Ladders have been helping us with our daily lives for over 10,000 years – we know this because they can be seen in Spanish cave paintings from around 8,000 BC and are even mentioned in the Bible. The word “ladder” therefore holds a rich history that dates back centuries.

Ladders have played a surprisingly pivotal role in all sorts of different video games, from AAA shooters and action-adventure titles to visual novels and cosy life sims.

In our Ladders in Video Games series, we spotlight some of our favourite video game ladders – and today we're looking at the ladders (or should that be *step* ladders?) that pop up in just about every instalment of Capcom's Ace Attorney series.

Ace Attorney Ladders

In the Ace Attorney games, you play as a defence lawyer (normally the hedgehog-haired Phoenix Wright, although other characters get to share his spotlight later on) who is fighting to clear his client's name. Virtually every case involves a murder and a wrongly-accused individual, and it's on you to spot the flaws in the prosecution's seemingly airtight case.

To reposition a rolling ladder, all you need to do is carefully tilt it backwards and push it to your desired location to have stable and secure access to your goods in seconds.

These may be easy ladders to use, but using them incorrectly could result in injury to you and those around you. Before getting work, familiarise yourself with the rolling ladder safety tips below...

Climbing down a ladder

When you're using a ladder, safety should be your top priority at all times - including when you're climbing down the ladder.

Falls from ladders are a common cause of injury both at home and in the workplace, so don't allow yourself to become complacent. You may have finished changing that light bulb (or whatever it was you needed the ladder for) but until both of your feet are firmly on the ground, there's still a chance that you could fall and hurt yourself.
