Gaming and Programming

I've had a lot of fun playing a game that seems to teach the basics of programming. It illustrates functions, recursion, conditional statements, and all in a thought provoking and challenging manner. The recursion and expert levels were a blast. So if you're interested in programming, or a guru wanting a quick critical thinking challenge, check out:

A professor from mine at college, probably inspired by the amount of World of Warcraft I played at the time, was frequently looking into the possibilities of teaching via games. I think making learning fun and teaching critical thinking skills through video games will be the wave of the future.

How about you? Did you find the game enjoyable and challenging?
