Please open the Coding Awbie game on your iPad and press the Play button on the main menu once the game loads. After the animated introduction, tap the screen, and you will be presented with hints (an animated hand showing which blocks to use). The first level provides animated hints for every action.
Osmo Coding Awbie is played by placing blocks of code in a sequence on the table. Once you have assembled your program, you can run it by pressing the green Play Button.
The Osmo system will have a hard time seeing your code if your hands are covering the blocks. Make sure your hands are out of the way before pressing the play button.
Master the world of Awbie by putting together complex commands for Awbie to follow. The more strawberries eaten in a row, the bigger the reward and the faster Awbie runs! Collect your seeds to start and expand your farm!
Repeat and Number blocks will guide Awbie onto a longer and more complex paths. Want to make Awbie do a particular move multiple times? Use the Number blocks. Look out for repeating patterns in the landscape, they are opportunities to use the Repeat block.
The If Block will help Awbie stay out of trouble! By using the IF block, Awbie will go down a different branch if he runs into trouble.
Also, please note that the latest Coding Awbie update includes a manual in-game. It can be accessed via the Settings menu, under Manual. It introduces all blocks, as well as concepts such as looping and conditionals.
