OpenJazz is a free, open-source version of the classic Jazz Jackrabbitâ„¢ games.
Jazz Jackrabbitâ„¢ is a PC platform game. Produced by Epic Games (then Epic MegaGames), it was first released in 1994. The fast-paced, colourful gameplay proved popular, and the game won PC Format's Arcade Game of the Year award. Many people still fondly recall the shareware versions.
With the demise of DOS-based operating systems, it has become necessary to use emulators to play old DOS games. Jazz Jackrabbitâ„¢ deserves more - and would benefit greatly from new features.
To play, you will need the files from one of the original games. Current releases of `game-data-packager' are able to generate a suitable data package from the Jazz Jackrabbit Collection as published on GOG.
