As always, thank you for supporting Lightbot!
Love the app, the concept, and the order in which it teaches. Having studied three different programming languages in college, I wish I had played this game first. Even an adult could learn the basics of understanding programming from playing the game. I played the game all the way through to see what all it thought. I look forward to using this with my kids.
Easy to use. Scaffolded lessons for use without frustration. Will try with my students at school.
Great app, but...
I love this app. But The levels that get hard don't give you enough to learn to do them.
