Awesome : ) It's fun and gives an awesome workout for your brain that makes you think harder, and it's perfect for kids young and older. It's the most awesome,fun,and challenging coding game ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joshua Zamrycki

Good clean programming fun A very nice and cute introduction to the mental processes needed to program - without actually coding. My 5 year old enjoys it. And so do I! Fun for the whole family.

Martin Hardaker

Great for the kids Just the right level of fun and challenge. Very worthwhile.

Gerald Fullam

Kid friendly into to procedural programming Teaches programming logic, not coding, in a fun way. Provides a good foundation for basic programming logic necessary to learn coding later.

Prateek Saraswat

Really nice I really enjoyed. I wish it had more levels. Once you are done with all the levels that excitement is gone. So deleting it. But great app.

Matt Dobson

Great fun Very good App, would definitely recommend. I enjoyed it at the age of 22, it's not just for kids.

Olivia C

OMG at our school we all try this with our teacher called Mrs Thomas and we completed all levels. I wish full version was free but I am going to pay for full version cos its so very good ❤❤❤

Andre Davis

My 7 year old loves it It's fun to watch him flex some logic muscles and get excited when he solves each puzzle.

Ryan Thompson

Amazing Did it at William Brookes School. I completed it in 45 mins I beat the Year 9 student

Evgeniy Ginzburg

Very good game I like the game a lot. My wife too, and she never programmed before seeing this game. The only minuscule note that "cycle" is not a cycle but recursive call. Functional programming for kids. Perfect!

daniel nunez

Excellent I think this is something that should be tought in pubkic school.this makes u want to learn programming

Toby Crewe

Great but... This app is great but I completed it in only 15 mins not 1 hour

Jack Adrian Zappa

Interesting but There want enough spaces to compete levels 1-5, 2-3 and 3-2. Edit: my bad, misunderstood instructions. Thought had to always point in direction before springing. Good game.

Tyson drumm

Super fun and easy. This is my first step to learning how to code applications and games. Easy instructions and simple controls make this game super fun. I will be downloading more of your things in the future.

Sky. AJ, stuff animals. sky

I played this game at my school Its a good game. It helps you learn.


Pretty cool. I finished it in about 7 minutes, but this is for younger kids, not a Computer Scientist, haha. Played out of boredom, and surprised by the potential for younger audiences. Keep up the good work. 5 stars for a successful app targeting the younger crowd. :)

Matthew Oliver

Great for everyone I write code all day and this game was even fun for me. It's still a little hard for my 5 year old, but the 7 year old really enjoyed it.

Donny Huff

Horrible No matter what u try, I cannot figure out how is use it. 1 star

Dav Mar

This is fun!!! Helps me to get into the logic state of mind before I start to code!

Kirk Gilmore

Great introduction to coding Are you wiring lines of code? No but for my 6 year old it has done wonders for his logical thinking which is great because he is not the best typist. The first step in programming is laying out what you want to do before you run your program.

Jeffrey Thomas

Awesome One can compare this to kids using a controller to play. But concepts like using procedures set this apart. My daughter is 4 and she breezed through level 1 with some guidance. Using procedures did not sink right away. But I see so much learning potential for older kids.

Shah Ali Newaj

Its just amaizing Gave this to my 6 years old daughter and she was like addicted to it. Finished the basic in 2 hours and went into proc. And unbelievably she got it on her own. Now she keeps playing it to get ready for loop!!

Manish Dhruw

Very good game One must try it, worth installing

H Lakha

Not bad... It needs to allow you to scroll through the levela, apps, etc.

Micah Adams

My 7 year old wants to code now. Love it. Teaches kids how to think ahead and use their brain. I appreciate the link it gave us after to studio codes website where my kid is learning about how to manipulate video games like flappy bird. Way to go studio code!!

Dave Watson

Very cool idea. I can see the benefit of this. Good idea to help someone get interested in programming.

Tim Shuttleworth

Fun for all the family This is a good tool for basic programming. You can see your mistakes and change the command

Ulf Leis

nice Awesome but a bit short but I became adicted. So I have to buy the full version and want to see how this is :)

Mark Gibson

Perfect Example This is such a great example of how to make an educational game! Fun, simple, and you would swear you're not even learning.

Dante Sotomayor

Awsome I play it on wednesday cause it's computer class.

Ricky Lee Kurniawan

Great Game Nice game to learn some basics in programming algorithm

Taelyn Tate

Love it Would give 10 stars. I highly recommend that people install thus game. Addicting but FUN

Arionna Stone

Awesome! I played this on the computer and it is exactly alike! Also, it improves brain skills. Recommended for all ages.

Samer Ghareeb

What an application really helpful thank you so much guys

Kaylie Lacoste

Lol Please this is so sad what the right thing to do I like to delete

Andrew Bank

Andrew Great coding game. No bugs that i saw.

Minerva Fair

I really like this game because it is a programming and it helps me lean to program.

