There is a free game available for all mobile devices called Guardians of Ancora. It takes you on an adventure through Bible stories. It's 100% free, with NO in app purchases and is Biblically faithful. It is aimed at 8-11 year olds, and I have to confess is quite good fun!! (yes, I've played it - Bx)
