Coding is such a great thing for kids, especially pre teens to learn and enjoy at the same time. It can be hard to get a teen to play a game that isn't full of adventure pr some sort of role playing.
That's why when I found out about Lenovo Code & Play Adventure Game, I immediately went to check it out with my son, can I tell you that he's been stuck to my computer for a few days now.
I don't blame him, he's been making sure to rack up those points and pass those levels.

Inside Lenovo’s Code & Play Adventure Powered by Code Combat:
Starting in Kithgard Dungeon, the player’s chosen hero has been imprisoned by ogres and must sneak, puzzle
and battle their way out by writing code to control their hero. In the first 10 levels (or about a half-an-hour of game time), players learn programming concepts like writing basic syntax, calling methods, writing strings, passing function arguments, repeating code with while-loops and storing data in variables.
With those basics covered, the game quickly moves on to exploring if-statements, x-y coordinates, Boolean
operators, event handling and other coding concepts.
Along the way the player finds loot that allows their hero to access new programming methods and abilities as
their quest continues through the Backwoods Forest and Sarven Desert where adventurers master wielding
mighty powers in defense of their people against the ogre threat.
Players reaching the end of Sarven Desert will master arrays, break statements, counters, computer arithmetic
Throughout the Code & Play worlds, multiplayer arenas give players a chance to develop their own artificial
intelligence code for their heroes to compete against each other, customized to their unique hero builds and
individual coding creativity.
The most powerful heroes will choose to shoot lightning from their fingers by putting a spell on the Emperor’s
Gloves; wield the legendary Sword of the Template Guard; or use a good defense as the best offense with a
full set of highly durable Enameled Dragonplate body armor. It’s up to them!
Tips & tricks are built-in to the user experience including auto-complete codes kids can use on-the-fly
Your kids will love playing, learning and the chance at winning some fun prizes at the same time.
