Connection to id SoftwareEdit
There is an urban legend that id Software, angered with Nintendo of America's censorship in the SNES version of Wolfenstein 3D, gave the source code for that game to Wisdom Tree as part of a kind of "revenge" for them to make an unofficial clone to mock them. However the legend is not true: Wisdom Tree was an ordinary technology licensee, though id Software knew that this game would be an independent "rogue title" and not officially licensed by Nintendo. The game was not a commercial success, suffering from the lack of major marketing common to other Wisdom Tree titles. It was most commonly found in Christian bookstores.
The game itself is a straightforward modification of Wolfenstein 3D, with altered graphics and sounds; furthermore, Wolfenstein's subliminal morse code tappings permeate the game. The level layouts, weapons, and enemy behaviors in the SNES version are identical to Wolfenstein 3D, but the graphics were changed to reflect a non-violent theme. Instead of killing Nazi soldiers in a castle, the player takes the part of Noah, wandering the ark, throwing fruit and grain at stray animals in order to pacify them.
Super 3D Noah's Ark is a graphics-swap of Wolfenstein 3D. The gameplay is aimed at younger children. Noah's Ark includes secret passages, food, weapons, and extra lives. There are secret levels, and shortcut levels as well. The player eventually comes across a slingshot, and flings cantaloupe and watermelon at the larger bosslike animals, such as Ernie the Elephant and Carl the Camel
