Pex4Fun is available as a game on the Windows Phone marketplace.
Windows Phone 7 exclusive, sadly
... In-built courseware allows users to get up to speed with all three languages, even if they have no prior programming experience - and while the app won't make you into a world-class coder overnight, it's a neat way to get involved in programming - and a nice way for Microsoft to boost its prospective Windows Phone developer pool.
- OneTee Anyone else been playing with this? ... I'm finding it mildly addictive.
