By simply guiding a robot to light up tiles to solve levels, players cultivate a real understanding of procedures, loops, and conditionals; core concepts to Computer Science. Perfect for guys and girls alike: you can play as Boybot or Girlbot!
New York Times says : "Lightbot is great fun and does a surprisingly thorough job of introducing some pretty complex principles of programming." - (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/28/technology/personaltech/get-cracking-on-learning-computer-code.html)
TechCrunch says : “Lightbot offers an easy way for kids to learn concepts like loops, if-then statements, and the like, without typing” - (http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/26/light-bot-teaches-computer-science-with-a-cute-little-robot-and-some-symbol-based-programming/)
Parents and educators around the world are choosing to use Lightbot first to introduce their children and students to coding.
This One Hour Coding '14 version features 20 levels to complete and can be played in the following languages:
English, French, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Romanian, Norwegian, Slovenian, Indonesian, German, Polish, Danish, Croatian, Slovakian and Czech!
There are NO in-app purchases in Lightbot.

iplaycode is simple and easy to play:
2. Select level
3. Press button to respond the quiz
4. Awarding the score
The game can be back to home, i.e. start, and check the menu, i.e. play again. The game is suitable for the mobile interface as all the necessary information is on the page.
For the each question, the user can get help at any stage, no matter the answer is right or wrong, and the user can always get an explanation.
At this stage, the contents have covered the most parts of procedural programming in C++, compatible for both C and C++ learners.
Object oriented programming will be included in advanced level in iplaycode v.2.

The Foos - Code for an Hour edition is an introduction for those who have no experience whatsoever programming, and is all-ages friendly! That means anyone from 5 to 99 can play, have fun and learn real programming logic.
Program and code your way through exciting puzzle adventures in fun new world using cartoon cops, builders and ninjas!
Players master key computer science concepts on our puzzle levels then create silly and creative interactions in our "Toy Box" areas. Create complex interactions between characters on your iPad with our easy to use system. Programs can be set to run when characters like the ninja and chef are touched or bump into each other.
The Foos - Code for an Hour Edition is created specifically for The 'Hour of Code', a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week [csedweek.org] and Code.org [code.org] to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.
Parents and teachers are using THE FOOS first when introducing their kids and students to programming, coding and computer science. Parents can follow codeSpark on Facebook for unplugged coding activities.
There are NO in-app purchases in THE FOOS.
THE FOOS: Code for an Hour has 24 levels and 3 distinct “Toy Box” areas for creative play.
What do Children learn?
THE FOOS is based on curriculum from MIT and Exploring Computer Science at UCLA. Core concepts include: Pattern recognition, problem solving, sequencing, spatial visualization, algorithmic thinking, how to debug programs, loops and conditionals. Kids also become more persistent and creative in their pursuit of solutions.
Who are THE FOOS?
THE FOOS are funny, happy creatures that inspire kids to create and collaborate through programming, in a visual, intuitive and imaginative way that builds critical computational thinking skills for future success.
THE FOOS is inspired by visual programming languages such as Scratch from MIT, Alice from CMU, and other ‘beginner’ programming languages like Logo, SmallTalk, and Squeak.
