Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage

Spyro 2 is the sequel to best selling Spyro the Dragon and is also a 3D platformer. In this game Spyro is tasked with accumulating talismans and orbs so that he has enough magic to defeat Ripto, who is destroying the world of Avalar.


Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage! is the sequel to the 1998 PlayStation hit Spyro the Dragon. Ripto's Rage was developed by Insomniac Games, as was its predecessor. It is known as Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer in Europe and Australia, and Spyro x Sparx: Tondemo Tours in Japan.

The series protagonist, Spyro the Dragon, decides that he wants a take a vacation to Dragon Shores with dragonfly friend Sparx a few years after defeating Gnasty Gnorc. Instead the portal that he enters leads into Avalar. This is because the Professor, Elora and Hunter were trying to bring a dragon to Avalar. A sorcerer known by Ripto has invaded the world of Avalar and is wreaking havoc all over Avalar. Spyro must travel throughout Avalar, undoing the damage which has been caused by Ripto and ultimately defeating him.

The game was made available on Playstation Network on July 27, 2007, though it was removed a week later due to emulation problems.

Spyro 2 is a platform game, and most gameplay elements from the original were carried over to the sequel. Spyro has two main attacks, the traditional dragon power of fire breath, and a charging attack. Players must creatively utilize Spyro's abilities to take down the enemies throughout the game. Using his wings, Spyro can glide across each level, depending on how high Spyro is when he begins his glide. Spyro uses his gliding abilities to get past many obstacles, and use updrafts to travel further.

The main point of the game is to get through each level and earn that level's talisman, collecting gems along the way. There are also "sidequests" that can be completed for orbs, which are necessary to unlock certain levels.

Spyro also gains new abilites in this sequel. A character named Moneybags is introduced, and Spyro can purchase new moves from him. Over the course of the game, you can eventually buy swimming, ladder climbing, and headbash skills. Spyro can also power up using special gates that are activated once a certain number of enemies are defeated.

Spyro also features some events which alternate how the game is played, such as roller coaster sections.


The game is divided into three worlds, each with their own unique levels. There is also a bonus world, Dragon Shores.
