...why is it in the "Popular Games' Forum"?

Man, the 90s were an odd time for platformers.

It's part of a quest; also, Jazz Jackrabbit was great =D

I only ever played jazz jackrabbit 2, it was fun

Wow, I haven't thought of Jazz Jackrabbit in years. Completely forgot about it. It was an odd time in PC gaming. Lots of stuff shuffled around as shareware demos, etc. Lots of odd platformers here and there. Memories.

Yeah, as stated It's cause it's part of the current community quest

I imagine it has something to do with Gears of War 3.

Anyway, I played the shareware Jazz Jackrabbit a lot as a kid, but I was never that crazy about it. I think the Apogee platformers of the era (Duke Nukem, BioMenace) were a bit better.

Ya this game was pretty great. I think you can still buy it from Epic on some store hidden somewhere. They had Dare 2 Dream on there too.

Wish my floppies for these still worked.

Edit: I found the site, but I dont recommend going there. They way over charge for them. Which is ridiculous as its the only LEGIT site to get them from. And they dont even offer them as downloads, you have to print the form and mail it in.

Wow I had completely forgotten about jazz jackrabbit. Talk about a blast from the past.

I loved playing this game back in the day! I only had the shareware versions, but it was still pretty sweet. I even remember playing a few online two player games also.

Oh the memories of this game downloaded on my grandparents 1998 desktop computer. It finally died in 2004. I played the hell out of this game at their house along with a space shooter called Tyrian.

Because it's Jazz Jack-motherfucking-rabbit, that's why.

#17 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

#18 Posted by ShockD (2393 posts) -

I came to this thread indeed because it was on the Popular Games board. And yeah, the game's great.

Maaaan that game was rad. Cmon Cliffy, re-release it please.

#21 Posted by babblinmule (1262 posts) -

I demand an XBLA / PSN re-release of this! Played so much of it when i was younger.

#22 Posted by Ghostin (369 posts) -

This is one of those games i'm scared to re-install incase it doesn't hold up.  Good childhood memories of this game.

I remember loaning my copy of Jazz to a friend. When he returned it, he told my mom that it was a 'bad' game, which got me in a lot of trouble until I explained to my mom that 'bad' meant 'good'. Wow, that was a long time ago. What was it, 1994? 1995?

takes me back to the apogee days (pretty sure it was apogee i remember blakestone, wold3d, wacky wheels? correct me if im wrong)

none the less great game. deserves more credit

Kids be playing Gears of War .... I had me Jazz Jackrabbit. Come on Cliffy I dare you to reboot Jazz. Could you imagine how that would go down with these blood crazed toddlers? They would probably crap down your freshly torn neck hole for even suggesting it.

Send babies to Iraq with parachutes and grenades. Fuck yeah.
