Picture the scene. You are feeling frisky and in a flirtatious mood. It's a beautiful day in Tazmania and you're fooling around with your favourite She-Devil. Paradise, until the skies cloud over, as if the sun's rays have been blocked out by an oversized stetson. Oh dear, trouble is coming. Trouble with a big moustache and a deafening voice...

Big-hatted sheriff Yosemite Sam captures Taz and puts him on show at his Zoo in Sam Francisco (ha!). Taz, rightly miffed about being caged, Taz literally gets in a spin and escapes his confinement to become a wanted man. That's what it says on the posters dotted throughout each level, posters which Taz must destroy whilst avoiding the uniformed Taz-catchers. Fortunately for Taz, there are many ACME items to find throughout the various worlds, which provide him with plenty of power-ups. The levels in Taz: Wanted have a free-roaming architecture, which allow Taz to explore every corner of the game. Take into account that there are four huge worlds to investigate and you have an idea of the possibilities open to you. Taz: Wanted is a big, big game.

Looney Tunes cartoons are well known for making grown men laugh like drains, while younger viewers find the fact that these characters reduce supposedly sensible people to quivering wrecks funny in itself. It's this cross-generational appeal that keeps us all coming back for more Looney Tunes-inspired mayhem, and Taz: Wanted is full of characters we know and love. Cartoon fans and platform/puzzle lovers alike will want a piece of this action.
