Abstract: Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) paradigm is one of the most common paradigm in introductory programming courses. However, novices often have difficulties to understand the basic concepts which are of a high level of abstraction. Either tangible and virtual constructive games provide the students with a more familiar way for learning programming. This paper applies a construction game metaphor approach for learning OOP concepts and C++ syntax. After introducing some tangible and virtual constructive games for learning programming, we present an experimental prototype of a new 3D virtual game for learning OOP called PrOgO as well as the results of an experiment conducted with beginner student using PrOgO.
