We got a pot luck of items this week, from an installment from the Sonic series coming back, an obscure game inspired by a manga coming to the 3DS, an anticipated piece of DLC, and more in this mixed bag of news this week.
When I think oldschool Epic Games, the first thing that comes to mind naturally is Unreal Tournament. Originally I was going to tie the the composer, Alexander Brandon to Jazz Jackrabbit’s music, but I would have been mistaken. From what I researched, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 is credited to Brandon, but the first is to a guy named Robert A. Allan. Regardless, the soundtracks to both games kick ass, but I’m here to talk about Jazz Jackrabbit.
For those of you who don’t know, Jazz Jackrabbit is a PC platformer developed in 1994. Many elements are borrowed from Sonic the Hedgehog, with the inclusion of a gun and various types of ammo to the mix (long before Shadow would infamously bring guns to the Sonic universe might I add).
The first sign of really good music occurs quite early actually, when you get to the second area, Tubelectric.