Viorel Lazari

A really nice and inspiring game. Worth trying it!

mosemos -h

Well designed app not only the idea is amazing but also the app itself is well designed and implemented, my phone does not heat up when I am playing like what it roes with other apps

No Name Player

Asus Nexus 7 Played this programming game on Computer works fine, and on my tablet. Recommended for Download.

Алексей Синицкий

Excellent Very good . Please add new levels!

Александр Кривонос

The game is awesome!!! Very nice design and intuitive interface :)

Anton K

Great, except for "cycles" Very nice app. The 6-years old boy managed to pass the basics without much explanations. The procedures part required much more guidance. And I doubt he'll get the 'cycles' implemented via recursion - I think this concept needs to be reworked in the conventional way. IRL cycles are rarely programmed with a recursion. Anyway thank you very much for the efforts to bring programming basics to a wide audience.

Teena gillies

So fun Hard but I just loved it do fun and it is the best game iv ever played

Emily Holman

Great Great for learning how to think and to let your brain be puzzled

Justin Courtney

Awesome, with one recommendation I play this with my two year old (lots of help needed, but she loves it). My one recommendation is an efficiency quotient. I want to know the fewest commands the level could be completed in to compare against my score. I think this would also help stretch the gameplay for those users frustrated by the game's brevity. Will be upgrading to Lightbot Jr. soon.

I Am Hero

I like it This game is hard that what makes it enjoyable. You can solve the puzzles with many solutions amazing app. (Some reviews of this game says it is "impossible" dont beleive them. They're just a bunch of 12 yr olds who cant solve puzzles)

Praveen Suraj

Cool Its really awesome and it really calms me down when I'm agitated but its a little hard for me on level 6 on basics

Kaitlyn Henry

This Is So Hard! People In My Class Are Good But Im Not! At Home Gtg! Syl! (See Ya Later!) Sorry For Rating Didn't Really Like It :/ WHY DOES EVERYONE GIVE COMPLEMENTS I DO NOT GET IT!

Kathryn Palmer

I got addicted to this game years ago on Kongregate, and now it's on mobile! Lightbot ignited my ever-burning love of functions. I am just so pleased to see it here.

Jason Rennie

Awesome basic programming game My 5yo son loves this game. Pretty easy for an adult with software background but I enjoyed playing through the puzzles. Very polished. Only drawback is that there are only ~20 puzzles total.

Marco António

Fantastic! Make no mistake: it's about only one hour of game, exactly as the title says, so one cannot underrated it for that. It's a clear point. And it's one hour in which anyone can learn the basics of programming logic! It's the real thing, flow, procedures and loops. This game is nothing short of brilliant. If you want more levels buy the full Lightbot:Programming app. Congratulations to the developer. Would love to find something similar on electronics (*wink* to dev, would love to know if you do it ;)

Jose Martinez

Nice Cool and pretty intresting way to learn the basic if one were to ask me

Noah Marshall

Nice difficulty!????☺ Kind of hard to do actually? so THATS what makes it FUN.?

Jorge Marquez

Best App to learn Programming fundamentals Best App to learn Programming fundamentals, useful for kids to get them to understand how the programming worls works

Audrius Meskauskas

This is a great and funny app, I am software engineer by profession still played for half an hour with pleasure.

Atul Kumar

Nice game It's a little think tank game ... Kind of cool for those who like to solve puzzles

Winnie Ngwa

For my child My son has this in school and he wanted to buy the game so he loves it.

Stanislav Pista

Very fun, love it It helps me as i want to be an engineer when I grow up

Abby D

I'm ahead of my class because of LightBot! ? My class is studying coding and this fits in perfectly!

martijn bessemans

Great Loved playing it with my daughter. No bugs, nice and motivating layout. It took us longer than an hour.

Kristin Ommen

So fun but so hard My teacher introduced me to it when we were going to dedicate an hour of it and i loved it

Nick Myrick

Good app! Fun app! I do feel like you should make another app like this with an option to use a programming language instead. Right now this stuff is really only good for Lego robotics..

Andre McMillian

Really short I will give this game 5 stars of it wasn't so short. I beat the game in less than 45mins. Add more levels, and make it more challenging and you'd have a 5 star game.

Jasper Cerwyn Luzana

Lightbot is amazing! I discovered Lightbot when I was looking for some free games. When I downloaded it, it was pretty awesome! And I finally completed it! Thanks, developer/s!

Evan Pendergrass

Like it Great game but I wish I could beat the final level. Also this is more like 10 minutes of code not an hour.

Madame DeLame

omg best game of all times I am so addicted to this game I love it so much

Ab Ab

Best game ever This is one of those games that blow your mind.

Timmy Ricker

Quick but challenging I had fun playing. Only had a couple hang ups. But I ultimately figured it out.

Andy Lam

Needs more challenges Wasnt really an hour though, only took 15 mins to finish... look forward to more puzzles!

Ahmad Barutchi

Coooool!! Its great and use full.. I love it too much tnx alot.. I'll share it ♡♥


Really great intro to coding concepts. Even touches on recursion.

