Earthworm Jim HD Demo

Holy Cow!! If you ever played Earthworm Jim back in the day or even if you never, then you need to get this copy now. Not only did they do a fantastic job of making it look Spectacular in HD, but they added so much new and extra bits that you would be doing yourself a disservice to gaming to NOT play this.

The only thing keeping me from getting this right away is that I already have too many games in my backlog to catch up on. Maybe after I finish Death Spank.

But the demo gives you the first level and the asteroid race to explore and holy cow what a great job, the music, the animation, the sounds, that lens flare at the start of the level. I can't say enough good things about this.

Then they throw in 3 new levels and 4 player co-op. I have no idea how that is going to work, but man am I stoked to play this again.

This is possible one of the few times that I was genuinely blown away by a demo, I want this game and so should you. Especially if you never played a Earthworm Jim title.

I remember watching the cartoon, lol. I saw this demo and thought nothing of it.... Now I think I should give it a try.

That totally gave me the thrill of playing a SNES game for the first time.

For a few seconds, I was back in the 90's.

I've been contemplating buying the Sega CD version for years, and now I'm glad I never did. This looks like the version to have. I'm really curious to see how this plays co-op. Maybe if enough people show interest, they'll port Earthworm Jim 2 as well.
