  • Fake coding

    Umm... hello? This is pretty dumb because this does not have things like java or c#. It’s pretty cool that you won awards but this just teaches things like do a loop and put it in snaps. In real coding it uses a real lot of words and when u said in the ad “they don’t realize they’re learning” it’s only like kinda true cuz they are learning things that are not in coding. So thank you for bringing me all these ads but I looked at them and said “these are fake!!” So please improve if you want or just stay ignorant.

    My five year old twins play this game everyday to develop levels. However some recent changes now prevent them from playing the same time on our account. They log each other out. Also more learning games to earn money for level components would be great. It’s a real motivator.

    Hi, I’ve bin having a lot of fun on code spark! I think you could add some real code throw 😀. So when people get too this type of code they can get a step up. But it would need to be fun at the same time! 😒 I just wanted too add something, but I like it this way! Oh, and my name is violet. Nice meeting you, bye!
