Jersey Devil is a 3D platform game developed in Canada,[2] and released worldwide for the PlayStation and PC. Jersey Devil, the protagonist of the game, is a Jersey Devil, although he has more characteristics of a bat. His primary mission is to stop Dr. Knarf and his army of mutated vegetables and prehistoric monsters. Jersey Devil uses his punch, jumping, and gliding abilities to defeat his enemies. In many areas of the game, it is necessary to collect all five letters of Knarf's name to proceed, adding a puzzle element to the gameplay.[3]

There are six areas in the game with three levels each: two main levels, and a secret bonus level unlockable if the player's Nitro power level is high enough.


The game received mixed reviews; criticism was mainly focused on the camera and graphics.[4] A common praise given to the game was its orchestral score by Gilles Léveillé.[citation needed]
