    Default New Earthworm Jim game with original team, Exclusively on Amico.

    Not sure about this and definitely not sure about the Amico in general, but this in theory is pretty cool if not somewhat awkward, we shall see I guess.

    Im not a fan of EW1. I thought the enemies were kind of cheap and the levels just a convoluted mess. I remember EW2 wasnt bad though

    Tommy wrote the music for the original game. It's cool to hear, although I felt like the original was mainly popular due to the animation and art style. It was not a terrifically fun game.

    It might be good. I'll wait and see before I get too excited.

    I'm pessimistic and see this coming to other systems when the Amico turns out to be vaporware.

    Even this isn't enough to save the Amico, in my opinion. I'm not terribly surprised by this announcement, considering Tallarico is the president and CEO of Intellivision Entertainment. If they were smart, they would've at least passed on bringing gross-ass Doug TenNapel aboard.

    I agree with that. It's one of those games that's mostly just flash and hype, rather than substance.

    I liked the original game as well as the sequel, I found the gameplay to be fun and varied. I'm not sure why people are saying it wasn't that good to begin with. I only have doubts about a new game being good because so much time has passed between the original games and this supposed new version that I don't think any new game will have the same feel as the originals, it'll feel like a copycat knockoff.
