We go hands on with the brand new version of Skylanders Trap Team. The console game fully available on tablets and mobile devices with a new portal that houses a new bluetooth controller.
Visually this looks similar to the Xbox 360 when we played the game on iPad Mini. The portal offers all the same features as the console version, although without a speaker. It provides a slot to stand the tablet screen on to play hands free with the new controller.
Underneath the portal is a new bluetooth controller. This enables you to play the mobile-tablet version of the game without using touch controls. You can connect two controllers at once for multi-player as you would on the console. You can use two official controllers or third party options.
You can also play when away from the portal a bit like the 3DS version. Here you have two free “Instant” characters Trap Shadow and Food Fight. These are used when the portal is off or out of range and can be upgraded as other Skylanders.
To play the game you need to buy the new Skylanders Trap Team Mobile Starter Pack. You can try the first few levels for free via the app download in the different app stores.
