Gamers of the world, prepare to meet Ty, a new 3D-adventure hero from Electronic Arts. Chances are that he's the most charismatic Tasmanian Tiger you'll ever meet, partially because the species is extinct.
Electronic Arts UK website - PlayStation 2/Xbox/GameCube:
In Ty the Tasmanian Tiger for Nintendo GameCube, Ty's family has been trapped in the Dreamtime world and now he must recover five stolen talismans to free them. No worries, mate! You can use Ty's boomerang flinging abilities and powerful chomping teeth to overcome many obstacles.
Developed by Australian codeshop Krome Studios, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger's authentic Down Under touches set it apart from other action games. In the Dreamtime -- a key part of Aboriginal creation lore -- Ty journeys to a rainforest, snowy mountains, deserts, barrier reef and other Outback locales. The game is populated by a crazy cast of more than 50 characters based on indigenous animals of Australia. You will yabber (that's Australian for "jabber," mate) with exotic birds and see more marsupials than you can shake a eucalyptus stick at.
Ty is no bludger (Australian for "loafer"). He can run, jump, swim and glide with ease. There are even several upgrades for the your trusty boomerang that will no doubt be helpful when combating the many enemies and bosses. Puzzles and minigames mix-up the action.
With colorful graphics, wide-open 3D environments and a wild Australian setting, Ty certainly makes a "Crikey!" class splash on the Nintendo GameCube.
