Am I a man or am I a muppet? If I'm a muppet then I'm a very manly muppet!
Not only is it a standard roll'n'move with no real decisions of any kind, but the theology of this thing (being a Good Person earns you favor with God and gets you into Heaven, prayers LITERALLY pile up in a Cosmic Mailbox and the person with the most prayers gets more credit... sigh!) stinks.
I put it in the database in the interest of completeness, not because I in ANY way recommend it.

Re:The Game is Just Plain Bad
Some of the details are even scarier than you suggest. From what I remember (before giving it to you as a perverse form of torture) the game really does reward being truly terrible on occasion, as you seem to need the money from taking the evil path in order to win.
But I do think that this is one of those games that would be highly ranked on lists of most offensive games, if anyone else had ever heard of it. Most of the games I see on those lists are disturbing topics treated with generally light and fluffy intent.
This one has almost as much seriousness as the incredibly scary Chick Comics.
As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...
Boy, I will agree that Jack Chick is one scary individual, but at least the very foundation (only faith in Jesus Christ can get your ticket to Heaven punched - Galatians 2:16) of his message is sound (from a Christian point-of-view). It's just his "It's-My-Ball-So-You-Must-Play-By-MY-Rules" approach to conveying the Gospel message that is wanting as it puts off believers and non-believers alike.
The basis of the Salvation game is just so very dangerously wrong (again, from a Christian point-of-view). Salvation is a gift, not something you can earn. Only faith in Jesus Christ and acceptance of the free gift of salvation can get you to Heaven. Good works come along for the ride and are (almost) icing on the cake (see James 2 for a discussion of the dangers of faith without works).
