As I have not completed any visual programming, I chose Blocky Games: Turtle for this task. I must admit when I opened the game I thought it would be easy and I’d complete all levels very quickly. How wrong I was!! Although there were limited loops for me to choose from, I still found (from level 4) that I was moving through different loop options to try and pass the level, whilst getting somewhat frustrated. At one stage, I admit I sought assistance from youtube for a solution. For an introduction into programming for children, this would initially be easier as there are limited loops to choose from so it narrows the focus. Wouldn’t take long for a user to get an understanding of the process and enable them to move through the levels. On reflection though, it does remind you how explicit and literal you need to be when programming. Nothing can be assumed.
