“Hopscotch is the best way to express your imagination! Most other "learn to code" apps just make you complete boring levels with 4 "move" blocks, but in hopscotch you have the freedom to create anything, which is amazing.” — BuildASnowman, Hopscotcher

“This taught me sooooo much about basics of coding. I have been able to make some cool games I hope to learn more as I advance this app was extremely helpful and easy to learn.” — BestBeginnersCoding, Hopcotcher

“I had ZERO background or programming experience. I personally checked all 8 or 10 of these blogs about recommendations. And Hopscotch was the most intuitive and interactive. It’s not like you’re just playing video games. My daughter loves it!” — Mom, S. to daughter, 8

“I am a 4th grade teacher who LOVES your app. Our students have been introduced to coding through it and I am impressed with the creativity they have shown and the skills they are building while creating projects.” — Kelley, 4th grade teacher

What’s New

Version 3.39.3

Happy Holidays Hopscotchers! The winter contest deadline fast approaching. Start coding to submit your entry on time!

Last time, we brought z-index out of beta. This time, we're also bringing the "get z-index" trait block out of beta. Yay!

This release has a few bug fixes before we all go on vacation.
- You would think that 6 - 5.9 == 0.1, but floating-point math is complicated, and for a while in Hopscotch, it didn't. We fixed it for you, and you're welcome!
- Some of you pointed out that our handy "Editing" label on the stage was making that area unusable in your project. We've fixed that too.
- Lastly, there was an edge case where your variables would get set in the wrong order. We've rearranged the code so that should not happen anymore.

Editors' Notes

“Coding” may sound a bit dry and daunting to some newcomers, but those are the last things that come to mind while using Hopscotch. The app lets you have as much fun making games as playing them, and with its colourful, friendly interface and stacks of help and tutorials, kids (and grown-ups!) can build all kinds of apps—while learning the fundamentals of programming. Best of all, you can share your creations so anyone with an iPhone or iPad can play them too!

Love it but add

I love this game but you should add a button where when you press it, it will say tap on the item you want to disappear then you tap the button again the item will disappear but when you tap it twice all the it will come back it would make it easier to make different levels

Why Do I Have To Pay?! 😢

I loved this game so as soon as I got a new device, I had to download Hopscotch. The only problem is that you have to get that in-app purchase, so now I can’t get it. Please make this game completely free or at least add an option that allows you choose whether or not you want to pay. If you do this I’ll definitely start playing but for now, I’ll just be waiting for you to do this

Ps: I doubt that you’ll even read this

But anyway, I do realise that you need the money but I can’t even continue because I just want it to be free. I’m sure that there are other people who agree with me too. I’ve tried to find other games but Hopscotch is my absolute favourite without a doubt. I remember that I used to come home wanting to make a new game straight away.

So basically, in my opinion, everything is perfect about this game except for having to pay to start playing.

Why do I have to pay?!😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

Edit: if you want people to pay, maybe consider allowing them to play without paying being a must, but instead paying being a strong want. So basically, I was thinking that you could allow people to play without having to pay, but you could make it so that people want to pay for the better things.

Please, at least consider what I have written, since I’ve also put a lot of time into writing this. If you are reading this,

Thank you for making a fantastic game and, of course, for reading all of this
