Lightbot : Code Hour is a programming puzzle game- a game whose game mechanics require using programming logic to solve levels. This short teaser is meant to introduce players to programming who may have little to no experience. Anyone, anywhere, from grades K-12 can play, have fun and learn real programming logic!

Simply guiding a robot to light up tiles and solve levels using commands, Lightbot cultivates a real understanding of procedures, loops, and conditionals.

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

Lightbot : Code Hour features 20 levels. The follow-on Lightbot : Programming Puzzles features 50 levels and 20 challenge stars to collect for when you want more of a challenge!

Customer Reviews

Great game, bad learning curve

This game is cute, easy to learn to play and it requires some real thinking and intuition to solve levels. I want to love it.

The problem with this game is the difficulty curve is more like a cliff. I think the reason is that in order to solve challenges you have to figure out the optimal solution that the designer wants you to use. There’s no room for inefficiency.

Human Resource Machine is a similar game available on iOS that’s much more lenient on the player.

Great introduction

Easy to use. Scaffolded lessons for use without frustration. Will try with my students at school.

Can't Cancel

We got this to try it for free for seven days, but have decided it is not for us. My main issue is that there is no easy way to cancel. I am now cancelling my debit card to cancel because there is no intuitive way to cancel in game, or in settings.
