Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy
Since bashing the evil Buttsville Queen in a Game Boy adventure and eliminating Psycrow on the Super NES back in 1995, Earthworm Jim has enjoyed a quiet life of leisure. We tried to guess how he's been spending the last four years, but we quickly realized that some things are better left unexplained.
Unfortunately for Jim, his paid vacation time has just run out. The courageous annelid made the move to the third dimension in Earthworm Jim 3D, but it's side-scrolling platform work as usual for Jim on Game Boy Color.
In Menace 2 the Galaxy, Jim must jump and shoot his way through 12 perilous levels, including a frightening tour of Jim's own bedroom. There's not much of a storyline to get in the way, but classic Jimonian humor rears its ugly head from time to time. Speaking of which, Professor Monkey-for-a-Head is back in action as well.
Play control doesn't stand up well next to his 16-bit hits, but Jim gets around fairly well in Menace 2 the Galaxy. Colorful graphics create an appealing visual package, with detailed backgrounds and interesting enemies.
Earthworm Jim: Menace 2 the Galaxy is compatible with Game Boy Pocket and the original Game Boy as well as Game Boy Color.
