Box Art

Developer  Insomniac Games  Publisher   Sony Computer Entertainment  Platform   Sony Playstation, Playstation Network
This was the second Spyro game, and developer Insomniac decided to make small design changes in terms of graphics and story without compromising the flawless gameplay. The game keeps the idea of central hubs leading off to the levels through portals and progression through the accumulation of collectibles.The real change in this game is a fresh story which has a larger point in driving the story than the first. Spyro is brought into the world of Avalar as opposed to the dragon kingdom from the original game. Where Ripto, a dinosaur riding sorcerer is terrorizing the land and its citizens and its Spyro’s job to stop his reign of terror.
