This is just a quick puzzle game I threw together for my class. You must create a simple program to guide Bill the Robot through each level and pick up the computer chips therein. The kids dug it, so I thought I'd throw it up here.

For instructions, click on the question mark in the lower right-hand corner.

I am truly astounded by the amount of views this has gotten. Thanks to everyone for the helpful reviews! I am currently working on Bill2, and will take all of your critiques into consideration.

Interesting and educational

This reminds me of my CIM (computer integrated manufacturing) classes where we made a program to run a robotic arm, and ran subroutines based on input and sensors. Not much of a "game", but it's obvious that work went into this, and it's quite interesting. And here I was just looking for a quick blam :P

what a teacher!

what an awesome learning tool to show kids the basic principals of programing.

what grade level were you designing this game for? what did they think of it?

pretty simple for the likes of us, but maybe if you even got the chance you could create something more in depth for us at newgrounds? i know id like to see it.

thanks for sharing this though!

4/5

It was for grades 3-5. I had tried doing some LOGO with them, but they were having a hard time understanding the difference between moving right and turning right; and so Bill was born.

After playing the game for a few days, I supplied them with the editing "software" (just another Projector) so that they could build their own games.

As far as how they took it, I guess you could say it went pretty much like anything; some kids really enjoyed it, others weren't so excited. Telling them that they'd be putting their own game together got quite a reaction though.
