How to play
- A button Turn Left

- B button Move Forward
Moves Karel forward one step and leaves the LED on behind him
- shake Jump
Moves Karel forward one step without leaving the LED on behind him
- A+B button Hide Karel

See if you can make each pattern below using A, B, and shake. Once you have completed a challenge press A and B at the same time to hide Karel. For patterns that you design decide which LEDs you want to turn on and then make that design with Karel.
