Play an adventure game and have fun while learning to code i.e. program computers. Use visual instructions to guide Marco or Sophia through a series of levels as they try to discover themselves. In this journey you will learn how to think as a software developer one step at a time! Instructions are in the form of the standard visual programming language "Blockly", which is the same used by the official Hour of Code tutorials.
Based on an original story, this is so fun to play that you will forget it's an educational game from level one! Designed for 6 to 12 y.o. kids by a team of experts in engineering, arts and education.
Run Marco is recommended in the official website for the Hour of Code.
The first level set in the Jungle, teaches basic instructions and sequence of commands, different types of iteration and conditional logic.

Best intro to coding out there
I downloaded this at the same time as Scratch Jnr while looking for coding apps for Foundation Stage, and this one absolutely trumps anything else I've seen. Simple, intuitive and step-by-step, plus instantly appealing visuals. This one is certainly going into my school's new curriculum!!
