Informazioni sul gioco

Jim wasn't always a studly super-worm. He was once just a spineless, dirt-eater with no real mission in his life...

But then something unexpected happened. The evil Psy-Crow was transporting a super suit, built by the genius Professor Monkey-For-A-Head, to Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-Filled, Malformed, Slug-For-A-Butt, but along the way it was stolen by a rebel. Although Psy-Crow killed the rebel, the suit fell down to Earth, landing on an Earth Worm. That cosmic twist of fate placed Jim in control of an ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit.

Anyway, Earthworm Jim found out that Princess What's-Her-Name had been captured and set out to save her. Meanwhile, there's a bounty on Jimmy and plenty of people are in line to take Queen Slug-For-A-Butt up on her offer.

Now Jim must make it to the princess and stay clear of Psy-Crow, the intergalactic bounty hunter, until the final battle with Queen Slug-For-A-Butt. To accomplish this, you'll have to use every weapon and ability at your disposal to wriggle your way through dozens of original and just plain weird levels.

I bought this Collection a long time ago before the though of refunds even be a thing,this trilogy is a compilation from the worst EWJ ports for PC.
The first 2 games are butchered and lack the most basic levels that appear on every single version on the consols (including some of them that are on the pics show case leading to false advertisement) and uses an "outdated" DOSBOX emulation to play .
And the third game is just the cherry on the bitter cake since it universally sucked on both platforms that released.
If you want a modern port to EWJ look for EWJ HD on 360 or PS3 or just look for that Special Edition released on Windows 95/Sega CD that is better than this "thing",

This game may have some flaws with the whole DOSbox ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t, with it being in a small window, but overall, a nice port with a great enchanced soundtrack. 6/10

Earthworm Jim Review:

I'll first of all start by saying this is the MSDOS version so it runs on DOSBOX and I can't find any source ports for it.

I hate how Steam shows the screenshots because the screenshots seem to have been taken using the Mega Drive/Genesis release because in the DOS version the picture of the gun on the ammo count is different from the one in the screenshots and they shown the Intestinal Distress level which isn't in the DOS version.

But overall I call this version Average it is a good version but if you are an Earthworm Jim Newbie I suggest getting the Sega Mega CD/Sega CD or Windows 95 versions.

I would take the Mega CD or Windows 95 version over this anyday but let's face it it isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be.

Overall if you are new I wouldn't get this version but it is still ok.



5/10






GROOVY!!!!

Plays in dosbox, a small little box that takes up about 10% of the screen. I was able to get an x-box 360 controller to work to an extent with this game, but there are broken areas in this port. Green orbs are broken as are the rails in the 3rd level.

Um, why are there so many bad reviews?

This might just be a regular dosbox port of the dos version, but the dos version was probably the best aside from the Super ninteno and the Sega genesis versions.
Normally, with fps games, I canNOT STAND DOSBOX. they have the absolute worse performace and quality and if you change the resolutions to anything higher than something really low, they make the game run at terrible perfomace.

But with this game, that's not the case. It's the exact same dos version. Game runs surprisingly smooth and fluid, controls are easy and responsive, graphics and animations look great.

As for the actual game, this should be a no brainer. I have yet to ever meet someone that dislikes this game. if they havent heard of it, I show them it and they become instantly hooked. Simple, fun, addictive gameplay. Platforming 2D greatness at its finest.
The music is also amazing.
For me this game has a ton of nostalgia, it consumed most of my childhood along with Doom, Blood, Turok, Sonic, and Spiderman games.

Give it a shot, if you can get it on a super nintendo or a sega genesis that would be a better bet.
but this one isn't bad at all, and works perfectly fine. and again I have no clue why the reviews are bad. This one works better than the gog version even! which is rare bc usually gog has the better support.
The gog version works the same but the controls get unresponsive if more than 1 button is pressed at a time, some of the animations chop off, and it has a lag that makes it a pain in the ♥♥♥ to control.
So if you're trying to pick between the gog version and this one; I'd say give this one a go.

This port has been poorly done and is more frustrating than it is fun. I can't recommend it.

