Cato’s Hike iOS 

 Cato is a little boy who just like every little boy likes to go out and play. One fine day Cato was playing outside when a portal to another world opened up in front of him; a portal to another world!

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!

Robo Logic is a neat logic game. You have to "program" a robot's movements by dragging commands to the memory of the bot. Your goal is to activate all the marked boxes. Very soon you will realize though that using only the main memory is not enough and you will have to start creating and calling re-usable functions to achieve the goal. Robo Logic is very easy to learn, but hard to master.
