By swiping left/right you can access 3 different choices:
1) Hero Quest: 60 levels of guided play to teach computational thinking skills
2) Class Quest: Custom maps built by teachers and students
3) Choose Your Hero: You can choose your avatar for game play

60 levels of increasingly difficult game play.
To play, click on one of the levels.
Custom maps created by teachers and students.
To play, click on the arrow beside the map you want.
Step 5: Play-Building an Algorithm
Build an algorithm by dragging and dropping commands here that will move your hero from the starting point to the Finish Flag.
Depending on map
You can toggle between which commands you need to access
Requirements that must be met in the level you are playing
Once you have build your algorithm, press the green arrow to run your program/solve the map.
Step 6: Play- Run Your Program
When your algorithm is complete here, press the green "go" button to run your program.
As you build your algorithm, round "indicators" appear on blocks to show your hero's path on the map.
As your hero moves on the map, each portion of the algorithm will be highlighted in green as it is running.
If you make a mistake in your algorithm, simply drag the part that is wrong to the right side of the screen. A trash bin will appear. You can delete the mistake by putting it in the trash bin.
