Slides & Ladders is a simple but quite fun board game that parents and children will enjoy. While the concept is similar to the traditional board game Chutes & Ladders, this app includes some interesting added functions that make this app more challenging and fun. After spinning the spinner, players tap the number box to progress across the board. However, there are two spots on the spinner that can either propel players forward faster or hold them back. The sun on the spinner provides fun options for players to speed ahead of the competition with things like a flying bubble that carries players forward or a skateboard that causes them to zip ahead. The rain cloud keeps things interesting by either holding players back when they lose a turn or sending them back to the start.

The developers have also included three difficulty levels for children to select as they play that adds more ladders and slides making this app even more interesting and challenging. With so many options in this app one thing is for sure, children are going to have a ton of fun as they play this unexpected and sometimes challenging game.


Priced at just under two dollars this app is a great deal. With up to 4 players, 3 difficulty levels and unlimited fun, this is one app children are going to love. For a little bit of money Slides & Ladders can provide hours of good clean fun!

Child Friendliness

Easy to use and safe too, this app is great for children of all ages. The user interface is very intuitive so parents can rest assured knowing this app doesn’t require a ton of instruction at all. With no social media links, in app purchases, or advertisements, Sides & Ladders is completely safe for children to play. What more can you ask for in a game app for kids?

Slides & Ladders is a fun and engaging board game app that children of all ages will love. A great app for family game night!
