Excellent game, very interesting to learn programming, very addictive. I am also taking it into consideration to use with students. Maybe they can learn the basics of programming with it: Enrique Niclós Camarasa

this game is very good, but only for students of computers, it can help programming. But even for them is a bit difficult. The teacher will have to do very well to get students to do a good use of this game V. Palop
