Daddy Long Legs has a simple concept. All the player has to do is walk their character as far as possible using a screen tap for each step. The execution, however, takes more effort than that. Timing, rhythm, and laughter (and/or frustration) all come in to play.

As the player works they will also be collecting coins and gifts (if they can walk far enough to reach them), as well as completing challenges. Challenges can include things like walking a certain distance or falling a certain number of times. There are also costumes and different characters that can be unlocked, or achievements and leaderboard rankings to complete.

Daddy Long Legs has in-app ads and purchases available. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating.


Daddy Long Legs helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Self-ControlDaddy Long Legs

Managing our actions, feelings, and behaviors.

Daddy Long Legs is a game that was designed to have a high failure rate: the player is supposed to fall over a lot. That’s why some of the goals include things like falling over fifty times. But knowing that this is a difficult game doesn’t automatically make a player accept their failure. He or she will still have to exercise their self-control skills. If the player doesn’t control their anger and frustration, they will time their steps worse and fall more often. This will make it harder to meet challenges and earn coins and presents.

Time Management

Being efficient and aware of our use of time and effort.

In this game, keeping pace is very important. The player must estimate how long it will take for each step, which can vary slightly based on the angle of the character’s body. If the player doesn’t have the right timing when they tap the screen during this game, their character will fall over almost immediately.
