If you're of a cynical bent, you might take one look at a Skylanders iOS game and let out a howl. In fact, if you're of a cynical bent, it's probably for the best you avoid looking at the App Store altogether.
In this instance, though, your rage would be misplaced. Skylanders: Cloud Patrol is an absolute blast, mixing the immediacy of smartphone gaming with the gorgeous cartoon style of its console siblings, and adding the extra incentive of freemium collectables.
If you're unfamiliar with the Skylanders concept, it's a fusing together of action figure and video game. You buy a toy version of one of the heroic monsters, and via some sort of technological wizardry you can use it in-game.
A brilliantly put together little game, Skylanders: Cloud Patrol quickly becomes an addictive way to waste a few minutes, whether you care about the characters or not
