ILX Group plc launches PRINCE2® Snakes & Ladders App for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch to help prep for exams

Interactive game to help reinforce core elements of PRINCE2® Foundation

(PresseBox) (London, ) ILX Group plc, the best practice training company, today announced that it has launched the ILX PRINCE2® Snakes & Ladders App for the iPhone and iPod Touch 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. The new application is available through the Apple App Store at a retail price of £4.99.

Eddie Kilkelly, Chief Operating Officer at the ILX Group, commented, "Our team of developers at ILX are always striving to bring innovative ideas to our customers and engaging content to our learners. With the ILX PRINCE2 Snakes & Ladders App for the iPhone and iPod Touch, we think we've really hit the mark. Based on the traditional snakes and ladders board game, this highly engaging mobile learning product provides learners with the opportunity to test their PRINCE2 level knowledge in a fun and entertaining environment. Revision could never be easier - whether it's travelling on a train or waiting at an airport."

How the game works

ILX's PRINCE2® Snakes & Ladders includes 60 foundation level questions which are randomly selected as a player progresses through the game. The questions must be answered correctly to go up a ladder or to avoid sliding down a snake. Learners have the opportunity to avoid the perils of the snake by playing one of their 'Snake Cards' which provides the correct answer and saves the learner from being eaten by a snake!

Key features of the ILX Snakes & Ladders application include:

- Game based PRINCE2® Foundation Exam revision tool
- Multiplayer and/or group play options
- Choice of character selection and switchable sound effects
- Post your highscores to Twitter and Facebook social networking sites
- In-app purchase of an additional question pack containing a further 60 official PRINCE2 2009 exam questions

Kilkelly adds, "One of the most important aspects of learning is to feel confident in the exam, and this game provides a fun alternative to PRINCE2 Foundation exam practice and provides a valuable companion to elearning and classroom learners. Initial feedback has shown that there is improved knowledge retention through engaging game play."
