Commander Turtle

My Open Source Drawing Video Game for children. :)

HELLO

Inspired in the Turtle program that I knew when I was a children.

Video sample in English
Video sample in Catalan

I think the most cool feature is that you can share your drawing commands, so children can share nice drawings.

Try these patterns:
