ΛV (Lambda V) is a game that teaches programming using small puzzles. You control a directional cursor using a custom programming language to complete tasks. The name is taken from the characters used to display the cursor for the "north" and "south" directions.

This game is primarily inteded for teaching the most basic principles of programming. As such, the programming language used lacks a lot of features you would find in a "real" programming language.

This is a completely text-based game. You will need to run it in a terminal that understands the escape sequences for clearing the screen and can handle UTF-8. I have yet to test this on Windows so I don’t know if the default conhost.exe fulfills these requirements.

Setup instructions are tbd. I may or may not set up a website to play this online.
