So a week ago me and the kiddos had a Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Party. When the package came they of course did what siblings do. Fought over who gets the coolest stuff. Then we hung up some posters to get into the feel of the game and unpacked out Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Starter Pack which was super cool. We got everything ready, put in the game and had a blast!
The Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure Starter Pack features a game copy, 3 Skylanders(Starter Pack includes Spyro, Trigger Happy, and Gill Grunt ), ‘Portal of Power’ peripheral, character poster, trading cards, sticker sheet, web codes and batteries. What is Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure about?
The Skylanders Story
For generations, the Skylanders — a diverse group of mythical creatures, each with their own powers, personality and tendencies — have used their magical powers, weapons and levelable battle skills to protect their homeland, the Skylands. But now, an evil tyrant with the powers of a portal master has frozen and banished them to Earth. Only you, a portal master yourself, can physically put Skylanders on the Portal of Power — a conduit between this world and theirs — and bring them back to life in their world where they can battle to save Skylands forever.
Action Figures with Brains
Skylanders are special physical action figures that come to life in-game. Just take a Skylander, place it on the included Portal of Power, which is synched to your game console and a representation of your chosen Skylander will come to life in the video game and do your bidding. There are over 30 Skylanders in total – each with unique abilities and powers (three are included in your starter pack). Skylander action figures remember their in-game experiences and upgrades as they explore the mysterious world of Skylands, battle menacing creatures and collect treasures. Conveniently, it doesn’t matter what gaming system your friends have at their house, the Skylanders work on and across all major video game systems. That means that you can take your Skylanders over to your friend’s house, drop them on their Portal of Power and your Skylanders will come to life in the game.
My kiddos liked the Multiplayer Mode where you Put two Skylanders on the Portal of Power and battle with your friend as a team or pick a Battle Arena and go head-to-head against your friend to see who is the best Portal Master. Either way it’s a fight to the finish. That way they could play against each other. Which of course makes thing even better when your playing a video game
“I have a bunch of Spyro games, but this one is my favorite. I like that you can put your action figured in the real game. The game looked real good on the big screen tv. I liked the graphics. I told my friends about this and showed them the figures and they told their moms they want it so we can trade figures. I think boys and girls will like this. My sister liked playing it.”
