PS2 spiro dawn of dragon - help! my little boys are stuck!
OK - we bought the game, but my poor kids can't get the dragons out of the catacombs. (first level) can anyone help??? very frustrated here....obviously I'm a mama and not a gamer, but my kids really want to play this game so I'm asking for help. when they pick up the 'blue thing' they can't fly far enough to get it up where it goes to the 'tiger dude' at the top. go ahead and laugh!! I have no idea what i'm doing... Sad

I've copied and pasted this from here about "Catacombs 1", the first level in the game. I wholly reccomend using the gamefaqs site for walkthroughs on games. Hope this helps!

Quote:
After a bit of dialogue with Cynder, follow the large orange marker and go
right. Boom! Hunter appears to teach you how to jump, just carry on going right
until you reach some platforms going upwards, jump up them and go left at the
top.

Time to learn to attack, after Hunter's little chat and gift of Fire Breath
continue left. An enemy will popup out of the ground which you should be able
to kill quite easily, either attack from a distance using your breath or close
using melee (both the same button).

Jump up the platforms after it and you're now going to the right. Time to learn
about gems. Go further right and walk up to the green crystal, use your melee
attack on it to smash it and you'll find a gem inside, nice.

Further on to the right and it's time to learn how to glide. Simply follow the
arrows downwards to the ground, smashing the crystals on the way down. Go right
at the bottom (the way might seem blocked but that's actually in the foreground
and you just go behind it, you'll see a lot of that).

Another gameplay tip from Hunter about platforms, step onto the platform behind
him and it'll start going upwards. At the top go left (right is blocked with a
barrier for now) and melee the switch behind Hunter. The barrier on the right
will vanish allowing you past. Step onto the platform beyond it and it'll
lower.

Going right at the bottom and Hunter will teach wall jumping. You just jump at
the wall and if you can you'll grab on automatically then you just press 5 a
few times to reach the top. Go left when you get there and you'll eventually
reach the first checkpoint (the tip glows a bit once you've activated it).

Hit the switch on the wall ahead and the platform you're standing on will rise
upwards. To the right at the apex and talk with Hunter again. Time to smash the
wall on the right, there's really no clear identifier for such walls so smash
into any that has a lot of wall behind it. Smash the crystal behind it to earn
this level's Seal of Perfection. Continue right and you finish this first
level.
