Code Angel: Learn to code amazing games on a Raspberry Pi - Kickstarter

Code Angel: Learn to code amazing games on a Raspberry Pi - Kickstarter

 Code Angel is a completely new and fun way to learn how to code. We will teach you how to build fantastic games using the Python programming language.

Every Code Angel game is supported by a series of concise 'Show Me How...' video tutorials, with each tutorial explaining the purpose of a key programming construct and why it was used.

Code Angel offers a further unique level of support - we actually help you to fix any bugs in your code!
There are two versions of Code Angel, just choose which one meets your needs:

Code Angel in a Box

Code Angel in a Box is your very own Raspberry Pi computer set up with everything you need to learn to code - straight out of the box. 

Step 1 - Preview
Start by watching a brief introduction video which explains the purpose of the game and highlights some of the programming challenges that will be encountered.

Step 2 - Code
The key to learning is by doing. Enter the program listing from the Book of Code on your Raspberry Pi or home computer. Each Code Angel project includes the full Python game source code listing together with all of the graphic and audio assets required to write the game.

Step 3 - Fix
Writing computer programs inevitably results in bugs. Whilst identifying and fixing bugs can be a great way to develop coding skills, it can also be a significant stumbling block for those learning to code. To get help with bugs, upload your program code to our website and we will show you where the error is and what needs to be done to fix it. Code Angel comes with 'Angel Fix My Code' credits which can be used at any time to request help with a Code Angel program.

Step 4 - Reinforce
Once a Code Angel game is finished it's time to sit back and get a clearer understanding of the code. Every project comes with a collection of short 'Show Me How...' videos, each focusing on a specific aspect of the code and what it does. Videos are differentiated allowing you to decide the level of programming concept you want to learn. We draw on over 20 years experience of teaching coding in schools to ensure that each video tutorial provides learning of the highest quality.

Step 5 - Play
No point in writing a great game unless you are going to play it. And all of the Code Angel games have been designed to be great fun to play.

Step 6 - Experiment
Each Code Angel game has been designed to be extendable, and within each project we suggest a range of 'What next...?' ideas to extend the code further, or even to develop a new game from scratch.
Code Angel comes with 12 fantastic coding projects, each of which:

is supported by concise and differentiated video tutorials that explain how key parts of the program work
includes full code listing, graphic and audio assets
develops computational thinking skills
builds on concepts learned in previous projects
gives the learner a feeling of achievement when finished
includes a set of 'What next...?' extension ideas suggesting ways to enhance each game
is great fun to play
Code Angel is not just for kids - it works just as well for adults who want to learn to code too.

What's the point in writing a program if you can't do something fun with it? You will love playing these great games once you have written them, and your friends will love playing them too. Code Angel comes with 12 amazing game projects:
