Most recently, zombies have been the flavour of the year. Who remembers when horde modes were the gaming flavour of the month before zombies hit the big time? Well, kid-friendly titles like Skylanders Trap Team can't really add zombies, so developer Toys For Bob will be adding its own horde mode in the form of the Kaos Doom Challenge, named after Emperor Kaos, "the most infamously evil villain in all of Skylands!" What's more, Kaos wants to tell you all about it:
In my glorious “Kaos Doom Challenge,” snivelling Portal Masters like you can feebly battle through increasingly difficult waves of my personal minions using your ridiculous army of Skylanders.
And since you obviously won’t stand a chance, I, Kaos, will graciously allow you to build defensive towers and battle my fearsome allies using any of your Skylanders from your entire collection. However, when you bumbling Portal Masters utterly fail to progress past my hoards of evil underlings, the “Mystery Box of Doom” will be opened - which will then incomprehensibly spit out gigantic villains that will completely destroy you! And because I am benevolent and merciful, I will even let you fools use any of your pitiful Trapped Villains to fight them.
In case you are in any doubt as to the challenge that you will be facing, Kaos also wants to remind you just how evil he can be:
A recent evil study of a thousand trolls revealed that nine out of ten agree that I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer to have ever conquered Skylands. Naturally, I had every tenth one banished to my “Kaos Doom Challenge” to test the effectiveness of my 100 waves of ultimate evil doom - and they were never heard from again. So let’s just say EVERYONE agrees – I am the most powerful and impressive evil doer ever.
Of course, most people don't like evil doers. Most people will be more interested in the characters as which they can play to help fend off the evil from taking over the Skylands. As such, take a look at Snap Shot who will croc and roll in his efforts to beat Kaos.
Skylanders Trap Team will conquer Kaos on October 2nd in Australia, October 5th in North America and October 10th in Europe. Meanwhile, I'm afraid that Kaos has gotten bored and has left the building. After all, he has a world to conquer. However, he asked me to tell you that he looks forward to crushing your spirits. "With loathing and disgust".
