Are the elemental realms really as big as levels? Are they worth buying one Sensei per element?


- - -

If you have not much to spend and would only do it because of the levels length, than I say.... hmm... well...
Levels don't seem to be as long as the story levels. but still in total there are 10 levels to play...

Only thing you may use to get a little cash is the magic items,. which only give 200 to 250- each



Magic Items can be used within 24 hours from use I would assume? but since you've really only had it for a day you probably can't really answer it yet.
Hope someone finds the best way to make some cash fast in this game.

OK here, by pressing the Spoiler tag, you'll find a list of features or things I've found. this include some info about the M.A.P, as well as character information.
OPEN AT YOUR OWN COST

I mean it, are you seriously sure?


- Imaginators have a 30 character name limit.
- You can upgrade your skylander from anywhere now, by just accessing the manage page.
- There are no Winged Sapphires, so you have to grind cash to upgrade your bad boys.
- you can only take 20 in-game e-hum Selfies. before it starts complaining to delete one to add anther one.
- The M.A.P is holy mother huge, and it does contain some secrets.
- The Academy is small as heck.
- The Original TT music does play while being in the Academy.
- Mags is there, (DUH) Buzz and Flynn (Ultra DUHH) as well. Celi and Tessa haven't made a single appearance yet...
- Spyro is the only one who has a new voice.
- Chill Bill and Broccoli Guy give commentary while you are in the battle Arena.
- Hugo will reward you with one imaginite chest for bringing books to him.
- Replaying levels will reward you with new imaginite chests.
- During the Loading Screen, there are ads that try to get you to buy crystals.
---- Along with that is a "Platinum Chest" That yields 20 special items/weapons/ etc. Most likely something that can be Purchased from the so called "imaginite Vault"
- There are many 4th Wall Breaking sequences. When King Pen levels up, he'll say: "I'll accept this levelling up... From whoever just said that."
- When in the M.A.P your walking speed is doubled, to move quicker around the map.
- Surprise attacks (Ambushes) can happen while you are in the M.A.P. This doesn't count for the Academy.



Suprises, I love those surprises.

Not money farming, money sink. Stuff to spend it on, I mean. Upgrades someday stop coming.

Nah, I'm fine with the current pace of info, it'd be boring to have everything at once.

Also, teeeny tiny selfish question which is totally fine if you don't want to answer. What's the color of Bad Juju's clothing(not tail) on the poster? The yellow lights make it hard to distinguish.
I might or might not be doing tons of fanart so I need the color reference.

Is there a Collection Screen?

If so, does it show the # of Crystals?

# of Chests?

# of Skylanders (variants perhaps)?

Are the fighting pbysics more similar to Swap Force or Trap Team? And does it feel like a complete gane to you? SuperChargers felt really lazy and incomplete to me, so this matters a lot.

How does the M.A.P. speed boost work with Skylanders who already have a speed increasing ability? (Like Zap's slide, or Blast Zone's/Boom Jet's lower halves)

Speaking of which, if you or anyone else who has the game has him, is Stink Bomb's lower half stupid fast or actually ok?

What are the damage numbers like? Are they low like in Superchargers or too high like Trap Team?

Speaking of the difference between those two, do melee hits have a slight delay of a frame like in SC? I remember that made Short Cut and other fast melee characters trash.

So the figures do not even get a stat sticker anymore with their artwork???? Losing the cards was bad but nothing at all is even worse. Hope they are included but just not pictured.

And although it was known, shocked they reused that poor excuse for a portal. I'll be using my Trap Team Portal only.

Yeah whenever a melee character actually hit something, it'd cause a delay by like a frame, but in a game where fighting plays an important role, that makes all the difference.

I brought up Short Cut because he's the most obvious example of this. His Cutting Frenzy went from insanely powerful in Trap Team to literally a hit or two in one second. And with the damage decrease on all of the characters from before, it was the worst.

I looked up some of the more recent gameplay and it looks like that delay is absent. I could be wrong, I really only asked to be 100% sure of it
Bifrost Platinum Sparx Gems: 6666
#321 Posted: 21:06:15 29/09/2016
"Freeze on impact" is called Hitstun, was really stupid on SC. Characters like Bash are unplayable with that no matter the path because the enemy isn't affected, and others like Nightfall are forced to go to a different path with ranged because it's the only way to deal consistent damage.

Another change since people are asking that we saw on gameplay is that spinning enemies are now affected by hazard moves, like Tae Kwon Crow's fire. Before it'd ignore the damage and do the block noise repeatedly but now they take hits as long as they're right in the middle of it. It's a nice change for sure, though it doesn't help many characters.

Oh yeah I noticed that too. It also kind of looks like they can take ranged damage while spinning where they used to be invincible. I think it'd probably make it easier to deal with them.

Does anyone remember those spinning Evilikin in Wilikin Workshop? Those were the worst. So much damage and barely any time in between to actually hit them.

Speaking of, (something I've said far too much in my posts) how do enemies here compare to older enemies? Obviously we have some returning enemies, but I mean in terms of diversity. I really liked the snipers in Land of the Undead and I'm glad to know they're back

Skipped past the character spoilers but I read the M.A.P ones:
How are the ads? Are they like the ones in superchargers or are they "BUY A CRYSTAL NOW" levels of obvious?

Also...
Walking speed doubled?! YES, THANK YOU TOYS FOR BOB FOR FINALLY MAKING NON-SLOW CHARACTERS!!! This eliminates my one concern about the M.A.P! Also, RANDOM ambushes? Now THAT'S what I call replay value.


The game sounds amazing so far, despite having a few flaws. I can't wait to get it now!

Indeed, that was pretty easily inferred from watching the E3 videos... and
the fact that the chests spit out random items for different players

Also, if you've reached the endgame, what is Kaos' final boss like. Finally, Imaginators level cap- how far can you level up your Skylanders initially? Thanks if you can answer these.

Hope this isn't a spoiler for anyone but, speed boost in the M.A.P.?
You mean like in LEGO games where your characters start running after walking for a short amount of time in the overworld...?

Oh yes, YES.
This is perfect, and I'll take it as a hint towards the vastity of it.

I'm curious though, do Skylanders have a different animation when affected by that boost or do they simply walk faster like they would do with hats?
Man, between this new information and all those spoiler I won't touch the hype is becoming almost unbearable. smilie

I think Soul Gem videos (even in bad quality) is something we'd all be perfectly fine with having to tide us out until release. Make it a series of Vines or maybe even mute (though actually not a bad idea seeing as how we dont really need the music) so that we may all watch.

Si vous plait? Please? Por favor? I doubt anyone wants the strikes so Id be ok with descriptions of attacks instead of the videos themselves

Because the game has not launched yet, posting any video would open the people who got the game early to litigation. Right now, they are not at fault (the distributor who sent the game out early is entirely to blame)... but posting video would change that.

It makes me happy and smile to see so much of you guys enjoying the content that has been shown. I haven't seen many Skype calls in the last 2 days. I've shared some gameplay I've allowed people to take in game pictures. With all the information that has been given I think that it is time to start breaking off and cool it down. It is best to keep at least a few things a secret. No of course I will still answer people's questions in private messages. But to know that I do not wish to be overwhelmed with questions because it has happened already. I do enjoy people asking questions so don't mind if you really want to ask me anything. I am just happy to share what I have experienced to give me honest opinion about the game so far. From the reactions on the Skype group that I was in yesterday. I can rest assure you that the game is well received by a lot of people. People are saying that it is way better than superchargers and that it is one of the best game so far off Skylanders. Even though I think Swap Force was the best. But anyways thank you everyone.
