A nervous creature decides to punish them with pride and casts all dragons in crystals with a magical spell. Only the small Spyro, due to its small size, avoids entrapment. The hero, with the help of the Sparks dragonfly, sets out to save his brothers and sisters. During his journey he has to defeat Gnasty's numerous henchmen and prevent the theft of dragon eggs.
