Play an adventure game and have fun while learning to code i.e. program computers. Use visual instructions to guide Marco or Sophia through a series of levels as they try to discover themsevles. In this journey you will learn how to think as a software developer one step at a time! Instructions are in the form of the standard visual programming language "Blockly", which is the same used by the official Hour of Code tutorials.

Based on an original story, this is so fun to play that you will forget it's an educational game from level one! Designed for 6 to 12 y.o. kids by a team of experts in engineering, arts and education.

Run Marco is recommended in the official website for the Hour of Code.

The first level set in the Jungle, teaches basic instructions and sequence of commands, different types of iteration and conditional logic.

The game is translated in 26 languages and more are coming soon.

    Nice job, but... 1. Coding elements are too small in size. I'd like them to be twice bigger. 2. What about translation to Russian? It looks like you did all languages in Universe except this one. Full Review

    Great next step after Foos! This is an engaging learning game appropriate for the indicated 6 to 12 set! It quickly teaches programming fundamentals. There are not many levels yet, but what is there is excellent! Note: I have had trouble with multiple installations of this game on the same device and recommend not attempting that. Full Review

    My 9-year old daughter loved. She found out very late in the game that it recognized the Romanian language, but even though she doesn't speak English very well she had no problems playing the game in English. Full Review

    Best ever The best game to teach kid. My daughter loves the graphics and whole story. The only disadvantage of run Marco is that there is just 10 lvls and my child almost cried when we found out there are no more lvls Full Review
