User Rating: 10 | ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron GEN
When it comes to the 16-bit battle between Sega and Nintendo, everyone knew that the Super NES had a lot of ammo in terms of video game characters to put into video games. There was Mario, Link, Star Fox, Donkey Kong, Final Fantasy, Samus, Yoshi, Mega Man, Street Fighter, and many other exclusive games too numerous to mention! Most people know of the Sega Genesis as only having Sonic...and maybe Ecco the Dolphin and James Pond if they're lucky. But two of the most sorely overlooked video game characters in the Genesis library, have got to be the funky, groovy aliens, known as Toejam and Earl. On the Genesis, they had two jamming video games. And although a lot of people will prop up the original as being superior, I actually like the sequel better, because I actually managed to beat, the difficulty level wasn't as severe, the controls were a lot easier to handle and master, the graphic design system was a lot more artistic and varied, and there was much more variety in terms of music and sound! :D The story is simple enough, after Toejam and Earl return to their home planet of Funkotron, they found out that a bunch of Earthlings stow away on their ship! So it is now their duty to capture all the Earthlings into jars (you just got to love the off-beat humor) and bring the funk back to Funkotron by bringing the Funkopotamus back out of hiding! :lol: Even though there are many things that are collectible and many different types of challenges in terms of the different types of Earthlings needed to be caught, the difficulty is never overwhelming and the puzzle level difficulty goes up quite gradually. This game is a lot of fun, and for only 800 Wii Virtual Console points, the price can't be beat! :idea: I highly enjoyed this game, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a rocking good time! 8) Enough said, true believers! ;)
