The main purpose of this work is development of educational computer game for enhancing programming skills by solving puzzles. The game is managed by user programming code. In the course of development serious game influence on education process was reviewed. The conclusion of this review states the positive effect of using games. 21 programming games were analysed to identify trends using three frameworks: 4C/ID, ATMSG, DPE. Shader programming languages CG and HLSL were chosen as learning languages of the game. Development included writing game rules, determining of game cycles for different game parts and program realization using Unity 4.3.4 game engine. Old version of engine was chosen because of need to compile shaders at runtime. During the development the method of automatic shader analysis was created using compute shader. The result was compared with analogues using 4C/ID framework. It showed the imperfection of the game, so areas of future studies were proposed.

The article consists of two main parts, theoretical and practical, and its volume is 78 pages including title, annotations, table of contents and appendix. It include 14 illustrations and 6 tables.