This isn't the Earthworm Jim Special Edition for the PC, but its darn near close to it.

This version of EWJ is using the Dos port but that doesn't mean that its terrible sense its using an older port. Infact it has a bit of everything from many ports of the EWJ games! Heck its using Special Editions soundtrack and revamps the Dos version to something completely different. Sure it may sound like this game is a monstrosity to mankind but Its the best port of Earthworm Jim that is still being distributed. Be thankful that this game can still be purchased to this day!

In conclusion this port isn't perfect but its probably the best you can get right now at the moment, until interplay/shiny desides to re-release the special edition in all of its glory.

I'd suggest getting this game/collection its well worth your time and money.

The backround and foreground can be a little tricky deciphering which is which due to the wacky level design but all and all it is a great 2dplatformer. Just a really bad port, find elsewhere if you can.

I would recommend it IF you can adjust the configuration files. Otherwise, stay away and/or prepare to get a Steam refund. I posted instructions here to adjust them for EWJ1 and EWJ2:

http://steamcommunity.com/app/38480/discussions/0/541907867782189431/

The game was choppy. The controls weren't responsible at all. Audio had gaps. After the tweaks, it ran like it was supposed to, outside the occasional music gapping. The game itself seems like the CD version, and DOSBox is emulating a CD-Rom with audio tracks. I wonder if the newer DOSBox version has that fixed

This version has a trade-off. The music is recorded, unlike the SNES and Genesis versions. The music is also done really well. The graphics look better as well. You lose around 2 levels though.

An awfull port of an awesome game. Waste of money, this version is barely playable. Avoid at all costs. Would still recommend to check out the original game though, if you havent already done so.

I wish they had a refund policy. The sound and music do not work correctly. There are keys that you absolutely cannot assign when redoing the key bindings, and from what I've read getting a gamepad to work is a small miracle in and of itself. Save yourself some money and frustration and pass on this broken port of a sweet, but extremely difficult, game. GROOVY!

An amazing game slaughtered on the PC. It's basicaly a direct port of Earthworm jim on the PC and DOS. From that you can expect all the problems that come with a port like this. No controller support, complicated keyboard settings, audio issues, slow down and many other things. Personally, you are MUCH..MUCH better off playing the Super Nintendo and Genesis originals, or the Wii virtual console version.
If you can't get those then I would suggest Earthworm jim HD for the Xbox live arcade and Playstation network.
Even if you're a hardcore PC gamer, you deserve alot better ports for a game like Earthworm jim.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.

Earthworm Jim is a great series. EWJ is a great game. However, as to why this is the version on Steam, and not the better EWJ port done a few years later for 95, I haven't got a clue.

I do not recommend the DOS version, sorry.

As a fan of Earthworm Jim growing up this is an interesting case of nostalgia hitting up with what amounts to a lousy port.

Back in the SNES days Earthworm Jim was considered a fun game due to it's unique charm. Excellent gameplay, responsive controls, outrageous humor, terrific song and music, and fair difficulty. It's everything you want in a game, something that doesn't take itself too seriously and if you screwed up it wasn't the game's fault it's because you weren't good enough.

Some are present here, however the port wasn't a clean one.

Hit detection can be dodgy, missing levels, sounds that just aren't plumb there. Even among the poor ports out there this is probably the worst of the bunch.

If you want to get Earthworm Jim, I'd recommend the SNES/Sega/SegaCD ports. You're missing out by getting this even if you are a fan of Earthworm Jim.

Ever wonder what a terrible port looks like, but never (thankfully) had the chance to see one for yourself? Buy this game. You can barely control Jim. It's like a normal game, but you have chopped off several random fingers, and struggle to do even the easiest things by squirming and contorting your body in an attempt to do so. This was nothing but a cash grab. The smallest amount of time was put into this version. I'm not asking for a AAA effort, but you know, let me aim diagonal up right for Chrissakes.

(7/3/14) Edit: I'm not saying Earthworm Jim is bad, because it is not! Just the steam version is very ♥♥♥♥♥♥ and it's not worth even touching.
