The main character
of the Jazz Jackrabbit
series, that was
created by Orange Games
and Epic Megagames
The series exists out of 5 commercial products:
Jazz Jackrabbit 1 - Created by epic megagames, won the PC Format Arcade Game of the Year 1994 award.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 - It's sequel, using a eight-layer parrellax engine. It's internet-enabled, and by many considered one of the best platform games around. Spaz jackrabbit was introduced here.
Quote from Jazz2Online:
"In an industry increasingly dominated by blood, gratuitous nudity and violence, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is a breath of fresh air for the computer-game-playing family.
Jazz 2 was designed from the ground up to be enjoyed by anyone from age
six to adult. Its fascinating worlds, vibrant colors, and smooth animation
make for a joyously thrilling experience. Jazz 2 proves that the rumors of the
platform game genre's demise are greatly exaggerated."
Jazz Jackrabbit 2: HH98 - Christmas special for Jazz Jackrabbit.
Enemies are wearing christmas clothing and there is one new tileset included. Acts like the shareware version.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2: TSF - Add-on for Jazz jackrabbit, featuring 25 levels designed by fans, 3 new tilesets. It also introduces Lori jackrabbit, a new playable character.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2: CC - Only released in Holland and Poland, because Project2 went bankrupt. European version of HH98. Not a shareware version this time. It also includes lori jackrabbit and some fan-designed levels,
taken from a easter contest.
Jazz Jackrabbit 3: An abandoned project. World tree games started to work (without fund) on this sequel, using the unreal engine. Because they could not find a publisher that would want to fund the unreal engine for their project, they quit.
God games and Project II were publishers from Jazz jackrabbit 2, but Project 2 went bankrupt(their sales for Jazzjackrabbit 2 were good though) and God Games did not want to fund Jazz Jackrabbit 3 because they lost money on Jazz Jackrabbit 2)

Project III, a new company that continues the product line of bankrupt Project 2, has considered sponsoring Jazz Jackrabbit 3. Orange games has considered making a sequel. A Jazz Jackrabbit 3 logo, quite possibly genuine, has been circulating. Some hints have been dropped.
