If you’re a fan of Activision’s popular Sklander franchise you’ll be happy to know that you can grab a starter set from Toys ‘R’ Us, connect the portal to your iPad, and go deep into the dragon filled world of adventure.

Skylanders Trap Team is a monster-capture game where players can use a physical Master Trap portal to interact with characters in a digital environment. Connect your Skylander dragon to the portal and see it come to life on your iPad.

Of course you don’t have to purchase the toys in order to play the game. Once you’ve completed the first quest, chapters two through 18 are available as in-app purchases so kids can keep the fun going, even if they don’t have monsters in their pockets.

There are more than 175 different playable characters, including ones from Skylanders Lost Island. With the Trap Master portal, you can even bring the action to Kaos. When it comes to bad guys, you’ll be able to test your skills at trapping more than 40 villains. Use your portal to turn enemies into allies and train them to defeat your foes.


If you have two Skylander game controllers, which come with the starter kit, you can activate two-player co-operative mode and join forces with friends to clean Skyland of mischievous monsters.

Skylanders Trap Team is available on the iPad for free. You can download it in the App Store today, but don’t forget to pick up your Skylanders Master Portal starter kit for the full gaming experience.
