;
  • Procedures for the sprinkling of blood on the altar
  • The setting for sacrifice – the Tent of Meeting
