The European title doesn't have an exclamation mark in it. Ohh, if you want it to be possessive, it's just I-T-S, but if it's supposed to be a contraction then it's I-T-apostrophe-S... scallywag.
''Tomba!'', known as ''Tombi!'' in Europe and ''Ore! Tomba'' in Japan, is a cult-favorite TwoAndAHalfD adventure series composed of two games starring a pink-haired jungle boy. Tomba must fight the Evil Swine, who have turned the world into a much darker place through the power of their own evil magic, using platforming skills across a fairly large game world.
