We got this for my son’s 10th birthday. He wants to learn to code and it’s a really creative way for kids to learn the concepts without them spending more time in front of screens! It gets progressively more difficult and has even been a challenge for my programmer husband. The avatar and portal are a little large for the booklet would be my only criticism.
It’s got fairly easy-to-follow directions for how to start each puzzle and you can always look at the answer key to check your solution. We are impressed with it and would recommend it to others.
I bought this for my 6-year-old son. He loves working his way through the levels, but it is challenging enough that he won’t get through it quickly. As a matter of fact, I am enjoying working my way through the levels, too. Some are more challenging than others.
I like that my son can play on his own or we can sit side-by-side and try to get them individually while spending time together. Neither he nor I am getting bored with this game! I recommend it to anyone who wants to teach principles of coding without using electronics, and to anyone who loves solving puzzles (might be a tad easy for an adult experienced in puzzle-solving though).
