Skylanders Cloud Patrol Preview: Skylanders Cloud Patrol might just be your next mobile addiction

Mar 29, 2012

Haven’t heard of Skylanders? You must not be a parent, then. This past holiday season they became the biggest thing since Pokemon. A neat mixing of real world toys and video games, players could purchase plastic characters that could then be accessed in-game by placing them on an accessory called the “portal of power.” It’s pretty ingenious, really – and the game is plenty of fun, too.
