A series of reward-driven mini-games that help teach coding languages at beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels.
Like Professor Layton, but with coding challenges instead of brain teasers. The game would start basic, but escalate quickly and adapt if the player is clearly a more experienced coder. As each challenge is completed, the player earns experience toward a self-set reward, as well as bonus Tokens that can be used during challenges to request hints. The player is only rewarded with these Tokens when she completes a challenge without the aid of any hints. Some exercises are timed which can also incur additional Tokens or experience.
