Video games have gotten a bad rap from some people for decades now. However, games these days can a lot more than simple fun. Rabbids Coding, in particular, adds in learning about programming along with the craziness of the Rabbids. Rabbids Coding was released last year to the PC for free.

The good news is that access for Rabbids Coding has been expanded, and it is now available on both Android and iOS devices. Rabbids Coding was the Best Learning Game during the 2020 Games for Change Awards. With access on mobile, the game is able to continue helping both kids and adults understand programming basics in a memorable and fun way.

Rabbids Coding follows the Rabbids who have invaded a space station. Players need to clean up the mess the bunnies have made through simple instructions, loops, and logic. When Rabbids Coding was released last year, Community Manager Daniel O'Connor said in a post that players don’t need “any previous knowledge of coding” when playing the game. All the instructions are simple and easy to follow.

In the release for mobile, Rabbids Coding creator and Ubisoft Montreal programmer Anthony Kozak revealed in a post that they’ve always believed that video games have a role to play when it comes to teaching technical skills, especially those that can be crucial for success. He said that by bringing Rabbids Coding to the mobile platform, “Ubisoft is making the game even more accessible so that players of all ages around the world can learn to code at home in a fun and engaging way.”

The game is based on the Rayman series and focuses on Rabbids, wild rabbit-like creatures that speak gibberish, scream when experiencing an adrenaline rush, and generally cause mischief and havoc. Their introduction to video games was initially as antagonists to the Rayman games. However, with the help of viral videos and some media appearances, their popularity reached a point when they had their own series with Rabbids Go Home.

Rabbids have become so popular that they even started appearing in games outside their own franchise. There’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Smash-Up where three different types of Rabbids are playable characters. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, meanwhile, has a cheat that turns enemies into Rabbids.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to have fun and learn.
