The tablet version is available via a Skylanders Superchargers Mobile starter pack, or a free download. Here players get some characters not requiring the related toys. Instant Spit Fire and Instant Hot Streak are free with the download, while in-app purchases will unlock Instant versions of Dive-Clops, Dive Bomber, Super Shot Stealth Elf and Stealth Stinger.
Players can use the Mobile portal device to bring in their other Skylanders toys as required. This also provides a bluetooth controller that complements the touch screen controls – as well as facilitating multi-player modes.
With older devices more limited in performance there are some compromises though. The full Skylanders SuperChargers game experience, including online co-op and multiplayer racing, is playable on iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 2, iPad mini 3, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPod touch 6. Fans with iPhone 5/5C, iPad 3 and iPad 4 can enjoy the single-player Adventure Mode, local co-op and head-to-head racing in split screen.
