ToeJam & Earl




I'm a fan of rap music, I'm a fan of video games, I'm a fan of aliens, and I'm a fan of Sega Genesis. In 1991 all four of these worlds collided and brought us *fanfare please* TOEJAM AND EARL!!! One of the best Sega Genesis games only rivaling Street of Rage 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog [imo, again]

When I first got ToeJam and Earl back in the 90s, I thought at first it would suck, and the name ToeJam really churned my stomach, but boy did I love this game and now ToeJam doesn't really bother me.

Now onto the game; ToeJam and Earl are the names of the main protagonists. ToeJam; a red slim 3 legged alien wearing a backwards hat, sneakers and "TJ" pendant, Earl; a fat slovenly yellow alien wearing blue shorts with red polka and sunglasses and sneakers who is ToeJam's friend and loves to eat. The game takes place on the planet Earth, where for some odd reason there are floating islands connected by elevators, the game is a top down 2-D perspective much like the game it was based off of [I believe Rogue] anyways your main objective is to collect all 10 of the pieces to ToeJam and Earl's ship that crash landed on Earth. Main antagonists in the game are; "Earthlings" represented by devils and nerds and bogeymen, you collect power ups in presents, some power ups give you speed, strength etc. ToeJam and Earl is by all means non-violent, the only way to defeat your enemies i by throwing tomatoes at them...which is pretty funny.

Now my ratings; each will be out of 5

Graphics 4/5:
Pretty standard Sega Genesis graphics, but really good though, I can't really word this a lot so just take the 4/5

Sound 5/5:
The music is AMAZING, it's 16 bit hip-hop gold

Gameplay 4/5:
Fun to play and the controls are easy to pick up

Overall 4/5:
ToeJam and Earl is a fun game to play and it is a Sega Genesis classic and I'm am glad I played such an amazing video game, I definitely recommend it for every nostalgic fan or video gamer or both out there.

Re: ToeJam & Earl

ToeJam and Earl was never one of the games I owned, and it wasn't because of dislike, either. I never got it because it sold out so fast.

Re: ToeJam & Earl

Good review. I love this game and to me it's a classic. I agree the music is great but I think the whole package is awesome. I'd rate the game a 5/5, no flaws.
