The Skylanders website hosts every game associated with the brand, including Trap Team, Swap Force, Giants and Spyro's Adventure, along with a small assortment of mini-games themed around different activities. The site allows players to make accounts and keep track of their performance over time as they level up and explore new areas of the different games with their characters.
Some Skylanders games are available on mobile devices through the Apple and Google Play app stores. The main website hosts links to these apps and has instructions for helping players get started with mobile gaming in the Skylanders franchise universe.
Skylanders games are browser-based and run in-window. This also means that the browser used to play the game caches data, with user permission, to inform future sessions. This allows the player to have a continuous experience even with breaks and interruptions, as their account will carry all of their accomplishments forward into their subsequent games and gaming experiences.
The Skylanders site also includes an extensive list of every character associated with the brand and links to stores where the action figures for each character can be purchased. Along with commercial information, each character has its own unique story and characterization written into its character profile.
In the puzzle-action game “Skylanders Block Fu,” players match colored blocks together to attack their opponents. Players have to use their wits to line up as many of the same colored blocks as possible to deal maximum damage. Matching the same colored blocks together doesn't automatically make the blocks disappear; instead, players have to wait until they get a diamond that is the same color as the blocks. Once a diamond comes into contact with blocks of the same color, all of those blocks disappear from the grid.
“Skylanders Castle Assault” is a physics-based puzzle game in which players launch energy projectiles at enemies to destroy them. Much like the enemies in “Angry Birds,” many of the targets sit inside structures that players have to break through. The goal of the game is to destroy the enemy in as few shots as possible while avoiding the Mabu if he is present on the stage. Players should also be on the lookout for sheep and treasure boxes; shooting them is worth bonus points.
