  • 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
  2. Negative: 0 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]

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

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

    The never before seen feature is a photo booth placing your face at a cows neck. Nothing special.

    The game is great, just as it always was.

    The game is great, just as it always was. Control a worm, shoot stuff and collect items. What differs in this version is the speed. I feel like the game's running way too fast compared to the other ports. There's also a bunch of levels cut from the original version. Besides that and the photo booth feature, there's nothing new to see in this sloppy port.

    If you have a PS3/Xbox 360, buy that version. Or better yet, the PC (special edition) version.
