Ty 3 the Tasmanian Tiger: Night of the Quinkan
Ty is back in his third
instalment of this popular little platforming game developed by the
Australian Krome Studios. As with the previous games in the series, it
is aimed at the young player with its ease of play, however old gamers
will still get a chuckle out of the whole deal with the fun characters
that inhabit the gameworld.
The game deals with the collection of stones and
other artefacts which can get a little overbearing at times but the
whole thing is pretty easy to figure out and the collecting items is
just one of the many things that you will have to do to progress through
The story picks up shortly after the second Ty game
with all being peaceful after the threat of Boss Cass has passed. All
seems well until the dark spirits known as the Quinkan invade The
Dreaming, and itís up to Ty and the Bush Rescue team to do what they do
The game includes all the usual platforming elements
and some environmental obstacles plus puzzles that must be navigated to
make your way through the title. Ty has the use of his trusty battle
rangs and also some fantastic vehicles and battle armor to soup up his
skills against stronger foes.
The world that the game resides in is huge and there
are times when going between worlds that you might experience a bit of
time with level loading so be patient as door do not always open quite
as quickly as one might expect. This is rare but something to note.
One thing about the Ty series is that graphically it
is a bit rough with squared off images as opposed to some of the more
polished titles that have made their way into the platforming genre. It
works for this title though and is suited entirely to the gaming
environment. Audio is humorous and the little storyline that is
presented is rendered using the game engine.
For a title that is quick, fun and easy to get into,
both kids and adults should have some fun playing this one. The grownups
or older players will most likely rip through it in no time, but the
youngsters should get many hours of enjoyable playtime out of it.
