Jazz Jackrabbit (MS-DOS)
At least I can be sure that a bright green anthropomorphic rabbit in a Batman costume is probably the weirdest thing I'll see all day.
I guess the artist was a big fan of DC comics.
Also isn't it supposed to be the tortoise vs the hare?
The characters are pretty well animated though, especially Jazz himself who starts imitating Bugs Bunny if you leave him long enough.
But unlike them I've got a health bar and a gun, so it all works out.
I used 'L' for one of my keys, but every time I press it I get the Load Game menu instead. And I can't seem to fix it without quitting to the main menu.
Weirdly that turtle over there seems to be completely harmless. I feel bad when I accidentally blast one of them, but it's really entirely their fault for standing in my way when I'm pulling the trigger.
So here I am again. Replaying this level from the start.
These spark enemies are like the ghosts in the Mario games, the only move towards you when you're not looking.
Oh wait, this guy's on my side! He's flying around giving me air support. Helpful flying allies are way better to have around than annoying flying enemies. Shame he doesn't stick around for long.
Fortunately I've got a nice solid wall for cover, so I'm feeling pretty good about my chances.
"Sorry I took so long coming to your rescue, but on the way here I noticed there was a planet covered in signs claiming that rabbits stink, so I had to stop by and steal all their floppy disks."
