Professor creates a peephole to trap Ripto in another dimension. Robot butler destroys it. Professor sends Spyro off to locate some magical artifacts known as "Hearts" to send Ripto back. Spyro has to complete loads of quests to get them. Since a bunch of toddler dragons without their toy are more scary than the end of the world as they know it, for example.

Unused Sprites

Ripto has several sprites that go unused.

Ripto attacking from five different angles, seemingly from a much earlier version of the game. The retail release has a different cape colour, whereas this one matches his cape from the other games.

A comparison of this Ripto versus the one in the final:

Last but not least, these probably early sprites labelled DON'T USE.

Regional Differences

Not only does the European game load the credits faster (despite adding more text on for the localization team), the text has been moved left to match the rest of the sequence.
