Play involves exploring the 3D levels to find the eggs and access the Talisman Machine to progress to the next zone. This requires you to run and jump around to reach different areas. You can attack enemies with his bite or dual boomerangs. As you progress you can upgrade your boomerangs to be more effective and useful.
Each level is cleared by collecting a certain number of eggs and getting to the end of the path. Once you have enough eggs you must find the Talisman Machine and defeat a series of boss enemies that then grant you access to a new zone.

The Ty the Tasmanian Tiger games are unusual for their exploration and battling play that made 3D platform games popular in the early 2000's. It's simpler than more recent games, and focuses on fun and quirky characters rather than polish. The remastered versions upgrade visuals and bring them to modern consoles.
Some of the animal characters in the game can be unsettling for kids. Spiders, sharks and big eels which are pretty intimidating.
9-12 year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Younger children often take to the characters in the game, although do need some co-ordination and perseverance to find all the eggs. One family told us their children loved it and were "inspired me to want to paint the characters? And spent hours exploring the world."
