Alternate names/hacks Super Noah's Ark 3D

Super 3D Noah's Ark (official title, also sometimes called Super Noah's Ark 3D) is a total conversion of Wolfenstein 3D by Wisdom Tree for both Super Nintendo and DOS.


The goal is to manage Noah's deeds in his ark for six days (i.e., episodes) by making a lot of nervous animals fall asleep. Despite the context, this game retains the same gameplay as the original Wolfenstein 3D, complete with secret walls and treasures; all levels in Super 3D Noah's Ark are new.

Gameplay differences between both versions are slight, with this game's interpretation of a rocket launcher (melon catapult) making an appearance on the PC as well. Although there is one considerable difference: the PC version has "Bible quizzes" which appear in many other Wisdom Tree games, where the player gets their health and ammo refilled in case the answer is correct. As well as that, this TC has more levels than the SNES port of Wolfenstein 3D, where there were three floors per episode. At the same time, the number of maps in both versions of Super 3D Noah's Ark are considerably smaller than in the actual Wolfenstein 3D.




  • This is one of the few known cartridges to have a slot to insert another cartridge, similar to the Lock-On of Sonic & Knuckles. Unlike Lock-On, the purpose of an extra slot in this case was to override the Super Nintendo's copy-protection chip which only ran games licensed by Nintendo (or the ones thought to be licensed by Nintendo).
  • This was the only unlicensed SNES game to be commercially released in the American market.
  • Though the game wasn't officially licensed by Nintendo, Wisdom Tree did legally license the source code to Wolfenstein 3D from id Software.
  • Piko Entertainment published a 2014 re-release of the game. The re-release is inside a normal SNES cartridge, unlike the 1994 version.
  • This game is one of the only games that use the SNSF music format, the other ones being Mario's Early Years, Wayne's World, and Lord of the Rings.
