It sounds sappy, but this program literally changed my life. I was in the seventh grade and didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life. My mom bought this for me for my birthday (back when it was new). I stayed up all night going through the tutorials and finally, tried to write my own simple program, but found I had no clue what to do. But I stuck with it, I went through the tutorials again, and paid more attention. It completely changed my life, I absolutely loved programming with LTPB (as it was affectionately called), I made a ton of awesome games (I have them on a CD somewhere), and now like 9 or 10 years later I'm a video game programmer. I love what I do, and it's entirely because my mom bought me this program and encouraged me to keep with it. If you (or your kids) have even the slightest interest in making video games I highly recommend this software. Also, expect to see math grades improve. You'll be doing all sorts of math and enjoying it, something I never though was possible until this program.

One day back in fifth grade I saw a Saturday morning cartoon where the hero had to hack into a computer to save his friends. Being a typical kid I was all hyped up about computers and programming that whole day, so when I saw this in a catalog I decided I had to have it, and didn't stop pestering my mother until she ordered it.
Simply put, it was phenomenal. It taught me the basics of programming, and it made me really like computers. Next thing I knew I didn't just want to program simple games--I wanted to do websites too! So I moved on to designing websites in HTML when I was twelve, PHP the next year, and so forth, and now I'm a prospective computer science major.
The software's easy enough to understand. It gave me a little trouble once when variables were introduced, but it was so engaging I kept at it until I figures out the concept. Looking back it was very 'retro', kids nowadays might feel it looks a little too '90s', but if they have any motivation to learn to program (and it's not something the parents are sort of 'forcing' them to do) they should really care. Five stars!

When I was in 5th grade I got this at a book fair. I never became a professional programmer but throughout college I was making bank doing it on the side. I know its old, and there are probably newer flashier programs out there, but its still great. I recommend it for anyone who wants to learn.

Many reviewers have noted that this software "changed their lives." I am no exception. My mom bought me this software from an educational outlet my school subscribed to when I was in 5th grade. I now have my Master's in Computer Science and work as a Software Engineer. This software was mostly entertaining, sometimes frustrating, but ultimately enlightening. I hope they recreate this! I can't imagine my middle school period without it.
