All Funked Up!

The Good

In Toejam and Earl you play two aliens named… Toejam and Earl who are heading home to Funkatron and when Toejam lets Earl drive they crash on Earth and you have to find your ship pieces while avoiding the Earthlings ranging from Hula girls, shopping cart ladies, fat men with lawnmower’s and the boogieman the world is random so you never play the same game twice and you can choose between Toejam or Earl or play two player you can get the humans off your back by using presents that Santa leaves each level has a elevator you have to get some levels have a ship piece when you enter said stage the game tells you there is and they spread throughout the 25 stages.

The graphics are pretty good with a far out view which lets you see alot of the environment and what enemies are near you can also purchase presents from mailboxes scattered though the levels but some are really mailbox monsters so watch out!

The Bad

With the lack of the ability to save it makes getting through the 25 stages cumbersome in one sitting specially since there is a annoying “enemy” a tornado which can throw you down to the next level which can be tedious to go back up just to fall again.

The Bottom Line

While this game is now hard to find it is worth the time looking for it as it is a highly enjoyable Genesis title with game like this its no wonder the Genesis won the console wars.
