[Weekly game contest] Earthworm Jim !

Earthworm Jim is a classic 2D platform game released in November of 1995 by Activision. It features classic side-scrolling fun with humor and cartoon-like graphics.

You are an earthworm named Jim. A regular earthworm turned superhero when a super cyber-suit falls from space and luckily lands on Jim. Battle with Jim through funny, challenging, and fun levels to defeat the forces of evil and rescue the princess. Use your gun to blast enemies, grab power-ups, and swing through the immersive environment. Find all of the secrets, side-paths, and find a new level only available in the PC-version of the game.

In the PC version of the game, players can use their keyboards for control or use a standard gamepad. Being a 2D scrolling platform game, I find that a gamepad is easier and more fun to use and brings black the classic platform style of play. The game also features automatic saves after each level and you can access any level that you have beaten at any time.

Humor, challenges, mini-events, interesting characters, classic 2D side-scrolling, and plenty of mini-bosses make this game a fun, must-have, entertaining game for anyone.

Jim is a regular and ordinar earthworm who did very earthworm-like things. One day, a rebel steals to the evil Psy-Crow an Ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit built by Professor Monkey-for-a-Head but has to drop it on Earth. By pure chance, the suit lands on Jim who mutes in a large, strong and intelligent (at least by earthworm standards) earthworm. He becomes then a superhero! Aware of Psy-Crow intentions, Jim sets out to rescue the princess What’s-Her-Name to impede the Queen to fulfil her devilish plan.

Guide Jim in this platform game full of humor, cross various and colored levels, fight enemies with help of your super suit and meet delirious characters such as: Bob the Killer Goldfish, Chuck and Fifi, Major Mucus or Evil the Cat… Earthworm Jim is classic run & gun game you can’t miss!
