  • Summary: Meet TY, a fearless Tasmanian tiger in the wild and untamed Australian wilderness. Skilled in the art of boomerang combat, TY not only survives the dangerous Australian Outback, he runs, jumps, swims, and glides through it. As TY, you'll encounter more than 50 wild characters based on real-life indigenous animals of Australia. Not all of them are nice--so give your enemies a taste of eight different boomerangs. When you're not busy in combat, you'll solve puzzles, collect items, and participate in races. Collapse

  1. With a total of nine levels and three boss battles, the total runtime of Ty is about ten hours flat.
  2. The game is also beautiful beyond measure, with water, weaving grass, snow, mud, and other terrain effects that, at least for now, are pretty much unequalled, and boast sound effects to match. [Oct 2002, p.68]
  3. If you’re new to the genre, this would be a good game to get you started into the style.
  4. 16 levels of wild 3-D action. [Dec 2002, p.220]
  5. 68
    The ultra-friendly gameplay and simplistic cartoony rendering certainly won't put the face of this new mascot on any t-shirts anytime soon.
  6. 64
    A decent (yet sadly derivative) game lying underneath the mess.
  7. Name almost any gaming cliché and Ty is making you yawn by using it.

    This is a great game for adults and small children. My grandson (nearly 6) loves the biting & repeats the beginning level over & over deliberately. He also enjoys playing my saved game where I have unlocked all the levels. Expand

    This is the best platform game I ever read and play with all the boomarangs and items I think this is the best.

    It was great, I really liked the action in it. It could have been better, but I would have only changed a few things. Great game!
