Zap was one of the first characters we purchased outside of the starter kit, and he came in a 3 character pack that also included Hex and Dino Rang (will review those characters separately).
Zap is a Water Dragon of the Water Element. His starting abilities include:
* Health: 260
* Speed: 50
* Armor: 24
* Critical Hit: 30
* Elemental Power: 25
His primary power (A Button) allows him to breathe bursts of electricity. His secondary power (B Button) allows him to leave a trail of sea slime behind him that enemies can get stuck in. The trail is temporary and only lasts a few minutes. He's a decent character, not the fastest runner, but not super slow either. And of course, being a water character means that he can swim, which allows him access to some areas that other characters can't get to.
Now, all of this is BEFORE any upgrades. Once you've collected enough gems, coins, and other treasure, you can use these to trade in to Persephone the Fairy (once you find her) in exchange for Character Upgrades. Character upgrades give you options to improve Primary and Secondary abilities, and to even add a Tertiary ability.
Some of Zap's upgrades include: increasing his Primary Power to shoot his electricity blasts further and do increased damage, and increasing his Secondary Power (Sea Slime) to electrify the slime trail and zap enemies that get caught in it (this one is my favorite of Zap's upgrades).Read more ›
Starting off with an electric bolt spit, and a stunning power slide ((Think of a snail slime trail, that stuns enemies for you to slaughter them)) Zap leads the way to power-housing most of the game. He also shocks anything that gets close to him, giving you a light edge to whatever draws near.
I've had a blast playing with friends using him. :) I'm sure you will too.
It's hard to say much good about Zap apart from the design. The one thing he has going for him is speed. Zap is very fast, with one of his moves being a 'sea slime' move that propels him forward, leaving a trail of slime behind that stuns and damages enemies. This will be your main way of getting around because it's so quick, and navigating through levels is a breeze.
And that about does it for the pros! What's so bad about Zap, you might be asking? While I did say in my review of the Skylanders game that there's no such thing as a bad Skylander...that every one is good in their own way, I still stand by that. But compared to all the others, Zap is at the bottom of the barrel. His two main powers are a lightning bolt shock that he can shoot, and the sea slime rush. The lightning bolts are incredibly weak and only worth using if you choose to upgrade this attack as fast as possible. If you're in an area with a lot of enemies, there's a good chance that by the time you've killed one of them, the others will have ganged up on you. Your best bet is to slide around with the sea slime move while shooting or play tag with the enemies.Read more ›
Zap is fantastic at long range attacks, he also has a handy "sea slime slide", it's really called that, that lets him slide away quickly, leaving enemies trudging in the sticky slime. Zaps A ability makes him shoot about 4 balls of electricity at a time, before having to wait a bit to "recharge". Zap's B ability is the sea slime slide. He slides on slime from the sea (the name totally gives it away) that leaves enemies chasing him from running, to struggling to even walk in the slime. Later, he can upgrade to be able to shoot a ball of electricity at the slime to electrocute it, sending sparks flying everywhere along the slime. This way, stuck enemies will be continuously shocked! Together, the slime slide and lightning make it a breeze to destroy your enemies from a distance, which your lightning, or watch them helplessly get shocked to death in your electrocuted sea slime. Just to make it even better, Zaps Z ability (on the nun-chuck) allows him to summon a huge wave. It slams right into enemies, the force immediately destroying them. You can also hold down Z to ride the wave!
Here are Zap's stats:
Overall: I think Zap is a great Skylander. He makes up for the lack of strength with mischievous attacks of lightning, and shocking slime.
I really recommend Zap, I promise he'll be a great player in your collection of Skylanders.
