Let me show you some supercharged vehicles
So Skylander Superchargers was released a little way back – don’t fret, a review is on the way, or you can go read about the game out there on the big internet. In the meantime, Activision has been so kind to ship a couple vehicles my way, which is just awesome.
Be aware that there is 20 vehicles and 20 Superchargers (Skylanders) – a matching pair will grant mods to the vehicle and add some special skills that gives an advantage, like more damage to enemies and more speed. You can’t activate and drive a vehicle everywhere in the game – vehicle sections are laid out for you, and the game asks you to add the vehicle (with applied Class – land, water or air) to the portal when it needs it. Main game only make use of land vehicles, and the starter pack includes the vehicle (Spitfire with Hot Streak, though Wii and Wii U version will sport Donkey Kong and his vehicle).
Let’s start with Dive Bomber, a cool looking submarine in green, blue and white. Being a submarine, it can dive within the games limit, but also makes it available to jump over obstacles above the water line. It can shoot torpedoes with homing functionality.
Second up is Hot Streak, I was provided the special E3 Edition, in yellow and orange with glimmer in the see-through plastic. Not bad. The car is able to do dash attack and make use of a flame thrower in order to defeat enemies.
Third and last, but not least, Sea Shadow is up.As a weapon, this sea vehicle has some sort of plasma canon which destroys enemies like a hot butterknife does to butter. Seemingly all sea vehicles can dive, which makes sense.
To top it off, the hardware, the vehicles themselves you can hold in your hands, has moving parts! That was something I really didn’t expect. Check the gif here to see;
