The Classic Earthworm Jim!

  • Sep 4, 2000

Although the graphics are on an out-dated system (It's been almost 7 years this game has been made!), "Earthworm Jim" is still one of the best action-adventure game to date! I was very impressed with the gameplay, storyline (Even though there wasn't much of one), graphics, and originality of this game! And still catch myself playing it sometimes! And for those who have only played "Earthworm Jim 3D" (Such a bad game!!!) I strongly recomend renting this game to see how Earthworm Jim was made to be played!

Remember the show Rugrats? On the Nickelodeon network? For those who don't, let me clue you in: Rugrats was a show about what our infant children did behind our backs. The parents would be in their faces one second, affectionately mimicing those indecipherable baby sounds, but the second their backs are turned, the babies reveal their true selves. They begin plotting and scheming to do what is just normal baby stuff, and their attempts to follow through on those plans often wind up making huge messes …

Earthworm Jim is a classic moment of 90's gaming, with it's addictve run-and-gun gameplay, precision platforming, varied soundtrack, surreal humor, and weird-as-hell imagery.  If you love challenging 2D action games, this is one you gotta play if you haven't already (for those of us who don't have working SNES or Genesis consoles, you can get this on Steam, the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, or the Wii Virtual Console).

Tough and wacky platformer about a Earthworm named Jim who gets super powers from a super space suit. Tough but fun.

About this video game


Earthworm Jim is a run and gun platform video game starring an earthworm named Jim in a robotic suit who battles evil. Created by Doug TenNapel and designed by David Perry, the game was developed by Shiny Entertainment, released for the Mega Drive/Genesis in 1994, and subsequently ported to the SNES, Game Boy, Game Gear, Sega Master System, and years later, the Game Boy Advance. Upon its release it was praised for its detailed animation, polished gameplay and surreal humor; it became the first game ever to receive a 100% review in GamesMaster magazine. A special edition of the game was released for the Sega CD which features a Red Book audio soundtrack, improved graphics and expanded levels,[5] and an even further enhanced version with redrawn, 256 color graphics and an Earthworm Jim desktop theme, as well as all the Sega CD improvements, was released for Microsoft Windows 95. A planned Atari Jaguar release was cancelled. The Sega Mega Drive/Genesis version was released through Wii's Virtual Console service in Europe on October 3, 2008,[4] and in North America on October 27, 2008.[3] Gameloft released a version for the iPhone and Symbian S60 devices and has recently developed an HD version for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.
