When the game launched I was very lucky to attend their launch event. As a person who has helped a lot of people to start coding it was fascinating to me how the kids were reacting to this game. There was a queue to the iPads available but the kids simply did not let go. Some kids had no prior experience with coding but it still managed to get them super excited about coding. I also managed to play one or two levels and the game is very well balanced and the storyline is also something worth following.

This is really cool. It's different than the other Hour of Code mobile games, especially aesthetically. The 3D environment is really engaging and fun to play with. Also impressive how the game introduces coding concepts without having to use blocks of text, but rather using the gameplay itself. Good job!
