What looks like a puzzle game on the outside, at its core is a real experience in programming. But don't just take our word for it...
Light-bot offers an easy way for kids to learn concepts like loops, if-then statements, and the like without typing or coding.
It's quite remarkable that such a simple and elegant game can still manage to hide a lesson in almost every level.

Thank you for creating light-bot, a "game" that has my 7 year old loving programming.
My 2 kids, wife, and I spent hours last night going through the various exercises.
Parents and teachers worldwide are choosing Light-bot first when starting their kids on programming.
The reason why is simple: Light-bot is an engaging puzzle game, whose game mechanics are built directly on programming concepts. Moreover, it is super unintimidating.
Light-bot lets players gain a practical understanding of basic control-flow concepts like procedures, loops, and conditionals, just by guiding a robot with commands to light up tiles and solve levels.
You can get Light-bot for iPhone or iPad
or for Android phone or tablet
Or you can play the LITE version now, directly in your browser:
