An app can be downloaded directly from the website or from a dedicated platform store (Google Play, Apple).

The app allows to scan the commands by capturing a photo or a video. Once the command has been scanned, Scottie will carry it out step by step, and the player can see if the task has been performed correctly.

A unique programming interface, in the form of tiles, makes the game child-friendly and, furthermore, it allows children to work in teams without the fear that some of them will be less involved in the work.

Whilst the game can be played by a single player, Scottie Go! provides great teamwork fun in groups of 2-3 persons.

Because Scottie Go! involves all basic concepts of programming, ranging from basic instructions, loops, conditionals to variables and functions, it can be used as a basic tool to introduce and teaching programming. Thanks to the modular content, it can serve as a supplement of other tools that have previously been used to teach programming.

Programming the robot is done with tiles that are used to write commands which will be performed by Scottie. They also have a defined goal: they allow players to acquire basic programming concepts such as loops, conditionals, variables or functions.
