Spyro: Shadow Legacy (DS)

 

Spyro, the little purple dragon originally created by Insomniac Games, has appeared in more than a dozen different games since his debut in 1998. His games span just about every modern platform, but the little guy hasn't aged well at all. It's without...

Spyro the Dragon. That crazy purple dragon is back in action. You probably remember having some fun with him on the Playstation? Yeah collecting jewels and whatnot, starting stuff on fire... Good times.

Smash, squish, slam, shock, and scrunch ball-shaped creatures across more than 150 motion-controlled mini-games in Squeeballs. The animated stars will giggle, scream, cackle, and howl as you use them to cook, paint, bowl, shoot, and engage in other forms
