Story & Themes
Of course, someone has to trap all these villains, so the Skylanders call in, well, the Trap Team. The player (or Portal Master, as the game calls you) accompanies the Trap Masters on a series of quests to stop the villains from wreaking havoc in the Skylands. Along the way you explore the magical Skylands, and meet lots of funny, over-the-top characters.
As you defeat villains, you can trap them and then play as them--adding lots of fun and complexity. The game uses toys-to-life technology, so you have to buy a figurine for each character that you want to play. The figurine goes on a flat "Portal" that hooks up to your system. The Portal reads a chip in the figurine base and saves data to it, so your figurine gets leveled up with new abilities, and items. The traps get inserted into a special slot on the Portal, which also contains a speaker so the villain that you have trapped can talk to you from the toy.
