ToeJam and Earl™

Arcade games were successful in setting up a foundation for video games in the future. These games were simple and easy but they developed the basic idea and gameplay of the games we play today. These games were released in a variety of genres; sometimes two or more genres were combined in one game.

ToeJam & Earl™ is an action video game released in 1991. It centers on the titular ToeJam and Earl—alien “rappers” who have crash-landed on Earth. As they attempt to escape the planet, players assume the role of either character and collect pieces of their wrecked spacecraft. It parodies 1990’s urban culture and is set to a funk soundtrack.

The Gameplay

ToeJam & Earl™ takes place from a top-down perspective in a 2D game world. Its gameplay mechanics are like a dungeon-crawl game—a type of scenario in fantasy role-playing game in which heroes navigate a labyrinthine environment, battling various monsters, and looting any treasure they may find. The game contains both single-player and two-player cooperative modes.

The game is set on Earth, which is represented by randomly generated islands that float in space, each one a layer above the last. They are connected by elevators. Some islands contain pieces of spacecraft wreckage, of which the player must collect 10 to win the game. The player’s character drops to the island below if he falls from an island’s edge, which necessitates that the player locates an elevator again. Each island is populated by antagonistic “Earthlings”, such as phantom ice-cream trucks, aggressive packs of “nerds”, giant hamsters, Bogeymen, man-eating mailboxes, and police chickens. Certain Earthlings aid the player.

Strategy

Power-ups are contained in wrapped presents, which are categorized by appearance. The contents of a present are unknown to the player until it is opened; afterwards, all presents of that appearance are identified. Identification of presents’ contents is a central gameplay mechanic. Each power-up has a unique effect. Certain presents contain harmful power-ups, such the loss of a “life”, or the “randomizer”, which hides the identity of all presents.

Difficulty Levels

The game ends when the player loses all the lives available.
