The teaching is done as children progress through a series of puzzles. To get from one side of the screen to the other, the correct series of instructions must be entered.

Thi step-by-step timeline control mechanic is designed “to create a more visual, intuitive link between the steps of code and their results than is found in other coding apps". It also offers a customisable difficulty level to accommodate younger players while also keeping more advanced coding techniques available to older fans of the show.

PJ Masks Hero Academy is available today for £4.99.
