Earthworm Jim isn’t much, but with a newly discovered cybersuit, he’s the world’s lowliest superhero. In this platform-style adventure game, based on the Sega Genesis and Super NES instalments of the series, EJ makes his way through all sorts of bizarre environments–places such as New Junk City, Intestinal Distress, and Snot a Problem–to save a princess. Along the way, he’ll add several weapons to his cybersuit and use them against level bosses such as Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-Filled, Malformed, Slug-for-a-Butt, and Professor Monkey-for-a-Head.
This is a good thing: Earthworm Jim has been lovingly ported and primed, and is now ready for action on the Game Boy Advance. The game is a fairly straightforward port of the old Super Nintendo version, but with the exclusive Sega Genesis Intestine level added for good measure. It provides weird, wicked and hilarious 2-D action that’s perfect for handheld gaming.
