Non-Sega versions

Earthworm Jim 2 (アースワーム・ジム2) is the direct sequel to Earthworm Jim, and was released (among other consoles) for the Sega Mega Drive in 1995. An enhanced version was released on the Sega Saturn.

It retains the surreal humour from the first game and was followed by Earthworm Jim 3D in 1999.

Story

Following on from the ending of the first game, Earthworm Jim had removed the cow (which he had unknowingly launched) from atop Princess Whats-Her-Name, reinflated the squashed lady, and won her heart. However, Psy-Crow kidnaps the Princess and plans on marrying her at the Las Vegas system in order to take over the universe. Jim, with help from Snott, has to follow their trail across the various summer homes of his enemies.

Gameplay

Though very similar to the original game, Earthworm Jim 2 has more varied gameplay than its predecessor. As well as including standard platforming levels, there are also quiz questions, an isometric shoot 'em up level and various adaptions to the platforming formula, including marathon races and a stage where Jim must shoot his way through mounds of dirt.

Jim is controlled in much the same way as the original game, though with some new and changed abilities. He can still fire his gun by pressing A and can still use his head as a whip with B while on the ground, though he can no longer use his head whip in the air. Instead, pressing C while in the air will make Jim launch Snott in front of him to grab onto and swing from mucous-covered ceilings. Jim's ability to spin his head like a helicopter has been replaced with the Snott parachute, which is performed by holding A in the air. In some levels, heavy objects such as animals and furniture can be lifted and carried by pressing Down by one, though using any attacks will make Jim drop the object. In the Saturn version, X can be used to cycle through the weapons Jim has collected.

Items

Suit Power

Super Suit Power
Fully restores Jim's energy back to 100%.

Levels

Presumably due to streaming issues (i.e. the need to load data from the disc), the Saturn treats some of the boss battles as new levels. For the most part, however, the content is the same between both versions.

Anything but Tangerines
The summer home of Bob the Goldfish, this planet is filled with blunderbuss-wielding octopi, and E-Z stair climbers for Jim to ride up stairs on providing he avoids the falling grannies, using the D-Pad to control the lift's speed. There are water slide sections where #4 will ambush Jim if he tries to pass, so he must pick up a pig and push it down the water slide to advance. At the end of the level, Jim must confront Bob himself.

Granny Chair
A hidden level accessed by an optional teleporter within Anything but Tangerines, in which Jim has to ride up a long staircase while avoiding grannies. At the top of the level is an extra life and a teleporter leading back to Anything but Tangerines.

Lorenzo's Soil
In this level, Jim must use his gun to burrow through the dirt of planet Burbank's subterranean excavation site and reach the top of the level while also dealing with maggots and ants. Dirt shot from the ceiling will crumble down and add to the dirt beneath Jim's feet, raising the ground so he can reach higher places as well as extinguishing exposed gas pipes. This level is also timed - if the timer in the top-right corner reaches zero, an earthquake will occur. Collecting the clocks will reset the timer back to 90 seconds.

At the end of the level, the timer is disabled as Jim fights Pedro pupa, who will ride around on a unicycle and spit maggots at Jim.

Puppy Love Part 1
One of three Puppy Love levels in the game in which Psy-Crow has taken Peter Puppy's puppies hostage and is throwing them out of an abandoned spaceport control tower. Jim has to save the puppies using a giant marshmallow to bounce them to Peter. The D-Pad moves Jim left and right, pressing A changes the direction Jim is facing, and B or C will make Jim dive forward in the direction he is facing. If Jim lets too many puppies fall to the ground, Peter will get angry and attack Jim.

Among the puppies and items, Psy-Crow will also throw bombs, which will explode and damage Jim if they hit the ground. Jim has to guide those to Peter, so that he will throw them back at Psy-Crow.

The Villi People/Jim's Now a Blind Cave Salamander!
In this level, Jim dresses up as Sally the blind cave salamander in order to make his way through Doc Duodenum's summer home, the living intestinal planet, while taking care not to come into contact with the many villi that line the walls. To control Sally, the player should use the D-Pad to change Sally's direction, C to swim up and move, and A or B to fire Jim's gun.

The player can collect meal worms in this level, which are used for entry to a nonsensical quiz mini-game near the end of the level for bonus items. One question is asked for each meal worm found. After the quiz, the player has to play a Simon Says mini-game using pinball bumpers.

The Flyin' King
Riding on his pocket rocket, Jim must escort a bomb tied to a balloon all the way across an isometric course to Major Mucus and blow him up. Pressing A fires the rocket's guns while C changes Jim's direction. To make things difficult, there are pirate ships that shoot cannonballs, drones that shoot mucous bullets, and catapults that launch sumo Roman centurions who will latch on to the rocket and cause damage. Repeatedly change directions to shake them off.

