I didn't play it, but it's gonna be sad to see the last remaining piece of Skylanders die. Now the only thing keeping Spyro alive and relevant is the potential Spyro 4 or if they decide to remake a different Spyro game. I still think Skylanders would be great as a free to play game, maybe even a MOBA or something. It's not the same as collecting figures but that fad is long gone unfortunately and digital is the way of the future. I think it could work, especially if they put it on switch and other consoles as well as mobile.

Funny how people are even surprised.. game basically died on arrival, literally got 0 advertizing and became a fossil once they decided it was a good idea to kill the progress of the 5 people who even played this by making this worse, revamped version, this game felt more like a bootleg than anything official.

Whatever, Skylanders is dead, Activision doesn't even have faith in the original Spyro anymore and i honestly don't want that joke of a company to touch Spyro or Skylanders ever again, sad that it had to be this way but oh well.

Dang, Skylanders is basically slowly fading out.

Well, at least we have the memories...and the figures of the main games.

I don't understand why does this game need the servers for single player. And even if it's for things like cloud saves, then how hard could it possibly be to change it to save on the device?

It's such a shame that games like this just...cease to exist. Same thing recently happened to Dr. Mario World. I guess that is the inevitable fate of all mobile games, sooner or later.

mobile games are only made to milk your wallet, and when the earnings stop the game get shutdown. lesson from this is: never waste your time playing mobile games.

I'm just now hearing about this. The franchise is truly dead now.

Can't believe that's it for Skylanders. What I would do to go back to when the series was flourishing back in 2011-2014 again. </3
