CHUTES AND LADDERS, the classic board game has now come to life as a fun-filled interactive storybook activity app!

The CHUTES AND LADDERS: Ups and Downs app from PlayDate Digital, licensed by Hasbro transforms the beloved CHUTES AND LADDERS board game into an interactive story. It features exciting animations, beautiful illustrations, and learning elements that reinforce the idea of cause and effect and making positive decisions.

Help guide a group of friends around the CHUTES AND LADDERS neighborhood by progressing through different “Sidewalk Chapters.” Decisions your early and emerging readers make land the characters on the ‘chutes’ and ‘ladders’ of life, good and bad choices that help us get ahead, or not! From the baseball field to the cookie jar, life is filled with choices and temptations, but it’s all about learning that good choices can lead to some pretty sweet rewards! Make a bad choice and there will be consequences. Mr. Chutes, the app’s friendly guide, will show you the way…or will he?

It’s a ‘choose your own’ adventure kind of story that makes every experience in the app different, with the perfect mix of story and chance!!

Key Features:

• The color and magic of the board game turned into a vivid story for early and emerging readers
• Classic board game characters live as friends in an engrossing story you can control
• Practice counting skills with each swipe of the path
• Navigate 5 “sidewalk chapters” to progress through the story
• Land on chutes or ladders to view full screen animations!
• Flexible navigation and scene selector
• See how good and bad choices affect your path through life, as classic ‘chutes,’ ladders’ and ‘dilemmas’ are brought to life!

Wish I would have read the other reviews

I never pay for apps. It’s like a thing. But my 4 year old was bugging me for a game and I was tired of all the ads on the free apps so I bought him this one. I should have read the reviews. I always read the reviews… but this time I was distracted so I bought the app against my better judgement. And now I remember why I don’t buy apps and I ALWAYS read the reviews. The sound doesn’t work on iPhone and the game is pretty mediocre. I would like a refund or at least a bug fix to fix the sound problem. Not cool. Take my advice and don’t but this app.
