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.

Fun game, but I hated the reward for completing all the quests and getting 100%, was not worth it. smilie

Played the first two GBA games not long after they came out, but I didn't know they had made a third one (lack of advertising, perhaps?) until much later, so I never got around to playing it. I found the first two games to be decent overall, but very tedious at times, especially season of ice, with all of its blind glides and frustrating flying levels. For anyone still out there reading, how does this third one compare to season of ice/flame?

Now that the memories have come back, I take back calling season of ice a decent game (flame's still good though). After reading more of people's thoughts comparing AtoR favorably to flame, I think I'll give it a try.

Really fun addicting game
Unlike the Season of ice this game was a lot of fun, vibrant colourful and relatively easy to pick up.
The best GBA Spyro game of the lot
