Pow!

POW! is a programming language with an emphasis on simplicity. Its syntax and semantics are designed to be easy for beginners or students new to programming to understand while also being useful for rapid prototyping. It was created by Keith Simmons in 2007 as a tool for teaching game development at the Georgia Institute of Technology. POW! uses imperative and object-oriented paradigms, has built-in support for simple graphics and interaction, and can handle complex mathematical operations without requiring advanced programming skills.
