Hey guys! Activision just said that some stupid witch smilie killed Malefore and smilie and smilie just put him to sleep this is a crime agianst the old games! I wanted to read these issues but then I find out they're trying to spread this garbage promoting one useless character that already has enough fans (IF there are any and sadly I know there are) Whoever writes the comic just made a huge mistake

Aura24, I meant their lives after that "survival," if that's what it truly was.
#11484 Aura24 08:02:08 30/01/2015
They survived, if anyone fully understood the ending after the credits.
#11483 Windbringer 21:00:11 29/01/2015
Believe me when I say this: I still want to know what the hell happened to Spyro and Cynder.

No, the Legend of Spyro and Skylanders are two completely different universes. They just took story elements from the Legend of Spyro into Skylanders, such as the floating islands, but different Spyro, Cynder and different Malefor.
#11480 Skylandersgirl 16:51:03 09/01/2015
Was it Spyro as made skylands for in the end of the game it was flying islands

DragonFang, DarkSpyro has all of the controls for the game here:
So it's L2 for PS2/3, Left Trigger for Box and + for Wii.
Hope this helps! smilie

They didn't have the right voice actor for Volteer unfortunately... Also, WHATS WITH THEIR POWERS! Weren't they supposed to have lost their powers in the first game!??!?!
#11476 PhotonTH 03:00:38 31/12/2014
Is anyway else upset at the fact there's a cut out cutscene between Volteer and Cyril? That could've added so much personality to the game. I also really love those two, Volteer is best guardian.
