Jazz Jackrabbit[edit | edit source]
Diamondus is a very straightforward level, owing to it being the very first level in the game, and a good area to get accostumed with the game's controls and workings. The level is filled with Turtle Goons and Bumbling Bees, which shouldn't pose much of a challenge. The second area of the stage has the first high-speed section of the game, where you pick the high-speed shoes and goes through a series of tunnels without enemies.
Once the high-speed section ends you come into a open area with various blue springboards. If you hit the first springboard and holds to the left you can find a secret passage on the wall, which leads to the first secret stage in the game. On this stage you play as a Hip Hop, with lots of Blaster ammunition to pick up and no enemies to fight besides a Turtle Goon which acts as a boss at the end.
Jazz Jackrabbit 2[edit | edit source]
Diamondus works as much as it did in the first game, but with some added hazards to contend, such as beehives which will constantly spawn Bumbling Bees. Depending on which character you're playing you'll start on a different route through the first area of the stage.
