Supercharge your weapons with the elemental powers of rare Lightstones and become the most powerful Lightseeker ever! As your hero evolves, so does the world around you.

This has released now in the US, UK and CA and I'm sure they said other areas soon. It's an actual release not a softone

It was in beta since Nov. or Dec.,but only for the Kickstarters who funded the game. Its part of an entire Toys2Life eco system that includes smart toys, action figures, a physical CCG, that interface with the game thru Bluetooth and augmented reality. It's pretty cool.

The game is totally free without any of the f2p shenanigans.(ads, timers, IAP's) and you don't need any of the physical add-ons or toys to play or complete the game. I think they're going to treat this as a continual service with monthly updates & added content. I don't know how they intend to sustain this for long. I guess they're relying on the success of the sales of the toys which are really cool, but a little pricey.

The game is cool. If you played any of The Skylanders games on mobile then you're familiar with how this game plays. It's worth a look. The thing which I think will turn some people off is the online requirement to play,

Thats going to be the catch isnt it how well the cards or toys do to support the game. It could be like another disney you buy all the stuff and then they decide to drop it.

I guess we'll see. I like theseToys2Life games (Skylanders, Disney Infinity) I hope they do well and don't end up in the same situation. This Dev seems dedicated and really passionate about this game. Hopefully for the gamers and crowdfunders they stay invested long term

Aye they have been very active socially and with the public. Amazon.com and toys r us are going to be selling their stuff so it is a great start for a company I'd never heard of before the development of this game.

I even did the Kickstarter and the closed beta, didn't play much though as I knew they would reset progress.

The game looks a lot like dungeon hunter.

It definitely seems promising, But I'm definitely not a fan of the controls, at all. Ŵith no MFI support, and trying to play on my 12.9" iPad Pro, with small hands, is very frustrating.

Just tried it with no figures...and it's rather bland,lack of real story and dull combat,it look pretty but I expected especially because they mention Diablo as an inspiration to see something far better.On the other side there are no stamina,no iap,no auto attack but it's lacking something to actually be considered worth it,so basically it is not the Skylanders killer I was waiting for(Spyro must come back!) and even with the figures I don't think it have any chance to succeed,too simple,too linear,no exploration,no variety,the cutscene look uninspired and badly made(still pictures),it try to copy far too much Skylanders and talk like we were small babies.....basically it suck.
