Game Gear Longplay [122] Taz-Mania: The Search for the Lost Seabirds


Played by: Reinc

Taz Mania: The Search for the Lost Seabirds is a 2D side-scrolling platform video game developed by NuFX and published by Sega on the Sega Game Gear in 1992.

Players control Taz as he searches for a giant egg. Taz is able to jump, spin into a tornado and eat various objects. Spinning into a tornado allows Taz to defeat most enemies, as well as gain extra jump distance, knock away items and get past certain obstacles unharmed, it also gives him a speed boost. In this version, spinning depletes Tazs life bar.

This game is awful. The levels are hardly related to each other at all and are basically a compilation of mini-games with different gameplay in most levels. The music sounds like something you would hear in a blatant spoof on a bad video game, except this is for real. The game lags like hell, and with different amounts of lag on different levels. Its so bad, even being a Chinese bootleg would not have been an excuse, but no, this is a licensed game.

    I remember having this growing up, and somehow managing to beat it. Music is still in my opinion some of the worst recorded.

    How did you even play this game, In never got past the part where the boulder chases you as I did not know how the controls worked.

    This had to be the most god awful game music ever created. Now I know what a seizure sounds like.

    Even as the technology stood at the time, you'd think they would have at least done a credible instrumental version of Bruce Broughton's theme.

    And here, I thought the Genesis Taz-Mania was bad, but the Game Gear did worst, especially with the lag and awful music.  And Warner Bros. was okay with this game as is?

    This is really very poor.

    I had this game as a child and I don't think I ever made it past the third stage. People like to talk about bad game design but this game really has it in droves, right up to the last stage.
