Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure has grown in popularity due to its unique features such as combining traditional toys, consoles and the internet to create the most interactive game ever.

For all who are curious to find out what this game is all about, your questions will be answered as you read through this article.

Skylands is a magical land full of adventure, which is virtual world that exists in the skies and is frequently invaded by enemies. This calls for the protection of Skylands by Skylanders Figures.

Skylands has been taken over by the evil Kaos, the arch enemy of skylanders characters. He has banished all skylanders from Skylands, and now they have to fight for the future of this magical land using unique capabilities and different fighting tactics. You need to advance your chosen figure to fend of Kaos and claim back Skylands.

There are a variety of characters to choose from depending on your preferred style of battle. For instance, if you like archery; you would probably choose the character called Flameslinger. From the fire element, he has excellent archery skills and leaves a trail of fire wherever he has been that helps him on his escape routes. As you advance in your quest to save Skylands, your character will grow in strength by picking up gold points and power-ups.

Some other characters include:

  • Ignitor
  • Camo
  • Cynder
  • Warnado
  • Wreching Ball

In the latest release of the game, there is help to defend Skylands.

Skylanders Giants are the new, more powerful figures that are massive in comparison to the normal characters. Each Giant has even greater powers like being able to pull whole islands closer to themselves ‘in game’, giving a greater choice of advancement and support. More power and sophisticated features are what the giants are all about. Use them to ensure Skylands is once again, safely inhabited by the protectors against the evil enemy Kaos.

To start defending Skylands, you are going to need to buy Skylanders Spyros Adventure Starter Pack; which contains a ‘Portal of Power’ that enables you chosen character to come to life in the game itself. Simply place you character onto the portal to see it appear ‘on screen’ ready to start exploring the virtual Worlds available. (The starter packs are compatible on all platforms including: Wii, Xbox360, PS3, 3DS and PC)

When you feel you have grasped the idea of playing, you can even take your favorite character to a friend’s house and continue the battle to defend Skylands by placing your character on their portal of power. Each figure retains its strengths even when it is on a different Portal of Power. This gives each user the ability to join forces against Kaos and other enemies. It won’t be long before you advance to the latter stages of the game utilizing 2 figures.

Yes, you can definitely use the old characters in the new editions of Skylanders. What you can’t do is to use the new Skylanders Giants in the old editions of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure.

These are just few questions answered, which I hope will be good enough to satisfy your curiosity of Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure. One day, maybe, we may even rid the World of the evil enemy ‘Kaos’ for good!
