I can't believe your team made these games in game jams. Amazing job! It could easily be a game with a price tag!

This is a simulation of really advanced computation concepts. I loved it!

fun and all but the controls are atrocious (seriously why not make the up button also the jump button) also the controls for programming the ai leave much to be desired


It is a really interesting concept and it is a nice way to introduce programming as a game!

Absolute BLAST to play, loved the retro aesthetic!

i am not particularly good at this game, but it is definitely neat; fun, good job


this game is awesome


This is in a different game jam, but I've seen the first game. Wow, now you're collaborating with the virus?

Maybe it's not the virus, I only saw the level select.

Yeah it's just a NEW AI


Huh didn't know they made a sequel. Now this is a game that could be expanded exponentially, making the program a 2D in world 2 was intriguing I thought there would be multiple programs or some shit. I appreciate most the levels not being trial and error schlock.

Sadly the Spider from the previous game is not in here, must be because they foresaw what my gooning would cause, likely why they suppressed this from me for 4 months.

the sequel

The game is really fun! The only issue is that the jump sound is too loud on the default audio settings


cool art I made


Love the game, the only thing I don't like is the last level feels way too easy. I wish there was a 3rd world.


trop bien ton jeu!


Is anyone not going to realize the Grabanakki dude looking into the computer on the title screen?!?!?!

oh huh. you're right. cool. 


this is such a fun game!!

This is so cute! I love how your avatar is a little cursor. This is such a fun idea.

I think the only request I'd have is a slightly more intuitive interface for programming the AI, including maybe a different kind of toggle for turning the program on and off. I don't know why, but my brain just wants to be able to move my little avatar around without the program having to be on. 

But you're really onto something here. Kinda gives me Baba Is You and Robo Rally vibes.




me when coroutines are a gameplay mechanic O:


This game is so charming and fun to play. I like how it introduces the AI assistant and continues to expand it as the level increases. Although I had roadblocks, it is to this game's benefit as the aha moment really hits hard. I feel very rewarded from completing it. Really love this game and actually would like a new set of levels!


Good game. I love the idea. 


cool game, but how do i input things into the ai??


I pressed in the blank boxes space and then again space, to move with the arrows, and to execute enter

The game is a blast to play through!


very good, I was even sad when it ended


Very nice game, really enjoyed playing it.

Good job mate <3


this is a game deserving of more than 3 days of effort


Wow this is amazing


Very nice! 馃憤馃榾


Amazing work! I hope you're planning a commercial sequel with more levels and mechanics.


Very unique + very cool!

a nice game felt i got killed on doughnuts more due to my poor platform ability on the downloop causing me to get crushed on seemingly nothing.

need more harder level

love the first one, love this one, I just want more

Great game I liked the first one better, but still a good sequel.

a fun and unique platform puzzle, really enjoied.


what game engine or game framework did u guys use to make this?
