Ah Logo, I first used it on an Apple 2 at school. It's easily forgotten how instantly rewarding this simple graphical language is for a programmer noobie. It's a smart place to start, even smarter than Basic IMHO. Well done MrPlow.  :good:
Cheers,

Ian.

I assume that it requires device with keyboard built-in? As it is unavailable for my Android devices (7'' old tablet and Xiaomi phone).
Despite that I can't check it, app looks really nice, specially on yt video. :]

Ooh i like the interface, i was just reading an ancient document about plotters earlier and it reminded me of those circular roving ones they paired with Logo at schools.

I meant that app is 'not compatible' with my devices, and can't install it from Play Store, have you selected any special requirements for it? As I have checked other your games and I can install them normally.

Hi only difference is small screen is disabled reduce complaints from users that can't operate it on a small screen.
I noticed I had a half-released version in limbo so I pushed that thru now too... try again in about 1 hr from this post time.
