Spyro the Dragon is a 3D platformer for the PlayStation developed by Insomniac Games in 1998. Originally conceived as a kid friendly IP for the system (since most of their big successes like Tomb Raider or Metal Gear Solid were at least T-rated), it has since become one of the most beloved PlayStation franchises of all time.

The evil Gnasty Gnorc, after he hears some unflattering things said by the dragons about him, unleashes a spell that turns all the dragons into crystal. Only Spyro, who was playing hooky at the time, was able to avoid the spell, so he is tasked with rescuing the dragons and recovering the lost gems and dragon eggs.

The original three games were ported to PlayStation Network as a PSone Classic.

Completion Tips[]

To get to the final stage, you must have all dragons and eggs, as well as 12000 gems. The final stage has the last 2000 gems.

Tree Tops is easily the hardest stage to complete with all dragons and gems because of the final jump. The trick is to find a different area that gives you a Supercharge, then use it to charge off the ramp and jump to the island.
