    Earthworm is a fresh new concept for the action adventure gaming. Think of this game more as a blend of Contra and Super Mario world. The game's star, is a Earthworm, and his moves are pretty much deals with his body..... Read Full Review

    Over-rated big time.

    Ahh the game gear, the rich man's gameboy....hence it fading out. Earthworm Jim was so highly regarded in Gamepro magazine and other outlets that I felt like I had to get this. But, like many other platformers of the ... Read Full Review

    An instant classic but short for an Earthworm to do.

    Back in 1994 there was a rather odd game called Earthworm Jim that was released for the Sega Megadrive and the Super Nintendo and there was a lot of cartoon humour in it. This however one of the funniest games I've ev... Read Full Review

    One of the best platformers ever

    Earthworm Jim is a true classic. The gameplay is as varied and intense as it is difficult. The humour is laugh out loud funny and the music is typically brilliant for an old-skool Sega game. As Jim you have at your di... Read Full Review

    An innovative and bizzare adventure across the galaxy with the worlds strangest super hero.

    Earthworm Jim is an artistically brilliant game with a lot of style, sharp control, and great level design and variety. EWJ was an ordinary earthworm until an experimental cybernetic suit fell on him from space, thus... Read Full Review

    A snappy title with plenty of character.

    This was one of the first games I played that was like watching a cartoon. And thats not because of cel-shading or advance graphics. The reason was because of how well animated the game was. Every little move Earthwor... Read Full Review

    Earthworm Jim was an enjoyable platformer during the 16-Bit era.The gameplay felt very smooth and natural.Jim could cling to ledges and he wore a special suit(that has muscular arms and legs)that allows him to use a mach... Read Full Review
