Upon first release back in April, there were plenty of reasons to play Skylanders Cloud Patrol, the iOS version of the hugely successful game and toy series. A subsequent update added even more features and, now, here we are with another major update.

This latest update adds a bunch of new special abilities for the players' Skylanders with Trigger Happy gaining a new Golden Anvil Rain that smashes everything in its wake, Stealth Elf now shoots with suepr speed, while Terrafin can shoot rocks as an extra bonus attack. Other new features come in the form of Legendary Bash's ability to explode all bombs with a Max Combo and Flameslinger's Ghost Swords working twice in a row. That's just scratching the surface, too, with more special abilities promised with every character having a new skill.

Smaller changes such as new elemental coins offering big bonuses and coin collecting goals for players above level 20, and better pacing in later stages complete the update.

Fans should adore the new reasons to return to the Skylanders world, while this proves an ideal time for newcomers to be drawn into the addictive land.

Skylanders Cloud Patrol Adds Legendary Skylanders

Skylanders Cloud Patrol, the on-rails shooter based on Activision's popular toys and games hybrid franchise, has recently gotten an update bringing new features.

Most importantly, more Skylanders have been added into the game. Warnado, Wham-Shell, Camo, and all of the Legendary Skylanders are now in the games, so our toy addict readers no longer need to fret about their favorite not being in the game. The web codes that come with each Skylander can still be used to unlock them right away in the game, to take advantage of their elements for daily bonuses, and because it's just more satisfying using one's favorite character to get a high score. Of course, they can still be unlocked via in-game credits, but that's just not as cool as owning the actual figure, now is it?

The game has now been updated to support the new iPad, including supporting that Retina Display. The Skylanders will look practically real! Well, they kind of already are, but, now the digital versions will look practically real. I suppose. Sadly, despite having "Cloud" in the name, cloud-based saving has yet to be implemented. The free update to the game is available now.
