Galactic Taz Ball - Taz Overworld and new screenshots revealed

Galactic Taz Ball, a new video game for the Nintendo DS™ featuring Taz, the famously frenzied Looney Tunes character. Kids can spin their way across the universe in this action-adventure game filled with interplanetary exploration, platform challenges and fun puzzles.

The game contains two worlds with completely different gameplay mechanics, including the "Overworld," an action-style 3-D game playable on the Nintendo DS top screen with track ball controls using the stylus on the bottom screen. By using the track ball, players can spin Taz into a tornado, moving him fast enough to destroy anything that gets between him and his prize.

The second world in Galactic Taz Ball is the "Underworld," a side-scrolling puzzle game in which players can control Ta by nudging, poking and pulling him and his surroundings with the stylus. Marvin the Martian's tools also found in the Underworld assist in Taz's motions, helping players pass each level. Both worlds fit perfectly with Taz's frenetic and wildly outrageous style.

Developed by Wayforward Technologies, Galactic Taz Ball is rated 3+/4+, is available on Nintendo DS and is Nintendo DSi™ compatible. Galactic Taz Ball is available at retail stores across the United Kingdom on 14 May 2010. For more information, visit
