This work investigates the use of programming games as an alternative to establishing the first contacts of high school students with programming concepts.

The research was conducted with 14 students who used three different games and answered a questionnaire with open and closed questions that sought to know the opinion of students on: (i) favorite

The results indicate that using programming games as an approach in the early contacts of the students with programming concepts can bring beneficial results for creating a less intimidating environment where the student realizes his ability to achieve educational goals while have fun.
