I’m using CodeCombat this summer to teach an introduction to programming and the kids are having a ton of fun with it.
We’d like to all do a multiplayer round but can’t figure out how to do this. Most of the kids are at levels 12 & 13.
Thanks for the help!
This is the first, simplest multiplayer arena: http://codecombat.com/play/ladder/dueling-grounds
They may also be able to play this one: http://codecombat.com/play/ladder/cavern-survival
Each kid can click “Play Humans” or “Play Ogres” (you would probably want half and half), then beat the AI, and submit their code for ranking to the main ladder. Now, they will be playing against everyone else on the ladder, but they may also get some matches against each other. If they are Facebook or G+ friends and sign into those networks, they can see each other and challenge each other to matches.
Later we’ll hopefully expand this to make it much more natural to play with one’s clanmates, but that part isn’t ready yet.
