This is an intersting but not very nice glitch. Don't worry, it's not too bad, all you'll need to do to undo it is to reload your file. As the name suggests, this glitch means you'll be stuck in water. But read on and find out more...
Games this glitch can be done in Edit
This is a glitch can be done in these Spyro games:
- Spyro: Gateway to Glimmer ( Spyro: Ripto's Rage is the NTSC version )
- Spyro: Year of the Dragon
You can't do this in the original first game because there is no way to get in any form of water ( because it's all poisonous and will hurt you ).
How to do this glitch Edit
To do this glitch, enter any level that has a hazardous floor ( like lava ). Go over to the harmful floor and begin jumping on it. On the fourth hit, right before you die and it appears that your tail is touching the lava, pause. This requires practice and lots of lives. When done correctly, your controller should rumble slightly. Now choose exit level. You may kill the fodder, but none will give you Sparx. Jump into the water. You will not be swimming, and you can charge, jump, glide, and even flame. You are free to move around your new tiny prison.
