Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure is the brilliantly innovative spin off game from the beloved Spyro The Dragon video game series. This game comes complete with the Portal Of Power and the three starter pack figurines Gill Grunt, Trigger Happy, and Spyro the legend himself. These action figures transform into interaction figures when placed upon the Portal Of Power, transporting them into the game world and naming you as Portal Master.

An evil genius by the name of Kaos has invaded the wonderful and mystical world of the Skylanders, and has frozen all of its guardians and banished them to Earth; the fate of their world now rests on your shoulders. Only you can unfreeze them using your Portal Of Power and send them back to defend their home with their magical abilities and weapons, in order to save Skylands forever.

There are over thirty characters in total, each with their own particular strengths, elements, and attributes such as armour and speed. Each of these Skylanders can upgrade their moves and weapons, and get stronger overall by completing challenges and specific side missions which can be played to train them up, and to learn how their powers work. You can change characters at any given moment by merely swapping them on your Portal Of Power, which comes in useful as sections of the levels you will play throughout the game are tailored to the elemental strength of a particular Skylander. This swap in swap out at any given moment feature means that you can employ different strategies and use different characters for each and every level, meaning endless replayability. Every figure you use will automatically save everything they have gained whilst you played them, including their current level, experience points, money, stat-boosting hats, and anything else you may have collected on your travels together.

Alongside the main game levels, Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure also boasts a multitude of side quests and secrets. These range from hidden treasures, stat-boosting headgear, areas full of loot that you can plunder at will and spend in the hub world on abilities to save to your character, and so much more. There is also an abundance of enemy creatures to defeat, puzzles to solve, and soul gems to collect that unlock ultimate powers for your Skylanders amongst many other things, all of which you will want to spend hours discovering. There is also a wonderfully inventive drop in drop out co-operative mode, where a friend can place their Skylander alongside yours on the Portal Of Power, and either team up with you to defend the world together, or go head to head to play against you and prove the strength of their character. Player vs Player takes place in a Battle Arena, where you pit two characters against each other in three different game types, but who emerges victorious is up to how strong your Skylander is. With so much to explore and enjoy, this game is perfectly suited to have fun with both friends and family, or fly solo and save Skylands from the evil Kaos! (Cat Emerson)

It does cost a fortune once you buy all the skylanders! That's from personal experience.

does the normal skylanders portal not work with these?

good price ATM

bought mine for £19.97 from currys around 12 months ago

but defo heat added as this is the cheapest I have seen this year

I've got this spyro set and bought giants game off eBay and the portal works fine with both games

If you are referring to the portal you got with skylanders giants then yes these figures will work with your portal.

The item in the deal is the first game in the series and barring preowned it is the only way to buy the game. Although the figures are being released in series two variants if you just wanted those.

Hope that helps.

i was looking at getting my boy skylanders giants starter pack but they seem to be £53 at the moment! im new to this skylanders and its abit confusing to me but can the giant figures be used on this first game too then, if not where do you get the figures for this one as all i see everywhere is giants? and are the portal things in both packs the same?

zoeee

Hi there, the Giants figures can not be used with the original game as they are designed specifically for the Giants software itself. Some of the standard size figures are compatible and you can see whether they are compatible by checking the bottom left hand corner of the box (which will either show a green tick or a red cross to depict compatibility with Spyros adventure or if you are looking for a general guide then this chart may come in handy http://oyster.ignimgs.com/mediawiki/apis.ign.com/skylanders-giants/thumb/a/a4/Skylanders-compatibility.png/468px-Skylanders-compatibility.png

another easy peasy way of seeing whether the characters are compatible with spyros adventure is by looking at the base of the figure, if the colour is green then it will function, if it is orange then its a series two figure and you will have to double check whether it will function or not. (by using the chart or asking in store)

The portals are the same so you can save a bit of money by getting the spyros adventure starter pack then the skylanders giants "booster" pack which contains the giants game and Tree rex figure only.

please note that when the new game "skylanders swap-force" launches then you will likely need a new portal which can handle the complex nature of skylanders with more than one ID chip.

If you are looking for a cheap way to get both sets at minimal cost then my recommendation would be the above starter kit then go into GAME and see if they have a Solus copy of Skylanders giants and then pick a giant of your choosing. you may well be able to keep the cost down to around £50 for both games 3 standard figures and a giant

hope this helps and if you have any more questions then don't hesitate to ask

thankyou for your help i understand it better now. when is the next game coming out?? i thought giants had only just come out lol

Back up to £59.99

zoeee

thankyou for your help i understand it better now. when is the next … thankyou for your help i understand it better now. when is the next game coming out?? i thought giants had only just come out lol



The next game will likely launch in late August (same month as Disney Infinity now) so you have a while yet and the figures from the first two sets will likely carry over into swap force (the swappable characters acting like the giants. Special characters as opposed to standard ones.)

right i now found the 1st game starter pack for £10 on game and the booster giant pack for £27 on game but guess what both out of stock grrrrr!

Sorry for being thick, but we have the originial spyro pack and portal so am i right in assuming if i buy the giants game and figures they will work?

Original Poster

Yep the spyro figures also work on giants game but don't level up as far as the giants figures

Ty tesco has them on offer so will stock up
