“Best App to learn Programming/Coding!When this first went up as a Flash App in PC, I went ahead and got it to help me with my coding skills, and plus I like puzzles, and even though I’m not into any Programming anymore this still is a really great puzzle app. Please add more levels and functionality!”
“Challenging and fun I initially introduced the game to my son last year, when he was 7. He liked it but found it a bit too challenging after the first 4 or 5 levels. I probably should have tried the jr version first. I didn’t push it but he recently came back to it on his own. He is currently obsessed with it, which has me delighted as I think this is a brilliant app – the cute design & gameplay cleverly weave in the lessons, and being able to toggle the “gender” of the robot is a nice touch..”
“Great game! Does exactly what it says on the tin! Its perfect for a kick starter for picking up the whole basic concept of programming.”
“Fun puzzles for learning to code. Ideal for beginner coders. It would be great if the music could be turned off and keep sound effects..”
“Mind bending puzzles A touch of programming logic and great level design make a really good game. Beware, it gets challenging for adults 😉 I’d have liked a “slow-mo” speed option at times.”
“Very fun As a comp sci student, I had loads of fun with this. There could have been more levels but for someone new to programming it should be plenty.”
