Earthworm Jim is back - in three dimensions! Forget the way you used to view this spacesuit-wearing, gun-toting invertebrate back in his days on the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Same worm, new look. Picture him now in three-dimension in Earthworm Jim 3D. Yes, the worm has indeed re-turned!
The circumstances of his return aren't exactly happy, however, as the hero is faced with one of his greatest challenges ever — a cow-induced blow to the head. Jim is forced to fight his own subconscious and conquer four main areas of his brain: Memory, Fear, Fantasy, and Happiness. Each area shows a wacky side of Jim's personality, as players take up the challenge of retrieving the crucial "Golden Udders" hidden through each level. And, since he's lost his marbles for the time being, you'll have to help him find those as well!
The adventure isn't a cakewalk and, in addition to the collection of udders and marbles, there are plenty of other dangers to face inside Earthworm Jim's head. Many side quests are required to complete the levels. Also making things difficult for Jim (and you) are a throng of enemies including chickens, freaks and monsters, all hatched in Jim's own imagination. Even the dreaded Psycrow shows up to cause trouble.
Though Earthworm Jim may be defenseless in his natural physical state, he is represented in his mind in quite a familiar fashion. You have access to his blaster, weapons, power-ups, and he wears his spacesuit. He can execute plenty of his classic moves, like the head-whip and arm rolls. As he progresses through this adventure, he also acquires new items and goodies that prove extremely useful. ~ Glenn Wigmore, All Game Guide
