LADDERS TO HEAVEN is a digital interpretation of the ancient Indian board game "Snakes and Ladders". The one-button jump and run game uncovers the marvelous world of Indian painting to the rhythm of Indian music.
Originally, the game had a religious meaning, describing life as a journey to salvation or enlightenment. Ladders as symbols for virtues facilitate the ascent to heaven, while snakes represent vices and thus revers the efforts.

Fantastic...but it would be great if you could save your progress considering this is a digital reinterpretation of the original game.
Phenomenal visuals, style and gameplay. Great game! Great iOS experience.
Really exotic concept
...but getting the hang of the controls is the real challenge!
