If you are a beginner and looking for a fun and easy way to start learning programming then this article is for you. Recently we reviewed a website providing great games to learn software including programming and many other software skills.
Please note these games won’t make you an expert in programming but can definitely give you some ideas about it and moreover generate interest. A report says, learning through games is more impactful and generates lots of interest. Recently, I was exploring such options for beginners and came across some amazing software development games. This site offers enjoyable free games for various categories like money games, real estate games, business simulation games and more.
So, if you are looking for a fun way to start learning something then this is the right platform for you. Although I have been testing and playing multiple games, the one that i liked most is – code panda.
Code panda is a very beginner level programming game where you write the code to help pandas reach delicious bamboo. There are 32 stages in this game and these are from zero to advanced level stages.
Once you land to the landing page of the code panda game, you get a screen like above. Click on play button and then you land on a different page which asks you to select a level to play. As said above levels range from 1 to 32 and you can select the level as you are comfortable to play in. Let’s say you select level-1 to play with.
You will get the screen where the level-1 game will be started. Initially as the game will be loaded, you will also see an introduction. And once put the bricks, press the run button that you are seeing at the top. Depending on what you select the blocks, the panda will move and if that is a good move, you will get a nice work message along with the star. If you have helped pandas reach the goal, then you will get 3 stars and depending on how much help you have done to pandas, you will get respective stars.
Please note you will have to clear the level before looking to play the higher level games. So, basically you have to help pandas reach a higher level and in between many obstacles will come in between and you need to help pandas get over it.
As you move higher in the level, you will see difficulty in the game getting higher. Similarly, you can explore other games as well and those are equally enjoyable. The idea of these games is to generate interest in software development, coding, problem solving, and reasoning ability in you. Other games I liked were – Idle startup Tycoon, Ben 10 omnicode, and a few more.
And so, if you have some free time and you don’t want to download anything, just open the site and get it going. It’s free and browser based and you don’t need to download, sign up for anything to play these amazing games.
