Designed for Arcade Coder

The Arcade Coder is a programmable game console that teaches children how to design and code their own games for up to 4 players. 

Through an iPad app, children will customise games by adding code blocks to existing frameworks. They can then create their own pixel art, design & code their own games. Kids can also play the games they’ve created with their classmates.
