Pancake Panic - stacking the flapjacks with this Windows Phone arcade game

12

Pancake Panic is an interesting Windows Phone game in many respects. The game was developed in one week as a way to help teach primary school students, ages 9-11, in the UK how to code. The developers, Chaos Created, provided these workshops for students in hopes of possibly inspiring them to pursue these skills further.

The goal of Pancake Panic is rather simple, catch as many falling pancakes as possible before time runs out.
