Awesome, with one recommendation I play this with my two year old (lots of help needed, but she loves it). My one recommendation is an efficiency quotient. I want to know the fewest commands the level could be completed in to compare against my score. I think this would also help stretch the gameplay for those users frustrated by the game's brevity. Will be upgrading to Lightbot Jr. soon.
Challenging yet fun introduction to coding I love how straight forward the direction, it's visually simple and not too wordy. I haven't finished the last level though and this game has been sitting in for a while because I don't want to look for the solution online, I wish there's an option to ask for some hints without giving out solutions.
Fantastic! Make no mistake: it's about only one hour of game, exactly as the title says, so one cannot underrated it for that. It's a clear point. And it's one hour in which anyone can learn the basics of programming logic! It's the real thing, flow, procedures and loops. This game is nothing short of brilliant. If you want more levels buy the full Lightbot:Programming app. Congratulations to the developer. Would love to find something similar on electronics (*wink* to dev, would love to know if you do it ;)
A couple suggestions For young players (my daughter is 6), it would be helpful if the play speed (after pressing the green button) could be even slower - preferably with a short pause between each command. Also, if a command is specified that cannot be completed (eg "forward" when there are no tiles in front of you), halt the program rather than skipping the command - preferably highlighting the offending command in red. Otherwise a very good app.
I like it This game is hard that what makes it enjoyable. You can solve the puzzles with many solutions amazing app. (Some reviews of this game says it is "impossible" dont beleive them. They're just a bunch of 12 yr olds who cant solve puzzles)
This is a great app which seems like it should be accessible and enjoyable for kids. I haven't seen it in action with kids, yet, but I'm going to share it with the next one I see. Good variety of puzzles. Those who are looking for more should note that Lightbot has several other paid apps in the Play store.
Updated to the latest and greatest, fixed some bugs, updated visuals.
