***************************************************************************************

+THIS IS A SPOILER. DO NOT READ THIS UNLESS YOU MEAN TO GET PAST A PART YOU CAN'T!!!!
 
+When I say Up, down, left, or right, I mean the go right in the game, not the control 
 pad right. If I say north, south, etc., I mean up on the control pad.

+I include the quotes so you can check if you are in a right place. If this faq gets
 to large, I will remove the quotes that are irrevelant to the subject.
 
+The statistics at the beginning of each Lvl faq is to show how many gems and 
 fireflies there are in each level. You probably want to catch and collect as many
 as you can until you get bored and enter the next level.

+The Firefly locations section reveals the location of fireflies. If you can't find 
 it, email me. BUT ONLY IF YOU REALLY CAN'T FIND IT. I will try my very best to 
 make everything as clear as possible.

+Here is how the sections are split in this walkthrough. The asteriks(*****) are
 the section dividers. They are the major sections. The plus' (++++) are the semi
 section dividers, the sections in the sections. Such as the walkthrough. The lines
 (------) are just to split some paragraphs/quotes/lvl sections to make things 
 easier to read.

+REALLY actually read the faq before you email me with questions. I WILL NOT ANSWER
 QUESTIONS THAT ARE ANSWERED ON THE FAQ. I'll just tell you to search. To search 
 around, you can use the find button on most internet applications (usually CTRL F)

+Don't complain, whine, or criticize(in a demoralizing way) me. This faq is intended
 for your enjoyment, and I don't have the obligation make everyone happy. I will do my
 best to make sure the faq is unambigous (clear), coherent (understandable), and fun
 to read.

+Have fun. Ciao! :)

1.) You need to collect as many as gems and fireflies as possible
2.) To get a firefly, freeze it with ice breath. It'll say "You have caught <name>"
3.) Fodder (sheep, frogs, etc.) increase your health. If you get enough, you will
    obtain another life.
4.) To bring up the map, press L and Select at the same time.
5.) To go through a portal, you need the amount of gems/fireflies it requires

6.) Here are the values of gems:
    Red Gem..............1 gem
    Green Gem............2 gems
    Purple Gem...........5 gems
    Yellow Gem...........10 gems
    Blue Gem.............25 gems

7.) Here are the health stats. They're shown when Sparx's head shows up at the bottom
    Each time you're hit, you go down a stat. The color of his head is your health:
    Yellow head...........0 hits
    Blue head.............1 hit
    Green head............2 hits
    None..................3 hits
    Dead..................4 hits

8.) You have many abilities. You only start with the ice breath. You obtain more

9.) You kill enemies by freezing, burning, etc. them. Some can't be killed by certain
    abilites (more on this in the Friends, foes, and bosses section).
10.) On most levels, there are small tasks that you can do to get fireflies. IE, on
     Sunny Plains, you burn all the sundials. On Shamrock Isle, you freeze all the
     fountains.

Sparx: It's about time we finally got some vacation time, isn't it? Getting rid
       of all those Rhynocs was a real pain in the...
Spyro: Hey! Where is everyone? I thought we'd get a welcome home party for sure.
Hunter: Brrr! It's pretty cold here, too! What's going on?
Bianca: Isn't that a dragon elder? Let's go ask him.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Elder: Spyro! You're back! Something has gone horribly wrong! While you were away,
       an army of Rhynocs slipped into the Dragon Realms and stole all the fireflies!
       Without firefly magic, we are unable to breath fire. To make matters worse...
Hunter: Hey! Spyro can still breath fire! Can't you, Spyro? 
Spyro: Sure! Oops.
Elder: (ahem) As I was saying, our flame has been turned to ice. The Dragon Realms
       have been getting colder and colder. Soon, we'll be forced to move.
Spyro: No way! We've got to figure out what's gone wrong!
Bianca: Um, I'd better tag along. You might need some magical help along the way.
Hunter: D-d-don't f-f-forget ab-b-bout m-m-me, Sp-sp-spyro...
Spyro: Right! Let's go!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In Season of flame, there are three plains. Sunny plains, Celestial Plains, and 
Starry Plains. In each plain, there are a number of portals, which are doorways into 
other places. The portals lead you to different levels, such as Country farm, 
Shamrock Isle, etc. To enter through a portal, you need to have an amount of the item 
it requires(gems, fireflies).
The portals are:

Country Farms................Nothing needed
Sharmrock Isle:..............3 fireflies
Temple of Dune:..............10 fireflies
Minty Mines..................12 fireflies
Tiki Tropics.................14 fireflies
Alpine Adove.................18 fireflies
Canyon Hop...................500 gems
Celestial Plains.............22 fireflies

I will be going over Sunny plains in this order in the walkthrough.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Basically, Level 1 is a tutorial. It'll be a breeze if you already know 
how to play. First, you will see some things shaped like brown vases(baskets). 
Vases sometimes have items in them, like gems.

