Looney Tune Taz Gets DS Game

A new game has Taz trying to stop Marvin the Martian stealing Earth.

Warner Bros has announced Galactic Taz Ball, a new videogame for the Nintendo DS starring Taz, the Looney Tunes character based on our own Tasmanian Devil.

“Taz is one of the most popular characters in the Looney Tunes family, and with Galactic Taz Ball kids can have fun for hours with action, exploration, platform challenges and puzzle solving,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “This creative game packs all of the wild fun that everyone loves about Taz into a handheld experience with two unique modes of play.”

In the game, Taz is accidentally kidnapped by Marvin the Martian who’s stealing the Earth’s landscape to make Mars more scenic. Taz must spin his way across pieces of Earth floating in space to stop Marvin from destroying the planet and get back home.

The game contains two worlds with different gameplay mechanics. The “Overworld” is an action-style 3-D game playable on the Nintendo DS top screen with track ball controls using the stylus on the bottom screen. When Taz moves fast enough he becomes a tornado that can destroy objects and enemies.

The “Underworld” is a side-scrolling puzzle game played on the bottom touch screen in which Taz navigates a maze of active machinery and gadgets. Both worlds combine for a uniquely fun and frenetic journey, perfect for Taz’s wild style.
