Long ago, Ty's family knocked all five talismans out of Boss Cass' hands just as he was banishing them into the Dreamtime. This caused an explosion which scattered the talismans across the land. Now, Ty is in a mad race against Boss Cass to get them back. Collect all five talismans and bring them back to Rainbow Cliffs. Soon, the Tasmanian Tigers will be free to populate the world once again.
In Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, the Talismans are the keys to opening a portal to a mystical dimension known as the Dreamtime. Boss Cass used the Talismans to open a portal to rid the world of all mammals. However, he was only succesful in removing the Tasmanian Tigers, because Ty's family knocked them out of their places before he defeated them. Ty can locate the Talismans by collecting thunder eggs to power Julius' talsiman machine, which will open up a portal to a boss world, where he must defeat a boss character to retrieve one.
