News and Updates

5:47 AM - Tuesday the 21st of February, 2006 - by dark52
Aside from what may or may not be a vague prediction on IGN, there's still been no news of a new Spyro game. There's a similarly vague thing about it here (which gives a 3rd quarter release for Spyro 6 on the PS2, GameCube, GBA and DS) too.

In site news, I've put the Ripto Quest section back in action and have added a brand new Spyro the Dragon section for the Mobile game bearing that name. You'll find them in the 'Other Games' link on the right. There's also a new alternative link to the proper games sections just above it.

I've altered the news archives for individual years so that they show a calendar of the year rather then producing a long page of news items, though that option is still there. I might as well mention the forum changes too.

UPDATE: I've also just added a rather pointless poll on the right.

Welcome to the brand new look to darkSpyro. We've got the same content as before and a little extra (minus Ripto Quest which will be back soon anyway). Use the image links on the left to navigate your way around the games. All other links are on the right as well as the advert, remember that that's the only thing paying for the hosting.

Anyway, there may be some new glitches and mistakes around the site whilst I try and iron any out. If you wouldn't mind mentioning any you find in the comments for this news post I'd be very grateful. And just so you know, the random image selection in the top right isn't switched on just yet, I'll probably get round to doing that tomorrow when I fix up the banner as well.

As well as all that, I've written a brand new guide, for the Mobile Phone game Spyro the Dragon. View the basic text file here.

UPDATE: Now with hover effects.

Yep. Hope you had a good one.

And look out for a new look to the site in the new year.

A new mobile Spyro game has been released, again made by Kaolink, it features Spyro going around rescuing a few dragon elders from the Shadow Realm.

With only seven levels, it's not a long game, but it at least looks a little bit nicer then Ripto Quest did despite being a side-scroller. Quite why they couldn't think of an original name for the game though...

Welcome to the brand new home for the site, www.darkspyro.net. Finally moved from the free hosts that have been vanishing as soon as we're established on them, but we're going to be staying at this .net location for quite a while now.

Since we went offline on the 28th of last month, I've finally managed to complete my Season of Flame guide along with a map showing the locations of the chests and keys as well as all of the eight items to flame/freeze/electricute in each level. I've also gone over a few of the older guides and spruced 'em up a little, there's not much new in them, but still. The Character Guide additions were put on hold just before the site went offline, but I'm going to start doing that again from Wednesday onwards. Oh, and a new small website has been setup to host all of my guides, see that at darkFAQs.

Some Spyro reviews are in, and it's not looking too good for Shadow Legacy if you're to believe them. IGN give it a 4/10, Eurogamer also gave it the same, Nintendo Power have apparently given it a 6.5/10 and Planet Gamecube gave it a 5.5/10. Check out some user reviews at GameFAQs and GameSpot as well to see their views.

Looks like the site may be on the move again, our hosts are taking their server offline due to a rise in prices from their providers. They do say they are looking for a new server but I've no idea how long that will take, though I'll probably start looking for a new host after a week. In the meantime whilst this site is down, the darkspyro.tk extension will be pointing back to a geocities page where I'll post any updates to the situation. Seeya.

Sometime... smilie

Five months on and I've finally finished off putting the Spyro the Dragon set of characters (88 in total), you can now find every single dragon in the Character Guide. Just another ten games to go... Oh, and I've added a thing on the right of the main page for some reason. Seemed like a good idea at the time.

In other news, the official website has been updated to promote Shadow Legacy, it doesn't really have anything new that we didn't already know, but there's a nicer link to the newest of the videos there.

VUGames have recently added a trailer to their Shadow Legacy section which shows the game's fighting, both with the small creatures in the game and the larger one that has appeared in several screenshots. It also shows the touch-screen features of the game with attacks being made after drawing a certain shape. Thanks to Captain Spyro for finding this one.

IGN has it as well as a short preview. They also have some screens that you may have missed if you didn't read the comments for the previous news post. Cheers Mozepy and Neal.

Fifteen new screens have appeared on the VUGames website here. What's more it seems that the game will feature a new enemy, an evil wizard. And it's been rated E, which suggests that the game is now finished. Still no more news on a release date though, but the 18th of October still looks possible.

Scratch that, there's sixteen new screens. You'll find the extra one here it is 'there' but isn't on the screenshots rosta.

And some general bug fixes around the place, hopefully all images should now work that didn't before (Fusion title screens for example) and a slight behind the scenes change to the comments system to prevent some problems to do with urls.
