Code Adventures App Overview

Upon opening the application, users are greeted with the developer's splash logo, followed by a visually appealing 'home screen.' This screen includes options for different languages, an app information button for contacting the developers (with parental lock), a sound mute button, and a rewards or trophy button for tracking progress.

Game Objectives

The objective of the app is to guide Aurora, a cute purple fuzz ball, home by completing 30 levels of puzzles. The game progressively covers various coding concepts, including basics, functions, conditionals, and loops. Children learn to order commands correctly, practice sequencing, and understand the need to repeat commands for precise character movement.

Gameplay and Features

When entering a level, the 'play screen' is displayed with appealing graphics. Users can place functions from the bottom of the screen into a command box to guide Aurora to the colored home portal. The 'play button' allows users to view the sequence repeatedly without time limits. The app encourages experimentation and offers an optional 'grid overlay' for assistance in tracking steps and distances. Editing and erasing coding commands are straightforward. The app provides hints via a 'question mark' button to assist children who may get stuck on puzzles.

Difficulty and Progress Tracking

The app introduces new commands and increases complexity every few levels. Each level features a scoring star system that rewards users based on their performance. Progress can be viewed in the 'Level Mapping' screen. A 'certificate icon' at the bottom of this screen shows a child's progress with the option to create a personalized certificate by completing at least 65% of the game.
