Snakes and Ladders Free review
The description of Snakes and Ladders Free
The developer of Snakes and Ladders say that this game is meant to teach a valuable lesson; that life is full of ups and downs for everyone, and that no matter how high you think you are you can always come down.
Essence of Snakes and Ladders - 4/5
The game doesn’t try to reinvent the wheel. It’s the classic Ludo game that has opponents play in a race to get to the finish first from a common home point. The game is played on a game board divided into square cells. The number of divisions varies with the type of board or match that you are playing, which is one cool thing about this particular variant. The first cell is the starting point, and the last one is the finish. The first player to get to the final cell wins. Along the way are ladders and snakes that play a major role in the game. Ladders progress you up the board while snakes send you backwards. You roll a dice to determine your cell movement.
Graphics and Audio - 4/5
Time and budget constraints are the curse of indie developers, and it’s evident here. The game consists of colorful 2D background boards, with a 2.5D dice superimposed in the front. Though a little bland, the game offers a variety of vibrant game boards with different artistic effects. You’ll see movements marked by colored pins which change position as your dice rolls. The soundtrack of the game is upbeat and contemporary.
Controls - 3.5/5
This game would probably fit best with a mouse, as some touchscreens are not entirely reactive to thumb movements. As it is, the dice is the only thing that has simulated mechanics on your screen, but even this doesn’t come out nicely with the touch controls. It feels a bit clunky, but thankfully this is the only thing you need to do other than tapping on menus and on-screen icons.
Immersion - 4/5
This is a game that you keep on your phone simply because it is classic. It offers a variety of gameboards and difficulty levels and is something that you can spend hours on because of its addictive quality. Snakes and Ladders is simple, but maybe that’s how it was meant to be: a game that is no frills and can be enjoyed by both kids and adults alike. The graphics are enjoyable, and the soundtrack keeps you immersed.
