About this game

It's never too early to start programming! Lightbot Junior gets your little ones 'coding' within minutes! As featured in the New York Times [1], TechCrunch [2], and Forbes [3].

Lightbot Junior is specifically designed for ages 4-8, and is an easier version of the popular Lightbot: featuring a gentler learning curve and less complex puzzles. You can play as Boybot or Girlbot as you solve puzzles that use game mechanics that are rooted in Computer Science concepts.

Lightbot Junior lets players gain a practical understanding of basic concepts like writing instructions, debugging problems, simple procedures and loops, just by guiding a robot with commands to light up tiles and solve levels.

Teachers worldwide are choosing Lightbot first out of other games and software when introducing their students to programming.

Lightbot Junior features 42 levels and lets you play in English, French, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Norwegian, Slovenian, Romanian, Indonesian, German, Polish, Danish, Croatian, Dutch, Slovak, Czech, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Thai, Hindi or Swedish! Just hit the associated flag icon on the main screen to select a language!

Lightbot JR now features multiple save slots and separate progress tracking for multiple players. Multiple players can advance at their own pace in their own save slot, and also compete on number of levels finished, number of stars collected and number of overall commands used to complete the game (Lower score=better)

WAY too fast for young children! The concept is good, but the commands go way too quickly with too much going on at once. If this was my app, I would have a "one step at a time" speed that highlights individual commands as they're sent to the lightbot, with a pause between each command. (Like have each command pop up to centre screen, fade, then act.) As it is, my 4 y.o. daughter is having a hard time making the connection between the commands and the actions... That's sort of the whole point!

I love this simple and really fun game. And that it really teaches proper programming concepts without having to be able to read.
