What is JJ2+?
JJ2+ is a massive mod of Epic Games' 1998 masterpiece Jazz Jackrabbit 2 (JJ2), adding countless features and bug fixes to both Single Player and Multiplayer gameplay. One way to think of JJ2+ is as a series of tools built into various parts of the game to give you and other users more ways of creating new Jazzy experiences for yourselves. You can read the general documentation for more information.
