Jazz Jackrabbit 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. OpenJazz is a free, open-source version of the classic Jazz Jackrabbit games. OpenJazz can be compiled on a wide range of operating systems, including Linux. To play, you will need the files from one of the original games.
Works okay, but the controls are not quite like I remember them and seem to "stick" somehow. This has a detrimental effect on the whole gameplay. Other than that, it seems stable enough.
