Game Facts

Release Date: Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly was launched on November 5, 2002 in the US, and November 29, 2002 in the EU. It is referred to as Spyro 4 in some circles but that is not its official title.

Developers: The game was developed by Equinoxe Digital Entertainment and Check Six Studios.

Antagonist – Ripto: In Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly, players confront the notorious villain Ripto, who have stolen dragonflies, creating the central conflict that Spyro must resolve.

Gameplay: Players take on the role of Spyro, the beloved purple dragon known for his fire-breathing abilities. The gameplay offers platforming challenges, puzzles, and combat scenarios as Spyro embarks on a journey across diverse realms in pursuit of the dragonflies. Bubble breath and electric breath are new abilities!

Composer – Stewart Copeland: The game’s soundtrack, like its predecessor Spyro 2, was composed by Stewart Copeland, famous for his role as the drummer in the band The Police. But Peter Neff, Kenneth Burgomaster and Emiliano Almeida arguably does not get enough credit for his work too.

Nostalgia: Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly holds a place in the hearts of fans, but maybe not for the best of reasons. It’s considered the glitchiest game in the Spyro series.

Soundtrack: The game’s soundtrack is noteworthy for its enchanting and immersive melodies, contributing to the game’s overall atmosphere – but also for sounding different to the other Spyro games. Again, this is due to Peter, Kenneth and Emiliano’s involvement.

Releases: Spyro: Enter the Dragonfly was only released the one time. Effectively the best way to play the game is to use the Dolphin Emulator and force it to run at 60fps.

Spyro 4 Soundtrack Review by CrystalFissure

The Enter the Dragonfly soundtrack is definitely good. I can’t call it bad by any stretch! But I do believe it’s just not up to the same standard as the Spyro 1-3 tracks. Copeland had a bit of help this time from Peter T. Neff and two others, who actually created 24 of the tracks in the game, and then he passed them over to Stewart Copeland to effectively “refine” the tracks. The thing with ETD is that the game was genuinely disappointing at the time, and still is today because of the wasted potential. So to some degree, that applies to the music as well because some of the best tracks weren’t even in the final game.

Of course, there are still quite a few highlights! I love “Cloud 9”, and in fact most Spyro fans cite that level having great music. It’s the most “Copeland-esque” track of them all. The Dragon Realms theme is similarly iconic and listeners may notice some samples from certain packs that appear in other games, most notably LSD Dream Emulator! Crop Circle Country has an interesting vibe, very much more of an electronic, almost downtempo feeling. It’s nice that they didn’t go to simply make the same soundtrack as Spyro 1, 2 and 3 because while that would be welcomed by most fans, it gives ETD a different feel. One strength of the Enter the Dragonfly soundtrack is that the sub-levels contained their own music. So you’d get a separate track for the tank challenge, sliders, other vehicles etc. 

I also love “Thieves Den” both as a level and as a music track. A dark, moody track with a fun progression. Monkey Monastery also fits the vibe of the ice level, as does Luau Island. How the music fits the levels is a minor miracle, although maybe it’s just my familiarity with the game. For many years, Enter the Dragonfly fans weren’t aware of Kenneth Burgomaster, Peter Neff and Emiliano Almeida’s involvement in the soundtrack. As it turns out, they actually laid the foundation for many of the final tracks in the game. This is a reason why it feels so different to Spyro 1-3’s music generally.

Overall, a good video game soundtrack and something I’d recommend listening to as a Spyro fan, but don’t expect the same vibe of the first three Spyro game OSTs. Enter the Dragonfly will always be a controversial game in the series but the game’s music has always been loved, and so the nicest things you can say about Spyro’s fourth outing is “the music’s pretty good!”.
