    While not technically for the DS, Earthworm Jim & Earthworm Jim 2 are both available for the GBA, so if you're not on a DSi you could play those.

    If you're looking for something new, though, I can't really think of anything that had that special something EWJ did available for the DS.

    Earthworm Jim & Earthworm Jim 2 are not just a platform game

    Literally nothing on DS comes anywhere near EWJ. In fact, i've never really seen a game for any system quite like them. Of course, you could load them up in JenesisDS, which plays the originals well. The GBA ports were steaming piles of goat shit however, stay away.

    I realize this isn't much help... But I thought you should know that there are other options...

    That's a Yobo FC16GO... or Handheld Super Nintendo... Works like a charm...

    Oh... and I'm not very good at takeing photos without a flash...

    They're bad ports though.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Gamelofts port will make DSiWare one day.

    Yeah that is the Gameloft one, they're pretty much bringing it to everything that has a download service.

    Yes, the GBA versions of Earthworm Jim are disappointing.

    Though, perhaps a port could make it to the DSiWare channel. The recent Rayman port gives me hope that other developers will start flexing their retro muscles.

    It depends... Would you rather carry around a simple DS or an FC16GO and a bag of games the size of a small car...

    I've had a little time with it... You can plug it into a TV and play it like a normal Super Nintendo complete with Wireless controllers... but your limited to either the number of games you actually own or the number your willing to carry...

    I really like that I can take this thing to my best friends house and not have to worry about his Spaz dog pulling my Super Nintendo off the shelf while were playing it...

    I'd stick with the DS... I mean this thing is huge... But I still love it!
