TipsBack to top
Doing this trick, the game will award you with 2550points (50 for the first backflip and 2500 for the GNASTY GNORK)!!!
when your versing the sorceress, get onto one of the spaceships. Get down low on the ground (not touching it)and then just fly up. start shooting all over the place while going up, and you will end up popping more ballons.
if anyone can tell me how to beat the yetis at the snowbourding race in the bonus world, plese tell me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
heads up........... youll end up gettin to da end.
They had it coming.
Those Sasquatch six are a bunch of idiots on snow disks.They may not have half a brain cell to rub together but they are hard to beat first time.When you win you will have 18500 treasure.Go to round 3 and walk through the power up. Shoot down all all of those pesky little blighters and collect any remaining treasure to go into round four. The sorceress in waiting on a U.F.O in here so shoot here down to get the egg! Yippee ! 117%
Country Speedway: Look inside the house.
Honey Speedway: Hiding around a huge rock.
Harbor Speedway: Inside the lighthouse.
First you must beat cheetah in a one on one this is easy as he never gets 4,000 points plus so to beat him you can you the stunts below or use your own.
The big stunts 1,000 points at a time!
One good stunt is the crush or the gulp if you haven't devalued the single, double or triple roles then when you make the fourth role you will score 1,100 in addition a fifth role will get a big gulp or an orange crush worth 2,000 on its own!
The triple towers and half pipe leap score 1,000 each and if you do the triple towers and jump at the end you can curve right and land on the end of the half pipe leap and it will count as a proper half pipe leap if you do this twice you will score 3,000.
The nastly gnork (I can't spell it properly) is worth 2,500 on its own. To pull this of you must go to the big ramp (you can do it else where but on the big ramp is easiest) at the bottom of it don't press X unless you are pulling a gulp or a crush. At the bottom hold triangle and do a single back flip and then role left once you must be diagonal or the role left might not register properly.
The best is yet to come if you have enough time after the nastly gnork role right twice more and get 3,000 for a raging ripto on its own!!! How ever it is solid to do and requires lots of tries.
First once you beat cheetah you must get on a board the press start and give up now you are standing where you need to be. Remember you must not wipe out if you do give up and try again but if you have high points when you fall say 7,000 you can just top it of with your own skill you don't need to restart.
First do the t towers and half pipe leap trick when you land turn so that you go into the blue crater then go out pulling a double back flip and go up the orange ramp press X at the ramps end and do a 2X forward flip. Land and skate to the top and head down the big ramp press X at the bottom and pull X5 flip right land and go to the top of the ramp again you should have 5,450 points. Then turn around jump as necessary to go to the bottom and press X to flip right X4. Go to the top again go down again and flip left X5 up and down again to flip left X4 up and down again now pull the g gnork + r ripto trick. Land and do the t towers half pipe leap trick again now it, doesn't matter now if you fall of the board, and pull roles and flips in the blue crater till you time up.
Pulled right you should have 17,000 at least I got 19,133 doing this!!!
#2. Sunny Villa: Beat skateboard course record I-Still easy. After you complete both of the lizard challenges, get over 3,200 points in less than 3 minutes. I pulled a Gnasty Gnorc off the monster ramp. Then I did other good tricks and got this.
#3. Molten Crater: Assemble tiki heads-In the Sgt. Byrd area, instead of putting the heads on their bodies, put them in this form on the platform you begin on:
#4. Molten Crater: Supercharge the wall-The easiest point in the game. In the area where you pay Moneybags to open, there is a red wall. Charge it, or even flame it to get it.
#5. Seashell Shore: Catch the funky chicken-Near the end of the level, there is a chicken that runs around the entire room. Kill it.
#6. Icy Peak: Glide to pedestal-Simply land on the pedestal where the red thief stood. To do this, use the whirlwind to get on a platform. You can glide to the pedestal with ease from here.
#7. Enchanted Towers: Skateboard course record II-Follow #2. This time get 10,000 points. Try to pull off Raging Riptos, Big Gulps, Orange Crushes, Gnarly Gnorcs, Twisted Limes, Twisted Lemons, ect. and you'll get this easily.
#8. Spooky Swamp: All pirahna signs-Destroy all the signs warning you of the dangers of the water.
#9. Sgt. Byrd's Base: Bomb the gophers-Kill all of the gophers around the level. Pretty tough.
#10. Frozen Altars: Beat yeti in 2 rounds-After you get the first egg in boxing, instead of going through all 3 rounds, defeat him in 2. (also, check out your new Epilouge now that you have 10 skill points)
#11. Lost Fleet: Skateboard record time-After completing both of the racing challenges, do 3 laps in less than 1:45:00.
#12. Fireworks Factory: Find Agent 9's powerup-After getting the "You're Doomed!" egg, on the celing of 1 of the rooms is a red box. Shoot it.
#13. Charmed Ridge: The impossible tower-From a high point, glide to a tower in the distance.
#14. Charmed Ridge: Shoot temple windows-In the Sgt. Byrd area, shoot all 4 stained glass windows.
#15. Bentley's Outpost: Push box off cliff-Push the box that you move out of Barthelomew's way off of the cliff.
#16. Desert Ruins: Destroy all seaweed-When using Hunter's Manta Ray, simply do as the title says.
#17. Haunted Tomb: Swim into dark hole-Near the beginning of the level is some water. In the water is a hole. You know what to do...
#18. Dino Mines: Hit all seahorses-The toughest one in the game. In the place where you get the "Shafted!" egg, charge all of the seahorses.
#19. Dino Mines: Hit the secret dino-In the Agent 9 part, where there are 3 green dinos, there is one that walks behind them. The easiest way to kill it is to kill the dino on the left and then kill the secret one.
#20. Agent 9's Lab: Blow up all palm trees-Use the bombs and throw them at the trees.(now, look at your Epilouge. It should be longer since you have all 20 skill points!)
GlitchesBack to top
If you uber far in the game (aka the very last home land), you know about the Crystal World. Go to that place. Then go to the area where theres the water stuff and in the middle of it all theres that building thing with the swirl that can make you fly. Swim to where the ledge area is thinner and facing the edge of the world. Get REALLY close to that edge. Then dive. It takes a few tries for it to work, but after a while it will work.
BUT! Do not, i repeat...DO NOT while you are swimming in air, under ANY circumstances swim near water or those swirly things. And do NOT overr use the glitch. If you get near any water or swirly things Spyro will stop swimming. And if you ove use the glitch it gets harder to make it work (or atleast it does for me). Oh! And you cant fly to close to the bottom of the world because Spyro will die.
Yes there are a few draw backs BUT you can swim anywhere in that world! <img src="http://i.neoseeker.com/d/icons/bigsmile.gif" border=0 vspace=2 alt="" />
