22# Skylanders Trap Team - 2014

Review81Score

The Trap Masters, working with the Portal Master, must try to capture all criminals that Kaos has released from Cloudcracker Prison, which held the most feared villains of Skylands. As in previous games, the player controls a variety of characters by placing toy figures representing the characters onto a near field communication-enabled interface device known as the Traptanium Portal, which activates the character in the game. Unlike the figures, which brings characters into the game, the traps can be used to store forty-seven enemy characters originally found in the game (including Kaos apparently), who may then be controlled as good characters. Trap Masters are introduced in Trap Team and are special Skylanders that are stronger against trappable villains.
