Are you a bad enough dude to
A Lumbricus terrestris in a robotic suit faces off against the likes of a mad scientist with a simian fused into his crown, an alien made of snot and a hideous queen with a gigantic gastropod mollusc for buttocks.

David Perry's Private Cheat Mode
A debug mode still exists in Earthworm Jim. It displays information about how much memory is used by the game, as well as its build date. During game play, pause the game and enter the following code: Left + A, B, B, A, Right + A, B, B, A.
A screen showing the Shiny Entertainment staff will appear as Jim called the player "Cheater!", followed by the debug menu.
|CHEAT MODE||Enables invincibility.|
|START ON LEVEL||Use A and B to select a level, then press Start to begin.|
|FREEZEABILITY||Prevents the game from dimming the screen when paused.|
|MAP VIEW MODE||Use the control pad to move the camera around the level; press A to move Jim to the current location.|
The PAL version of the game was built three days after its NTSC counterpart.
Exclusive to the PAL version is a screen that mocks the player and then resets the game. During game play, pause the game and enter the following code: A, C, A, A, C, C, A, B.
