“Skylanders SWAP Force” is a platformer game developed by Vicarious Visions and published by Activision. This is the third major release in the “Skylanders” franchise. The gameplay of “Swap Force” is based on the previous two games, “Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure” and “Skylanders: Giants”. In the game, the player uses a portal to bring real-life action figures to the game. Also in this new version, Skylanders are able to jump, and there are new swappable Skylanders. The game also brings a new Portal of Power. With new Portal has been added thanks to a new technology that makes the characters in “Swap Force” work correctly. The older portals from the past two games would not be able to sense the top half of these new swappable characters. Players also meet up to sixteen new characters who have top and bottom halves that can be separated from each other and recombined with the halves from other characters. This allows for a total of 256 combinations between all tops and bottoms. Another new feature of the swappable characters is that each has one of eight distinct ways of moving. These different movement types are necessary to enter certain side areas in the game called “Swap Zone Challenges”. Only characters with the correct bottom half can enter said areas, including: Rocket, Spin, Dig, Stealth, Telransation, Bounce, Speed and Climb.
