Well yes, but I figured they stopped a while ago. I didn't think they would completely disappear smilie
I'm just salty because I'm stuck using the unaccurate pictures in the creator app... -.-
Lmao Im waiting for the App to even be gone at this rate.



It would make sense to follow the faith of the other mobile games.

The latest IOS version probably hosed Lost Islands, I think it disallowed 32 bit apps. I haven't touched it in ages, I pretty much maxed out everything that could be done in it and they never updated after late Trap Team (Gnarly Barkley was never added, but the rest of Trap Team was in there). It was a fun time waster, particularly if you avoided buying gems - that just made it easy mode. Although given having Skylanders to input codes also kind of gave you a big leg up as well, so it isn't like not spending money on the game.

I thought it was just me who had issues.

I'm still peeved at apple for that update. I understand them wanting to trim the eco-system, but there are a LOT of niche programs that I use for making music, that don't get real support anymore, but are still valuable to me. I don't care that they aren't 64-bit, I don't care that they are maintained, they created sounds and let me do things other apps currently don't

It really isn't that complex to make them 64bit. You just recompile with some different switches. The only issue is testing. Send the devs a message for your apps, some might be willing to do it. Lost Islands won't get upgraded because they are shutting down servers in November anyways. And by enforcing it in the OS, it makes the OS code a lot easier to maintain and has the added benefit of pushing people off older models.

I did my last collection for nostalgia sake last night and took some screenshots of my kingdom, then upgraded iOS and Lost Islands no longer works. Fun while it lasted.

LI also had no staff for years(pretty sure their artist also moved on to SC and then left), so it's a miracle it worked for this long with no updates. But yeah, it's a shame there's no way to conserve this game since we got the warning after it stopped working for both iOS and Android. I have a few pictures but I don't think some characters have footage of their animations on youtube.

The 9th to 11th October, so it's already over.
"will continue to highlight Skylanders" could just be them reminding people that it still exists, otherwise I imagine we'd have heard something about if more companies picked up product licences already... Or maybe they do and no one, not even Acti, decided to mention it, I dunno.

Edit : It says 2017 Activison Publising Inc. on everything

I just noticed that it features images of the main 5 Skylanders from academy maybe it’s marketing for academy IDK.

Replayed Iron Jaw Gulch and Beware of The Bird in SF. Remember how it used to be my favorite bar none? Still fun, but not as amazing as I remembered. It may be because I feel I've seen everything in it, but I'm just not wowed with it anymore, so much as just amused. It's a good game, very polished, knows what it wants to do, has a lot of content. But it has more fat than I remembered and the combat, while it still has some great moments in Survival and still seems nicely balanced, is slower than I remembered and that makes it hard to come back to when SI's feels faster and I'm playing Sonic a lot which is a ****ing fast game. And the game feels like a VV game... If you've seen my posts in the VV opinions topic then you know I don't find the gameplay in VV games fun. SF is kind of an exception, because while it's a bit slow and that isn't my thing I also still think the effort in overhauling everything shows and it has satisfying mechanics and pretty nice game design, but I feel the TFB games outdo it when it just comes to fun. It's kinda funny coming full circle on my opinion on SF in some senses and ultimately preferring the TFB games. I'm really glad I decided earlier to end with SI because it truly is a high note to me. SI is my favorite entry now because it has the least fat in its level design and pacing, the most characters, and great polish, alsoSwitchversion. I'd like to replay the full series to get a proper re-ranking and retrospective opinion of them, but I don't have the time or feel like I'll get much new out of them, so Skylanders is over for me. Anyways, thanks for the memories, to everyone here and everyone who was on Ghostroaster. It's been a fun ride and it wouldn't have meant nearly as much to me without those communities to share thoughts and discussion in.

Sonic Mania is GOAT game now if you were wondering. :y

I disagree, so you have to stay on this board and debate about it forever! Muhahahaha!

I'm sort of in the same boat; if Imaginators is the end, I'd rather it be on this game than any previous entry. smilie

#29719 Posted: 14:57:20 14/10/2017
I hope Inaginators isn't the last. My goodness the story is just flat out terrible. We need a finale where VV handles the story, TFB does the characters, and both teams do the levels.

(Now I'd rather have VV do the next one on their own since you know me, VV for the win. Either way if they do both teams then oh maaaaaaaan)

I'd rather have them say that for the Spyro remakes, Squigly part aside.

I think it's still too early for actual remakes (or more probably remasters) of the first two games, let alone SWAP Force which is part of the current gen, except for the Switch.

Also, while I do agree that Imaginators is not the best end for the fanchise, and I frankly doubt it was intended to be that, I feel like it's still a great game to at least stop and think about the future.

Just let skylanders go on break for another yr or 2, then bring it back. Needs a good story, not to many new figures and No repose. Bring lightcores lighting effects to them, have the figures light up and sell them all alone, no starter pack ones, no triple packs etc. Release figures in waves but let ppl know when they are coming. Wave 1 Oct with game, wave 2 Nov, wave 3 dec and a final wave in jan and that's it. Adventure packs can come out in jan, feb and maybe march and then call it.

