David Perry and Shiny Entertainment developed the 2D sidescrolling platformer for the Sega Mega Drive and Super Nintendo consoles in 1994. The scenario sprung from animator Douglas TenNapel's sketch of Jim, a regular earthworm granted athletic abilities by an astronaut suit and plasma blaster. Shiny had previously collaborated with the music composer on 7up's Cool Spot platformer.

The Earthworm Jim Anthology remastered vinyl soundtrack includes the scores for Earthworm Jim 1 & 2 by Tallarico. Published by Black Screen Records, the four-sided 180g double vinyl record flew off the shelves. The digital soundtrack is available for streaming on Spotify. An excerpt is streaming on SoundCloud.

From the product page:
Jim wasn't always a studly super-worm. He was once just a spineless, dirt-eater with no real mission in his life... But then something unexpected happened. The evil Psy-Crow was transporting a super suit, built by the genius Professor Monkey-For-A-Head, to Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-Filled, Malformed, Slug-For-A-Butt, but along the way it was stolen by a rebel. Although Psy-Crow killed the rebel, the suit fell down to Earth, landing on an Earth Worm. That cosmic twist of fate placed Jim in control of an ultra-high-tech-indestructible-super-space-cyber-suit. - Earthworm Jim 1+2: The Whole Can 'O Worms
