Jazz Jackrabbit series

Group Description

Jazz Jackrabbit is a series of platform shooters designed by Cliff Bleszinski and developed by Epic MegaGames. The games have humorous undertones, featuring anthropomorphic animal characters alongside firearms and sci-fi elements. The titular character usually traverses a series of stages on his quest to defeat the antagonist, a turtle named Devon Shell.

Despite similarities to Sonic the Hedgehog series, Jazz Jackrabbit games are distinguished by their shooter mechanics. Jazz's basic weapon is a blaster with unlimited ammunition; heavier weapons such as flamethrower, freezing gun, and others can be found as well. One of Jazz's signature abilities is hovering in the air using his ears.
