Ubisoft announced Rabbids Mobile today, but it’s not the all-out insanity of past Rabbids games, it’s an educational game that let kids learn to code with Rabbids to keep them interested.
Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Rabbids Coding has been out on PC for about a year but the jump to mobile should open up the audience tremendously. I know I’m going to download it and let my kinds have a shot at it…
Here’s the press release:
UBISOFT ANNOUNCES RABBIDS CODING IS NOW AVAILABLE ON MOBILE
The Free Coding Game Will Launch on iOS and Android and Will Add a Chinese Language Option
Montreal, October 22, 2020 — Today Ubisoft announced that Rabbids Coding, a free game designed to introduce kids to coding, is now available to play on mobile devices. The game will also add Simplified Chinese to its list of language options, which already includes English, French and German. These updates come one year after Ubisoft launched Rabbids Coding on Uplay for Windows PC.
Rabbids Coding was developed by Ubisoft Montreal with the goal of making coding training accessible and fun for everyone. In the game, players must use basic programming commands to clean up after the mischievous Rabbids, who have invaded a space station and left a mess in their wake. Simple and intuitive, Rabbids Coding can help players as young as seven (reading skills required) learn coding basics, including sequential programming, loops and conditions.
The game has also taken on a newfound importance during the global pandemic, as families have turned to digital solutions for home learning: since March, the number of Rabbids Coding players has increased by 150%. In July, Rabbids Coding won Best Learning Game at the 2020 Games for Change Awards.
“At Ubisoft, we believe that video games can play a role in teaching the technical skills that will be crucial for success in any number of careers in the future,” said Anthony Kozak, Programmer at Ubisoft Montreal and creator of Rabbids Coding. “By bringing Rabbids Coding to iOS and Android and providing a Chinese language option, Ubisoft is making the game even more accessible so that players of all ages around the world can learn to code at home in a fun and engaging way.”
Players can download the game for free on mobile through the App Store and Google Play, or play on Windows PC by logging in or creating a Uplay account at uplay.ubisoft.com.