Anthony Turner Jr

Good game I have played it in third grade and it is challenging but that gets kids thinking harder. It is a fun game and you should download it.


Amazing This app has taught me how to code Great?

Christina Harrison

Fabulous 6 and 8 year old boys really enjoy this. Very educational


I can't finish the last level ??? haaalp!!! Update: well, I ended up cheating. :(

Ahsan Ismail

Addictive Can't stop challenging

Landon Burns

Epic At my school we are kind of learning codeing and this RELLY helps

Lorraine J.

Fun programming puzzle game Inventive way to interact with commends, procedures, and loops

David Suggitt

Loved it! Great way to dust off your brain and warm up your procedural programming skills

Vijay Koviloor

Awwwwww awesome The different way of learning code

Alexander Manresa

Son and I enjoyed it. My son is 5 and we went through it together. Good fun.

Saeid dehdashti

Really funny Its a real fun but may be a little hard for kids to figure it out , at least needs some help from adults

Mark Gase

A couple suggestions For young players (my daughter is 6), it would be helpful if the play speed (after pressing the green button) could be even slower - preferably with a short pause between each command. Also, if a command is specified that cannot be completed (eg "forward" when there are no tiles in front of you), halt the program rather than skipping the command - preferably highlighting the offending command in red. Otherwise a very good app.

Kriti Rao

Really good app..makes you think hard, figure out patterns, use your imagination and most importantly have fun. Perfect for kids! Will teach them the idea of coding. Keep adding more and more excercises.

Justin Soprano

Good but short Great game for introducing procedural thinking, as a gateway to learning programmi g. This free version only contains basic puzzles, so it's not a challenge for adults.

abdelrahman magdy

Fantastik It is a very good game but need more levels

farhady nia

Saba It's really great. You must play it.

Ciaran Ryan

Addictive! But sooo clever. I love the way this teaches you to build your "program" with the simplest of instructions in the most economical way. Can't wait to introduce my four year old daughter to it.

ChesKiie A.

Challenging yet fun introduction to coding I love how straight forward the direction, it's visually simple and not too wordy. I haven't finished the last level though and this game has been sitting in for a while because I don't want to look for the solution online, I wish there's an option to ask for some hints without giving out solutions.

Nick Hatchew

Just a few changes please This was a stupid game in which I was not allowed to code how I wanted I was limited to the spaces provided. I was hoping I could find a game where I could code how I wanted

Linda Chandler

Very well designed game It builds logic skills progressively. My 5 year old loved it. It balances that line between hard enough to be challenging but not so easy to get bored.

Alyssa Loyet

Great game. Makes you think. Can be done without a computer background. I'll currently stuck on 2-5 but I'll keep trying different ways. Game could use a hint system.

Siry Allen

Requirement: I will rate 5 stars it once there is a way to complete level 5! It's impossible to complete! LITTERALLY IMPOSSIBLE

Muaz A

Like it, but need some improvement. This app make me learn programming easier. But when i tap phone back button, there are few glitches screen, then normal again.

eDee Bruns

It's great until you get to section 3 If you put a loop inside a loop it becomes an infinite loop - if you did that in real life it would just continue to loop. Section 3-3 should continue forever without stopping.

syatir muhammad

More levels Too bad only 3 levels, more levels (eg.50 lvl) would become the best game aver. Increasing your programming logic skills while having lots of fun

Ray Luo

Good for kids I deduct one star because, from a professional programmer's point of view, the "loop" in this app is actually "recursion", which is not a good topic for beginners.

Johnny P

Great little app! This is a fun intro to understanding programming concepts such as procedures (functions) and loops, whilst learning to solve problems in the most efficient way possible.

Jon Reinhard

Hard I think 3-4 is wrong. Also 3-6 took me 25 hours to figure it out. Is it really for kid and only one hour to finish? Then I am a extremely stupid adult.

Valerie Sepulvado

I am just not liking this Go to your own little hour of code thing because this on stinks

William Wassenaar

Lovely Not very challenging but I'm a little out of the intended age group. Found it quite calming.

Abdellah Ousrhire

I love it BUT I finished it under 30 minutes and wished there were more challenges and other stages

Ann Richards

It's so hard I kids in my class be on 4-5 like?

Ron Dagdag

Great for 5 year olds My son enjoyed playing this game. He felt sense of accomplishment every time he finish a level.

Tam Nguyen

Wonderful I am a developer. I found this was very clever way to teach my kid about logic. Just play for 5 min and of course, I will play all the levels with my 6 years-old boy ^^

Robert Lamar

This is a great app which seems like it should be accessible and enjoyable for kids. I haven't seen it in action with kids, yet, but I'm going to share it with the next one I see. Good variety of puzzles. Those who are looking for more should note that Lightbot has several other paid apps in the Play store.

Fantastic way to teach coding principles Really fun way to demonstrate basic coding principles! This visualization made it really easy to understand "how to think" for code. Controls are simple and layout is nice, overall a nice app. Also available to play in browser on a computer! I'm an adult trying to learn to code yet I thoroughly enjoyed this game aimed for kids.
