Code Combat Game

Found an interesting way of learning a programming language. An RPG game where you equip gear to your character toon and collect diamonds.
The game has 4 languages to learn at the moment, which are:

  1. Python
  2. Javascript
  3. CoffeeScript
  4. Lua

The GUI interface looks pretty awesome and creative. Here are a couple of screenshots that I have tried playing it. You go straight to gameplay and it doesn’t really teach you the basics of programming. It’s asking you to type the code. E.g. hero.moveRight(); This is most suited for primary school kids. Coding for fun and a bit of some exposure. Maybe need some theory saying this is a function, class, etc?

Nevertheless, it seems like a fun way to learn. A great way to exposure your little kid to programming! Better start early when they are young. Wish this was available back at my time!

Progress

After a month studying programming for 8-12hrs per day. My mind finally gave in the last 2 days. I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Couldn’t think properly and had to reset. Currently learning JavaScript and it’s a pain in the ass but I will never give up! Now, I am revitalised  and back at it again!

Currently following Javascript Is Sexy site.

 

Happy Easter Everybody!

We are not defeated by adversity but by the loss of the will to strive. However devastated you may feel, so long as you have the will to fight on, you can surely triumph.
