An Introduction to the Skylanders Franchise -- By a Kid of the Parents Who Don't Even Know What's Going On



I am writing this today because my mom is resting. I'm going to write four of these. This is the first one about my favorite game Skylanders. Oh, this is Auggie, or Baby E, or whatever you like to call me. I write it on openoffice writer and then put it here. This is part one. I am going to write part two and three and four.

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure (Part 1 of 4)

An Introduction to the Skylanders Franchise




This is about the first game. This picture is of the portal and three figures and the game. The figures are small. There is a sequel called Skylanders Giants where the figures are bigger and I won't tell you more because it's a secret.

Skylanders is a video game where you purchase figurines, and then bring them to life in the game when you put them on the portal. When they come to life is my favorite part. You put the figure on the circle and then they show up on your screen. What I like about it right away is because it's a video game. You can play it on all the systems but you have to buy the game that goes with the system. Like Wii or Xbox 360, or 3DS, or PS3.

In the first game there are 32 guys or figures. In order to play the first game you need to purchase the Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack. Then you have your choice to purchase, but you do NOT need to, a Single Character Pack which comes with a single character. An Adventure Pack which contains an exclusive Skylander, two Magic Items, and a new mission or a chapter in the story. Or a triple pack which contains three Skylanders (single pack is the one kids like the most, no wait, adventure packs because they come with really cool guys.) So with an adventure pack, of three, like a Pirate Seas it's a sea theme. You play on a pirate ship. 

Once you pick a guy you like you put him on the Portal Of Power, (POP comes with the game) he comes into life in the video game. You are the Portal Master. You're in charge of who you pick to beat Kaos, the bad guy trying to take over Skylands. You can level up your guy, (like he gets more health, more health means he can take more damage, like land mines on him) he will get more powerful, and you can buy upgrades (upgrades means more abilities and stronger attacks) with money you earn in the game (fake money that does not cost real money) and they get cool special abilities. For instance my favorite guy, Terrafin has two primary abilities: he can Punch, or he can Burrow (Terrafin is a land shark). You can buy an extra ability where he summons baby sharks, and you can buy upgrades to all his attacks like Iron Knuckles where his punch attacks do increased damage. You can also put hats on guys and have them battle each other. You can buy hats, it gives them a boost. A boost is to be better.

The premise of the game is that the evil Lord Kaos (he is evil because he is short and crabby) wants to rule Skylands, and take over it . It is your job as a portal master to unfreeze the skylander by putting them on the POP to stop him. Skylands are islands that float in the sky.

I highly recomend this game, I really like it a lot. I can't wait tell you more next week. Your parents will like to watch you play from where they are laying on the bed or sofa. 

You can do two player so your friends or brothers can play. If they're AWESOME (hint hint to mine) they'll play with you.

  2. My son got one of these as a toy at McDonald's. It looks interesting, but I think he's still too young for this involved of a game.

  3. This is an excellent introduction to a game that is a big part of my life. I know almost all the characters, and I do watch my son play it quite a bit. He now has moved on to the Giants -- though he still plays with the regular ones, too -- and since he just had a birthday, he got two new ones: Tree Rex and Thumpback. I think my favorite is FlashWing. Or maybe Gill Runt. Thanks for stepping into your mom's shoes. That was a very nice thing to do. And tell your mother I love her. xo

  7. Hi Auggie-would someone who is almost seven like this game? I think Terrafin would be my favorite also. I chase my kids yelling, "land shark" a lot. It's complicated.

    1. Hmmm... let me think.

      I think you should watch videos about it and wait until all 4 parts are out, then decide for yourself.

  8. Dear E, I didn't know anything about Skylanders, until now. I wish you come to my house, study the games my girls play on our iPhones and then write a beautiful, clear description of each game, just like this. I love it!
