Skylanders Lost Islands 

 

Nine times out of ten free apps are a waste of time. Nine times out of ten free apps are money pits. Skylanders Lost Islands tries to leverage the Skylanders name. Alas it winds up hurting the franchise. As a free app Skylanders Lost Islands is constantly begging for insane amounts of money. All to play boring missions over and over again. Once you realize you are paying over and over again to do the same things you will delete this app.

The one saving grace for Skylanders Lost Islands is you can enter codes for real world Skylanders you purchased for the home console and Nintendo 3DS video games. This does not even lessen the focus on paying even more money to the free app. It does allow families to progress in this free app faster.

What gets me though is Skylanders Lost Islands will try and get you to pay six dollars for a Skylander in this free app. For a few dollars more I can buy the same one in a store, use it in the free app - plus I can use it in the Wii U, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii versions. Why purchase anything within this free app? It does not make economical sense whatsoever in my opinion.

Like most free app village builders Skylanders Lost Islands has a small look to the graphics. With the pinch out zoom method families can zoom in to watch timers dissipate. The game play in Skylanders Lost Islands is essentially do something and wait however many minutes for it to complete. It quickly gets to the point where you play for a minute, leave it alone for hours and then come back again. That is if you remember and even feel like getting back on that Ferris wheel.

There are bright colors, and Skylanders sounds in Skylanders Lost Islands. None of those do much to help this game thanks to its abysmal game play elements. Bottom line Skylanders Lost Islands is not a fun free app, and it constantly has a hand out wanting money from you. Just another repeat pay to play app.
