Skylanders Trap Team is the fourth Skylanders set in the series. The evil portal master, returns and has freed a team of villains called Doom Raiders from Cloudcracker Prison. Skylanders Trap Team needs to capture all the villains and bring them to justice. You trap the villains using the new Traptanum traps. Once you capture the villains they will become allies and fight with the Skylanders.
You do not need to have all the traps to defeat the game. However, in order to get into certain areas and retrieve collectibles you will need to purchase additional traps.
The Skylanders Trap Team works a little differently than previous Skylanders games. As you can see the portals are quite different than before. Once you defeat an enemy you can place a trap of the element into the slot on the portal. This in turn will trap the enemy in the crystal. Now, you can remove the trap from the portal. Later in the game you can place the trap back in the portal releasing the enemy you previously trapped. In fact, you now get to control the evil villain! All previous Skylanders are compatible with Skylanders Trap Team.
My Son is a huge Skylanders fan and has 2 of the previous Skylanders sets. He is enjoying this game and he is 7 yrs old. He understands the game a lot more than I do! This game will entertain for hours on end.
