On each level, Taz must beat the clock and collect his allotted number of kiwi birds at the risk of losing a life. Hordes of enemies will do their best to stop Taz as he runs, jumps, and spins his way through the game. Bull Gator and Axl, in particular, are hunters after Taz's rare hide. Being the bad guys they are, these two will place glue traps, bear traps, black holes, and oil slicks throughout the levels to catch Taz and sell him to the zoo. Then, there's always the lovesick She-Devil, whose aggressive pursuit of our hero could easily end your game. Other hazards include: cars, dinosaurs, and a guy named Bushlad who shoots arrows. It's tough being a Tasmanian Devil, eh?

All the adventures of Taz-Mania take place in Tasmania, the island country that's right off the south eastern coast of Australia. There are several different kinds of terrain and climates that Taz must venture through en route to finding and seizing his luxurious snack. Not-so-deserted deserts with quicksand that will eat anything stuck inside, frozen landscapes packed with slippery ground and water that can freeze a Tasmanian Devil to death in seconds, and hyperactive jungles with steep, deadly cliffs are only a few of the places that Taz must get past in this action game.
While making your way through the various landscapes, you'll be doing a lot of jumping from platform to platform, collecting items for energy and extra lives, and so on. Of course, you can get rid of certain adversaries by jumping on top of their heads, but Taz's main nemesis-defeating tactic will be to use his whirling attack in which he literally spins so fast that he looks like a real-life tornado. There are, however, a few fun parts to experience in Taz-Mania. You'll have to ride an underground mine cart and use a switch to make the cart 'stand up', so to speak, to avoid crashing into stationary parts of the tracks that are in the way. In the ice level, you can stand on floating pieces of ice and they will instantly sink from your overbearing weight. Most of the time, this will result in your touching the below zero temperatures of the water and literally being frozen into an ice cube if you stand on it too long, but stand on one certain chunk of floating ice and you won't fall into the water. Instead, Taz will fall through a hole and instantly be underground amongst a bunch of tasty, energizing foods, and maybe even an extra life or two.
Taz will encounter several different kinds of enemies throughout his quest. Walking creatures made of stone open their mouths and try to touch Taz with their tongue; grey octopi that seem to be stranded on dry land continuously jump toward you and packs of pink jungle rats stand upright on two legs throwing spears at you as though your head were a bull's eye. After you complete a few levels, you'll come face to face with a boss, such as a Taz clone or the bushy-haired, shirtless boy that you've probably seen many times in the cartoon series.
