Earthworm Jim is back - in three dimensions! Forget the way you used to view this space suit-wearing, gun-toting worm back in his 2D days on the Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis. Same worm, different appearance! Picture him now in glorious 3D in Earthworm Jim 3D. Yes, the worm has indeed returned!
However, the circumstances of his return aren't happy as he 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 shows you a wacky side of Jim as take up the challenge of retrieving the "Golden Udders." And, since he has lost his marbles for the time being, you must find those as well!
The adventure isn't a cakewalk and, in addition to the collection of udders and marbles, you have plenty of things to deal with inside Earthworm Jim's head such as many side quests required to complete the levels. Making things difficult for Jim (and you) are a throng of enemies including chickens, freaks and monsters that were hatched in Jim's own mind. Examples of note are Disco Zombies and Psycrow.
Even though Earthworm Jim may be defenseless in his physical state, he is represented in his mind in quite a familiar fashion. You have access to his blaster, weapons, power-ups, space suit and plenty of his classic moves like the head-whip and arm rolls! Along the way, you also acquire many items and goodies that are helpful in your overall adventure or mini-quests.
Get ready to be warped into the third dimension with the underground, dirt dweller Earthworm Jim! ~ Glenn Wigmore, All Game Guide
