Disney Infinity is an action-adventure sandbox game similar to Skylanders. The players use figures bought in a store as their characters. The figure must be placed on a special pad, which then reads what character was just placed on the pad and transfers it on to the game, where the player assumes control of the character. Additional, flat 'discs' can also be bought and placed on the pad to unlock additional gear and appearances of the 'Toybox', which is the starting location of the player and a place where they can play and build to their heart's content.
New versions of Disney Infinity, Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes and Disney Infinity 3.0 were released in 2014 and 2015 respectively, adding new original story material from Marvel and Disney movies, as well as Star Wars, Spider-man and Finding Dory in the latter version.
