Earthworm Jim ROM

Earthworm Jim rom

The Earthworm Jim ROM is available to play for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). This game is the US English version and can be played using the BSNES or HIGAN (SNES) Emulator on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and IOS devices.


Earthworm Jim is a 1994 run-and-gun platform game developed by Shiny Entertainment, featuring an earthworm named Jim, who wears a robotic suit and battles the forces of evil. The game was released for the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo Entertainment System, before being subsequently ported to a number of other video game consoles.

Additional Information

The game plays as a 2D sidescrolling platformer with elements of a run and gun game as well. The player controls Jim and must maneuver him through the level while avoiding obstacles and enemies. The player can use Jim’s gun as a method of shooting enemies, or his worm body as a whip for whipping enemies. The whip move also allows the player to grab hold of, and swing from, certain hooks in the game.

Some levels have additional requirements beyond merely getting to the end of the level. For example, the level “For Pete’s Sake”, involves making sure the computer-controlled Peter Puppy character gets through the level unharmed, which is accomplished by whipping him to make him jump over pits, and defeating enemies before they can damage him. Failure to do so results in Peter lashing out at Jim, taking away from his health.

Jim is a normal earthworm until a special “super suit” falls from the sky and allows him to operate much like a human, with his worm body acting as a head and the suit acting as a body. Jim now must evade the game’s many antagonists, who want the suit back. The game plays out with Jim succeeding in his quest of meeting Princess What’s-Her-Name. However, she is crushed by a cow that Jim launched into space at the beginning of the game.
