Earth Worm Jim is one of those platform games that seems to stand the tests of time. It has been released on numerous consoles since the original SNES release, and there’s good reason for it. It has a very quirky and fun artistic style that is really unmatched in any other platform games of its day. And even today, playing it on my Nintendo 3DS with the help of my R4 3DS Card, it’s a game that I load up and play more, through emulators for the DS that let me play SNES games, than many of the new DS games that have been released. A true testament to how good this game is.
The game was originally released on the Sega Genesis (mega drive for those mates overseas ;-) ) and the SNES version was though to be somewhat inferior to that version, due to the removing of a level and some voice overs… People generally agree that the SNES version had better in game music, and graphically it was a better game on the Snes than on the Genesis. If you have an R4 DS Card, you should get the emulator and play this amazing platform game.