Spark: Hey, Spyro! Those baskets could have hidden treasure inside. Try using your
       breath ability to open them up. Press the B Button to use your breath 
       ability.

Then head left and then up where you will see Bianca.

Bianca: Spyro, look at this! I found a firefly! I thought fireflies only lived
        in the Dragon World. How did it get here? Oh, it's hot!
Sparx: Hey, Spyro, you should try using your icy breath to catch that firefly
       for the elders!
Spyro: Good idea, Sparx! It looks like this ice breath might come in handy after
       all.

Go near the pink flying thingy(firefly), and press B (your weapon) to freeze the 
firefly. After you freeze it, head up to Hunter, where he will teach you about Fodder.

Hunter: Fodder can help you get your health back, Spyro. Charge or use your
        breath ability on them to get butterflies that will improve your health
        or even earn you extra lives! Oh! Look at this pretty glowing rock I
        found. Hey! it flew away!

Here's another firefly. Catch it; they are important. After that, ram the sheep 
like animals(fodder) to get health. Head up until you see another firefly, catch
it. Then, head up more till you get to some platform like stairs. Jump up them to
the top. You will see Hunter yet again...

Hunter: You look a little rusty since your vacation, Spyro. Let's practice jumping.
        Folow me!
Sparx: Press the A Button to jump, Spyro. Don't worry about falling off the edge
       in the plains areas. Fairy magic will protect you.

Jump to the ledge that Hunter jumped to. He will talk to you YET again.

Hunter: Not bad! Now, let's see if you can make a long one!
Sparx: Spyro, press the A Button once to jump. Press it again in midair to glide.

Do the same thing hunter did, just jump and glide. After you finish, 
talk to him ...again...

Hunter: Whoa, you've still got it! OK, let's try a really hard one!
Sparx: Press the A Button near the end of your glide to hover. Hovering can
       give you a bit of extra distance when you need it.

Do the same again. Now, you talk to him the last time! 

Hunter: That was awesome! You're more than ready to take on some Rhynocs now!
        Oh, hey, I found this little bug dude a while ago. You can have it if
        you want. It's just burning a hole in my pocket. Ow! I wasn't kidding!

Catch another firefly; you should have at five now. If you don't have 5, take a gander 
at the Firefly locations below. After you have 5, move left until you see a portal. 
It's called Country Farms, and this will be your first REAL level. 
Enter through it to leave a country of safety into a world of adventure....
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Firefly locations:
1.) First time meeting Bianca when you play
2.) Hunter will give you one when you see him about the fodder
3.) Go near the platforms where hunter will teach you to jump
4.) Talk to Bianca again. She's to the far right next to a huge sundial
5.) After jumping with hunter, he will hand you a firefly

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Statistics:
GEMS: 300
FIREFLIES: 7 (1 located if you beat Challenge Portal)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Country Farm, you are not protected by fairy magic. If you fall into the water, you
will lose a life. After you step into the portal to Country Farm, head down until you 
see a girl that is a cow.

Henrietta: Oh! What a cute little dragon! I wish my poor sister, Daisy, were here to
           see this. Those terrible Rhynocs ran off with her in the middle of the night
           and now I fear that I'll never see her again. Would you be willing help me
           find her?

Head up, where you will see your first Rhynoc! Freeze that baddy, then capture the
firefly you see near it. If you're low on health, get the fodder. Head down to freeze
another two Rhynoc. Go down even more, and you will see a pig Rhynoc; he can cast
spells on you to can freeze you. Kill him. There is another fodder, so if you are low
on health. Head left to another Rhynoc who can cast spells, and then head down to
defeat another two Rhynoc and get another firefly. When you head left, Sparx will 
say something on fairys.

Sparx: TO BE ADDED

Head left and then up again. You'll meet another two Wizard Rhynoc, a couple of fodder,
a firefly, and another regular rhynoc. Head up the hill. You will see Daisy(Henrietta's
sister) being guarded by a wizard Rhynoc.

Daisy: Please help me! That horrible Rhynoc is keeping me here against my will! My
       sister must be worried sick about me by now!

Defeat the wizard rhynoc. Your skill should be getting better by now.

