So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

COWS. So many cows.

The sequel to Earthworm Jim takes the weirdness and cranks it up to 11. It's long, it's frustrating as hell, and it has no real password system...but overall, it's one of the best games of the 16-bit era.

Well done, Shiny.

Broken Cheat Code

Oh noes, where is my pen?

Pause the game and press A, B, X, Select, Select, X, B, A. Once entered, the level will restart showing no level name, causing the game to lock up. If you quickly press Start when the screen appears, it's possible to skip to the main menu, though this causes graphical glitches.

Its purpose may have been "Suicide", a cheat code present in the PlayStation and Saturn versions.
