Jazz Jackrabbit visits various planets to save Princess Eva Earlong and the rabbits' homeworld, Carrotus, from the megalomaniacal Devan Shell and his army of Turtle Terrorists. The eponymous hero is a bright green rabbit or hare with a red bandana, similar in appearance to (and probably in pastiche or parody of) Raphael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Although rabbits and hares are zoologically two distinct species, Jazz is referred to as either, as if they were interchangeable. (Interestingly, Chinese astrology also makes no distinction between these two and the cat.) Soundtrack The soundtrack was written by Robert A. Allen, a video game music composer who was working for Safari Software in 1994, whose games where distributed by Epic.
He has also written the soundtrack for other popular Epic MegaGames classics such as Epic Pinball. The composer of Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is Alexander Brandon. Sound system The sound system (or engine) for many of Epic's games, dubbed MASI, was written by Joshua Jensen. It was his work that made the high-quality digital soundtrack of epics early games possible. Read more on Last.fm.
