is a game series that is based around "toys that come to life." The
characters are action figures that when placed on a special platform
called the portal(seen below) connect with the video game.
Skylanders Trap Team is
the fourth installment in the
franchise and adds another feature. After you defeat a villain, you can
trap put them in special traps.
There are eight main elements, plus two
elements that are new to Skylanders Trap Team. The main elements are
Water, Fire, Earth, Air, Undead, Life, Tech, and Magic. The other two
brand new elements are Light and Dark, and are refered to in the game
as "unknown elements."
There are 297 skylanders in all the
series, with over 50 being from the Trap Team game. Two include Food Fight and
Snap Shot(see below for more on them). Snap Shot is a Water Skylander
Fight is a Life Skylander. There are many kinds of special Skylanders,
like Giants, which are bigger and stronger
than normal Skylanders,
Swap-Force, which have two halves that can be mixed with other
Swap-Force Skylanders, Minis, which are tiny versions of other
Skylanders, and the Trap Team, which have large, "Traptanium" weapons,
and also give the game its name.
Shot is a Water Trap Team Skylander. He has a bow with crystal arrows,
and uses arrows, slam attacks, and even whirlpools to defeat his
Fight is a Life Skylander. He
is a vegetable with a tomato launcher. He launches tomatoes, plants
cabbage mines, and rolls around on a giant tomato that tramples enemies.
Traps are what enable you to capture
villains. After you defeat a villain, you may trap the villain if you
have the correct trap. As with the Skylanders, all the villains have
elements that correspond with the traps. There is also the Kaos trap
for the villain Kaos.
