Description 

Cato’s Hike is a game for the iPhone & iPad teaching  young children and beginners basic programming skills.Younger students will enjoy solving levels using simple coding techniques while older students will be able to use advanced concepts.

Learning to use loops and branching as well as even more advanced concepts such as basic stack or memory. The LITE version is more that enough encourage the young and beginners to start learning whilst encouraging them to progress further.

Cato is a little boy who just like every little boy likes to go out and play. One fine day Cato was playing outside when a portal to another world opened up in front of him; a portal to another world!

Cato stepped through and discovered that this world unlike his own didn’t follow the same rules. Every time he tried to take a step or an action he’d find himself stuck in place. Stuck that is until he finally discovered the rules in this universe: by writing a program for himself he would be able to overcome all obstacles and learn something new along the way!

learning Code for Kids” loves the “Lite” version. It is colourful and keeps the user engaged.
