Press Release:

    Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 The Galaxy Lands On Earth

    Crave Entertainment's Newest Title on Game Boy Color Ships To Retail

    Los Angeles, CA- December 7, 1999 - Earthworm Jim, the galaxy's mightiest, super-suit clad, invertebrate hero is back for more crazy adventures, this time on Game Boy Color. Crave Entertainment blasts Earthworm Jim(tm): Menace 2 The Galaxy onto store shelves everywhere.

    "Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy on Game Boy Color is packed with features, including a Game Boy Color exclusive level," stated Holly Newman, Executive Vice President of Publishing. "The game also fully utilizes Game Boy Color's unique 56-color mode, and it includes all the amusing features that have made Earthworm Jim such a great franchise."

    In this edition, Earthworm Jim must recover the Inter-Dimensional-Transporter-of-Doom that Evil Jim has stolen from Professor Monkey-for-a-Head. If he doesn't find the weapon quickly, Evil Jim will sell it to the highest bidder and the galaxy will be doomed.

    Getting back the weapon won't be easy, as Earthworm Jim has to zap his way through 12 huge levels. Spooky graveyards, jungles with worm-eating plants, candy stores and even Earthworm Jim's own bedroom will challenge our brave worm in his mission to save the galaxy.

    Luckily our clever hero has an arsenal of cool weapons at his disposal. A Blaster, a really Big Blaster, a Plasma Blaster and the Rocket Launcher help our champion fight his way to victory. If these fail he can always beckon "Snott," the Gooey Glob that lives in his backpack, or use his unique Pocket Rocket to fly away.

    And flyaway he might, after coming across such wacky creatures as pestering aliens, twisted teddy bears, zombie chickens and mutant sheep. They all get in Earthworm Jim's way and deter him from his duty to find his nemesis and save the cosmos.

    Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy for Game Boy Color retails for $29.95 and is backwards compatible with any Game Boy Including original Game Boy, Pocket Game Boy and Super Game Boy.