Daisy: Thank you! That rhynoc was the scariest thing I've ever seen! I hope my sister
       Henrietta got away from them. I don't have anything to repay you with, but
       maybe you'd like this sparkly gem I found while I was hiding. Wait! That's no
       gem! It just flew away!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bianca: Hey, Spyro! I finially found a section in my spell book about the fireflies.
        Hold still for a minute... There! You should have your fire breath back. I'll
        just stand back while you give it a try.
Spyro: Hey! Thanks, Bianca! Now all we have to do is go back and cast the same spell
       on all of the elders.
Bianca" Er...I'll need a LOT more fireflies before I can do that. Besides, we've got
        to stop whoever's behind this or they'll just steal them all again.
Spyro: You're right. Wait! How will I capture fireflies without my ice breath?
Bianca: You should still have your ice breath. I don't thing my spell took anything
        away
Sparx: Use SELECT to cycle through your available breath abilities, Spyro.

YOUR FIRST OTHER ABILITY. WHOOHOO!!! To switch, just do what Sparx said, press select.
Catch the firefly that Daisy gave you. You can only catch fireflies with your ice
breath. Head down the little hill to kill a rhynoc and to catch another firefly. Go 
right, and kill another Wizard Rhynoc. Now is great oppurtunity to try out your fire
breath on the Rhynocs. After they are burned/frozen, You will see a portal, but it 
is a little different than the ones in Sunny Plains. 

Sparx: Hey, it's a challenge portal! I'll bet we can find some fireflies in here and
       have some fun, too!

Enter it, and you will see Mabel, another cowish person. Make sure you are switched
to your ice breath ability.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mabel: You! Little dragon! Is there any way you can help me? I've got to keep all this
       cold until my sister Polly comes to take it to market. But it's such a hot day! 
       I don't think it's going to make it... Help Mable?

Six frozen jars of milk will fall down. Here is a small strategy: Freeze the jars in a
round robin fashion. When I make the future strategy section, check it.

++IF YOU WIN:++
Mabel: You did it! Now all the milk will be fresh when it gets to market! Thank you
       so much for your help, little dragon.
Polly: As a token of our appreciation, please take this glowing seed I bought at the
       market. Whoops! That thing's pretty slippery for a seed!

What is it with these people? Can't they tell its a firefly... Anyways, catch the 
firefly. Head back through the portal and through the other portal that Bianca and
Daisy were near.

++IF YOU LOSE:++
Mabel: Oh no! The canister overheated. Now I'll have to get more milk to replace it!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK:

Here are the locations of all the haystacks:
HAYSTACK 1: On the first hill in the beginning next to the first rhynoc met
HAYSTACK 2: On the second hill next to the first
HAYSTACK 3: Another hill to the right of the first wizard rhynoc
HAYSTACK 4: After meeting the fairy, go down a little
HAYSTACK 5: Near the hill leading to Sunny Plains Portal
HAYSTACK 6: At the end of platform on the Sunny Plains Portal
HAYSTACK 7: To the bottom of hill with the Sunny Plains Portal near the Challenge Portal
HAYSTACK 8: Near the challenge portal

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To bad... head back to the portal...If you go back and talk to Henrietta again, she
will thank you but say something about the Rhynocs.

Henrietta: TO BE ADDED

Henrietta is talking about whole world in general, not just Country Farms. Your job
here is finished.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FIREFLY LOCATIONS:
1.) Near Hendrietta
2.) Right before you see the fairy
3.) Right before you climb the hill to meet Daisy
4.) Daisy gives you one after you save hear

With your new breath ability, fire, go around the island to like the sundials. There are
a total of 8 sundials. The sundials are all around the outer edge of Sunny Plain. If you
follow the edges of the island, you will get 5 sundial locations. Look at sundial location
5, 6, 7, 8 to get the others. If you lite up all the dials, you get a firefly. When you 
are lighting them up, You will see Bianca near a huge sundial. Talk to her.

Bianca: TO BE ADDED

Use your temporary ice ability to freeze the shallow water nearby. Cross it, and light
up the sundial there. Do all of this in a quick manner, because you only have 30 
seconds with your powerful ice breath. Lite the sundial, and freeze the water again to
go back. If you run out before you go back, pass the fountains to get the ability
for another 30 seconds.

After you get the firefly, you should have between 11 to 14 fireflies. Head back near
where you talked to the elder dragon in the beginning. Near that area, there should 
be another portal you can enter. The next level, Shamrock Isle, is beyond that portal.

