i liked it

i mean i see people being like “too hard!! couldn’t get past ___ level!!!” well then you should try lots of different possibilities. i solved the whole thing in a little less than half an hour, and it was rly cutesy. i’m 15, so i’m a little ahead in the brain, but i do recommend the earlier stages to younger kids. however, i saw one review of a 27 year old who didn’t understand the P1 part? it’s unnecessary to leave a bad review just because you’re not smart. i understand it perfectly fine dude, and i’m half your age. maybe you should try a little harder. anyways, the loops are also generally easy. whenever i found myself being redundant in my codes, the game wouldn’t fit it, telling me there was a more efficient and logical solution to the problem. helped me cut off excess codes i didn’t need and use my mind for problem solving. the game was really simple but also tested your intelligence (SO MAYBE DONT LET YOUR FIVE YEAR OLD PLAY IT) and really worked my mind - even if it was just a little jog of exercise and not a full workout for my brain. it was a good break from the stress of school. personally, i liked it :)

Pretty cool

This game is pretty cool and all and I do recommend anybody downloading this for the kids and it’s pretty fun and I just started playing it for like 10 minutes and I’m already on level two and stage Five and it’s pretty hard on that level and I couldn’t complete it in anyway because my storage is always before and couldn’t add anything else and I didn’t really learn anything from this since it was just you do it with your own strategy so I’m just gonna give you things you can use in the coding I’m not gonna teach you could do this to do It’s like if you do this wrong figure it out yourself go tell your momBut it is pretty cool and I like using it and it is hardSo I don’t recommend This game for any five and under girls since it’s really hard I’m already almost 9 and I still can’t figure out level two stage 5
