Lightbot Junior is specifically designed for ages 4-8, and is an easier version of the popular Lightbot: featuring a gentler learning curve and not-as-complex puzzles. You can play as Boybot or Girlbot as you solve puzzles that use game mechanics that are based on Computer Science ideas; Lightbot Junior cultivates a real understanding of sequencing instructions, debugging problems, creating reusable procedures and executing loops.

Educators around the world are choosing to use Lightbot first when introducing their students to programming, coding and Computer Science.

Lightbot Junior features 42 levels.

This version can be played 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, Swedish, Finnish and Hungarian! Just hit the associated flag icon on the main screen to select a language.

Lightbot 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.

There are NO in-app purchases in Lightbot Junior.

What's New in Version 1.6.7

Fixed a few minor bugs, including a major crash bug on iPhone 4 in which the game wouldn't start on that device.

As always, thank you for supporting Lightbot!

Great in the classroom

I volunteer in my 1st and 3rd graders classrooms once a week teaching computer programming and this app is wonderful. The best part of it, compared to other apps/websites, is that it encourages testing because it doesn't frown or tell you are wrong when you run an incomplete program. I was impressed that the 1st graders were able to work through all the puzzles up until loops (still not sure if teaching loops as recursion is the most applicable and/or ideal).

The other nice thing is that it is easy to use in the classroom where kids just grab a random ipad because there are unlocked puzzles at each level group, so they can mostly remember where they were and pick up from there and you don't have to fuss with logins, passwords, saving, etc.
