Combining the puzzle-genre and basic programming logic, your job is to control a mini robot through the factory and light it all up. Quite quickly you will realize that basic forward logic isn't going to get the job done, and soon enough you will start thinking with functions and creating intricate bot commands to achieve the ultimate goal.



Awesome but Too Short

The concept of this game is simple and easy to understand. You have a set of commands to give your 'bot' and you have to guide it through a puzzle, hitting checkpoints/triggers along the way.

The music is kind of... eh, but it's not a big deal. Sound isn't important to this game.

My only genuine complaint is that the entire game felt like a tutorial. By the time I got to the last level I felt like I was finally starting the actual game. And then it was over after that level. It was underwhelming but still fun.

If there was a level creator, that would completely make up for the shortness of the game and I could give this a perfect 10.

Lovely but short.

Finished the game with 177 commands. Too bad there aren't any more puzzles in it. Still a very enjoyable 15 minutes spent.

not enough function space

i couldn't get past the level with 14 blue tiles to light because there wasn't enough function space. Other than that looked good


I had a blast, even tho I had so much trouble! oh well, loved it!
