    Was interested in this, then LOL.

    Also not really sure Java is the most natural teaching language, objects, scoping and explicit parentheses are not what I'd teach first to children.
    throw new ArgumentException (String, String, Exception)

    Is it really Mac only ? That's a shame if so, pointless really.

    There is no version for Windows or iPod yet. But we will have one for Windows soon! Check back here: https://sites.google.com/a/en*g.*ucsd.edu/codespells/downloa*ds"

    Ze zijn ermee bezig.
    Geen zorgen.

    FTA: William Griswold, a computer scientist at the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego explained “CodeSpells is the only video game that completely immerses programming into the game play.”

    While it's a nice looking 3D game, there's a game on Linux called Laby (I have less than 5 posts so not allowed to post links, search "laby debian" for reference) where the goal is to move an ant on around the maze area and move objects and not get killed and such. It was fairly fun as a beginner, not as complex as what this CodeSpells looks like obviously.

    Is there a game that will teach Oracle to stop trying to install the ASK toolbar. Now that would be a great game.

    This is a really old idea with a new spin.

    Assassin's Creed taught me to make a clean kill and hide the body. Grand Theft Auto taught me how to escape.

    That has to be more handy than Java?

    Parameters are skills? What next, system.out.println("whatever") is a skill?
