Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is a throwback to the classic platformers -- more in the vein of classic Mario Bros than anything of today's standards. As such, it offers a good, solid gameplay experience that players of virtually all ages will be able to enjoy. On the flip side, it doesn't offer anything mind-blowing or revolutionary, and seasoned gamers who have already spent years of playing through similar games will find little in this game to entice them. It is worth pointing out, though, that this game is built to work on Windows 8 computers as well as Windows RT tablets. So players can romp through the cartoon outback with a mouse and keyboard, with an Xbox 360 controller, or just by using touch-screen controls. Each method of play has its own unique experience. In short, the game follows the formula of a good platformer game and comes easily recommended as a fun and enjoyable game with enough levels and side quests to keep players entertained for a while.