I agree with basically everything, except for a few points:
- it's a matter of tastes, but I'd still prefer if Lightcores were a choice, because of the figure and in-game look, the slightly higher price and bomb power.
I'd want my Giants to stay the only official Lightcores (even if I wish Trap Masters had the same technology as well);
- not having Starter Pack characters don't sound like a consumer-friendly idea, just because we have tons of Skylanders doesn't mean everyone shoukd as well.
One or two character would be enough, but the game must be playable from the get-go with just the Starter Pack content.

Face it, Skylanders console games are finished, it's over.

VV's web shows both Skylanders games in the same section than other previous games they developed that are no longer supported (like Tony Hawk or Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2).

Most part of TfB employees are placed on other projects no longer related to Skylanders, including the "boss staff".

And Acti's statements about "keeping the development of the franchise in different ways" are clearly an indirect way of alluding merchandising, the mobile game, the series, and that's all.

We know how Activision works. All the evidence is there, though it's not direct.

We had 7 games, 5 for handheld consoles, apart from mobile ones, and more than 150 characters. All of this will be always there for us.

Yeah, but the whole Imaginators cast gets just tiny bits of content that barely make up for its size in gameplay styles. It's there, but it's not like there'll ever be anything fun to do other than the arena, since the Superchargers Racing aged even worse now that MK8D is around.

Then there's the lore and ANY good development in all the story hooks they dropped, but I'm as usual the minority on that.

In my opinion the franchise still have some life in it, but i am not expecting a console game any time soon.

The only thing we can hope now is that mabey one day in the future they will reboot the first games in a way that is not require toys.

That's assuming TfB and V.V are the only developers who will ever touch the series.

I do get there isn't as much interest as before, as of now, but there is now way to know if it will come back in the remote future.
This series started with being interesting and curious because of the hybrid aspect and because it brought back Spyro, but rapidly became something which could exsist without necessarily relying on those aspects.

I agree that Academy isn't necessarily going to bring back the console games, but ruling out the possibility entirely is just as exaggerated.

Hoping we will at least have the Spyro remakes to keep us busy, in the near future.

Yeah, sorry, shouldn't have assumed it.

What I meant was that I hope there will be something to fill the Skylanders-shaped hole in our hearts, whether for the aesthetics, the gameplay or the spirit.
And as of now the Spyro Trilogy remakes seem like the most likely possibility.

A Hat in Time and Super Mario Odyssey came at the right time. smilie

Me too! I said it several times, they should do something like that, like they previously meant. Some sort of Diablo with different arcade, role and platforming mechanics, and on-line play. That would be amazing.

Drek95, I don't see the point of breaking up TfB to relate its staff to other projects to then hire another team to do their previous job. It doesn't make sense. I want more games, I really do, but I'm just being realistic. It's not a matter or hope, it's a matter of facts.

TfB is currently working on the new Star Control, if I'm not mistaken, and I don't even know if that series belongs to Activision.
Not to mention V.V. should be the ones working on the next entry, and they've been pretty busy with N.Sane Trilogy and Destiny 2, last year.

Being realistic means looking objectively at all the possibilities, and the return of the series in a remote future is one fof them.
The facts are that this year no new main console game was released, that no one announced anything related to the main series for 2018 and that a new RPG game is coming next year along with the third Academy's season.

I'll say it again: excluding the possibility entirely would be just as wrong as being certain that the series wil return next year as if nothing happened.
Where I do agree is saying that I'm not expecting new main titles for the next couple years, which also may or may not depend on the requested Spyro remakes, which Activision might prefer to focus on at the moment.

Star Control doesn't belong to Acti iirc. The "new" 3 is being developed mostly by Paul and his friend, and they made an agreement with the current holder of the IP to market it as such even if the game doesn't actually have SC in the name.

Acti is made of poor decisions that make a lot of money because of the audience and they'll gladly survive off of 2(4 if you count Overwatch and Crash) for the foreseeable future. As much as the possibilities are there, they'd be somewhat reasonable in any other company's hands; in Acti, the series is looking as good as dead as much as that sucks and as much as it's a perfectly good IP that could change genres no problem.

edit: TIL that Acti even patented forcing people in matchmaking to be matched with microtransaction buyers, skill gap be damned, and they match the buyers in easy matches so they feel like they should keep buying instead of the fact they were improperly matched. Boy they're a gift that keeps on giving. Between the fandom and the company, I think we'll get enough good Spyro for a decade with just a remake, and nothing else.

Seriously, it's SO EASY to make is a success again. As I said, SMO, but with Skylanders. It'd likely sell damn well, and as long as they have it every other year instead of every year, it'd stay fresh.

Yup. Portal Masters are just one facet of Skylanders. Make it so they were used so much they were restored to Skylands and now they just want us to be their guide, or something. It's way too cheap of an excuse to tie it to the weight of TTL.

