Friday Fun ‘n’ Games – Light-Bot

Well, here we are, it’s the year 2008 and we still don’t have our flying cars, personal robots or time travel. What a rip-off! At least now you can pretend like you have your own robot. Drag-and-drop the commands across the top into the boxes on the right. When you’re finished, hit start and he will obey your every whim. The idea is light up his little noggin’ whenever he stands on a blue square. Lighting all blue squares completes the level and you move on to achieve greater glory.

This game starts easy, walking you through basic commands but gets tricky quick. You only have a limited number of commands, so use them wisely. Or, if you’re not interested in completing the level, use them to program your little buddy to dance “the robot” for you. Oh, the irony!

Anyway, eventually you end up having to program subroutines using the f1 and f2 commands so you’re even tricked into a little lesson in computer science when you thought you were just having fun. But it’s fun anyway and good for future human robot relations. Program away little buddies and enjoy your weekend.
