Programming education has become compulsory in elementary schools from 2020.
Although this education is necessary to survive in the IT society of the future, to be honest, not all school teachers have programming experience, and many elementary school students seem to be in a situation where they are suddenly told, "Programming..." In the first place, they tend to think that programming looks "difficult.
In the first place, they tend to think that programming is "too difficult.
In such cases, the best way to learn is to have fun while playing!
Konami has released " Solomon Program, " a strategy game in which you use programming to control monsters, on the Nintendo Switch!
Direct your movements by combining "phrases"!
Solomon Program" is a new genre of game called " Battle Programming Strategy " that combines battle , programming and strategy.
The objective of the game is to summon monsters on a map divided by squares and defeat your opponent, but the way to control the monsters is different.
Instead of giving direct on-the-spot instructions such as "move here and attack this one," you "program" the monster's actions in advance by combining medals called phrases!
For example, if you program a monster to "approach" and "attack" the "nearest" enemy, the summoned monster will do exactly what you tell it to do.
There are infinite patterns of behavior that can be set depending on your imagination, but this is something that is better learned than taught!
You can learn the concept of "programming" while playing by thinking about what to do and how to set it up.
Even so, you will probably be frustrated at first when the robot does not behave as you expect it to!
You will be thrilled when you finally get it to work the way you want it to, and you will be inspired to create even more difficult programs! Let's play the "Solomon Program" first!
