This GBA bundle includes the two cross-over games, featuring Spyro the Dragon battling Dr. Neo Cortex in Cortex Conspiracy and Crash spinning through the Dragon Realms in Ripto's Rampage.
Spyro Orange: The Cortex Conspiracy and Crash Bandicoot Purple: Ripto's Rampage provide a sort of foreign exchange program for two of VU Games' most recognizable characters. Ripto's Rampage features the endearingly goofy bandicoot questing through Spyro's realms, on a mission to stop the dragon's arch nemesis Ripto. Meanwhile, in The Cortex Conspiracy, Spyro side-scrolls through Crash's jungle game worlds on a quest to defeat bandicoot's usual opponent, Dr. Neo Cortex.
While each game poses different goals and challenges, the two share similar settings and overlapping storylines. Both games feature a trading card collection system, as well. Cards can be found, won, or purchased in the course of the main game and are used to unlock mini-games, additional characters, cheats, and other extras
