Spyro: A Hero's Tail (developed by Eurocom) is the fifth main-line game in the Spyro franchise, and this time around there's a new villain named Red, a former Dragon Elder who threatens to take over the world.

Over the past games in the series Ebbe has grown tired of having to collect countless items to even get a chance at kicking the bad guys' butts. Using a variety of tricks like infinite jumping, clipping through geometry, swimming through the air, and many more (see the author's detailed submission notes), Ebbe skips all of the nonsense and confronts Red and his henchmen right away, saving the world in record time.

An encode with audio commentary by the author can be watched here. An encode with all of the cutscenes removed can be viewed here.

Note that there are some emulation problems for this game that result in some scenes (particularly the minecart section) becoming overly bloomed and blurred.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
