Children's book review : Skylanders Swap Force Master Eon's Official Guide

They're swappable! They're unstoppable! They're the Skylanders SWAP Force!

If you have a little Skylanders fan in your midst, they're bound to be impressed by the latest Skylanders Official Guide, released at the start of the summer by Puffin Books.

Master Eon, the spiritual leader of the Skylanders and the greatest Portal Master of them all, presents his own personal guide to Skylanders SWAP Force, the third installment of the game.

Readers are guided through the heroes, villains, places and power-ups to be found in the magical realm by Master Eon.

 An augmented reality feature has been added so that, by scanning the Zapp code on each page with your smart phone or tablet, you can swipe through all 256 SWAP Force character combinations, adding an extra dimension to the reading experience. You can see how that works in the video above.

It is packed with hints and tips, with a bit of myth and legend thrown in for good measure.

This is the third in the series of Master Eon's Official Guides, following his guides to Skylanders Spyro's Adventure and Skylanders Giants. It includes character profiles, game tips and a level-by-level run-down of this innovative, ground-breaking game world. This is the first of the guides to include the new Augmented Reality feature.
