Under rating threshold (show) hey, I liked this game a lot, but could you add some way for the player to tell how the points work? I know they count down, but I have no idea how I am scored. for example, should I be aiming for fewer calls or fewer commands? what's the most points that I could get on each level? and so on.

Under rating threshold (show) I am not sure if the game is easier for programmers or not. A programmer is usually feeling bad about writing such a fugly code.

Under rating threshold (show) What's good about programming is that programs made by different people never look the same. What's bad about programming is that it can be difficult to understand programs written by other people. This puzzle mostly forces you to guess the developer's solution, instead of finding your own :/ This is not necessarilly a bad thing, but with the addition of conditionals (especially since you don't have a "not" condition) it makes the game much less intuitive than the previous one. I definitely can't understand some of the expert levels.

Under rating threshold (show) A nice challenge. The programmer in me rages a little at the last two levels because they require lots of extra calls to be made since our helper functions have a limited number of allotted commands. Definitely hard to wrap my brain around, but I liked it!

Under rating threshold (show) Every time I have to turn, I wind up spinning my hand in the air to figure out which is which, and I'm on the colored levels! You should really change those to L and R, or, at the very least, put the "turn left" button on the LEFT and the "turn right" button on the RIGHT!

Under rating threshold (show) Wow, what a game. The last expert level was waaaay out of my league. After 4 days of screaming things like "No, no, don't jump" and "I need a f*cking variable", I had to choose between clicking the walkthrough or looking for another wife. I don't like my chances, so I clicked... :(

Under rating threshold (show) Cool game, but the GUI needs some work (like being able to insert commands in between other commands without having to manually drag them all.) 5/5 because it's still a lot of fun.

Under rating threshold (show) Pro tip: You can just click on the box you want to put your commands in and then just click on the icons and they will be automatically inserted into said box. Way quicker than clicking over and over and over again.

Under rating threshold (show) If you do another game, I'd like to see "gray-only" conditionals. It would give players a lot more power over what their lightbot can do.

Under rating threshold (show) So you can't actually create loops in this game, because the structure of your conditionals doesn't always allow for an if/else construction, where one condition yields a unique response and ALL others yield another. The only way to loop in this game is to recurse and have a condition(s) to break out of it.

Under rating threshold (show) but i get confused with the turn buttons every time xD should be re-drawed or just write "turn L" and "turn R"

Under rating threshold (show) Honestly the last two levels you have to brute force it so much that the solutions stop really making logical sense and only work through excessive ugly loops

Under rating threshold (show) This is pretty fun thus far. I remember the first game being enjoyable. It's been a while since I played the first one, so I'm a little unsure if it's true of both versions, but I thought we were graded with that one on achieving a code with fewer commands. In this one, the limits kind of frustrate me, (like, where it only lets you have like, 5 slots in F1 and one slot in your code and whatnot) mainly because when I'm stuck I like to create a really awful code that just gets the job done and then tweak and simplify it into something better. With the limits, I can't make huge, awful codes to work down from. But, maybe that's why I'll never be a programmer. (I'm not sure if I even got across what I was trying to say...) Either way, I do still like this game. Thanks for the second installment~

Under rating threshold (show) The original was great fun, deserving a 5 star rating. This one not so much. There are many ways to reach a goal, this game shouldn't force you to recreate the developer's way.

Under rating threshold (show) @BahaaDhrymm Colour conditionals work based on the colour of the bot, not the colour of the tile the bot is on, hence why you need to use the light on the first conditional level. The stop function works using this logic "if bot colour is {chosencolour} then break" and I have never seen it work incorrectly.

Under rating threshold (show) Just so you know, if you click where it says "Main Method, Function 1, or Function 2," you don't have to drag each one, you just click them, and they pop up there. I didn't figure this out until the 3rd to last level... ):<

Under rating threshold (show) I think I'm kind of figured out the scoring system. If you don't play a level, the commands and calls are all 999. So you have 47952 score at the begining. If you play a level, you replace 999 with your commands and calls number, so if you play a level, you should at least have -9xx score. Therefore, getting calls less is more important. (You can play twice, once for calls and once for command, so your score will have both minimum)

Under rating threshold (show) Great game. But sadly it seems to be very CPU intensive and controls are very laggy. CPU usage is about 20% when mouse pointer is outside game widnow and about 40% when inside (idle). And moving the mouse inside the game causes CPU usage to instantly strike to 100%! Also that causes even several seconds lag in registering clicks + pointer movement.

Under rating threshold (show) Two things. One- Really fun game. It gets pretty difficult but if you sit down and toy with it the levels start to get easier. I like light bot one better though, I cannot exactly put my finger on why. 4/5 for the game great job! Two- Sorry for earlier post didn't read the description.

Under rating threshold (show) A good game but i dislike the restriction of the levels, surely the point to programing is there is more than one solution to a given problem?

Under rating threshold (show) All programmers are lazy as we know, we like to do things the easiest way. While I won't state the flaws of some of the retarded patterns for functions to do it the most 'optimal' (highest scoring) way, I will ask: where is the copy-the-nearest-tile-I-click-on key as part of the controls so that I can place tiles with as little effort as possible?!

Under rating threshold (show) LOL playing user levels also counts towards your score!!! Got frustrated after getting to the last expert level and decided to check out user levels. After I completed a quite easy one I got the badge and somehow lit the last level's icon without even playing it o.O

Under rating threshold (show) As far as I can see, the way to the best score is to run play a number of levels twice - once optimising commands, and once optimising calls. Both appear to contribute to one's score, but the game saves the *best* for each.

Under rating threshold (show) Really fun game, I love the logic of it. Though I did have to use the walkthrough to understand how to use the color scheme it didn't make sense at first. Sometimes it is confusing having to use a roundabout route to get to the final destination, but for the most part a great game! 5/5
