Description
An absolutely irresistible little dragon - Spyro's colorful personality and attitude that we all know and love are captured perfectly in this game! Variety of moves: walk, run, glide, fly, charge, flame, roll, and jump. Power-ups: Super flame or Fireball for a limited time.
 
Spyro is a cute purple dragon in a bit of a pickle. Each of Spyro's dragon friends has fallen victim to the nefarious Gnasty Gnorc, who has turned them into crystals. Accompanied by Sparx the dragonfly, Spyro sets out to free his buddies, while collecting gems and dragon eggs. Sparx also serves as Spyro's health-o-meter, glowing gold when Spyro is healthy and turning dusky green as the tires. To boost his energy, Spyro can blast docile creatures with fire, turning them into butterflies, which Sparx transforms into much-needed fuel.

Fun with the Purple Dragon
by SPryo 30 Oct 2010

With its phenomenal success on the first run market the Sony Corporation finally decided to add this one to their Greatest Hits collection. Having first rented it on its initial release at my local video store and playing it way into the wee hours of the morning I knew that this one was a future video game purchase. Fly, shoot fire, and guess what-nothing dies! Everything turns into to butterflies! My 8 year old sister loves watching me play and playing this wonderful game herself, the controls are very, very kid oriented and you don't have to ever worry about the content of the game. If your little one likes video games but you are just a tad bit worried about what he/she is playing buy Spyro The Dragon with a sigh of relief, a guarantee for hours of peace and quiet around the house. Perfect gift, Go get it now!

This title has bright graphics in six well-developed worlds, each with several subworlds, including bogs, deserts, and ice worlds. Unlike some action games, in Spyro the Dragon the enemies are more fun than frightening. In the Peace Keepers world, for example, Spyro must burn down the monster soldiers' tent, sending one of the minions running out, quaking with fear or, if you're lucky, dropping his drawers and shooting a moon.

Spyro's movements (fire breathing, gliding, jumping, and climbing) require entry-level gaming skills. For this reason, Spyro the Dragon is an excellent title for youngsters or less experienced players, who want to play without having to master complex movement combinations.
