App review: ILX PRINCE2® Snakes & Ladders Exam Prep Game

The ILX PRINCE2® Snakes & Ladders App was launched in March 2010 with the primary aim to help reinforce core elements of PRINCE2® Foundation and prepare candidates ahead of exams. The game, which can be played individually or connected via Bluetooth with up to four people, aims to reinforce key elements of the PRINCE2® Foundation course by testing the users with prompted questions within a familiar gaming environment. This app costs 0,79 Euro.

Snakes and Ladders (or Chutes and Ladders) is an ancient Indian board game regarded today as a worldwide classic. It is played between two or more players on a gameboard having numbered, gridded squares. A number of “ladders” and “snakes” (or “chutes”) are pictured on the board, each connecting two specific board squares. The object of the game is to navigate one’s game piece from the start (bottom square) to the finish (top square), helped or hindered by ladders and snakes, respectively. Every time when you throw a dice, you first have to correctly answer a PRINCE2 foundation question, before your game piece can be moved (by the number of squares indicated by the dice roll). The app contains 75 questions and can be upgraded with an additional 75 questions.

This game is a highly engaging mobile learning product and provides learners with the opportunity to test their PRINCE2 level knowledge in a fun and entertaining environment. To make it even more beneficial to the learner I would suggest adding an explanation to each question that can be reviewed after answering the question.
