Cato's Hike: A Programming & Logic Odyssey
Cato stepped through and discovered that this world unlike his own didn't follow the same rules. Every time he tried to take a step or an action he'd find himself stuck in place. Stuck that is until he finally discovered the rules in this universe: by writing a program for himself he would be able to overcome all obstacles and learn something new along the way!https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/catos-hike-programming-logic/id574335479?mt=8&uo=4
