Who remembers Jazz Jackrabbit 2?
That mythical game was released in 1998, featuring its green rabbit, Jazz, sneaking through levels filled with villains to save his beloved Eva.
Well, my friends, get ready to relive the nostalgia because I’ve discovered an absolutely fantastic project called Jazz² Resurrection!
The Jazz² Resurrection project is a reimplementation of the original game, supporting different versions and even some features of the JJ2+ and MLLE expansion. If that doesn’t make you want to pull out your old controllers, I don’t know what will!
To play, it is necessary to download the software via the Jazz² Resurrection website (available for Windows, Linux, macOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, Web, and Xbox) and then copy the contents of the original Jazz Jackrabbit 2 game directory. If you don’t have it, don’t stress; it comes with the game demo.
One of the things I love about Jazz² Resurrection is that it supports modern browsers. Yes, you read that right: you’ll be able to play Jazz Jackrabbit 2 directly in your browser, without any additional installation by clicking here!
The project is licensed under the GNU General Public License v3.0. This means that you can edit and share it as you see fit, as long as you abide by the terms of the license.
It really is a fantastic opportunity to relive the good old days with Jazz and his band while enjoying the flexibility and compatibility of modern technologies.
Come on, I’ll leave you; I’m going to face some terrorist turtles myself to save my sweetheart Eva.
