Description of Jazz Jackrabbit for GBA

Advertisement
Jazz Jackrabbit is a platform game. Gameplay mechanics in Jazz are very similar to Sonic the Hedgehog's, with the exception of not being able to destroy the enemies by simply jumping at them (which was not added until the second game). Jazz will run faster and jump higher the longer he runs, avoiding chasms that might lead to spikes or other unwanted objects. Unlike other arcade games, however, there are no abysses and every level bifurcates into subsections that might lead to valuable items (such as weapon pick-ups, score items, etc.) while the direction of general progression is hinted at with occasional arrows. Jazz has a life bar that changes in color based on how much health Jazz has remaining. Jazz can withstand a limited number of hits (5 on Easy mode, 4 on Medium mode, 3 on Hard or Turbo mode) from projectiles or spiked structures before losing a life; one hit's worth of health can be restored by picking up a carrot. Lives can also be accumulated to the maximum number of ten. When killed, Jazz can start further than the level beginning if a checkpoint sign was reached and activated (i.e. shot) before.
