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:
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!
