If you want to go straight to the gameplay - go to "3:30". For the best experience, see the video in high resolution.

In addition, I created snapshots based on the footage it was shown, and added descriptions.

NOTE: All the gameplay footage/screenshots comes from the Wii version of the game. The footage/screenshots shown to you may not be the final product. The HUD is not shown.

  • 0 - Spyro the Dragon, with the star symbols around him representing the element of Magic.
  • 1 - Headbashing through containers to collect coins! Takes place at the top of the castle or something.
  • 2 - Spyro deactivates the electricity that powers the tornado - resulting in all the pieces of the castle building coming back together. Wow, those guys did a good creating that experience for the Wii!
  • 3 - Using jump pads (blue circles) and confronting those large golden blades!
  • 4 - ...Darkness... Spyro has to use his flame breath to guide himself around the corridors.
  • 5 - Getting into new areas...like at the top of a ship.
  • 6 - Trigger Happy, holding dual golden guns.
  • 7 - Hey, is that a silver gear collectible at the left?
  • 8 - Combat in progress!
  • 9 - More combat in progress. Hey, is that a portal? (The purple thing)
  • 10 - Encountering rolling barrels along the way.
  • 11 - Wooden steps being raised.
  • 12 - Ignitor, holding his flaming sword.
  • 13 - Poor huge turtle, he's being knocked off from the ledge.
  • 14 - Ahhh! There's an eye on the floor, on the door glowing red, at the top-left corner, and another one next to the door!
  • 15 - Goblins throwing barrels, yet the knight has no problem and swish! Barrels destroyed.
  • 16 - A plant enemy...coughing out a blue creature?
  • 17 - WHAM! The enemy receives a critical strike from it's might sword!
  • 18 - Gill Grunt, holding it's weapon.
  • 19 - Wrapped boulder rolling down! Rolling down! Rolling down...!
  • 20 - More knocking turtles, hmm - a puzzle!
  • 21 - Weapon showing for the Gill Grunt, shooting out water!
  • 22 - Alternative attack - shooting deadly harpoons!
  • 23 - Wait, isn't that the same place as picture #9? Near duplicate...!
  • 24 - The water is also used as a way of hovering like a jetpack, to go to one place or another more faster.
  • 25 - ...and also jumping over barrels.
  • 26 - Mmm! Food! Recovers your health.
  • 27 - Eruptor.
  • 28 - Avoid the incoming lava balls!
  • 29 - Arrow blocks, yet another section that involves solving puzzles.
  • 30 - Wham! Skeleton shattered into pieces!
  • 31 - ...Battling against Spyro? (Check the footage if you want to speculate!)
  • 32 - Destroying explosive barrels with huge chunks of rocky fireballs! Watch out for HUD targets on the floor!

@GamingMaster_76: As in YouTube? The upper link needs to use flash, the bottom link doesn't. You can download the high-resolution version and play it in your computer...unless you're not on the computer per say.

I'd download the video, but I can't from an iPad. And I don't have anything to download it to.

No, the last time I looked at it was this morning and thy were open then, but you should still definitely block them for any new SSA videos.

Thanks, BTW. :3

Aww! Trigger Happy has such a cute voice!

What's with those coloured orb-like objects? Collectables? Currency? Gem replacement?

And the gems in the shots of Ignitor- new gem clusters if those orbs aren't, or just scenery?

@Razz: x3

@GamingMaster_76: I think the orbs come from enemies when they are defeated, treasures (composed of gems and coins) can be found from containers.

Man...I did this work all night that I have to hold off from working on collaborating all the info in one place. Maybe tomorrow or Sunday at best.

@Aura, pretty much everything concerning this game is fueled by rage and hatred, and I don't know why. Does a simple design really peak people off so much?

PS: remind to not go into game designing and programming.
Razz Platinum Sparx Gems: 5826
#16 Posted: 09:59:08 12/02/2011
Fortunately, I think the designers and such are smart enough to stay off forums. I know the few pros I've talked to are often surprised that people even know of their work outside of their office.

