One day, Bianca spent a few hours in the library researching ideal vacation spots for a trip she was planning for Spyro, Hunter and herself. With all the travel books, Bianca mistakenly left the Sorceress' Spell book behind. Finding the book, Grendor was inspired by an ingenious plan. Flipping through the pages, he found himself a transformation spell to change his meager frame into a towering mass of muscle and brainpower! Wasting no more time, he read the spell aloud; too hasty even to notice the book was turned upside down. Grendor wound up with bulk and brainpower all right, but in the form of two heads, and a migraine in both of his thick skulls.
Spyro: Season of Ice is the first Spyro game to appear on the GBA. The first Spyro game to be made by a developer other then Spyro's creators Insomniac Games, Digital Eclipse have done a decent enough job on this game to make it playable and replayable.
Season of Ice takes you, as Spyro, to the Fairy Realms in order to save them from an evil menace. Set shortly after Year of the Dragon, Season of Ice continues with a slightly linked story but really it's not the greatest story you'll have ever encountered.
Here's the official word on the story from the SpyroTheDragon.com website:
And here's my description of the opening part to the game...
Hunter mentions that she hasn't been carrying the Spell Book for a few days which is news to Bianca but she finds out that she no longer has it on her. She realises that she must have left it in the library when she got the travel book for their vacation. As she sets off to find her book, Hunter, Spyro and Sparx head off to help the fairies.

Gems are once again the currency of the world, and once again you'll be needing to collect it all to get 100% completion.
|Gem Colour||Gem Value|
Gems are once again in the same places as usual. In flammable baskets, chargeable vases, locked chests, inside Rhynocs and just lying around on the ground.
And as usual Sparx is Spyro's health meter.
|Sparx Colour||Hits Left|
To regain Sparx's health just flame a small animal such as a sheep that will give out a butterfly. Each butterfly will regain one health point.
Strangely enough, for a world filled entirely with fairies, there are no progress saving fairies in the whole game. None. So every time you die, you'll be taken all the way back to the start of the level and have to redo everything except collecting gems and freeing fairies.
Well, that's enough of that then. On to the walkthrough, getting started with Autumn Fairy Home.
