Product description

Product Description

Ty is a wild, charismatic, boomerang wielding Tasmanian tiger whose adventures take the player through a brilliantly animated 3-D environment set in the ruggedness and splendour of Australia. His adventurous journey sees him tracking down five Talismans to unlock a portal to another world where his fellow Tasmanian tigers are trapped. Traversing through a wide range of locations including the rainforest, snowy mountains, desert terrain and a barrier reef, he will encounter a large cast of characters--both friends and foes--all of whom are based on real-life animals that are indigenous to the Australian Outback. The game offers many elements customary in to character-based action titles, including Ty's usage of signature boomerangs as well as his chomping abilities, and provides a wide selection of gameplay styles such as combat, riding, puzzles and an array of mini-games.

Manufacturer's Description

Take on the role of Ty, who's always believed that he's the lone remaining Tasmanian Tiger--until, during a chance meeting with a mystical bunyip elder, Ty discovers that his fellow Tasmanian Tigers are still alive but trapped in another world, Dreamtime. In order to unlock and open the portal to Dreamtime, Ty must go on an adventure to find five stolen talismans. So begins his journey through a wide range of locations including the rainforest, snowy mountains, billabongs, the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef.

Ty the Tasmanian Tiger will offer a light-hearted and humorous action adventure experience where players will encounter a bevy of madcap characters based on real-life animals that are indigenous to Australia. For example, the charismatic Ty is inspired by the extinct Tasmanian tiger and his main enemy, the evil Boss Cass is a cassowary with a bad attitude.

Ty is a Tasmanian Tiger trying to rescue his fellow tigers. I think this game has brilliant gameplay and a great story line. If you are looing for a game in 2004... This is the one!

By A Customer on 5 Jan. 2003
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is a sweet little platform game in which you power the Australian mammal through various environments to find five talismans. However, despite having incredible graphics, this game is short-lived and quite frankly easy. A meagre 11 proper levels and a "final battle" which is just as easy as the rest of the game mean this game is over before it's even begun. A shame, as it had potential.

TY is an Australian tiger. Based in the outback you must control this character around the level using your trusty boomerang and bite abilities.
Firstly the game looks good. Graphics are clear and the frame rate is fast without slow down. The game is no Mario but it is in the same league with games like Spyro.
The control style is simple and easy to use. The camera is also surprisingly good and is not hard to control like some games.
The music and sound effects are all based around the Australian theme which is original and something different to hear in a game. The voice acting is also good apart from one or two characters.
One bad point about this game is that it is too slow. This is because TY is not all that fast at running and the levels are big. Even killing enemies feels like a slow process as they all have animations that they carry out before you finish them off.
Overall the game has a fresh new look and feel that will keep platformer fans happy. This is no Mario, and could be a little slow for some. But generally is quite good that would keep both kids and adults happy.

Ty is quite possibly one of the best Gamecube games I've ever played! The graphics are absolutely spot-on, and the dialogue, well...having a few Oz relatives myself, I can say it's impeccable! If you want a game that is just all around fun with a few challenges thrown in, buy Ty!
