Earthworm Jim is the Coolest Game Ever
23 September 2003 | by Discount BertSee all my reviews

Earthworm Jim is my favourite Super Nintendo game it is so cool it's hard to describe. I get such a feeling when I play or think of this game its beyond Nostalgia. Earthworm Jim was an ordinary earthworm until a supersuit fell out of the sky and transformed him with Cosmic Powers to Earthworm Jim. Now he has to save Princess What's Her Name from Queen Slug for a Butt. He travels from Junk Yards to Heck to Bungee Jumping with Major Mucas in Snot A Problem to going through underwater tubes to walking Peter Puppy and making sure he doesn't get hurt. I like this game better then the sequel and cartoon show. Just because it started it all and nothing can beat the coolness of this game
