Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue, the sequel to the original Ty the Tasmanian Tiger game, is now available to play on PC and has been brought up to modern standards. The game continues the saga of the eponymous Tasmanian tiger (or thylacine) as he attempts to stop the evil Boss Cass.
Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is one of those old gems from the days of the original Xbox and Playstation 2, an adventure game and platformer along the lines of games like Jak and Daxter, Crash Bandicoot, Banjo Kazooie, and more that, like every other adventure game of that genre, starred an animal attempting to stop a great evil from collecting a set of relics.
Krome Studios appears to be setting a precedent now, since they released a similarly revamped and remastered Ty the Tasmanian Tiger onto Steam last year. Whether they’ll continue this by putting in the next two games as well remains to be seen, but if the games sell well then there’s no reason why they shouldn’t.
Gameplay in the Tasmanian Tiger games mainly focuses around you collecting five mystical talismans that the villain, a cassowary oh-so-imaginatively named Boss Cass, means to use to banish warm-blooded creatures to another dimension called the Dreaming. Ty must reach these talismans before Cass does by collecting items.
Gameplay in Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue is a bit different, as Ty is now a member of the organization Bush Rescue, dedicated to stopping Boss Cass. Ty will take on various missions like transporting items, rescuing people, and stopping Cass’s minions.
If you want to play Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue for yourself, you can buy it on Steam right now for the pretty low price of $14.99, and you can probably even buy the original game to play as well.
