Jim is a friendly earthworm that occasionally find a ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit built and lost by Professor Monkey-For-A-Head. When Jim saw the suit, he managed to land within the collar, and it ended up mutating him into a new and fantastic Super Earthworm.
That's the beginning of a funny and hooking story where you'll control Earthworm Jim and do the attractive movements offered by the game, such as use the head (actually the whole body of the earthworm) as a whip or fire all kind of weapons. Wearing this fantastic suit, our bizarre hero will try to make his way throughout different and extravagant worlds to save the Princess What's-Her-Name.
Earthworm Jim was a great success due to the use of a surrealist humor and very carefully designed environment and movements. With no doubt, Earthworm Jim is one of the best platform games in history.
