Games to try before you die: ToeJam and Earl 2 (Sega Genesis)
Actually named "ToeJam and Earl: Panic on Funkotron. Was a damn good game! Platforming, presents, funk, aliens, bouncy things, and even more funk!
What: The second in a short run series of ToeJam and Earl games, you play as either ToeJam or Earl and you have to get those damn humans off your planet! Why? Because they are taking away the groovy FUNK of FUNKOTRON! How? You JAR them! That's right, thrown jars at them, toss them in a bag and send em' back to earth!
Why: In a world of games based on realism, sometimes you need the craziness of a game like this. The platforming is stellar, there are hidden items, memory games, and it takes a couple hours to get through.
Check it out, it'll make you funky
