Ancient DOS Games --- Episode 114

Earthworm Jim

Additional Information and Corrections:

  • If you wanna grab a copy of the DOS version of Earthworm Jim 1 and 2, follow this link:http://www.gog.com/gamecard/earthworm_jim_1_2

  • Steamís Earthworm Jim pack also includes Earthworm Jim 3D, however, buying all three games on GOG is cheaper than buying Steamís pack. :P

  • After some more digging around, I believe Rainbow Arts was responsible for most of the porting process of the game from the Genesis/SNES versions to the PC version. Also, Interplay seems to be the current publisher for the recent re-releases.

  • The game actually trolls you a bit if you beat it on its practice difficulty mode: It just shows you a picture of a couple cows and some guy spouts off a bunch of mostly inaccurate facts about earthworms, followed by some credits stuff.

  • There seems to be a bit of confusion between the DOS and Windows versions of EWJ and EWJ2. It seems as though there was an early Windows 95 version which is actually a truer port of the Sega CD version of the first game, then a year later came a DOS release of the first two games together, but ported differently, with speed issues and missing features, yet still using the CD audio from the enhanced version. THIS is the version you get from GOG, as the origial Windows 95 port apparently runs into a lot of problems trying to run on modern Windows systems. (Par for the course for many early Win95 games.)

  • Favourite moment in the television cartoon: When Jim tries to rocket off into the sky during the title sequence and falls off, followed by Pete facepalming. ;D
