 We love Virtual Console but man fuck writing a full review of something we just paid six dollars for. Have a Quick Hit instead.

Earthworm Jim, in my eyes, is the 16-bit equivalent of Battletoads due to its strange sense of humor, cartoonish style and vast variety of levels, though thankfully the difficulty is much more forgiving than any given 'Toads game. Earthworm Jim HD is essentially a step up, adding in some new content to the original release (mostly in the form of extended stages), along with some improved audio and visuals.

The strangest new feature is an online two-player mode, which serves as a strange hybrid of both competitive and cooperative play. On one hand, players must both work together to traverse stages by opening gates and clearing obstacles for one another. On the other, both players are also trying to collect more items, defeat more enemies and reach the finish line before their opponent without dying (which subtracts points and prevents the other player from proceeding).

Aside from that, this is pretty much the same as the PC and Sega CD versions of Earthworm Jim, which are in turn enhanced from the SNES and Genesis versions in content and audio quality. At only $10 it's a damn good bargain, especiallyover the increasingly rare Sega CD version.