SUNDIAL LOCATIONS:
1.) Near Hunter when he teachers you about fodder (go down a little and then left)
2.) Near the platforms where Hunter teaches u to jump
3.) Near the jump on the 2nd platform
4.) Rightmost corner (check map(select & l))
5.) Head right from Bianca when she gives you the temporary ice breath
6.) Water you freeze to get to the other side (see above)
7.) Head up from Hunter when he teachers you about fodder
8.) Head to the Celestial Plains gate (right from sundial 7) and head up just a tiny
    bit

=======================================================================================

Right when you enter Shamrock, there will be a small leprechaun named Brian; speak with 
him. Just in case if you haven't noticed, you're in a leprechaun world.

Brian: Top o' the mornin' to you, wee dragon, an' welcome to Shamrock Isle, the
       luckiest place in all the world! Well, it used to be the luckiest place until
       the Rhynocs came an' stole our dancing horseshoe. Without it, the springs'll
       dry up and we'll be left in a desert!

Sparx: I see lots of horseshoes around here, Spyro, but none that are dancing. Guess
       we'll have to look around for it.

When you head right and then down, Sparx will comment on your ability to change
objects with your breath abilities. You can freeze water, fountains, etc. Freeze all
fountains to get a firefly. You will encounter another Rhynoc, but he is all green 
and leprechaunyish. On this level, when you freeze people, you have to ram into 
them after you do so, or they will unfreeze. My suggestion is to use firebreath on 
the rhynocs, except 8 ball ones (look on just a bit later). You can freeze them
anytime, whilst with fire, you can only hit 8 balls when they are normal.

Sparx: Remember, Spyro: some things can be changed by using your breath ability on
       them. Try burning or freezing different objects in the world to see what
       happens.

Head down even more to meet another Rhynoc; kill him. Head up to see a black rolling
dude, like a big 8 ball. Burn him with your fire ability when he turns back to normal
for a couple of seconds. You can only kill these rolling rhynocs when they are in
there normal mode. Head left until you have to glide to little pieces of land
to continue. Do so, and you will see another 8 ball rhynoc on the second island. Pass
onto the third island where Sparx mentions something about looking around.

Sparx: If you want to see more of the screen, use your look mode. Just hold down the
       L button and then use the Control Pad to look around.

You will also see a fairy, so you can have a save point if you die by falling or
something like that. The tip Sparx gave you is helpful, becuase if you use L to
look to the left, you will see another island with some gems. Go up more a couple
of times, and you will get to another Challenge portal! Darby, another leprachaun 
mentions a pasture being burned by fireflies (hint).

Darby: TO BE ADDED

Boy, is this a challenge! When playing, just think of it as a freeze tag game. Check
challenge portal strategy section to see how to beat it.

IF YOU WIN:
Sparx: You got all of them! Go tell Darby.

You don't really lose on this. You just give up. You can always do it again if you
want to. If you beat it the first time, you can go in another time with more pixies.
Head back by gliding through all the islands again. When you are back at the fairy, 
head up and glide to the next island. Kill the rhynocs, and then go up once more to
meet another firefly. When you go near the edge up ahead, Sparx will comment on
jumping and remembering to use your glide button, but I'm sure you already know that,
right? Right? k... Head up, where you will all of a sudden see two 8 balls accompanied
by a rhynoc. Keep going up: you will meet a firefly, like a million more 8 balls, and,
finally, the dancing horseshoe. Head all the way back to darby. To complete the mission,
you need to freeze all the fountains. This is where that clue Sparx told you near the
beginning about things that can change forms if you use your ability will be helpful.
Freeze each fountain to change it's form. Once you get ???, you will get a firefly.

Right when you walk into the portal, there is a little mouse named Christopher. He will
talk to you and relay the mission to you.

Christopher: I say, old boy, those miserable rhynocs have been planting bombs everywhere
             to search for hidden gems. They'll destroy all of the beautiful artifacts
             that we've worked ever so hard to uncover! I wish we could get rid of 
             these bombs somehow! Perhaps there's something you can do to help us out?

Oh boy, another adventure. Head left where you will see a huge bomb; ram it into the
water, but don't fall. You'll encounter a rhynoc that throws something (a boomerang?)
Head up the platform stairs to meet another rhynoc. Glide to the other island and you
will see another bomb to ram off. The mission of this level is to get rid of all the
bombs. Here are the following locations of all 7 bombs:
1.) In the beginning, go up from where Christopher (the mouse) is
2.) When you cross the platform in the beginning
3.) Next to the first mummy you meet
4.) On a huge temple to the right of bomb #3
5.) On a purple platform next to the fairy (next to bomb #4)
6.) Head left from bomb #5 to another purple platform
7.) A little island surrounded by water and then land

Once you get all 7 bombs, talk to Christopher the mouse again.

