About this game

Run and jump into coding!

SpriteBox is a unique puzzle-platformer; a mix of exploration and learning to code.

By giving Sprite programs of instructions to follow, you can advance through unique worlds and help free Sprite's bottled-up friends.

During your adventure, you'll learn to sequence commands, change parameters, debug faulty logic, and use simple to complex loops to solve problems.

Once comfortable with Icon-based coding, you can choose to play SpriteBox using real Java syntax.

A completely new take based on Blockly's design, Java mode look like real code... because it is real code! Using a preset list of commands created specifically to be interacted with on mobile, you can explore how Java code both looks and acts in the real world.

SpriteBox comes with 20 puzzles to solve, and 150 stars to collect. Are you up to the challenge?

Exceptional. Aside from the movement, which I've never enjoyed on mobile in any game, this was a short and enjoyable game I would reccomend. The puzzle gradient felt smooth, and the style was friendly. The rudeness of the helper is meant to encourage a feeling of competitiveness, to get you to prove to them your ability.

Good learning tool. As a freshman computer science major (term 2) I think that for younger audiences this is perfect [block coding 👍]. In addition, even when using the java syntax portion of the game, it is still easy to operate as the java code is also in blocks. However, I do think the game may need some way to indicate when to use what or have some hint system. I found the game easy since I have past experience with java, but for the introduction of nested loops there should be more examples

Awesome app! My 5 year old was able to complete the game with minimal assistance. I also tried it out and liked it. My only complaint is the length, it really is under an hour of game play
