What a little puzzle/programming gem!


I wish I had this when I was first being introduced to computers! This would be a great way to introduce children (or anyone, for that matter) to programming concepts, by letting them learn step-by-step and then experiment and debug their procedures. It’s also a fun diversion for experience programmers.

Beautifully done!


I can’t say enough good things about this game. It is simple enough at the beginning to draw you in and function as it’s own tutorial. However, it does not stay simple for long, and draws you into wonderful math/programming puzzles. At $10, it’s a great deal.

Absorbing fun


This is a fun little programming game; my only complaint is that it’s too short. It would have been real nice to have introduced subroutines; in their absence, what this game is really teaching is Terrible Spaghetti Coding.
