While I understand that the Skylanders IP from Activision is popular in the western regions, personally I had only heard about it and not tried any of the games (except maybe for the first Spyro game decades ago). It puzzled me that developer and publisher Com2uS decided to rework the mobile game Skylanders Ring of Heroes and relaunch it in Asia recently, a region where I thought that the IP is almost obscure to most gamers. No matter, I decided to give the game a try.
I have played many character-collection turn-based mobile games in my time (trust me), and felt that Skylanders Ring of Heroes is just a very basic version of that. Everything from game modes to graphics are rather uninspired and plain. Yes, the in-game world is a colorful one, but elements such as the character/ monster designs and battle/ sound effects are simply not on par with recent gacha games releases. Personally, I felt that Com2uS dropped the ball on Skylanders Ring of Heroes, but it could just be me. As usual, gameplay is captured on BlueStacks.
