For a long time hacking and using web language codes was something that only adults and fugitives of the law did to gain illegal access to databases and company mainframes, but as technology grows more accessible to people of all ages we’re seeing games like Hakitzu Code of the Warrior encouraging young minds to learn the language of the future.

Hakitzu is a video game that combines fast paced game play involving deadly robots and arena styled fighting with modern day and real world coding skills.

Made to instruct children on the language and codes used on Internet, Hakitzu does not require you to have any prior programming knowledge. Using strategic game play and featuring some interesting multiplayer functions, Hakitzu is only one of the first of many games of the future that aim to build coding skills.
