Description of Jazz Jackrabbit

One of the best platformers to grace your PC screen, Jazz Jackrabbit was a very successful platformer by shareware standards, released by Epic Megagames in 1993 and spawned a number of well-received sequels.

Similar in style to Earthworm Jim but released years ahead of that classic, Jazz Jackrabbit features a lovable cartoon protagonist, 4-button joystick support, well-designed levels, excellent graphics, and funny animated sequences. As Jazz the cool rabbit hero, you will travel from planet to planet to reach a villainous alien turtle who is bent on world destruction. While the game's vast levels, secret areas, and inventive power-ups already add up to an addictive game, to me the best part about Jazz are the bonus levels which are all presented in full 3D, in contrast to the 2D sidescrolling view. These 3D levels make you race headlong through a racetrack within a given time limit to amass bonus points. Attractive cartoony graphics and a great sense of humor make Jazz Jackrabbit arguably the most charming platform superhero... until Earthworm Jim showed up on the scene. Highly recommended, and be sure to also check out the game's sequels on this site.

This is the Floppy Disk *FULL VERSION* of the game. It consists of 6 Episodes and has the original intro.

It works fine in DOSBox, but likely not by just accessing the jazz.exe file normally. Unless you have an old IBM 386/486DX PC from the 1990s running DOS or Windows 98 & older.

Everyone who is unable to jump:
You need to select SETUP OPTIONS from the main menu, and then CHANGE KEYS. Then, you can change your controls to your liking or simply just select LOAD DEFAULT KEYS.

You could also delete the Jazz.ini if you really want to.

The game used to work with my DOSbox but now no longer does. It says either files missing or Illegal command.

Good game. Kind of a Sonic clone. It was OK but I preferred other platformers such as Hocus Pocus and Xargon.

Rubberknife 2014-01-13 -1 point DOS version

my childhood's dream

copy 2013-08-16 0 point DOS version

i used to over play this game as a kid back in '98 it was apart of a multigame disc that had classics as well as this game, and this was by far my fav of the disc, brought it everywhere, before the disc got scratched so bad that it only worked when it wanted, then my brother snapped the disc and threw it away when he was mad. and yes, i cried over that game, and thus my gaming spirit was born.

These are DOS-Files, not Windows... Use DOSBox to run the game. There are plenty of tutorials on the Internet.
