Lightbot is a programming puzzle game- a game whose game mechanics require using programming logic to solve levels.
Simply guiding a robot to light up tiles and solve levels using commands, Lightbot cultivates a real understanding of procedures, loops, and conditionals for players.
“Lightbot offers an easy way for kids to learn concepts like loops, if-then statements, and the like, without typing or coding”- TechCrunch (http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/26/light-bot-teaches-computer-science-with-a-cute-little-robot-and-some-symbol-based-programming/)
Educators around the world are choosing to use Lightbot first when introducing their students to programming, coding and Computer Science.
Lightbot features 50 levels and 20 challenge stars to collect and is a must-have for puzzle enthusiasts of any age.
Lightbot can be played in the following languages: English, French, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, Traditional and Simplified Chinese, Romanian, Norwegian, Slovenian, Indonesian, German, Polish, Danish, Croatian, Dutch, Slovak, Czech, Greek and Italian!
There are NO in-app purchases in Lightbot.
What's New in Version 1.4.0
We thank you for your feedback and support for Lightbot!
Finally! Playable character Girlbot added! As well as, new language instructions added in German, Polish, Danish, Croatian, Dutch, Slovak, Czech, Greek and Italian!
Also covers a few graphics bugs that dealt with non-HD imagery appearing on HD devices.
I suppose one could learn some basic programming concepts from Lightbot: sequential execution of instructions, conditional branching, procedure calls. But you won’t learn anything about the larger programming concepts of objects or inheritance. Nevertheless I give it 5 stars because they’re simply great puzzles. It took me a couple weeks to work through all the challenge levels, and it was a lot of fun for $5. More like this, LightBot!
I’ll add to the praise
Simple to use with age-appropriate challenges, this puzzle game teaches basic programming concepts. It’s like Apple’s old Logo refreshed for the iPhone and the iPad. My twins love it, and my daughter loves that there’s a “girl” robot. Well done, LightBot!
My daughters both love to mess around with Lightbot! Their school uses it to introduce computer coding concepts to kindergarteners and first graders each week and all the kids seem to enjoy it.
