With 36 breathtaking levels split over 6 worlds in the game, 12 eggs to collect, 15,000 gems to collect and 80 dragons to save, Spyro’s journey to defeat Gnasty Gnorc is a challenge, but defeat is not far behind, as you can beat Gnasty Gnorc after you complete the levels, Gnorc Cove & Gnorc Nexus. As soon as you defeat Gnasty Gnorc, you will be able to progress on to the final level of the game, Gnasty’s Loot, which can be opened if you have all 12 of the dragon eggs, 13,000 gems and also if you have saved all 80 of the dragons from the Dragon Kingdom.
Spyro the Dragon was a blockbuster hit when the game was announced, and would go on to have commercial success globally, with two more games following soon after the first.
But back to the subject of Spyro the Dragon, the game’s visual concept brings about vibrant landscapes, with some old-school music to accommodate what the game’s concept is really about.
When I first played the game properly, I actually spent the whole of the day upstairs in my bedroom playing Spyro the Dragon, and I was so determined and dedicated to completing the game that I was able to finish the game some time after 12:00 AM or 1:00 AM in the morning, and completing the game fully for the first time was actually a few years ago.
I won’t deny it, but ever since I completed the game fully first time, I have been able to complete the game a lot quicker than I usually do, and just recently, I was able to complete the game a lot faster than before, but it just proves that if Spyro the Dragon can prove to be a smash hit game, then you know that you’ll love playing Spyro the Dragon, including the second and third games from the Spyro the Dragon series.
Did you know? Stewart Copeland from the band, The Police, composed the music for all three of the Spyro the Dragon PS1 Classic series. Did you also know that Carlos Alazraqui was the first man to do the voiceover of Spyro in the first Spyro the Dragon? Neither did I until a few weeks ago.
Overall, I absolutely love Spyro the Dragon, because it is not just an iconic classic of its own, but because it’s a game that you can play any time and never get bored. Plus, because it is a classic game, you know that with Spyro the Dragon, you’re getting the real deal. You can never go wrong with Spyro the Dragon.
