Spyro: Fusion

Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy and Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage are two separate but interlocking games on the Gameboy Advance. They both have the same overall storyline and almost identical gameplay. As with some other Spyro games they also have a different name Spyro: Fusion and Crash: Fusion. The only difference is that the Fusion games have multiple languages.

The game that I will be focusing on will be the Spyro incarnation of the two. While the Crash Bandicoot game is not needed to fulfil the story mode in Spyro Fusion, it is needed if you are wanting to collect all of the cards in the game.

The basics of gameplay in Spyro Orange require you to wander a main 'world' in order to collect as many gems as you can to help you in opening up all of the mini-games which all require a set amount of gems to open up for the first time.

The Story

At the beginning as you enter the story mode, you will see a short dialogue between Ripto and Neo Cortex as they discuss how to take control of their worlds. The following is exactly what is said:

RIPTO: So it's agreed, then. We'll work together to rid ourselves of Spyro and Crash
CORTEX: Yes! Your army of Riptocs will be even more formidable now that I have genetically modified them.
RIPTO: True! They have strength! They know no fear! And they are cleverly disguised!
CORTEX: Activate your Portals and we shall soon conquer this measly planet!

PROFESSOR: Spyro, I'm glad you're here!
HUNTER: Something strange is happening in Dragon Castles.
PROFESSOR: Strange indeed! Mysterious Portals have been appearing across the land. Even worse, crazed orange beasts have been causing trouble.
SPYRO: It sounds like Ripto is up to no good again.
PROFESSOR: I'll see what I can find out about these Portals. Meantime, Spyro, try to get rid of those monsters.
SPARX: Let's go!

You are then thrown out into Dragon Castles ready to start your 'adventure'.

The Controls

Here are your controls for use in the homeworlds (controls per mini-game are given at the start of each one)

Gameplay Basics

Here are a few things that you should know before playing this game:

  • The game is a side-scrolling game and as such it is much harder to avoid enemies.
  • You have no ability to charge at all.
  • There are five mini-games in each world each with a symbol on the top, once you have completed all five at least once, the end of world portal will open allowing you to access the boss.
  • Red gems are unlimited and reappear after every time you either die or re-enter the level, however all other varieties of gems that you may come across are limited and will only appear once

Now it's time to get started with the game.

V Spyro and Crash are like Sony's mascots so putting them in the same game is an ingenious idea...noob do your research..

I still have both versions of this, and i gave up after about half an hour.

Why would you mix Spyro with Crash Bandicoot?

They backed the wrong horse when they picked Crash.

The Crash version is better.

If in chienies spyro is spelled ripto then is ripto spelled spyro

Uhh this is all my fault if I wouldn't have spelled that then it would be darkspyro.nt still

To icons in a bad game full of mini games. Sounds familiar to a certain Wii and DS that I hate.

#634 rfishi 01:37:33 18/11/2013
Lol, I suppose I am simply hating, but isn't it weird that they show Japanese versions of the games and give info of the Japanese versions, but then in the rules of your posts, you can't type in foreign languages?

Very bad game. It was mostly just mini games.