If the bomb is destroyed in transit, the player can use the Express Lanes at the sides to quickly return to the beginning of the level to get another bomb.

Udderly Abducted
This level's gimmick is to safely carry cows to the barns so that Jim can proceed forward with the level. However, udder UFOs will try to abduct the cows, forcing the player to backtrack and get another cow from a flower to carry through the level. Mutant superpowered penguins will also impede Jim's progress.

Inflated Head
Arriving at Evil the Cat's "Circus of the Scars", Jim must inflate his head using the air pumps to fly higher through the circus, navigating past harmful flashing lightbulbs and collecting meal worms along the way. The speed at which Jim rises or falls can be controlled by pressing B and C to respectively deflate and inflate Jim's head. Evil himself will make multiple attempts to pop Jim's head, dealing serious damage and causing him to fall all the way back down.

Hammer Head
Using the meal worms he has collected throughout Inflated Head, Jim can jump on the strength tester and hit the boxing glove to win bonus items. When he has no more meal worms left, the level ends.

The Saturn version considers this a separate level.

ISO 9000
Jim has been led to the planet of paperwork, where file cabinets will chase him, and masked lawyers and accountants hide in ambush for him. To advance through the level, Jim will have to interact with the machinery, such as switching off the timed blast surfaces and carrying mouse cages to power giant grinders that will transport Jim to further parts of the level.

Door Chase
Taking place at the end of ISO 9000, Jim has to chase after a door that is running away from him while also avoiding file cabinets. To catch the door, Jim will have to cleverly pick up the wardrobe with a leg sticking out of it, then trick the door into tripping itself over the leg so he can enter it and end the level.

The Saturn version also considers this a separate level.

Level Ate
Jim finds himself on a planet made of meat and forks where the main threat is a salt shaker that will chase him relentlessly. To escape the salt shakers, Jim must hurry and run for the marked shelters, some of which have snails he can whip to serve as distractions for the salt shakers. Shooting the salt shakers will also push them back, while Homing Missiles can destroy them outright. To cross grills, Jim must either switch off the grills or crack open eggs to serve as platforms.

This level also has a hidden secret level, "Totally Forked".

Flamin' Yawn
Flamin' Yawn, a large steak, serves as the boss of Level Ate, who will fight Jim on top of a pizza and attack by either pushing the plate down at him or by jumping down to breathe fire at him. Jim will sink into the cheese if he steps in it, so it is a good idea to stay on the pepperoni slices at all times.

Also considered separate in the Saturn version.

Jim has finally reached the largest 24-hour church and deli in the Lost Vegas system, where he must race against Psy-Crow through the cathedral to rescue Princess What's-Her-Name. Some of the obstacles can be cleared by shooting them or whipping them.

History

Legacy

The Mega Drive version of the game was re-released for the Wii's Virtual Console service.

Versions

Mega Drive version

Like its predecessor, Earthworm Jim 2 was developed with the Sega Mega Drive in mind, with the code subsequently ported to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The Mega Drive version is therefore the original copy of the game and the basis for most of the ports going forward.

This version would be used for the game's Virtual Console release on the Wii in 2009 and western models of the Mega Drive Mini 2 in 2022, though the SNES version was used for the Nintendo Switch Online release in 2022.

Saturn version

The Sega Saturn version of Earthworm Jim 2 was ported to the system (alongside a PlayStation version) by Screaming Pink. It uses the enhanced CD audio soundtrack seen in the PC version released six months prior, while making a number of improvements to the game' graphics (namely the backgrounds, which are unique to these two versions). A great deal still resembles that of the Mega Drive original, however, and many of the sprites remain largely unchanged (including those employing dithering techniques to circumvent the Mega Drive's limited colour palette).

The Saturn version runs in a higher resolution than all other ports (352x240 vs 320x240 for the PlayStation), though as the graphics were not altered to compensate, this means on a standard 4:3 display, the visuals are slightly "thinner" than their counterparts on other platforms. The Saturn also features more graphical effects than the PlayStation, such as more parallax background layers and transparency effects. Loading times are also quicker, sound effects play at a higher sample rate, and Jim correctly says "A", "B" or "C" when answering questions in the "Game Show" segment (no lines were recorded for Square, X and Circle).

The Saturn and PlayStation versions of Earthworm Jim 2 were considered controversial by some critics in 1996, as it was felt the upgrades were not significant enough to justify the release on newer hardware.
