Skylanders SWAPForce

Skylanders Swap Force is the third part of the Skylanders series, and the follow-up to the incredible Skylanders Giants and the BAFTA-winning Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure – Best Video Game.

Embark on an exciting new adventure with the Skylanders and the Swap Force. For generations, the Swap Force protected the volcano that replenishes Skylands’ magic. That is until an epic battle caught them in an eruption that blasted them apart, sent them to Earth and gave them the ability to swap powers. Only you can mix and match their tops and bottoms, put them on the new Portal of Power and help save Skylands.
We have been playing Skylanders SWAPForce for a month now and it is even better than its predecessors.  I am also pleased to report that all of Isaac and Kian’s Skylanders work with the game too – as you can see we have quite a few.

We were sent the Skylanders Swap Force Starter Pack to review which includes the game, Portal of Power, characters and more!

The Swap Force Skylanders characters have the ability to mix and match their abilities and powers.  They simply separate in the middle and snap together in new combinations to give them different powers – the ultimate in cool apparently!

If you collect all of the characters you can create a whopping 256 unique combinations in total!

Two weeks ago we were sent Night Shift to review.

From high up in the gloomy Batcrypt Mountains, Night Shift was a full-fledged baron and heir to a great fortune.  But one day he decided to leave it all behind to pursue his dream as a prizefighter.  It wasn’t long before Night Shift became the undefeated phantom-weight champion of Skylands, famous for his massive uppercut and for having once bitten an opponent in the ring.  Unfortunately, a rule change made teleportation illegal and Night Shift was forced to give up his belt, officially ending his career as a boxer.  Crestfallen over being disqualified from a sport he loved so dearly, his spirits picked up when he was sought out by Master Eon, who told him that his skill as a fighter could be put to great use as a member of the Skylanders.

Have a look at our video below and see how easy it is to create a brand new character with its own unique powers!

  1. Skylanders giants have been a huge hit in our house. Can you use the same portal for the swap force that you use for the giants?

  2. Woah – just a few Skylanders then! Skylanders have passed Ozzy by, I think it’s because he’s in reception maybe – come Year One he’ll probably be after them!

  3. My son (13) loves Skylanders and wants the swap force thing for Christmas. He’s only allowed to play those kind of games at his dad’s though so I leave it to him to buy them!

  4. My son is a little too young (4) for Skylanders although he has just started to notice them. God help me when he does! A marvellous collection though, that’s pretty impressive!
