About This Game
STREWTH! It’s time to go back Down Under with this fully remastered version of TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2: Bush Rescue, the sequel to the best Thylacine Simulator ever. Once again rang, bite, smash and glide your way around the Australian Outback and help the people of the SOUTHERN RIVERS against the evil machinations of the diabolical BOSS CASS.
More rangs, more vehicles, more mechs, more EVERYTHING… in an open world Aussie Adventure. There might even be a few surprises along the way…
- Huge open world to explore, with 18 rangs, and a wide variety of vehicles and mechs.
- Two-player split-screen cart racing.
- Improved graphics; including updated shadows, reflections, HD resolutions and 60fps.
- Steamworks integration for achievements and leaderboards.
- Character customization with new skins for TY and paint jobs for the fourbie!
Long ago, a great battle was fought. BOSS CASS sought out five mystic talismans, so he could banish every warm blooded creature, to the DREAMING.
But one brave soul stood up to CASS, and thwarted his quest for the talismans. He risked all, in an effort to save his family and friends.
And in the end… he succeeded. CASS was banished for his crimes, and the land was made safe once again. All thanks to to one lone hero…
TY the Tasmanian Tiger.
Now, evil stirs again – the little country town of CURRAWONG is under attack, and a hero is needed once more…

Many of the issues that made this game average during the original release have been fixed in this port.
-Driving the car, for instance, no longer has road blocks or mud to keep you slow enough to let the game load in. Infact, driving is actually faster in this port, making traveling the outback fun.
-Kart racing, for those who cared, has also been touched up and feels better.
-One can now use all boomerangs, upgraded rangs no longer replace your starter rangs. The biggest issue in the original release, the kaboomerang replacing the smashering, is not an issue anymore.
-Missions that were a one time only play through, are now replayable. This means all bosses are replayable.
– A new addition, skins for the car and Ty himself, can be earned or bought in game.
– More scenic models are present as the game is no longer constrained by PS2 era memory. The game as a whole looks more lively because of this.
-Tons of controls in general were update. The doomerang, for instance, controls much better and has a far better range of movement now.
– Tons of UI updates and much much more
Realisticly speaking, I have never seen a port get as much love and care as this one has. If you were a fan of the original game, you will love this definitive version of the game.
Excellent sequel to the first Ty the Tasmanian Tiger. The hub world has improved greatly as there’s more place to find nooks and crannies. Much like my previous experiences with Ty 1, the characters, bosses, and gameplay all in all are top notch. Each of those missions give me that rewarding good feeling after completing them and I’m amazed by diversity of those missions. Ty the Tasmanian Tiger 2 is a good pick for those who enjoy adventure games and collecting things.
I look forward to seeing this game get updated in the future.

~ Good ol’ platforming fun!
~ Great support for modern systems!
~ Freedom to do missions in your own order.
~ Weird design choices
~ Collecting all hidden items is a mixed bag
Following their failed attempt to keep Cass locked up the heroes form Bush Rescue. This strike team will allow them to better respond to distress calls all over the outback. Boss Cass his whereabouts are known but due to diplomatic immunity the heroes cannot arrest him. This is because Cass has setup his own country called Cassopolis.
Ty 2 is a platformer in heart. The core gameplay is solid and fun. Ty feels good to control, And jumping feels responsive and fast. Two attack types are available: his Boomerangs and a Bite Attack, he is a Tiger after all.
The boomerangs come in many types, like Fire, Ice and rope Boomerangs. You can get them in shops in town and upgrade at Sly’s tree house. You use the Red Coins you collect all over the outback to pay for them. These ‘Rangs make combat and platforming easier and will allow ty to reach places he couldn’t reach before.
Other than ‘Rangs you can also buy Bunyip license. Bunyip’s are mech suits used for combat, exploration or clearing a path.
Having the licenses is required to do some missions, same goes for the Boomerangs. This is a very annoying aspect of the design, because you’re not always told what license or ‘Rang you will need to do the mission. (Get them as soon as you can!)
This review is based on the latest ”Experimental” build of TY the Tasmanian Tiger 2 on Steam.
Version: Build r2675_v071
If youre a big fan of platformers like Rayman 2 and if you have a soft spot of cheesy Saturday morning cartoons Ty the Tasmanian tiger 2 will be right up your ally

If you spot a mistake in grammer you can let me know, ill try to fix it.
Much like the first game, they’ve managed to make this game work like an absolute dream.
Perftectly optimised and you can tell they worked on this with lots of love and care. This game is definitely worth buying if you haven’t gotten it already.
Now we just need the third. Keep it up Krome, good work.
It took me ten years, TEN YEARS, to get to 100%.
Totally worth every hour. I have zero regrets and my childhood self is happy.
loved it… much better then the original. I hope that if they remake ty 3 the do the same… and online gunyip fighting!!!!!!!
10/10 (so far, don’t ruin it plz)
