The uniquely original platform shooter that raised a legion of fans on the Sega Genesis and Super NES finds its way to the portable power of Nintendo's Game Boy Advance with this release of Earthworm Jim. This GBA version is based directly on the 1994 console game, but offers special mini-games and other features designed just for the handheld release. Players take the role of Jim, an otherwise ordinary earthworm who has gained special powers from a mysterious, super-high-tech spacesuit.
In the spacesuit, Earthworm Jim can run, jump, climb, and fire the suit's built-in Plasma Blaster to make short work of vicious enemies. While wearing the suit, Jim also has the ability to use his own head as a whip, or as a spinning helicopter blade to allow soft landings from long drops. With power comes responsibility, however, so Earthworm Jim is honor-bound to a quest to save the beautiful Princess-What's-Her-Name while avoiding the treachery of the foul bounty hunter Psy-Crow and his evil (and disgusting) employer, Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-Filled, Malformed, Slug-for-a-Butt. ~ T.J.
