7 reasons we love Skylanders
Skylanders is an amazing craze that brings toys to life on your console, PC or Mac. Collect a world of cool characters, battle friends’ Skylanders, solve puzzles and go on exciting adventures.
Read on to learn why Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is the biggest game of 2012.
1. Hilarious heroes
Where else could you find lava-burping Eruptor, spook-gobbling Ghost Roaster or Camo, a half-vegetable dragon who grows exploding melons? There are over 30 Skylanders to collect, each with unique powers and abilities.
2. More than just toys
Put your Skylander onto a Portal of Power™ and BOOM, it magically appears in the game. The clever Skylander figure remembers your game’s progress and can be easily swapped for another if you get stuck.
3. It’s a mad, mad world
Skylands is a crazy place where sharks burrow underground, the undead have developed a taste for pies and sheep terrify the locals. Bonkers!
4. Mini-games galore
Every level includes a bunch of fun hidden challenges and mini-games ready to be unlocked. Complete these to access secret areas and unlock cool in-game rewards.
5. New adventures
Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is only the beginning. Additional Adventure Packs open up new chapters and bring new challenges. Fight evil dragons, canine pirates, giant disembodied eyeballs and ice ogres. Brrr!
6. Play on any games console
It doesn’t matter if your friend has a Xbox 360 and you a PS3. The Skylanders work on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS and PC. Just place them onto a Portal of Power™ and play.
7. Big things are coming…
A brand new game, Skylanders: Giants is launching this autumn. All your previous characters will work, but Giants brings in even more characters, challenges and chances to defeat (and laugh at) big baddie, Kaos.
