It is freeware since 2004. The official page of author Jason Emery no longer exists (and was quite sparse), so it's better to refer to [[http://members.iinet.net.au/~vannevar/tyrian/ this excellent fansite]]. Since 2010, it is also available on [[http://www.gog.com/game/tyrian_2000 GOG.com]], with the game's music encoded into a collection of MP3 files (about 12 times as large, disk-space-wise, as the game itself) as a bonus download. [[http://lostgarden.com/2007/04/free-game-graphics-tyrian-ships-and.html Even the graphics were released with an open license.]] A source port of the game from Pascal to C, called ''[[https://bitbucket.org/opentyrian/opentyrian/wiki/Home OpenTyrian]]'', is available for many platforms and consoles.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons: One of the {{secret character}}s in ''200'' is a dragon that shoots fire and lightning as its main attacks. Also, Torm had [[OurDragonsAreDifferent worm-like dragons]] that tried to [[RammingAlwaysWorks rush the character]] for heavy damage. The final boss of Episode 2 was also a blue griffin-like dragon.

** The 2.0 patch for the game could be considered one, given that it adds a lot of new content, such as end of episode minigames, Super Arcade mode and a fourth episode that practically doubles the game's length.

** One of the {{secret character}}s]] is the very first {{mook}} you meet in the first level of the first episode. While its arsenal of attacks is rather so-so, some of the weapons it can obtain are powerful, like the Mega Cannon.

[[TheFuture It is the year 20,031.]] [[PlayerCharacter You are Trent Hawkins]], a [[TerraForm terraformation]] pilot currently assigned to the planet Tyrian, the only planet in the entire sector that contains samples of [[{{Unobtainium}} Gravitium]], a material that causes huge chunks of its landmass to [[FloatingContinent float in the air]]. While on the job, Trent's best friend, Buce Quesillac, a [[LizardFolk Hazudra]], was shot in the back by a hoverdrone belonging to [[MegaCorp Microsol]], the company in charge of the terraformation efforts on Tyrian. With his dying breath, Buce informs Trent that Microsol intends to use the Gravitium to take control of the sector, and that he's next on their hit list. With that, Trent begins a long, dangerous fight for his survival.
