App description: Grandmother's Footsteps is a traditional game taken into the digital era. Several players try to run up behind a person who has his back turned and then have to stand still when the person turns around. The game is known by many names and is played all over the world. "Statues" or "Red Light/Green Light" in the US. "Grandmother's Footsteps" or "What's The Time Mr.Wolf?" in the UK. "1,2,3, Soleil!" in France.

The game plays as a party game, with each player tapping in one corner to make his character run, and holding to stand still. When one player wins, he then controls the light for all the other players on the next round.
