The First Five Furry Minutes Of Jazz Jackrabbit

The First Five Furry Minutes Of Jazz Jackrabbit

In honour of the tattoo on my right forearm and the celebration of Easter, I present you with a green rabbit with a gun. Makes sense to me.

Jazz Jackrabbit is a 1994 PC game coded by Arjan Brussee and designed by Cliff Bleszinski for Epic MegaGames. It’s a platform shooter, combining the fast-paced movement of Sonic the Hedgehog with the shooting of Shooty McShooterson’s All-Star Shooting Shootacular. The game, distributed via ye olde shareware (first one’s free) kickstarted Bleszinski’s career, enabling him to spend too much money on the old school Transformers I should rightfully have. Also Gears of War.

Hey look, box art (via MobyGames)!

Want to play it yourself? I found it over at RGB Classic Games, playable right in my browser.

The First Five is the first five minutes of a game with light commentary. Once the five minutes are up, so are we.


  • Jazz jack rabbit was one of my first and favourite games I wish steam would release more ms-dos games, this along with jill of the jungle and commander keen were among my first video games

  • One of my favourites. I played 2 more than the first and the multi player in that was great.

  • This, and Sonic the Hedgehog were my first games on the PC, was playing them from the age of 3, I feel more nostalgic towards Jazz Jackrabbit though, good times.

  • Nice one! I remember getting so close to finish this game when i was a kid, so many good memories! Please take note and release it GOG!!!! (along with it’s various expansion packs/ Jazz 2 k thanks)

  • Great game, many great expansions, including a Christmas one that I think was free. I remember it being such a beautiful game, sti looks pretty good.
