Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski once made video games about green rabbits fighting turtles, a series known as Jazz Jackrabbit. Epic Games' former mascot returns after a long hiatus, only this time as a proof-of-concept twin-stick shooter.

The latest version of Epic's Unreal Engine development kit has been released, adding support for iOS devices‚ÄĒrecently used in Infinity Blade and Epic Citadel‚ÄĒand featuring a development tutorial built around a Jazz Jackrabbit shooter for the iPhone. Unless you plan on downloading and developing with the UDK on your iOS device of choice, this Jazz Jackrabbit game won't mean much to you.

But if you're interested to see what a modern day, Epic Games-built, anthropomorphic rabbit mascot game looks like, here's your chance.
