Jazz Jackrabbit  1994

Jazz Jackrabbit is a combination of several styles of platform game. Being a rabbit, Jazz can run fast, and speed is a major component of the game, warranting instant comparison to Sonic the Hedgehog. There are a lot of items to collect, which requires extensive exploration, something that Sonic wouldn't have time for. Finally, Jazz carries a big gun and finds many different kinds of ammo. He's also a great jumper, so perhaps he's Sonic, Mario, and Duke Nukem rolled into one. The graphics and sound are excellent, and Jazz Jackrabbit is generally regarded as one of the best DOS games ever. Originally, episodes 1-3 and 4-6 could be purchased separately, and three new episodes, A-C, were added in the CD-ROM version, Jazz Jackrabbit CD. Episode X (originally released as the standalone Jazz Jackrabbit: Holiday Hare demo in 1994) was added in version 1.3. A second Episode X was released in 1995 as Jazz Jackrabbit: Holiday Hare 1995, which takes place on the planet Candion instead of Holidaius. There are 10 episodes in this game, with only two episodes playable in the shareware version.

Episode 1: Turtle Terror
Episode 2: Ballistic Bunny
Episode 3: Rabbit's Revenge
Episode 4: Gene Machine
Episode 5: The Chase Is On
Episode 6: The Final Clash
Episode A: Outta Dis World
Episode B: Turtle Soup
Episode C: Wild Wabbit
Episode X: Holiday Hare
