Description

GLICODE® turns every packet of Pocky into a bite-sized coding lesson. By laying out Pocky in the right order, you can use Japan’s (and the world's) favourite snacks to learn algorithmic thinking in a fun and engaging way.

Take control of Glico's mascot HUG HUG as he makes his way around an imaginary world, trying to spread happiness. You will need to learn different coding functions to help him navigate a range of levels so he can make his way to a child in need of a smile.

[WHAT YOU CAN LEARN]
By arranging Pocky in different sequences you can learn three basic coding fundamentals:

・SEQUENCES
・LOOPS
・'IF' STATEMENTS


[EQUIPMENT REQUIRED]
1. "GLICODE" App
Download the "GLICODE" app from App Store.

2. Snacks
All you need to play "GLICODE" is a regular packet of Chocolate Pocky.
As the levels progress they will become harder to test you on what you've learnt. Remember to save a few extra Pocky for the difficult levels - you'll need them!

3. Placemat
For the best results make sure the snacks are placed on a plain white background.
Use a white placemat, paper or plate to lay your snacks out on.


[INSTRUCTIONS]
1. Line up your snacks.
Remember not to place them too close together.

2. Capture.
Use your phone’s camera to take a picture of your snack sequence from above.

3. Test your sequence.
Hit the play button to see your code executed as HUG HUG moves through the course.

4. Eat your delicious code.
If you pass the level you can eat your delicious code and get ready for the next challenge.

*Be mindful of hygiene - we recommend you wash your hands before playing with your snacks.
*Please make sure your white placemat is clean.


[Adopted by school lesson program with MIC!]
In Japan "GLICODE" was adopted by "Popularization of Programming education for young segment" program supported by Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications in 2016. Elementary school teachers are using this app as a tool in the classroom to teach the basics of programming to early elementary school kids.


GLICODE® is a free educational app that teaches children about the principles of coding - with Pocky!

改善を求めます

iPad mini で使用しようとしましたが、カメラが起動せずにアプリが落ちてしまいます。
iPhone Xでは問題ないのですが、原因がわかりません

カメラ機能を使わずに遊べるようにして欲しい

アプリを作ってくれたことは嬉しかったので早速、子どもに遊ばせました。
ところが、カメラの撮り方で正答が認識されず、先に進めない状態に陥りました。
結局、子どもも私もイライラ、モバイル端末も何度も撮り直しでヒートアップ。
危険な状態になり、中断しました。
カメラ機能を使わずアプリ内の機能だけで遊べるようになったら、また、再度トライしてみます。

古いiPadでも操作ができれば…。

iPad mini4では、問題なく起動します。
iPad mini2では、ダウンロードはできますが、カメラを起動した瞬間落ちます。
それ以前のバージョンについては、ダウンロードすらできません。
皆が皆、最新のバージョンとは限らないので、改善を求めます。

アプリの内容自体は、大変素晴らしいのに残念です。
