Light Bot: Robot-programming and gaming pleasure

This is fun! Light Bot is a neat flash-game. You control a little robots, by giving him commands like "walk forward" or "turn left". Your job is, to collect find blue tiles in the maze and turn them yellow. To do so, you have to set up the program in your robot accordingly. At higher levels you will like to write macros or little functions to make things easier for you to program (in the game the things are called functions). This is a very pleasing way to get into or learn writing and thinking in code. Even for kids.

Coding-language for kids is even a very interesting topic of its own. Maybe some of you will remember Logo, with that "crazy turtle"? I also took a quick glance at Boku, which looks quite interesting.
