7+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Particularly the earlier levels are suited to the very young. Also, the visuals and characters help keep them engaged. There is still a considerable challenge for older players here too. Adults who remember the game from when they were children also like to revisit this in it's newer form.
Health is indicated by the colour of Sparx the dragonfly. This is constantly moving, and also not colourblind friendly. Although the original games had subtitles, the remastered trilogy leaves these out.
You can choose between 2 different control schemes; Reignited and Classic. Classic reverts the controls back to the way they were in the original Spyro games, while the Reignited control scheme is the standard one in the game.
You can set the camera control to Active, which means that the camera automatically follows you around, negating the use of one of the joysticks. If you want more control over the camera, you can set it to passive, which allows you to move it using the second joystick.
The subtitles are white and on a dark grey background, are relatively large and clear. Other text in the game is often on a purple background, but is also large and clear.
