Taz is a video game released by Atari in 1983 for the Atari 2600 and features the Looney Tunes character the Tasmanian Devil in a food frenzy. Within the game, Taz only appears as a tornado.


The gameplay is simple. The player guides Taz between the stage lines in order to eat hamburgers and avoid the dynamites. The game does not use any buttons and the difficulty increases by increasing the speed of the objects on screen. As the game progresses, the burgers may change into other eatable or drinkable objects such as beer kegs, hot dogs, and so on. This game does not have many sound effects except for a blipping sound when the player hits an edible object and another sound that resembles of explosion when the player hits dynamite.


When this game was released in Europe, it featured Asterix, a popular comic book character in the region, instead of Taz.[1]
