Product Information Yo funkmasters! It's time to dust off those hip shades and shiny medallions and get ready to groove again with alien rap stars ToeJam and Earl. This time the duo must restore their planet's funkiness by capturing the Earthlings who somehow managed to stow away aboard their spaceship. It won't be easy, so you'll have to shake every tree and search every bush to find them -- literally!

The game follows on the events of the first game, in which funky aliens ToeJam and Earl crash landed on Earth. After managing to rebuild their spaceship and returning safely to their home planet of Funkotron, the duo soon learn that a bunch of Earthlings had stowed away on their craft and have now invaded Funkotron. With the humans spreading panic across the planet's citizens, even scaring the source of all funk, Lamont the Funkapotomus, away to another dimension, it is up to ToeJam and Earl to clean up the mess they've made and send all the Earthlings they brought with them back to where they came from.

ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron is the sequel to 1991's ToeJam & Earl. Instead of the three-quarter view found in the original, the game adopts a more traditional side-scrolling style. Your job (as either Earl or ToeJam) is to find a specific amount of Earthlings, throw jars at them to "bottle them up," and then find the exit.

The game features 17 levels of platforming action across various sections of the planet. You'll also be able to talk with various alien inhabitants to test your rapping skills and earn presents. Passwords will let you continue your funky journey whenever you feel the urge to get down. Have a friend? Two players can play both aliens at once!

The game was met with considerable anticipation, positive reviews and commercial success according to IGN, with GamaSutra also recalling a positive critical reaction. A contemporary review in the Chicago Tribune called it a "beautifully designed game", as well as praising the Herbie Hancock-inspired soundtrack and non-violent action. The Washington Times also gave a positive verdict, stating: "This is one of the funniest games we've ever seen. The graphics are superb, and the action and control are flawless." Business Week wrote that "Sega knows what the kids find cool" with reference to the game. Mega placed the game at #14 in its Top Mega Drive Games of All Time. Fans of the original ToeJam & Earl however were disappointed and confused by the game's departure from the original concept to a more generic platforming format, with GameSpot and Shacknews later asserting that the game disappointed upon its initial release.
