Take Skylanders on the go with Cloud Patrol for iOS
I'll be honest, the first time I caught wind of Skylanders I thought it was destined to flop. After all, a kid's franchise based in the universe of a barely loved PlayStation-era dragon (Spryo)? Seemed like a Pokemon wannabe at best. Yet here we are now, with kids everywhere happily locking Skylanders toys into the graviton powerbase (no, I have no idea what it's actually called), with overgrown manboys fighting for the latest translucent chase figures in the aisles of Target and Toys R' Us.
Anyhow, if you're either eight years old or horribly alone, you'll probably be excited for this iOS app, which interestingly enough lets you use your existing Skylanders characters in the game using their web codes. Realizing that this franchise seems to be Pokemon with a bit of web 2.0 built in... hmm, wonder if I can get some stock?
