Spyro: Shadow Legacy


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.

Spyro: Shadow Legacy

Squeeballs Party


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
