This is the most recent version of JJ2+! This release largely serves as an update to the previous download, which means that it brings all the awesome...
Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is the long awaited sequel to the most popular DOS shareware platformer game of 1994! Play as Jazz or his little brother Spaz on the quest to rescue Eva Furlong!
With a fully featured level editor and third party editing utilities for this game, it is definitely one of the earliest moddable platform games for the PC.
The latest and greatest major Jazz Jackrabbit 2 Plus release! October 2013 brings with it lots of great improvements to JJ2, including the ability to aim bullets using the mouse cursor and change weapons with the mouse wheel; brand new textured background modes, with fifteen predrawn background textures that can be easily plugged into any level using any tileset; access to redefining object behaviors and HUD elements for script-writers; a modestly improved online spectator mode; a new harder-than-hard difficulty mode for single player games; and lots and lots more! Besides all that, JJ2+ now has two awesome, Plus-exclusive splash screens drawn by our awesome community members!
This is also a great update for bug fixing, both in our own code and of so many long-standing native JJ2 bugs that we're pretty sure we fixed some bugs nobody had even ever known existed! Just as a sample, ammo pickups, bouncer bullets, and other objects are now better synced among clients online; buttstomping enemies doesn't remove your invincibility; falling off swinging platforms is now much less likely; fastfire and ammo pickups and blaster powerups are drawn using the correct sprite for whichever player is viewing them; muting other online players now successfully mutes messages sent using the "/me" command; and again, lots and lots more.
