The story is an action-fuelled adventure, invented by Toy Story writers Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow, which puts the player in the shoes of the Portal Master who must control the characters, including our favourite fire-breathing dragon, Spyro.
The player ventures out on a journey into an amazing world to explore mythical lands, collect gold and treasure, solve puzzles, and battle against menacing creatures while on a quest to save the world from Kaos, an evil Portal Master.
From co-operative play to toys with brains, plus the opportunity to explore vivid, unique environments, Skylanders Spyro's Adventure has something for everyone.
- Interaction figures
Over 30 characters are available to collect, each with their own unique and expressive personality, powers and abilities, providing distinct advantages and skill sets for various levels, obstacles and enemies - depending on which one you're using.
- Toys with brains
Each of the interaction figures has its own memory, capable of remembering what a player has done, including the gold collected, the abilities improved and statistics levelled up.
- Categories, strategy and collectability
Every individual interaction figure has its own element classification - Earth, Air, Fire, Water and more - plus each has their own heroic challenges, which become unlocked for playing as more characters are collected.
- Fun with exploration
As the tale unfolds, players will find themselves exploring unique, vivid environments, each with its own distinct look and feel, and each providing different challenges, puzzles, as well as exciting hidden elements like secret areas, rewards and mini-games.
- Co-operative play
Players can join forces with their friends and drop in and out of each level with as many different character interaction figures as they like. Co-operative play lets players work out different strategies together, as they select their favourite characters to work together to bring down obstacles, hazards or enemies.
- Player versus player
The classic battle mode lets players face off against each other one-on-one, in a variety of game modes and maps, each one with its own obstacles, hazards and, of course, power-ups.
