Crash Bandicoot is receiving a fourth major entry, and Spyro fans are clamoring for a game like Spyro’s.
Activision and Toys For Bob surprised fans of the Spyro the Dragon franchise by announcing that the first three games in the series would be remastered in 2018. Iconic titles have been given a new lease of life and look beautiful on the newest generation of consoles. A trilogy of remastered PS1 games, Spyro Reignited Trilogy follows in the footsteps of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.
There was a lot of interest in both games, thus Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was developed. A new Crash game is expected to be released in the near future because Crash 4 was created and produced by the same developers as Reignited Trilogy. Fans may be tempted to play games that are similar to Spyro while they wait for the game’s release.
10 Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
For many years, Spyro and Crash have been inseparable. With Crash 4, Spyro appears as an inflatable ring and a balloon float from the PlayStation 1 games, to the most recent Crash 4.
Like Spyro, the N. Sane Trilogy incorporates both platforming and collectathon elements. Platforming is the primary focus of the levels, although there are numerous boxes to crush in search of a clear gem, as well as colorful gems scattered throughout.
Since its release, Yooka-Laylee has been met with a cool welcome from critics and fans alike. It wasn’t a bad game, but it didn’t live up to the enormous expectations that had been placed on it. As of now, Yooka-Laylee is still one of the best collectathons published in recent years, despite this setback
Pagies, Ghost Quills, and Ghost Writers can be found throughout each level. Although the game has since received a sequel, this one features a much different play style. Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair was well-received when it was released, resembling Donkey Kong Country and Rayman Origins.
8 Sly Cooper And The Thievius Raccoonus
Platforming and stealth are two of gaming’s most diametrically opposed genres, yet Sly Cooper blends them together seamlessly. Despite this disparity, the game is a joy to experience. Sly, who may be beaten with a single strike, makes this series anything but a walk in the park.
Players don’t have to worry about slipping past guards because there are concealed clue bottles to gather in each level. Even while all of the Sly Cooper games are worth playing, the first one is unquestionably the finest of them all.
7 Ratchet And Clank: Going Commando
All of the Ratchet and Clank games are well worth playing, much like the Sly Cooper games. Original Spyro trilogy makers Insomniac Games, who are best known now for their work on current Spider-Man games, are behind the new series.
It’s impossible to compare Ratchet and Clank’s gunplay to that of Spyro, but the game’s platforming parts and collectathon gameplay share some parallels. Each level has a slew of bolts that can be collected and exchanged for new weapons.
6 SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated
At the beginning of 2020, SpongeBob’s 6th generation cult classic was remastered. SpongeBob, Patrick, and Sandy are all playable characters in the video game. Goo Lagoon, Rock Bottom, and Jellyfish fields are only some of the show’s most famous locations where the levels are set. For its fantastic monster fights and open levels, Battle for Bikini Bottom is a favorite of gamers.
5 Ty The Tasmanian Tiger
Ty Spyro and Crash Bandicoot-style levels abound in Tasmanian Tiger. There are three portals in each of the game’s zones, which lead to the game’s levels. Thunder Eggs are collected at each stage. Completing objectives, liberating Bilbies, beating the time attack mode, or simply looking for them in the level can get you some of these Easter eggs. Before moving on to the next area, players must first defeat one of the game’s bosses by collecting all 17 of the stars.
4 Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear To The Rescue
Open levels in Toy Story 2 are on par with those in the original Spyro trilogy, which stretched the PS1’s capabilities to their absolute extent. The concept of each level was brilliant, with everyday home objects necessitating extremely accurate platforming.
Each of the game’s ten levels has a certain number of Pizza Planet tokens that must be obtained. In most cases, these tokens are obtained by beating mini-bosses, completing riddles, or winning races. In addition, the game has five different boss battles. It’s nice to have so many different types of bosses to fight in the movie tie-in.
GoldenEye isn’t the only thing that makes Rare famous in the FPS world. Banjo-Kazooie on the Nintendo 64 was also a major factor in the growth of collectathon games. There are nine worlds in Banjo-Kazooie, and each one is a treasure trove. Musical Notes, Feathers, Honeycombs, and Jiggies are among the items in this collection. Complete portal-like puzzles that open doors to new realms are accomplished by Jiggies. The levels in World of Warcraft are still among the most ingenious in gaming.
2 Jak And Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
The Precursor Legacy, like many of the games on this list, is both a great homage to Spyro the Dragon and a brilliant game in its own right. Objectives must be completed in each stage same as Spyro’s. Precursor orbs, a type of collectible, can be found all over the place. Spyro’s gems look a lot like these orbs. Jak 2 and Jak 3 are both excellent, but the original game is the best fit because it focuses on platforming rather than action..
1 Super Mario Odyssey
This list might have included any of Mario’s 3D games. It’s also worth playing Super Mario 64, Sunshine, and Galaxy. The sheer amount of moons to be collected in Odyssey puts it at the top of the list.
A staggering 880 moons may be found in this game, which is similar to the previous games’ stars. For the first time ever, this is not only Mario’s biggest adventure yet but also one of the most jam-packed collection events ever. Odyssey’s platforming is also among the greatest in the industry.
