G'day mate! Things can be a bit confusing at times, so let me remind you what's going on...
You are TY, the last of the Tasmanian Tigers. Raised by a family of Bilbies, you can only vaguely recall your real parents. You've always thought that all the other Tassie Tigers died a long time ago.

But then the Bunyip Elder found you, and told you that your family is alive, but trapped in the Dreaming. Now hold your horses... don't get upset... you see they're not stuck there forever, if you're up for a bit of an adventure!
You see, deep in the Outback, there's this kind of glowy portal thing that is a doorway to the Dreaming. And around that portal there are some carvings in the rock, where five ancient mystical Talismans used to lay. Now, all you have to do is find the five Talismans, put them in the carvings, and the portal to Dreaming will open!

Now, before you go off like a frog in a sock, there's just this one SMALL problem. You see there's this evil cassowary - Boss Cass - who's also after the Talismans. Yes. THAT Boss Cass. The one that trapped your family in the Dreaming in the first place, and told the school board to remove all the meat pies from the tuck shops. And if you didn't think that made him enough of a megalomaniac, he's ALSO trapped a whole bunch of your Bilby mates in cages all across the outback... something about overdue library books... Anyways, if you want to open the portal, you'll have to beat him and his henchmen to the Talismans!

Don't worry though, you won't be alone! You'll have a bunch of friends to help you along the way, including me - your old mate, Maurie. Now let's get down to brass tacks, find those Talismans, and rescue your family!

TY the Tasmanian Tiger reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Early Access Review In Steam seen on the Home Page, purchased directly! Even at the Start Of the game, the Tears Came to me, that Nostalgia factor was just too strong. I played TY at the XBOX Classic back then, with the good old Klopper from Gamepad, unpleasant But earlier that was great! TY the Tasmanian Tiger is a Platformer, the Game principle is likely to be described relatively simply with "Mario 64-like." A big Focus of the Game is the Collecting Tasks, and there are enormous numbers of that. The Overworld is divided into 3 "Segments," each of which compels 3 Levels. In each Level, 8 Tasks have to be completed, each of which is rewarded with an Amulet Stone (English: "Eggs"). In which Order you go to the Tasks is up to you. To get to the next Segment, you need a certain Number of these Amulet stones, but you don't have to collect all The collecting to get a priority in the Game. Since the Levels are peppered with Enemies, you must of course also be able to fight back. According to An Australian Cliché, you get pressed a Boomerang in your Hand, which you can hurl your Enemies in the Face. And you'll get a lot more unique Boomerels for Collecting the Amulet stones and Gears. For Amulet stones there is the elementary rank, which you also need to get into new Segments, among other things, since these are (quite coincidentally) always blocked with something, which can be destroyed with a suitable elementary rank. For the Gears you get the "techno ranks," these are unique Boomerises, all of Which have a uniquely cool Function. Be surprised, it's worth collecting! The Difficulty of the Game is very simple, which could undercut some "Hardcore Gamers" somewhat. However, this makes it easily accessible to everyone and also suitable for Children. Sometimes something relaxing for in between, I like to assume. Graphically, the Game has aged very well, and still looks very handsome in the Original Version. Clearly some Models are a bit unclean shaped, clearly some Textures are mushy, but at least with the second one the Developer still wants to fix. Not only for old Fans of the Game, which was Originally published on September 10, 2002, the PC Port is likely to become a Nostalgic Emotional Ride. Even those who can't do anything with TY, I would like to recommend the Game. Clear Recommendation! Info: This Review refers to the 2nd Patch, so another very early Version of the Game! I Played with the Steam Controller, which works natively with the Game. I had not turned on any Graphic Effects, as they did not tell me. I finished the Game at 100% (Except Hidden Pictures, As there was not the new Counter there yet).
