Infogrames, Inc. Partners Up Lovable Cartoon Characters In Looney Tunes(tm): Bugs Bunny(tm) & Taz(tm) Time Busters!
America's Favorite Hare And Devil Go Back In Time On The PlayStation Game Console And PC This Fall!
LOS ANGELES, CA, May 11, 2000 - Let's do the time warp again! Infogrames, Inc. (Infogrames) officially announced today that Looney Tunes: Bugs Bunny & Taz Time Busters! is coming to the PlayStation game console and personal computer this fall. Join the whirling dervish of perpetual motion and the debonair carrot-munching hare as they team up in a wild adventure through time!
While on duty as the top pest controller for "Jet Age Pest Control," Daffy Duck(tm) accidentally breaks Granny's time regulator and is thrown back in time with the core of the machine, a precious gem. It's up to our heroes, Bugs Bunny and the Tasmanian Devil to bring back this gem and restore the time order. To do so, this unlikely pair will have to travel through five different eras and outsmart some of the toughest Looney Tunes adversaries around, like Yosemite Sam(tm), Elmer Fudd(tm), Nasty Canasta(tm), Babba Chop(tm), and Count Bloodcount(tm).
"Bringing two of America's favorite cartoon characters together in a two-player cooperative Looney Tunes(tm) adventure game will entice kids of all ages and their families," said Larry Lee, director of marketing for Infogrames. "Bugs Bunny & Taz Time Busters! offers players hours of silly cartoon antics guaranteed to tickle your funny bone!"
In the latest Looney Tunes adventure game, players will experience totally original gameplay through cooperative play - in single player mode, players can choose to be either Bugs or Taz and switch between them to conquer different obstacles, or team up with friends in two-player mode and complete the adventure together. Adding to the fun, players will lead Bugs and Taz through five exciting Looney Tunes inspired time periods to acquire the all-important gem - The Aztec Era, the Viking Era, the Arabian Nights, the Wild West, and Transylvania. In each of these eras, players will face a wide variety of challenges including sporting contests, arcade games, and a wide variety of different bosses.
Developed by Artificial Mind and Movement in Quebec, Looney Tunes: Bugs Bunny & Taz Time Busters! will reach most major retail stores this Fall.
