The core of gameplay is defined by the rules below:
Data Island is the third in a series of four promotional tie-in games for a Taco Bell campaign revolving around a Taco Bell marketing brand called Spy-Tek. The objective of this game is to use one of the four Tek Kids to thwart an evil villain named Dr. Havok who has built a massive supercomputer -- roughly the size of an island -- and plans to use it to conquer all the world's computer systems and, by extension, the entire world.
The player chooses from among the four Tek Kids to handle the perilous Data Island cyber-mission. The gameplay consists of piloting a small jet craft through a virtual-looking landscape with the enormous Data Island looming in the background. Dodge enemies and collect power-ups along the way. The enemies include giant spiders and spiked mines. Power-ups include 2 different types of weapons, fuel for your pod, and Taco Bell logos which restore your overall health meter. There are also warps that give your pod an incredible speed boost (but the warps do not grant invincibility, so you still need to dodge enemies).
Another feature of the game allows the player to create a custom desktop wallpaper by combining various Tek Kids against backgrounds chosen from the various Flash Ops games, along with a Taco Bell "Think Outside The Bun" logo in a customizable position. [source:mobygames]
