There’s been a rare sighting of the Tasmanian Tiger, last seen out in the wild almost two decades ago. That’s right, everyone’s favourite boomerang chucking Thylacine is back in TY the Tasmanian Tiger HD, which has been spotted lurking around the Xbox One market. So, come on mates, let’s head down under!
The Aussie hero is back for a ripper of an adventure in TY the Tasmanian Tiger HD, a remastered version of the 2002 game. In this nostalgic platformer, join TY as he embarks upon a journey to collect five mystical talismans. Through acquiring these talismans, he’s able to free his family from the ‘Dreaming’ and stop Boss Cass, an evil genius that happens to be a cassowary. You’ll become immersed in the Australian Outback while exploring the 17 levels on offer, which will house a number of enemies to tackle. In order to deal with these baddies, TY has the help of friends, some large teeth, and a real beaut of an arsenal, containing 13 different boomerangs including the Frostyrang, Flamerang and powerful Doomerang.
But what’s new? Well, TY the Tasmanian Tiger HD’s 3D environments, characters, particle effects and audio have been enriched, alongside new graphical effects like fully dynamic shadows, colour correction, and bloom. Naturally, leaderboards and achievements have been implemented into the game, to add a competitive edge. There’s also a Hardcore Mode, which is a completely new addition to the original and challenges you to survive the Outback with only a single life.
If you’re wanting to open up a portal to the Dreaming dimension, you must first purchase TY the Tasmanian Tiger HD from the Xbox Store for £23.49. Before you know it, you’ll be flinging that boomerang around and having a corking good time.
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 the 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!
