View Full Version : Since Jazz is coming to GBA: Why not predict how it will play
October 7th, 2002, 07:04 PM
NO! THIS IS NOT JUST ANOTHER JAZZ GBA POST: THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT! If you feel it needs to be in General Jazz Talk, just move it- please do not deleate it.
It's official: Jazz on GBA- chance of comeback- all that really cool stuff- onslaught of newbies.
Anyway, I went down town to check when it will be releaced. I could not find a date, so it looks like we might have a while to wait.
So I thought it would be fun to take a guess as to what kind of things the game will have in it BEFORE it comes out!
Based on what we know so far, give your ideas on what the plot will be... or what new nogoodnics will be wedged between our hero hare and victory... Then, when the game is out, lets all play it and see which of us made close-to-accurate guesses. WINNER GETS 500 PIE POINTS!!!
If anything- it's a better way to pass the time then just twiddling our thumbs.

I think that it will honestly be an OK port. I don't think that it will win too many awards, but I think that it will be better than many have expeceted. I dobut that it will become a saviour of the Jazz 2 community or anything, but I think that it will be good more than bad. I hope it will retain the classic Jazz 2 gameplay, but something may be lost in the trasition to console. We'll just have to wait and see.

It will support multiplayer, up to four people, and have a single player cart mode as well. It will involve a green rabbit, a turtle, and several other things that I probably shouldn't mention.

Will this game bring Boggy B back to Jazz Jackrabbit?
Take a gander at the first screens of the game down below -- we'll have a hands-on play test of the new Jazz Jackrabbit in the coming months. Jaleco has the GBA game scheduled for Q4 of this year, which may put it in your hands as early as this Christmas.

I think it plays alot like Jazz2, not 1. From the artwork, you can see a picture of Jazz using his chopper-ears move like the one in Jazz2..so it will probably be alot like Jazz2, and maybe SOME elements from 1. I hope they will put in alot of decent multiplayer levels, as well as alot of single player levels. And of, course, <strike>they should put in ME as a secret character</strike> it need's to be fun.

It also uses the d**m tileset.

I really have no idea what the plot is goin to be, but my guess is that it'll be sometime after the end of TSF and before when JJ3 was supposed to be.

And Castle, and Colonius.

I think that this game will be more like Jazz Jackrabbit 2 than most people have expected. First of all, it obviously uses several tilesets from Jazz 2, and may use more that we haven't seen screenshots of. I honestly think that this will be a sort of blur between Jazz 1 and Jazz 2 (think Jazz 1 playing style with Jazz 2 environments)? I dobut this game will win many awards, but I don't think we should underestimate it. After all, isn't this the game that we've been hoping will happen for a long time? To a certain extent, beggars can't be chosers, though I still hate that Jazz looks like some bad Star Wars ripoff.

JJ2 better not have Gift Directions. Oh god, maybe Gift-Directions are the end bosses? I can see it all now! Gift-Directions have enslaved all the rabbits and are using them as their own little army. Only one rabbit can save the universe... *dun dun dun* Jeff K Jackrabbit! Go, JKJ! Destroy those Gift-Directions!

umm... what are these "Gift-Directions" of which you speak? I know of no "Gift-Directions".
Seriously: What exactly is a Gift-Direction?

Hmmmm. It kind of reminds me of Abuse. With all the different wepons and all. Like for example the rocket launcher. That really reminds me of Abuse. Looks less sonic (like the first Jazz did) and more blowing turtles heads off type thing. Well you probably wont be able to blow turtles heads off :( So yeah I seem to think it will play like Abuse (without the whole aiming thing). Well I probably will never even play it (don't have a GBA). Oh and Jazz's new look gets five :mad: 's out of five!

Someone else has actually heard of Abuse?! *runs over and shakes SFD's hand heartily*
Now that that's done, I'm going to sleep. :o.zzZ

Well of course. I use to play the Abuse demo all the time. Now this year my brother found the full version on a disk that came with a Computer Mag. I under stand that its open source now. Crack Dot Com (the company that made Abuse) just completely shut down after they made Abuse. I read there history explaing there death. To bad :confused:
