Earthworm Jim 2 (蚯蚓吉姆2) is a unlicensed port of the Sega Mega Drive game of the same name, made by Super Game for the Famicom and released sometime in 1997 by Realtec. It is the second Earthworm Jim 2 port, the first being produced by Ka Sheng, but unlike that version, it lacks the whip.
This is a port of the Mega Drive version. There are five levels, based on Anything but Tangerines, Inflated Head, Villi People, The Flyin' King and Udderly Abducted. The Puppy Love sub-levels are also included in this port. The player has infinite ammo and can use the Snot Backpack, but the whip does not seem to be usable in this port.
The graphics and music are taken from the original game and simplified. However, there are some graphical glitches and the music is not particularly faithful, but does seem fair for its type of soundtrack. Like many other Super Game ports, this game has no ending; after the player completes the final level, the game simply resets, although like Shin-Shin's port, this game finishes at Udderly Abducted.
- This game appears on many Super Game multicarts.
- The sound engine of this game was recycled from Konami games, like other Super Game products.
- There is a demo version (provided by maxzhou88) which starts at the Inflated Head level and contains a weird glitch in the Puppy Love stages.
