Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure – Xbox 360 by Activision

Bring your Skylanders to life! Be frozen in our world. Alive in Theirs. For Generations, the Skylanders have used their magical powers and weapons to protect Skylands. But now, an evil tyrant has frozen them and banished them to Earth. Only you can put them on the Portal of Power and bring them to life to save Skylands forever. Each Skylander has their own unique powers and abilities to enhance your game play experience and save Skylands.

Our original disk got fried when my son left it on top of his Xbox 360, and I searched all the local shops for just the game since we have all the figures that still work. Nobody carries just the game minus the figures. I refused to repurchase the starter set again and this was perfect. You’re purchasing the game ONLY.

Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure is the first video game in the Skylanders series. It is a video game that is played along with toy figures that interact with it through a “Portal of Power”, that reads their tag through NFC and features the voices of Josh Keaton, Dave Wittenberg, Darin De Paul, Joey Camen, Audrey Wasilewski, Keythe Farley and Kevin Michael Richardson.

Activision announced that as of June 3, 2012, the game had been the top selling console and handheld video game worldwide for 2012. As of March 31, 2012, Activision has sold over 30 million Skylanders toys, and sales are expected to exceed $500 million by the end of the year. A direct sequel, Skylanders: Giants, was released in 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation 3, Wii, Wii U, and Xbox 360.

For generations, the Skylanders did their thing – using their magical powers and machinery to protect Skylands and the Core of Light. But using his Hydra an evil tyrant called Kaos has destroyed the Core, frozen and banished them to Earth. Now the Skylanders must find a way to get back home, find the elemental sources, rebuild the Core and banish Kaos.

The game begins with a village in Skylands being ravaged by a massive tornado. A small, bookish fellow named Hugo mentions the destruction of the “Core of Light” and the death of “Master Eon”. Suddenly, Spyro (provided by the player) appears and proceeds to save the villagers still trapped in the village and brings in Trigger Happy and Gill Grunt.

Following the rescue, the player is introduced to the ruins and some of the game’s backstory is explained- the world of Skylands has been protected for a long time by the Skylanders. Each group of Skylanders is led by a Portal Master- a being able to teleport Skylanders, weapons and even magic where needed to keep Skylands safe. Alas, the last of the Portal Masters- Master Eon -was coming close to his death and, to make matters worse, an army of darkness attacks. Their leader is Kaos- a Dark Portal Master -, who is determined to spread the Darkness- the ultimate malevolent force in Skylands -as well as destroy the Core of Light. Unfazed by Kaos’ hollow threats and willing to fight to his last, Master Eon sends the Skylanders into battle. They prove more than capable of smashing Kaos’ army, a point that Glumshanks- Kaos’ troll butler -is quick to point out. Unconcerned, however, Kaos unleashes “Plan Z”- he sends a large, hydra-like monster into battle, which single-handedly kills Master Eon and destroys the Core of Light. Compounding matters is the fact that, without a Portal Master, the Skylanders are leaderless and (even worse) Kaos banishes them from Skylands, which causes them to shrink and become semi-petrified due to a separation from Skylands’ magic. The player (who is now the new Portal Master) is tasked with restoring the Core of Light.

To restore it, however, the player must collect several mystical objects. Chief among them are the Eternal Elemental Sources- the sources of Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Tech, Magic, Life and Death that exist in Skylands. This is no small task, as Kaos is quick to notice and sends all of his minions out to destroy the new Portal Master and the Skylanders which Spyro recruits along the way. Despite his best efforts (among them creating dark copies of Skylanders), Kaos fails to stop the player and (with the help of several other characters met along the way) the Core of Light is restored. Humiliated and weakened, Kaos and Glumshanks retreat to the Outlands- Skylands’ most desolate place. Not wanting to leave anything to chance, the player and the Skylanders journey to Kaos’ Fortress, where they engage the Dark Portal Master, the Dark Skylanders and the Hydragon- a half-hydra, half-dragon monster that was responsible for breaking the Core of Light and killing Master Eon -in a massive battle.

In the end, Kaos is defeated. While he is unconcerned about being banished again, Eon’s spirit informs him that he is being banished not to the Outlands, but to Earth. Hugo gladly sends Kaos to Earth, where he is apparently made the new chew toy of a dog.
