Why Python instead of Assembler?

I want CodeCombat to support coding in Assembler, why didn’t you support Assembler? Supporting C and Machine Code or even Malbolge coding language would be nice.
I got an idea, get rid of Python and Javascript and replace it with Assembler, C and COBOL. That would make kids more interested.

There’s no way CoCo is going to throw away these two. :slight_smile: They’re actually working on supporting C soon though.

I don’t know about anyone else, but when I started I would not have been at all interested in those languages. They’re a bit too confusing for young people starting programming, in my opinion. But we’re always open to new ideas, I just don’t think getting rid of python and Javascript is the right answer.

I have to agree with you there Danny. When I started at around age 8 or so, I just wasn’t ready to believe the fact that 1 + 1 = 10
