Earthworm Jim

Earthworm Jim

Antique Code Show I can’t think of one person I’ve met who didn’t enjoy the run and gun fun of Earthworm Jim. Released in 1994 on both the Super Nintendo and Sega Megadrive (Genesis) it made my eyes pop. The graphics were revolutionary (and surreal) and it’s certainly one of the most popular platform games ever made. It went on to spawn a cartoon show, and several remakes and sequels, as well as a lot of really epic vinyl toys based on his facial expressions and striking poses.
