What is the path supposed to do in this game?
So he talked about the "path" in this video, but what is the path? They should really bring up the actual game more so we can see what we're trying to accomplish. I forget what the game even involves. I think it's a robot moving across the grid. Will the robot take the same path every time? Is it a strategy game where the user can choose the path?
This Defense game is very confusing because we know very little about it!!!

The "path" is like a road on the map (the grid) the the characters will move along. As the course progresses, you'll see more about how it works, including some animated illustrations. But try not to get too distracted by the game, the purpose of the course is to teach programming concepts!
