Earthworm Jim 3 is an NES port of Earthworm Jim with a 3 slapped on.

To do:
  • There appears to be some unused data related to Buttville, which wasn't ported over. Research this further.
  • Is there any more data related to the Psycrow boss battle?

Unused Music

There's a ton of unused tracks in the NSF, most of which are earlier versions of Donkey Kong Country 4 tracks. Some of Hummer Team's later games may have these tracks in the ROM unused (with the exception of War, which does use some of these).

Track 2 and Track 15 - Donkey Kong Country 4 Victory Fanfare

Triangle channel is at a higher pitch.

Track 3 - Donkey Kong Country 4 Map Screen

Plays at a slower tempo.

Track 5 - Donkey Kong Country 4 Bad Boss Boogie

Seems normal at first...but when it begins to loop, the channels desync.

Track 7 - Donkey Kong Country 4 Fear Factory

Square 2 plays at a higher pitch in the beginning.

Track 9 - Psycrow Battle

The only unused track related to Earthworm Jim. It's possible Hummer Team planned to include the fight with Psycrow, even though Andy Asteroids isn't here.

Track 10 - Donkey Kong Country 4 Life In The Mines

Triangle channel is higher pitched.

Track 11 - Super Mario World Fortress/Castle

Exactly the same as the one found in Donkey Kong Country 4 and Hummer Team's Super Mario World.

Track 12 - Donkey Kong Country 4 Aquatic Ambiance

Triangle channel is higher pitched.

Track 13 - Super Mario World The End

Exactly the same as the one found in Donkey Kong Country 4 and Hummer Team's Super Mario World.

Track 14 - Donkey Kong Country 4 Life Lost

Exactly the same as Donkey Kong Country 4.