Christopher: Smashing time, old boy! Those rhynocs will have a devil of a time trying
             to get at the gems now! You're a credit to us all. Here, please have this
             ancient fire symbol. Goodness! I do believe it's alive!

Now, you need to freeze all the lemonades; here are the locations:

Lemonade Locations:
1.) In the beginning on a purple platform
2.) Next to the huge temple
3.) Next to bomb #6 (check above)
4.) Next to the room under a hill (head right from bomb #5)
5.) Next to the unbreakable purple rock
6.) On the tall purple platform near the left bottom corner of the map
7.) Head right from lemonade #6
8.) Near the very rightmost corner of the map

This level is pretty easy, your typical side scroller shooting game. There isn't really
a faq for this level, seeing how easy this leve is. I just want to say, keep going up... 
Everytime you see a platform you can go up, go up it. The higher, the closer you get to 
finishing the level. You will complete the game when you get the single firefly. You 
have a laser that recharges very quickly, for fast shooting when getting those annoying
rhynocs. I wouldn't really waste my time to get the jewels, but if you want to, go ahead
and knock yourself out. It takes some time. When you see doors, press up to unload the 
thing it does (for example: the door with a green laser sign on top charges your 
laser to 26). Watch out for falling jewels, and duck when shooting people to get them when
they are ducking and to dodge when they shoot. Good luck, not that you will really need 
it...

Right when you go in, a pink elephant stands next to you. Talk to him:

Ben: Welcome to our humble, little purple traveler, but you have picked the very worst
     possible day for your visit. We have been hiding from those cursed rhynocs, and
     unable to care for our temple. Now our paths are overgrown with vines and we
     cannot have our parade.

Well, I said I would make a strategy section, didn't I? I just decided that is was 
big enough to make a whole new section. Anyways, on to business.

=========================================================================================

CHALLENGE PORTAL 1: Help Mabel keep the milk cold

When you are talking to Mabel, make sure you switch to your ice ability, because right
after she finishes talking to you, the challenge starts. 6 Jars will fall down, and 
look like this (I numbered the jars myself:
      _
KEY: / \ = jar

=============================================
|           _         _         _            |
|          /1\       /2\       /3\           |
|                                            |
|           _         _         _            |
|          /4\       /5\       /6\           |
|                                            |
|============================================

Since the nearest jar you start from is 4, run to it and use your ice ability on it to
keep it cool. Then run to 5, then 6, then 3, then 2, then 1, then 4 and so on. It's like
this:
      _
KEY: / \ = jar
   : f = frozen
   : ---> = move right
   : <--- = move left
   : /\ = move up
      |

   : | = move down
    \/

=============================================
|           _         _         _            |
|          /1\  <--- /2\ <---  /3\           |
|           |                   /\           |
|           \/                   |           |
|                     _                      |
|          /f\  ---> /f\ ----> /6\           |
|                                            |
|============================================

You have the run as fast as you can. If you miss, then it's probably over unless you
can recover fastly. Each jar will count down on how long it has to freeze. After about
you save all jars about 2 times each, you will beat the challenge.

=========================================================================================

CHALLENGE PORTAL 2: Freeze all the Fire Pixies

This is a game sort of like Freeze Tag, the tag game where people are frozen when you
tag them and you win when everyone is frozen. The fire pixies are fast, but once you 
catch one of them, the whole thing is in the bag. Puppy guard him (stay in the area to
make sure nobody unfreezes him). Keep freezing him and never let him out of your sight.
The other fireflies will try to save it, and when they do, they will get caught in your
guarding of the firefly and freeze to. To my surprise, there were only 3 fireflies. It
looks like more, doesn't it?

KEY: F = fire pixie
     Ff = frozen fire pixie
     S = you (spyro)
     ]] = ice breath path

WHEN 1 FIRE PIXIE IS FROZEN:

2 ARE FROZEN WHEN GUARDING ONE:
=============================================
|                                            |
|   F                                        |

|                                            |
|============================================


FINALLY, ALL 3 ARE FROZEN:
=============================================
|                                            |
|                                            |  
|                                            |
|           s  Ff  Ff   Ff                   |
|                                            |
|                                            |
|                                            |
|============================================

You can use this strategy when you go against more, but it's a little hard with more
than three. You have to be alert when you do it, not just on a straight path. You can
do things, such as spin around when you breath, that's wut I did...
