Gem Locations

This Spyro game is no different from any previous version as they still are hiding the gems away in all the same places. For those who have yet to experience a Spyro game before, here are the types of locations that gems will be hidden in:

Gem Most of the gems you'll see will be found lying around, waiting for you to come and pick them up. Sparx can do most of the dirty work here.
Basket You'll also find plenty of these baskets strewn around, they're vulnerable to both your flame and charge attacks.
Vase Similar to the basket, but you can't open them with your flame, instead you will need to charge into these, though only requiring a small tap.
Banner Ripto's Banners can be found on walls around the Dragon World, flame them to get the gems that somehow are hiding inside.
Locked Chest There are four different coloured locked chests; Gold, Purple, Green and Red. You'll require two halves of the same coloured key in order to open them, and they can contain either gems or an item that you may be looking to collect.
Rhynoc And as with almost all of the previous games, you'll get gems from killing your enemies, the Rhynocs, though only the for the first kill, the rest of the time they'll drop nothing.

Starting/Saving/Loading a Game

To start a new game you'll have to go to the initial main menu when you start the game up, select Start New Game and then select one of the three spots for your save. Remember which one this is as you'll need to load the game from it. Saving a game is as easy as pausing and selecting Save Game.


The game has only three options for you to alter:
Music: On/Off - turns the music on or off
Sound FX: On/Off - turns the game sounds (such as your fire breath) on or off
Speech FX: On/Off - turns the squeaking known as speech on or off

Byrd Rescue

This option has three different types of missions for you to do. Head to Head where you compete against another player, Cooperative where you work together and Single Player where you work by yourself, and isn't a multiplayer game. These will only become playable after you complete the game so you may have to wait a while before you can start playing these. To play them you will need two GBAs and a link cable.

#373 MaleforSxC 08:39:08 26/05/2012

It seems like attack of the rynocs is one of the most forgotten spyro games... It's too bad because I really like it. There is one thing I never understood about it, though. Why is Ripto in control of the rynocs, it was riptocs last game right?

Yeah dude no one is ever too old for Spyro I'm 15 and I'm completely in love with this game. It feels like an Insomniac one. Like an 'authentic' Spyro game. Got it at a car boot sale for £2.50.

I really enjoy playing this game! It is my first and only game on my game boy!! It is actually my sister's game, but she is too old to play it now! (she's like sixteen) so I claimed it as my own! I completed it a few years ago. It took me a few tries to figure out how to defeat ripto though!smilie

FAR TOO EXPENCIVE (left caps on) i got this game in the original box and has never parted fom it
#367 MaleforSxC 19:38:04 23/04/2012
There are some ones like Ice and Flame and Enter the Dragonfly and HEro's Tail on Amazon second hand. YEar of the Dragon is able first hand really expensive.
#366 ghostfury 17:38:01 15/04/2012
i think you can get them cheap and mint condition on car boot sales if not ebay but i dont recomend it
#365 HexDisciple 23:05:50 10/04/2012
Also...is there any way to play one of the old games?
Please, I'm desperate to rediscover the Spyro Fan within me.
Won't you help an appretice in the ways of Spyro?
#364 HexDisciple 22:04:57 10/04/2012
The last time I played a Spyro game other than Skylanders was like 7 years ago...I loathe what I lost :'(
Two questions:
1-Is there anyway to get any of the older games in Europe now?
2-Do you think they'll continue the main Spyro series?
#363 Titancrasher01 04:25:48 07/04/2012
I always thought of this game as "Spyro's LONG Scavenger Hunt".
#362 ExtremeSpyro 13:27:09 19/03/2012
This is like Season of Flame, but better. The main reason why I liked this game so much is because you could change Spyro's color! (He looked awesome in red) 8.5/10 Another GBA classic!
#361 RedSpyro123 16:16:35 17/03/2012
On the first line, that should be cheat code(s). My bad!
