Now Jim must make it to Princess What's-Her-Name by staying clear of Psy-Crow, the intergalactic bounty hunter, until the final battle with Queen Slug-for-a-Butt.

CD-ROM Today, May 1996

"The world's first annelid superhero made a splash when introduced for the Sega Genesis and Super NES more than two years ago. Earthworm Jim became known for its superb animation, bizarre collection of characters, and smashing play.

"Now, the game has been ported to Windows 95. Don't let the new packaging fool you - the box brags about features not available in the cartridge version. However, the CD-ROM version is nearly identical to Earthworm Jim: The Special Edition, released a year ago for Sega CD. The only 'bonus' in this version is it includes a Windows 95 Theme Pack for use with Microsoft Plus! to add Earthworm Jim wallpaper, icons, and sounds to your desktop setup."

"One quirk: You must play the game in a default 320x224 resolution window (not coincidentally, the same resolution a Sega Genesis runs under). It's possible to double the window, but that can slow performance. If your video card is fast enough to provide a high-res desktop, it can probably handle Earthworm Jim with ease.

"In its newest form, this fast-paced, funny action game keeps every crow, cow, and disgusting bodily fluid of the original intact. It's truly hard to resist."
