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.

This is Mario Sunshine without the frustration, Spyro the Dragonfly without the bugs. Ty is a great game of exploration with races, puzzles and enemies a plenty. Good for younger players and casual gamers, though hardcore gamers will probably go though this much quicker, it has everything that is good about classic platform games.

If you are considering buying this for your girlfriend or boyfriend who is over the age of 12 forget it! It is a very childish game and whereas most platforms you can generally say will suit all ages this doesnt! My husband bought me this last christmas and i can honestly say my 4yr old godson and my husbands 8yr old son get more use out of it than i do. The graphics are excellent really colourfull and there is way too much help in there too which does lead me to believe it was designed for the afore mentioned 8 year old so if you are buying it for a child go for it its excellent but if you are slightly older its not really what you are looking for! Sorry!

Looking like a beige puppy in Bermuda shorts, Ty - the last of the Tasmanian Tigers - bounds into his first adventure on PS2. During a friendly chase through the forest, Ty uncovers a hidden cave bedecked with Aboriginal style cave paintings. They detail an evil plot by the cruel cassowary (that's a flightless bird by the way) Boss Cass, who in an attempt to steal five ancient talismans ended up trapping Ty's long-thought-dead family in the mystical Dreamtime realm and scattering the talismans across the Outback. Armed with the knowledge that he's is not the sole surviving member of his race and a wicked pair of boomerangs, Ty's quest begins. It's going to take him all over the Outback (a sort of cartoon Australia) through 16 Oz-themed levels including the Barrier Reef, Rainforest and Billabong.
As you'd expect from a 3D free-roaming platform game, you (as Ty) are required to collect items littering the landscape; this time, trails of glittering Opals are the Pac-Man-esque pick-ups. Although not essential to progress, these Opal routes generally lead you in the direction of the action, but as usual deviating from the path can uncover secret areas and pick-ups. Your major priority is to collect volcanic Thunder Eggs. These are usually obtained by finding an inaccessible area or completing the various sub-missions issued to you by the madcap cast of animal characters. These include objectives such as locating a missing Platypus babe at the top of a nearby mountain or herding a colony of bats from a hollow log before it floods. Once you net 17 Thunder Eggs, one of the missing talismans will be yours.
Boss Cass obviously isn't taking this lying down and you'll face numerous villainous minions on your travels, all inspired by actual down-under fauna.
