Our fellow Nordic indie developer and friend, Petri Purho (of Crayon Physics fame), just released a hilarious new game prototype in which you have to debug C++ code really quickly. Yes, you read that correctly! Try it here.
I keep getting stuck on one of the later levels… I may have to cheat by taking a screenshot!
Though I’m a little wistful for my days using and teaching C/C++, the game reminds me how glad I am to be using “safer” languages like Java and C#. For instance, the infamous = vs == bug (which is featured in one of the levels) has nipped me so many times! Type safety is your friend.
