  • Summary: [DSiWare] The classic action platformer returns on the Nintendo DSi with a never-before-seen feature.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 2 out of 7

  1. Its redefined difficulty turns it into a platforms game both for nostalgic games and most of the public.
  2. Older gamers will love it, but young 'uns might scratch their heads. A fun but dated romp. [July 2010, p.89]
  3. If you've played Earthworm Jim before there's really nothing new here besides a tacked-on and repetitive camera mini-game. Still, the action platforming core of the game is enjoyable while it lasts.

    If you're a fan of the original, snap it up but otherwise consider what else you might buy with your $15 before you decide on this.
  5. Earthworm Jim has made the step to DSiWare relatively well, with all the immature humour, off-the-wall level design and charm that made it such a hit in its 16-bit days.
  6. The game, though, is the same enjoyable knockabout romp that it ever was, and Gameloft has thankfully made no attempt to shoehorn touch-screen controls in unnecessarily. If you feel a burning urge to spend 500 points to relive some small part of your lost youth, you won't be disappointed.

    Earthworm Jim is a bizarre, somewhat flawed 2D platformer that will assault gamers with devastating challenges.
