This version of Taz-Mania is different from the side-scrolling versions
by Sega, in this version the player controls Taz from a third-person
perspective. The goal of the game is to travel down the road,
collecting Kiwi's before the timer runs out, avoiding obstacles along
the way. The Kiwi's will get harder to catch as the game goes on,
jumping over Taz and actually outrunning him at times.
obstacles Taz faces are trees, telephone poles, tour buses, even
pterodactyls who will bring Taz back at the beginning of the level, but
also have to avoid characters such as Axl & Bull, a pair of gators
who try to capture Taz for the zoo, The She-Devil who is in love with
Taz and if the player is caught by her, the game is instantly over and
Wendal T. Wolf, who will jump on Taz's back and cover the screen with
his hands making it hard to see.
You can avoid some obstacles by
using Taz's tornado spin, but using the spin will cause Taz's health
meter to drop, but it can be refilled by eating Kiwi's along with blue
and red birds, bushrats and items thrown to Taz by Didgeri Dingo, but
beware, he can also throw obstacles at Taz as well including T.N.T.
There is also a bonus stages after completing three levels in which you
collect as many items you can in the allotted time to raise the score.
