Originally released on the Super NES, Earthworm Jim 2 sports a wildly improbable storyline driven by a cockeyed sense of humor. An accidental superhero, Jim must traverse 12 huge interplanetary levels in order to save the fair maiden Princess What's-Her-Name.
Slimy crawling enemies threaten Jim every step of the way. Fortunately, power-ups are scattered throughout the levels to replenish your health and boost your firepower. Earthworm Jim 2 is not all run-and-gun. There are absurd puzzles and crazy minigames to complete when you're not blasting aliens.
Many puzzles involve carrying, launching, or handling livestock in some way. Nothing can prepare you for the bizarre puppy-bouncing challenge, unicycle-riding maggot or the killer T-bone steak.
EWJ2 occasionally shows its age, as with a level entitled Lorenzen's Soil (a bad pun on '90s weepie movie Lorenzo's Oil). But let's face it -- Jim's Snot Swing move is always worth a laugh.
Earthworm Jim 2 is available now. Take the bait and enjoy this wacky platformer.
