Just in case the devs are listening... I would really, really love to be able to fight AI offline in this game. The concept sounds fantastic, but I deleted the app out of shyness when I realized my real live human opponents had to twiddle their thumbs while I learned to code my way out of a paper bag - or starting position, as the case may be.

I'd instabuy at $5 or less if there were an offline AI skirmish mode, and $10 or less if there were a story-based offline campaign that doubled as a coding course.

Pretty cool Game but the missing Single Player Modus does kill it from the first moment....

Besides the missing Offline Training Mode that the Game does miss so badly that I don`t understand why the Folks over at Kuato Games hadn`t added it straight from the Beginning the missing Single Player Modus does kill this small Gem already from the first Moment I had loaded it up and dig into it.

I just hate it that I have to wait till someone does his next Step during the beginning of a Game where I`m just trying to learn the basics of it.

Instead of presenting the Game and all it`s Features in an Small Single Player Campaign all I`m getting is a few Screenshots with text on it and then all I do is wait till someone that probably also as clueless as me to do the next Step till I can finally do the next Step.

It`s even worse since the Coding Part of the Game does work very well and the first time my Robots did what I told (code) them to do I almost freaked out to be honest since it was awesome and the Game does look great too when those Robots start moving while the Code is going down to make clear where we are if it comes to my Coding


I love the Core Gameplay Mechanic but the missing Singleplayer Campaign does kill it for me.

If there was a single player offline game here I would be all over it and happy to pay for it.
