    In Taz Wanted, the ravenous, relentless, natural disaster of a hero, Taz, is rip-roaring mad. Yosemite Sam locked him in a zoo and wants to turn Taz's homeland into a tacky theme park! Now as an escapee, Taz is on the run gobbling power-ups, using disguises and leaving a wacky wake of destruction across four hazard-filled worlds in an attempt to stop Sam. Players must help Taz avoid Sam's minions as he races, rumbles and spins his way through four different worlds more than 15 destructible levels.

    Go Wild with Taz, the fun-loving Tasmanian devil and his Looney Toon pals are on the Nintendo GameCube in Taz: Wanted.

    In this 3D platformer, you control the wild and crazy Taz on his quest to escape Yosemite Zoo. You will leave a trail of destruction through more than 15 different levels. At the beginning of each level you will be shown the location of a Wanted Sign that you must destroy. The challenge lies in reaching it.

    Yosemite Sam has left a host of hazards behind including trained Taz Catchers. Fortunately, you have several abilities to help you escape. Taz can sneak, spin, burp, and bounce his way out of a jam.

    Like any good fugitive, Taz dons wacky disguises to evade capture. After stepping into a phone booth, Taz emerges sporting the threads of a skateboarder, cowboy, monster or other improbable character. The change in costume also snags him a special attack. For example, as a snowboarder, Taz can bat snowballs at bad guys.

    Taz: Wanted features appearances from Looney Tunes favorites, including Wile E. Coyote, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird and Sylvester.

    Family and friends can join in the fun with 2 player mini-games.

    Auntie Em! It's a Twister! Well, he may spin like a tornado and smell like a landfill, but Taz is a fun-loving Tasmanian devil. Now, Taz and his Looney Toon pals are on the Nintendo GameCube in Taz: Wanted.

    Taz can consume sandwiches, bananas and many other power-ups. Many items that Taz can't swallow can be spit back at enemies. Several power-ups, like Hiccup Soda and Mega Hot Chili Peppers, will also help in a pinch.

    Graphics

    Taz: Wanted has a cartoony, cel-shaded look. The bold outlines and detailed animation make Taz stand out from the duller-looking enemies and objects.

    Taz: Wanted features appearances from Looney Tunes favorites, including Wile E. Coyote, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird and Sylvester. Characters have been converted from drawings to digital form faithfully, complete with a sense of humor and voiced lines when appropriate.

    Looney Tunes fans won't be able to resist Taz and all his fun disguises. Despite the bland objectives, the 3D levels in Taz: Wanted are fun to explore. Fortunately some secondary collecting tasks and two-player minigames extend the replayability of this platformer.
