The Game of Life dates all the way back to 1860. Over the decades, it’s evolved from a simple checkerboard affair to an elaborate board game with a spinner and play money. Its latest incarnation? An immersive iOS game played out in a 3D animated world.
As you spin the virtual wheel, the camera zooms in on your character as you zip across the tiles of the board to earn more money. All the challenges from the board game are carried over: choosing a career path, buying a house, getting married, raising kids and advancing your career – or not, depending on your luck and lifestyle preference. The iOS version adds a host of mini-games that pit players against one another.
So gather your real-life loved ones and enjoy a little old-school fun – the kind that family and friends have been having for over a century.
