Taz: Wanted [Jewel Case] [PC Game]
Developed by: Blitz Games - Infogrames (2002) - 3D Platform - Rated: Everyone
Taz: Wanted for PC has players controlling the famous Looney Tunes character as he spins, snarls, and slobbers his way across
four worlds and 12 levels of 3D platform action. Yosemite Sam desperately wants Taz to be his next exhibit at the Yosemite Zoo
and will stop at nothing to capture him. As a result, Sam has peppered the landscape with wanted posters, littered the ground
with obstacles, and has unleashed a crew of net-wielding animal catchers.
While Taz's first goal is to avoid getting captured, which involves destroying each level's seven wanted posters and running away
from the animal catchers, he must also make his way back home to Tasmania. Taz's wanted level, represented by a cash bounty,
gradually increases the longer he goes without being captured. The higher the bounty, the greater the likelihood of unlocking
special new options from the menu screen. Each time Taz is caught, however, the bounty will decrease.
As he makes his way across the four worlds, Taz can pick up five assorted ACME items for temporary power-ups. These include
"invisibility potions" to temporarily disappear from an enemy's sight, "super burp soda cans" to destroy certain items, "hiccup
soda" causing him to high jump, "mega hot chili peppers" to singe surrounding enemies, and "bubble gum" to fly for short
distances. Taz's voracious appetite has not gone unnoticed by the developers, as the beast can consume most objects and items
he runs across.
As an added bonus, digested items can also be spit up as projectiles used to defeat enemies or to destroy objects. Taz can also
find and gobble up sandwiches, which will reveal a bonus game once 100 have been eaten. In addition, all levels feature ACME
Dial-a-Costume phone booths at various points. When Taz enters a phone booth, he'll be able to don one of ten disguises to fool
enemies. Each costume also features one special attack that, if used, will permanently scare an enemy away from the level.
