Skylanders Trap Team launched last month for entertainment systems, and for the first time ever on iPad, Kindle Fire and Android tablets! My 6 year old has not stopped talking about the Skylanders game for over a year, even though we don’t own a gaming system. He was determined to play this game, so when I got wind that Skylanders Trap Team would be available for tablets, I was all over it!
The Skylanders Trap Team Starter Pack includes a portal and wireless game controller, two Skylanders; Food Fight and Snap Shot, plus two Traps. The starter pack also includes a Trap Collection Tray to conveniently hold all of your Skylanders Traps. Collect all 40+ traps for even more fun with the Skylanders game!
There are two ways to play:
- “Controller” – Fans can play the game just like the console version using the Bluetooth Traptanium Portal and toys with the custom Bluetooth Skylanders game controller included in the Starter Pack.
- “Touch Controls” – For players who prefer to use touch controls instead of a controller, fans have the option to play the game just using on-screen touch controls.
Activision Publishing did a great job at creating this new line of Skylanders products. The wireless portal even includes a handy spot to hold your tablet!
About Skylanders Trap Team:
Skylanders continues to lead and evolve the category with Skylanders Trap Team by letting fans seek out and defeat the most wanted villains in all of Skylands, pull them out of the game and into living rooms by capturing them in magical Traps. Once they’ve defeated the villains, players will be able to place a Trap into the new Traptanium PortalTM to capture them. Players can then send villains back into the game where they can play as them to fight for good, reversing the magic. They will also be able to hear the villains inside the Traps, an innovation that truly brings life to toys.
My son was beyond excited for the opportunity to play the Skylanders Trap Team game on his iPad. His thoughts? He loves the Kaos challenges within the game. He thinks the game is awesome and loves playing it. His little brother also enjoys watching and cheering on his big brother.
