It happened so long ago that almost no one remembers this. Is that the four perennial old people that pass this story from generation to generation. The story of the hero that saved countless lives. The story of a little pink-haired boy named Tomba ...
The action of this legend unfolded on a distant and mysterious nameless continent. Once, after an exhausting hunt for a wild boar, Tomba comfortably settled near a fire, leisurely absorbing his prey. Looking around his habitat, he noticed that some pigs were robbing a peasant's cart. Tomba could not accept the injustice and ran to the rescue, but did not calculate his strength a bit, and a tree crashed. When he woke up, there were no pigs, a wagon, or a grandfather's bracelet ...
Without hesitation, Tomba went in search of things important to him. Soon he learned that evil pigs-magicians had attacked the continent. They enchanted many areas, changing their appearance beyond recognition. It was possible to return the bracelet only by beating them all ...
The essence of the game is to fight against pigs. At first, Tomba will have to find 7 bags where he can catch the leaders of the pigs. Then he must discover their habitats and fight with them. Catching every piggy, you will have to fight the most evil of them. Having won that, you will save the world and return the grandfather's bracelet.
