SKY­LAN­DERS, ORIG­I­NALLY A col­lectable heavy ad­ven­ture spawned out of the Spyro The Dragon uni­verse, has evolved into a host of games across three gen­er­a­tions of con­soles and a pop­u­lar, multi sea­son Net­flix se­ries. It has picked up a lot of fans along the way, many of whom have been cry­ing out for mo­bile ex­pe­ri­ence to fill in the gap un­til the next full re­lease. Ring of He­roes is es­sen­tially a com­bi­na­tion of the “sum­mon a hero” RPG ex­pe­ri­ence that is com­mon on mo­bile, in­fused with the world and story of the Sky­lan­ders.

On the sur­face, there is a lot go­ing on here. Aside from the story mode (which is a unique story thread that hasn’t been in any other games or se­ries) there are PVP bat­tles, Dun­geon ex­plor­ing, and more. Play­ers build “teams” that are made up of clas­sic Sky­lan­der char­ac­ters and are em­pow­ered by their unique skills and syn­er­gies. Un­for­tu­nately, there is a lot of luck and repet­i­tive work re­quired to get the “bet­ter”, well known char­ac­ters which makes a lot of the mid-to-higher level bat­tles de­pen­dant on in-app pur­chases in or­der to be com­pet­i­tive.

That said, the art and graph­ics are spot on, and bat­tles are fun and easy to grasp. Sky­lan­der fans will have a ball build­ing their fan­tasy teams and play­ing through the story mode, which is en­gag­ing and canon within the uni­verse that has been built through the TV se­ries.
