TY The Tasmanian Tiger 2 AnnouncedTY the Tasmanian Tiger 2 picks up where the original popular action platform game left off. The cast of characters from down under has grown, and so has the action! The evil Boss Cass is up to his old tricks. After breaking out of Currawong Jail, this feathered villain has re-instated himself as the dictatorial ruler of Cassopolis, a high tech island home to lizards and birds. Now Cass has hatched a plan to take over the world with an army of Uber Reptiles. It’s up to our boomerang-wielding hero, TY, and his newly formed team of Burramudgee Bush Rescue mates to stop Cass! Set in the Outback of Australia, TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2 will offer platform gamers a huge open environment to explore by foot and vehicle. This time around TY is equipped with an arsenal of 21 upgradeable boomerangs, including the Lasharang, Kaboomarang, and Megarang. In addition, the game will feature five different “Mech units” to help TY fight large numbers of enemies and complete mini-missions. With these “Mech units” TY will have the ability to swim under lava; shoot lasers, Blastorangs, water or fire; and much more. TY will also be challenged to complete driving and flying missions featuring combat and puzzle solving, with access to helicopters, submarines, and off-road trucks. Unlockable cart racing mini-games will allow gamers to challenge their friends in seven unique cart racing levels. Under development by Australia-based Krome Studios, the team behind the original TY the Tasmanian Tiger, TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2 is scheduled for release this fall for the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube, and Game Boy Advance.
