First-Ever App Created Entirely On iPad, Cargo-bot, Launched On App Store

Given the amount of processing power being offered by iPad tablets, it is no wonder that Two Lives Left has created an iOS app solely on iPad. In creating the app, Codea was made use of. The app that has been created is called Cargo-Bot and is a puzzle game where a robot has to move around crates.

Cargo-bot was created on Codea. Codea, in turn, makes use of Lua programming language. It has been termed a GarageBand of iPad coding because of the visual aid it provides in creating apps and coding for them.

According to the details regarding the development of Cargo-Bot,

“It’s the first game of its kind, prototyped, programmed and polished on iPad. Cargo-Bot was created by Rui Viana, a Codea user who developed his initial prototype and shared it with the Codea community. Two Lives Left reached out to Rui in order to turn his prototype into a published App Store game. They also enlisted the aid of Fred Bogg, a composer who developed a music library for Codea, to create the music for Cargo-Bot.

Coinciding with the release of Cargo-Bot, Two Lives Left is releasing the Codea Runtime Library source code under the Apache License Version 2.0. Registered Apple iOS Developers will be able to export their Codea projects into the Codea Runtime Library in order to release them as standalone apps, just like Cargo-Bot.”

The game is available on App Store for free and you can head to it straight to download and play it.
