One good creative thing you can do is swap super hero pictures in and out of the player pieces. If you have a printer you can make your own pieces very easily. I just printed off some of the characters my daughter likes (DC characters too, because... why not?). Now our game includes Wonder Woman, Mary Jane Watson, Storm, and even Olaf from the movie Frozen. This fun side project extends the life of the game. I sometimes give my children blank paper and have them draw their own (tiny) superheroes.
The game itself? It's classic Chutes and Ladders, with a few problems. I wish it was a basic set so the numbers are more easily seen. The ability to do simple addition and subtraction is not really possible here, taking away the one educational aspect of this game. Still my kids enjoy playing it often.
As far as a Chutes and Ladders game, this version of it is very cluttered graphically. It is so cluttered it is difficult to tell exactly where some ladders or slides begin or end. The player pawns requiring snapping apart a clear plastic holder to put in a cardboard character you want to be. My children were unable to do this. I always had to do it for them. This was very annoying. The gameplay itself is just normal chutes and ladders.
Educationally speaking this game does have some minimal value in developing number sense up to 100 if you as the adult take the time to teach the children to count up from the space they are on rather than just count to 6 while hopping the character. For example if you are on a 32 and roll a 3 you say "33, 34, 35" while holding up one more finger each time. According to research, if you just hop along counting to 6 each time it will not benefit your child educationally (beyond counting to six). Yes someone actually published research on this particular game...
There are better games to get than this for young children over three which utilize paths or practice number sense up to 100. If you want a game utilizing paths try My First Carcassonne Game instead, where children will be strategically creating and ending paths in order to put down meeples. If you want a game that also works with number sense get Hide and Eeek. It practices memory, higher/ lower number sense up to 100, and even/ odd numbers. Both games incorporate more higher order thought in the gameplay, and are thus more educationally valuable, than Chutes and Ladders. In addition they are much more fun to play for the young child and the adult that might be playing with them.
The only complaint I have is the game comes with 8 pictures/cards of different players, but only 4 holders. Once you put the 4 cards into the holders you really can't get them out and exchange them. We have tried, but stopped before we broke the holders. I wish it came with more holders so you could have more guys to choose from, but other than that this game is great!

We've played it as a family a few times since Christmas and it's easy enough for our son to enjoy whilst not so mind numbing that us adults can't bear to play against him.
Of course it's a super hero take on the classic snakes and ladders game. It's a bright and colourful game that has nice caricatures of the famous Marvel characters
