7 year old London school boy launches Greedy Ladder, a mobile game in aid of children’s charity
28th April 2014- Dhyan Ruparel is a 7 year old school boy from Finton House School, London. Today, he launches his Greedy Ladder game for iPhone and iPad devices. The game is in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital charity.
Greedy Ladder is a racing game. You can race to the top of a ladder in 6 cities from London to New York. The idea is to get to the top as fast as you can and be number one on the ladder board. You have to maintain a good diet balance to race fast. So eat well, avoid sweets and candy and most important don’t get hit by objects like shoes and buses!
Dhyan designed the game whilst attending a hackathon with his father in September 2013. At the end of hack he had drawn the logo and designed all the game play. Since then he has been working with a specialist team of developers in Poland to bring the game to life. He also recorded all the sound and has designed a merchandise range.
The game can be downloaded for free from the App Store where you can race the London ladder for free. The purchase of other cities like Agra, Hong Kong, Paris, or Tokyo will lead to profits going to charity.