Sorry, I might be particularly slow today, but I struggle to understand this part and particularly the connection with the rest of your post.
Maybe I'm just too sensitive about the subject, but I'd still be very cautious when considering the possibility of Spyro remakes: I personally take them almost for granted, and know it's a mistake, because it may make the disappointement even worse if they won't happen.

Completely agree about the future of the franchise, while not canon for the games Academy akready shows a world without the constant presence of Portal Masters from other dimensions is just as enjoyable.
It would also fit my own headcanon where Skylanders are only freed from theyr toy forms once, the first time they are placed on a Portal, and are then only summoned when needed.
Games themselves seem to have forgotten the toys-to-life aspect lore-wise as well, so no big deal.

Acti as of late is just begging to make the next Spyro reboot even worse than the last two in terms of development. The Crash remakes showed they're good with existing things so a Spyro remake wouldn't hurt, but for new entries, I don't trust them one bit. And with the fandom being as bitter as is, any new entries will get met with salt and vinegar, which might drive them to do even worse to once again "reintroduce new fans". I know the IPs aren't ever leaving them unless they go bankrupt or decide selling them off sounds like easy money, but at this point both only the devs have gotten anything good out of them, when Acti doesn't interfere.

Thanks, got it now, I misunderstood how I was supposed to read it.

I think new Crash games would be more likely than Spyro ones, definitely, even though I don't know how they would handle them.
Speaking with some friends which have been long time fans of the series, the general wish seems to be for future entries to stay as close as possible to the original trilogy: ideas such as more open levels, more gameplay options which feel connected to the core one and such seem to not be well received.

Guess nostalgia plays a big part there, but simplier and challenging side-scroller/3D platformers with these days graphics would still sell greatly, from what I heard.

I'd be the happiest person in the universe with my Classic Trilogy remakes, and possibly also a couple of the upcoming fan-projects, but I would't see the franchise getting anywhere as of now.
People mostly request the remakes themselves, or at most things which remember them of those either aesthetically or gameplay-wise, and I'd also expect "fans" to blame Skylanders for having turned it into a kid's thing, if it dared to come back to its whimsical and colorful origins.
Because they grown up but their memories didn't.

What makes me hopeful is seeing more and more 3D collectathon platformers popping around the various platforms, so the interest is still there, though touching such an iconic character makes things waaaaay harder than they should be...

I'm honestly more confused than anything by Acti right now. I'm going through my usual Youtube feeds and I'm starting to see Skylander advertisements pop up. Not "Hey buy Ro-Bo!", but basic ads for it, as though Activision is STILL putting money into pushing it, yet I think we all agree that it seems they are done with it for the foreseeable future.

so what is it Acti?

Skylanders, nothing specific, just in general.

I do feel like they want us to be confused on purpose, maybe so they can do whatever they want: they never said the series was over, so they can still create content which relates to it, yet they have said nothing on future console titles in months.
Must have other priorities, like the next Call of Duty.

Either way, what I get from them is a serious lack of interest and that's not a positive sign.
They might have simply payed longer for the ads, and are keeping them hoping they will help sell some more toys, but I see no active participation for their part.
Aside from the mobile RPG and Academy, and the former is old news by now.

The only console game for 2018 they confirmed was COD BO4. They haven't mentioned anything on Skylanders, Crash Bandicoot. Etc. The thing is though, what is activison brining to their lineup for 2018? There wasn't a new Skylanders game this year however, Destiny 2 and Nsane trilogy filled the gap for 2017. We know Destiny 3 isn't coming next year and I'm sure a new Crash isn't gonna come next year. Will we get Sky 7? We'll have to see. But again, what is Acti bringing to the table next year for NEW games. That's something we need to think about.

Y'know, I've still never seen Ro-Bow/LIM for sale in a retail store, and I have two TRUs within 40 min of me. Glad I imported a set after all.

Somehow the fact that was the only confirmed title for next year doesn't surprise me.
I wasn't aware of the situation, but boy, you can bet Call of Duty will always receive attention from them.

I guess Spyro remakes might not be even less far-fetched after all, if there really isn't anything major coming up besides the annual FPS.
Guess we would have at least heard of Skylanders 7 by now, if it were to be released in 2018.
With Destiny out, and maybe some Crash-related announcements at the PlayStation Experience, what would they have left?

Remember Destiny is an expansion-heavy franchise, so it's more than expected for it to get new big expansions like the first one, probably that's one of the things we'll get next year.

They usually confirm the next COD a year before its release they've been doing that for a while now. Both COD and Skylanders have different anouncment/confirmation schedules. Now IF a Spyro remaster happens, that wouldn't come out until 2019. As for Crash there's a rumour that he's gonna appear in Playststion all stars 2 and if the rumour is right, the game AND Crash's inclusion will be revealed at Paris games week on the 30th this month. Either way, I highly doubt Acti would just release one new game next year.
