Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time is a Looney Tunes platform video game for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation, released in 1999. An indirect sequel, Bugs Bunny and Taz: Time Busters, was produced for the same consoles a year later.

Plot[edit]

The game stars popular cartoon character Bugs Bunny who finds and activates a time machine after taking a wrong turn at Albuquerque. He ends up in Nowhere, home of a sorcerer named Merlin Munroe ("Moyle" to Bugs, or "Merl" but in Bugs accent). Merlin then informs Bugs that he is lost in time and that he must travel through five different eras of time (spanning 21 levels in total) in order to collect clock symbols and golden carrots that will allow him to return to the present.

Gameplay[edit]

The object of the game is to collect time clocks to progress through different eras via a time machine. Bugs must utilize his unique abilities to solve puzzles and defeat various enemies throughout the levels. At the end of era, Bugs must confront and defeat a boss character to unlock the next era.
