ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron, called ToeJam & Earl in Panic auf Funkotron in Germany, is the sequel to ToeJam & Earl, and was released for the Sega Mega Drive in 1993.

Unlike the original game it is a 2D sidescroller set on ToeJam and Earl's home planet, Funkotron. The story picks up after the first game, where after escaping earth the duo find a number of Earthlings have stowed away on their ship, and are now causing mayhem.

History

Development

Johnson Voorsanger Productions had originally planned to make the sequel to ToeJam & Earl much like its predecessor, i.e. a top-down action game as opposed to a sidescroller. Sega of America, however, felt that it would be better as a 2D platformer, so the game was entirely reworked to suit the publisher's needs.

Legacy

The game was eventually followed by ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth for the Xbox.
