What is required to complete this level in 100%?
To complete Colossus in 100%, you have to do the following things:
- Collect 400 crystals.
- Collect the talisman.
- Collect 3 orbs.
You start on a small platform. Collect crystals and speak with the Monk. Jump down and defeat goats on the glade.
Collect all crystals and head towards the gate. It is locked, but the nearby Monk will open it as soon as you get closer to it. You are now in the temple's yard. You encounter two yaks . Use flames to defeat them. Collect all crystals and then go towards the passage at the end of the yard.
The Monk  will allow you to pass. You reach another glade. Defeat two goats and a yak. Here, you will also find a Powerup Gate that allows you to use Spring Jump. However, you can't use this one yet - Spyro doesn't have enough spirit particles.
Go through the door next to the gate. Collet all crystals that are in the first room and then go through the door to the next room. You find a Monk - he activates a platform that will help you reach upper parts of the building. Before you do that, collect all crystals and lives in this room.
Leave the platform and get on a small ledge. Collect crystals and jump on the next ledge. Do the same here. Another ledge is behind a narrow passage that divides the platform you are standing on into two parts.
The window near the last platform allows you to reach another glade. Eliminate three goats and collect all crystals on the glade. Ignore the inactive Powerup Gate and head towards the small cabin. The Monk standing near it informs you that the Yeti is inside of this cabin. Ignore him and go inside. You don't have to fight with this enemy - the Yeti will defeat itself. You receive a golden statue. Collect crystals inside the cabin. Exit by going through the windows.
You are on a narrow path that leads to a frozen pond. You find stairs that will take you to a hockey rink. Find the Monk who will give you challenges no. 2 and 3.
Complete them. Go back on the glade next to the Yeti's cabin. Both Powerup Gates are now active - you can use them. Thanks to it you will be able to reach the upper floor of the building, the same one that allowed you to access the glade. You find the Professor - he gives you challenge no. 1.
Jump down on the roof right below the entrance to the room with the Professor. Collect crystals and use flames on the rocket. It will destroy a rocket standing on a small column. Jump on it and collect crystals. Then, jump on the adjacent ledge. Eliminate the yak and the goat. Collect all crystals.
Go back to the first Powerup Gate you have encountered. You will be able to jump on the roof of Yeti's cabin. You find a path that leads to a cave with crystals.
You can also jump from the Yeti's cabin on the small rooftop - use hover ability to do that. The small rooftop has a few crystals.
Challenge 1: Destroy 10 green statues
Difficulty: 3 stars.
Commentary: Use flames on all 10 monk statues that are on the map. "Purified" statues are marked with a different color. A gold statue isn't possessed by an evil spirit. The statues are in the following spots:
- Two statues are near the entrance to the room with the Professor (this challenge's giver).
- One statue is on the stone ledge on the opposite of the temple in which you have started this challenge.
- Two statues are in front of the first gate you went through after starting this level.
- One statue is at the end of the same yard where you found the two previous statues. This statue is on the passage's left.
- One statue is in the room with the platform that moves up and down.
- One statue is on the glade with the Yeti's cabin.
- One statue is standing on the passage that leads to the hockey rink.
- One is in the cave that you can reach from the rooftop of the Yeti's cabin.
Challenge 2: Score 5 shots in 2 minutes
Difficulty level: 2 stars.
Commentary: This challenge is given to you by the Monk standing near the hockey rink. This is the first out of the two challenges given to you by this Monk. You need to score 5 shots in 2 minutes. The challenge seems easy, but you can have a few problems with it. To shoot, Spyro needs to catch a hockey puck. You move on ice which means that you can't use charge. Also, Spyro's moves are slowed down. Be very careful where you shoot.
You also need to trick the goalkeeper. Aim at the opposite corner of the goal. The goalkeeper won't be able to catch the puck.
Challenge 3: Defeat an enemy at hockey
Difficulty level: 3 stars.
Commentary: This is the second challenge received from the Monk near the hockey rink. You need to score 5 goals before your enemy does that. The rules and the gameplay are the same. However, Spyro will also have to deal with his enemy.
Simply keep using your flames on the enemy. This attack will knock him down - the enemy loses precious time allowing you to catch the puck and score a goal.
