Category: Gateway to Glimmer
As the US flag indicates they're technically the NTSC versions of the games so they won't have any of the additional languages and Gateway to Glimmer is actually called Ripto's Rage in-game.
Things are heating up! Spyro, the feisty, fire-breathing dragon is back and he's ready to take on a whole new adventure in this sequel to the original Spyro! You must save the worlds of Avalar by defeating the dinosaur-riding Ripto and his evil minions.
Hopefully it won't suffer the same issues as the European release of Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer.
Thanks to crashpro for the heads up.
Players of the Nintendo DS version of the game might like to know that I have also posted solutions to all eighty of the Power Crystal Puzzles, though that was added a little while ago.
And for those of you who don't have the game but are still deciding whether or not to, I've collected a load of reviews together onto one page with links to the full articles if available so that you can judge based on other people's opinions of the game.
In other Spyro content news, I have finally finished adding all of the characters from Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer to the Character Guide.
I have also added a Records page for Glimmer as well as removing the Character Guide that I had on the site. This is to make it a lot better and more useful then it is so to stop you getting confused by the sheer awfulness of its current state, I've taken it down. I will get it back on the site soon though, so don't be too upset.
And after completion of the Year of the Dragon guide? Well the two GBA games that I have yet to do obviously. The only problem there is that I have yet to play either of them so I don't really know how long it'll take to write the guides for them.
Well, however much I manage to do by tomorrow, you are almost certain of an update of some kind. Oh, and just so you know, seeing as this method of making the guide is working better than the method I used for the Spyro the Dragon guide, I'll be using it again for Year of the Dragon when I get round to it.
I have updated the sidebar as well to include all the links that will be needed for this guide, however as you might expect, all but the introduction and Summer Forest links lead to a blank page with a sigh of 'Coming soon...' on them. This is again to prevent people from thinking that it's a bad link like the ones at the top were (I have now fixed the links that weren't working up at the top) while it's just that I haven't made the page yet. And I have also updated the Downloads section to be both easier to use, and it now has more things, including my Spyro Orange guide and my Spyro the Dragon guide. Make sure to go there too if you want to get all the maps from Attack of the Rhynocs.
And also note that I have altered the address to send e-mails to me. No longer send them to firstname.lastname@example.org as that address doesn't and hasn't worked in a while, now send them to email@example.com and you should get replied to within a day or two. Any e-mail sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org will not have gotten through and I won't have been able to read it. Sorry about that, but if you still need help or want to ask me anything, either send me another e-mail or post in the forums.
OK, more updates tomorrow hopefully.
While this does mean a longer wait for the initial part of the guide, it will mean that I will be able to complete the whole of the guide much faster. If this method works well then I'll use it for Year of the Dragon as well, if not then I won't. Simple as that.
Oh, and as you might have noticed, I got bored of writing the character/creature guide for the most part, but I am still working on it and it will next get updated soon with everything in a better order and a more accessible way of reading it then a huge long jumbled up list of random things. I will also try to add all the things from Spyro 2 as well, but obviously only after I have finished it for Spyro 1.
While I won't get started on that till tomorrow, it should start arriving pretty quickly since it's very nearly summer now.
Once it is next weekend though, then the guide should speed up and near completion by the 21st of July, hopefully begginning on Spyro 2 the same day. If I get ahead of schedule (as I hope I will) I will obviously not take so long to get everything completed. Amazing huh?
