Buy Jazz

You can buy Good Old Games's Jazz Jackrabbit collection to get Jazz 1.3 and Holiday Hare '95. See version differences between 1.0, good/bad 1.2, and 1.3.

Quirk: Difficulty-based ammo

In Dreempipes 2, after the fast-feet ascent with switches, but before the 3 stacked yellow pipes through which you can run, there is a pyramid of grey solid blocks.

On Turbo difficulty, 3 launcher containers sit on on the right side of that pyramid. On Medium, no launchers sit here.

I tested this in both the 1.0 and the good 1.2; it should be the same across all releases.
