    Even though this game looks awesome, I just want to test the game! It won’t even let me into the game without a “subscription”. I would’ve liked this game if it let me code (as a kid) for free! Worst coding game ever.

    So my first glitch was fixed but I don't know if this is a glitch or not (ಠ .̫.̫ ಠ) but i finished at least 18 of the game ideas but then when I look for the 19th one nothings there. Moving along, I love this game! The Foos are cute, great graphics, short but understandable stories for the puzzles and the Community! The game never ever ceases to provide me joy.

    I love code spark! My favorite mini game is puppy problems 🐩 can you make a kitty 🐱 one though I love cats too! I like both! And my favorite character is the astronaut 👩‍🚀 from puppy problems I use her almost in all the games I make! CodeSpark is fun! It has math also and it’s mobile! Sometimes it’s no internet, but most of the time there is! I may rewrite this again ya never know if it will be good or bad but I’m guessing good! Developer if you response to this I may rewrite it to talk to you and we could talk to each other! Also I completed puppy problems IN A DAY WOW I KNOW RIGHT! I recommend downloading this if you haven’t already thanks for reading and sorry it was so long! And bye 👋🏽
