The Spanish Version is done thanks to Alex, Poncho, Stone and Jenny. We need to refresh the demo still.
Also, Steve is working on make some new textures that will help jazz up the looks of whichever maps we assign those to.
And some excellent artists are helping to spruce up the black and white Bible Illustrations, coloring them! Many thanks to Antonio, Richard, Eden, Shawn, Ree, and Billy.

Do you have a Tablet PC? You will need to make this one change so that Parables will run smoothly.
Family Friendly Gaming assigned a score of 98 out of 100.
The Dove Foundation assigned it four out of five Doves and said:
The stories throughout this game are great for learning what Jesus wanted us to get from His parables. They ask questions to get you to think a little deeper than just listening to the story.
I personally liked this game because it has classic Bible stories with a great lesson to be learned from each one. With any 3D game the graphics aren’t that great. But the game play is very well done. If you have the means I highly recommend picking one up.

Interactive Parables - Screen Shots
Rolling barrels will squish you as well!
Some maps will put your jumping to the test. Remember that you can do short jumps by walking and then jumping versus running and jumping.
Each map has a different look about it as well as different challenges.
Catch a ride on a zeppelin to ride to areas on the map that may be hard to get to. Some other shots of the Zeppelins.
The Levels/Maps can be multi-level as seen in this "Drum Factory" map. Here is another view of Drum Factory.
Fiery Darts and Large Boots are just many of the obstacles to avoid.
Some maps have force fields that have to be navigated around.
Be sure to visit the hearts as they restore your health and save your progress.
Narrow plank ways can be a challenge and be sure to avoid the large walking boots.
On the Chimneys level, one better not be afraid of heights! Lots of fun jumping, puzzling platforms that disappear, and more. Another screen below.
If you are trying to get the maximum amount of points, be sure to gather all the gold plus signs.
If you gather all five gems in a level, you can complete the map and win a crown. Thanks to Paul Bury for Screen Shot.
