Code Combat

CodeCombat is an online gaming platform for learning different coding languages. Free with the option to pay for additional levels, users are challenged to navigate through dungeons by coding the actions of their character.
CodeCombat acts as the primary instructor through numerous and detailed in-game tutorials, allowing even reluctant and inexperienced instructors to easily facilitate a program. The game also teaches multiple practical coding languages, including Javascript and Python. The gamified instruction will appeal to many learners, especially those motivated by prizes earned at the end of each level.
