Red gems heal you.

Green gems allow you to use your elemental attacks.

Purple gems fill your fury bar.

Blue gems help you upgrade your elemental attacks.


Throwing enemies up into the air results in a juggling game which requires you to swipe the screen with your stylus in the same direction as an arrow indicates. Get it correct three times and the enemy dies and you gain some blue gems.

Most enemies will respawn a few times before vanishing for good.


The light puzzles from A New Beginning return. Unfortunately they do so without any new puzzles, they're all just exact copies of the old puzzles. Align the coloured lights with the corresponding coloured light receptors to complete.

To activate a puzzle stand next to it and tap it with the stylus.


The furies in this version of the game require you to fill a small purple bar by collecting purple gems. You then activate it by tapping a purple circle that appears on the bottom right of the lower screen and play a memory game. You need to watch as the game shows you a sequence of coloured circles and to repeat it by tapping the circle in the same order. It increases the pattern by one circle up to five and the more you get right the longer the duration of the fury.

Fire Fury doubles your damage for a short time.

Ice Fury regenerates Spyro's health.

Electric Fury causes Spyro to move and attack quicker.

Earth Fury makes Spyro temporarily invulnerable to damage.

Time to begin the walkthrough.

V It's pretty good, but a bit different than the console. Some scenes. and the order you get the elements in is re-sequenced.
