It was only a matter of time before Skylanders started running rampant around your apps. That time has finally come with the Skylanders Cloud Patrol game for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, developed by Activision. Chances are that you’ve already heard of the new Skylanders characters from Activision; whether it’s through the best-selling home console release Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure, the Skylanders action figures in toy stores or perhaps through a young family member who adores the series. Skylanders has taken the gaming world by storm.

Skylanders Cloud Patrol is reminiscent of the old carnival game Whack-A-Mole; playing as one of 30 Skylanders, the goal is to shoot the trolls as they appear. If you shoot a bomb or a troll manages to shoot you first, the game is over. You have two options to kill the trolls using your Skylanders operated cannon turret: you can either tap on them to kill them one by one, or swipe your finger across multiple trolls to kill them instantly and earn bonus coins. In addition, completing challenges, such as killing a large amount of trolls, awards you with gems, the game’s secondary currency.

Magic attacks, special abilities that can only be used a few times per match, also come into play and give a strategic element to this arcade shooter. Coins and gems purchase new Skylanders, new magic attacks or upgrade existing magic attacks; these features, combined with its arcade-like high score nature, give this app much replayability.