I don't really get the fan rage, either. Some are just riled up because they're too invested in a fictional character. Some are just parroting what that first group said without doing any research. Luckily for Activision, none of these people are who they're targeting for this game.

Despite having mixed feelings about the game I still think it looks really fun judging from the trailers and wow Spyro sounds a little wild!
I want to play it and give it a chance.
So far I'm liking the simplistic designs.

That's not even it.

The gameplay just doesn't look like anything amazing. Fun, yes, but addictive?....Not by the looks of it....

The first LBP was a similar affair actually....while it had some uniqueness, the story mode was a pretty standard platformer, and wasn't very addicting. But the game was still amazing because of it's level creation feature, and the online play helped a lot too.

If there was a level maker in SSA, then we wouldn't have to worry about the game being too easy or hard....we would have full control over it!smilie

Yes but I'm here in NY and I can't even make it because I don't know where exactly it is.

It's worse to know that you could actually be there but you don't know when and where it is.

I think Spyro get a Voice smilie.
Read the IGN preview the game has a lot of talented voice actor.
They do not yet reveal who
The growl has not mean anything. May simply be a sound.

What has me really unimpressed about this game is the:

Portal system/innovation/gimmick whatever you want to call it smilie .

This (for now) is the only thing that I'm really, really wary about smilie . If the portal system was better designed then I would still be unimpressed just do to the lack of Gameplay video's out there. The figurine however, simply stands on the portal. . . its not fasten, snapped, or locked into it .

That is what gets me the most. If the figurine was fasten, snapped, or locked into the portal then I would feel a little better about it. But right now, its a design flaw in my eyes. How? If something knocks that figurine over while you are in the midst of playing the game, then the game will "freeze" awaiting for you to place another figurine on the portal to continue playing. What if your battling against another player and Player 2 "cheats" and knocks your figurine off the portal causing a dropped match or instant lose (just as an example)?

Going on with my theorized dread about this portal system is the figurines themselves. If they get lost, stolen, eaten, destroyed then you have to buy a new one, and start over from scratch with that character. Another problem is the popularity with one character against another. If people float to this one character and not the other then it can be such a hassle just to experience what that character plays like just because someone else beat you to the punch. Also to note, one can't "fully experience the game until they have all the characters". . . yeah, more money down the drain. The economy is bad enough as is thank you smilie .

I can go on and on about this. . . but who knows it might just make the worlds next big boom. . . maybe, maybe not.

All in all: All that glitters isn't gold. I really need to play the game to see if this is Spyro's revival, or final nail in the coffin smilie . And yes, I'm fully aware that this game is 7 months away and changes can be made, I just hope they do make some changes so it seems a little more appealing (adding Sparx into the mix would also be great).

Adding in Sparx would be a huge plot hole though, they're supposed to be characters that were taken from their worlds. Sparx has no reason to be there.

Also, from what I see the characters shouldn't take more then a few hours to "level up." I can see the portal being an issue, but if someone is enough of a snot to knock it off that's their problem. If they snapped in and someone tried that it'd be more of an issue since the part that snaps in could break and you'd need a new portal. I like the "gimmick," it seems really inventive to me.

Not necessarily smilie . Not only are the characters trying to get back to their world, but their also trying to reclaim it. So seeing Sparx may not be a plot hole at all *shrug* smilie.

It's not just the leveling up that gets me, it's also buying a new figurine that gets me. Whether or not they do what I think about the portal snapping locking figurines or not, its still something that one has to think about when buying this game. Whether the portal or the figurine breaks, one has to spend money to fix it or buy a new one. By the way it looks both parts are needed in order to play which makes them more on the lines of a liability then an asset.

If these figurines are supposed to stand up to a toy then they should endured a lot of punishment. If they can, then I see no ordinary wear and tear problem from it buy using the Lock, snap fasten idea. If they don't then no matter if they do that fasten, snap lock idea of mine or not the figurine is easily acceptable to breaking, which means buying a new figurine, if the stores have them smilie.

Yes, this is very innovative, but everything new has its problems as well smilie.
