Noah has been commanded by God to put two of each animal aboard his ark to save them from the flood. However, unhappy people from around the world have captured different animal species, preventing Noah from completing the task assigned to him. Noah will need to visit these different locations and free the animals from the people holding them captive.
Noah's Ark is a side scrolling action game. As Noah, you must choose which level from several world locations to play. Once in a level, Noah can move left or right, duck, jump, and fire pellets directly in front of him. These pellets can defeat enemy creatures and uncover hidden items. At the end of each level, Noah will encounter a stronger enemy creature-a "boss," if you will-who must be defeated. Noah's ultimate goal is to rescue the designated captive animals listed for each level to succeed in his task.
