With the release of the mobile version of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon recently I've completed work on a walkthrough for the whole thing. Clocking in at a maleficent 31KB you can either read the text file or the less monospaced HTML version of the walkthrough.

A warning for those of you not wanting to have Dawn of the Dragon spoiled is to not read through the walkthrough for a game you don't have. Saying that, I don't think there are any spoilers in there anyway but I could be wrong.

If you can speak French or want to see more footage of the console version of the game then JeuxVideo have a video interview with Jean-Marie Nazaret of Etranges Libellules, the interview is translated here in the forum if you can't be bothered to do it yourself.

Thanks go to Spyro VS Evil and dragonwar2 for posting the interview and translation.

And in site related news, I've recently made some maps for the Sgt. Byrd speedways in Spyro: A Hero's Tail which should help locate where all those turrets are hiding and perhaps improve your time through the course.

Thanks go to Neal of SpyroWorld for spotting the mobile screens.

The folks at Spyro's Lair have added their first new mini-game since release. Wings of Fury sees you play as either Spyro or Cynder (there are apparently some differences between them), in the new Dawn of the Dragon style, flying through up to ten levels of near constant air combat.

You can find the game by clicking on Activities once you're in the Lair.

Unfortunately the game doesn't appear to add your score to your Spyro's Lair scoreboard but you can still mark your achievement on a highscore table with a 3 letter name at the end. Edit July 1st: It does record your score to Spyro's Lair now.

It's another year that has rolled on by and darkSpyro celebrates its fourth birthday. Since this time last year we've had the addition of a guide for the latest game, The Eternal Night, a new guide of the old game Enter the Dragonfly and the rapid expansion of the Guidebook which now contains over 700 characters.

As for statistics, well the site has received over 30 million hits, the forum has broken the 1000 registered members mark and there are now currently around 175,000 posts. The forum has gained several new features including the much requested Private Message service.

What's in the future? I made a comment regarding a new Guidebook last year, that's progressed since then and is still on its way, as too are reworkings of the Season of Ice and Attack of the Rhynoc sections. And of course a guide for the new game Dawn of the Dragon once it becomes available towards the end of the year.

It appears that much like the previous years, the banner on Sierra's forum is indeed the new boxart. You can see them all (except PS3 for some reason) over on Amazon.com.
