[prMac.com] Palo Alto, California – Tipitap announced today the launch of ‘Slides & Ladders’. The iOS exclusive release is Tipitap’s take on the classic and favorite family board game, but with a few twists. The universal app, optimized for iOS 7, works with Apple TV making it possible for families to play on their big screen TVs as they pass around the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to take turns.
‘Slides & Ladders’ delivers a wonderful ‘family time’ experience, bringing families together over a fun game that everyone can enjoy. If an Apple TV is not available, the game can be played on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
“Nothing says ‘quality time’ for families like playing a board game together. ‘Slides & Ladders’ is the evolution of board games: ultraportable, no set up, and can be played on a big screen in the living room, rather than have everyone huddled around a small device.” explains Tipitap’s coCEO, Rodrigo Benadon.
The multiplayer board game was designed for young kids, but is fun for the entire family. The board can be explored by dragging and zooming in. It supports up to 4 players with the ability to choose app-controlled players as well. ‘Slides & Ladders’ has 3 difficulty levels to manage how long the game may take to complete.
Martin de Santos, Tipitap’s co-CEO explains, “It’s very common to see each kid in a family playing separately on their own digital device. At Tipitap we want to bring families closer together. ‘Slides & Ladders’ is a board game the whole family can play Together as a family and enjoy.”
The age-appropriate game is easy to set-up and play. Land on a ladder to climb up and get closer to the finish line. But, land on a slide and fall down a few places. The first one to the top wins the game.
