KnotBot is a very cute programming game, which gets quite challenging if you try to go for the achievements and with that for all the gold socks. You start out very basic with just some programming tools to move the character, but every few levels you get new tools that you need to complete the next levels. This can be things like a sword to fight enemies, or the ability to grab or drop items, but also things like creating a loop in the “code”.
If you use a guide this game is very short, but the programming gets quite complex, so without the guide, you might need a lot longer to figure out the solutions, especially within the given amount of steps to collect the golden socks.
