Yesterday I saw a picture about Earthworm Jim, and today I had time to reinstall it. I remembered that it is a great game, I loved it when I was a child. But now I didn't had the patience to finish the first stage. It's exactly the same situation like I loved Scooby Doo when I was a child, but know I can't even watch it for 5 minutes. Maybe it's because I have played so many better games (better stories, better and smoother gameplay, not especially better graphics). I don't know. I was irritated how all those crows just came at me and I couldn't even aim exaclty at them.
In it's time it seemed like it was one of the best games. Although it was a time when I had only Super Mario and Prehistorik available on my computer.
The hero is an earthworm named Jim. I didn't realize this until now (english is not my native language, so I'm not surprised that I didn't observe this as a child). Maybe I liked it because it was so cartoony and fun to look at.
