    Just announced a new version of Earthworm Jim for the Amico. They got the original team that did the first two games to do the new version.

    Earthworm Jim is one of those game series that have aged poorly. The graphics, music and character designs were very good for the time. But the actual game play and level designs were just not good. The difficultly was too high and the levels were purposely frustrating to navigate.

    It's like the original Battletoads. That kind of mean spirited difficulty, frustrating level designs and game play mechanics just wouldn't fly any more. The Turbo Tunnel level was RARE just cruelly screwing with the player. Not to mention it was a two player co-op game that was made purposely more difficult by having the players damage each other more than enemies they were fighting.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Oh wow. I'd have paid more attention to this if I'd known it would be so artistic. That's a thing of beauty.

    I'm looking forward to the amico. It looks like it'll be a great console choice for those who liked the original wii. I hope alot of early eighies intellivision games are offered on it. To this day, I hate INTL emulation because I want those oddball controllers and the flashback didnt have my favorite game: burgertime!
