No way, Toe Jam is a wiener.

Panic on Funkatron WAS my childhood. That game was the best.

@iizcallum: It may have been because I was so young, BUT I LOVED PANIC IN FUNKOTRON. Maybe the gameplay isn't anything like the first one, but I think the aesthetic and stuff that made you like about TJ&E is still in there.

Posted by joshthebear

Have to say, I love TJ & E II, no matter what anyone says. A lot of fond memories playing through that with friends.

I played the shit out of this game with my sister when we were kids. Love it to death.

Edited by CaLe

My sister also does the same thing Drew's does. She plays GTA like a taxi driver simulator and follows road rules when bringing the passengers to their destination.

Definitely one of my favourite games from the 16-bit era. Loved the presents system. That music really brings me back. Props to Big Jeffrey and my man Funky Drewster for shining some light on this gem.

Haters gonna hate and all that, I loved Panic in Funkotron.

I'd agree it isn't as interesting as the first game, I wasn't looking for a Toejam & Earl side scroller either - but for what it was, it was decent enough.

Jeff, you forgot to mention the hot ladies give you lemonade in the secret hot tub area

Posted by SgtSphynx

I'm with Drew, I love Toe Jam & Earl, played a shit ton of TJ&E as a kid, never beat it though.

Posted by Tomorrowman

my brother hated the sega, but this was the one game the brought him over to my side.

Posted by rmanthorp

I could watch them play the rest of this.

Posted by Soap

Why all the Panic on Funkatron hate!? That game was so great!

Maybe it's because I played that before the first game but I prefer it by a looooooooong way. The first game is just...kinda dull.

Posted by paulunga

Panic on Funkotron is a great game unless you expected to get more of TJ&E 1. Just don't watch the last 8 or so minutes because they're pretty pointless.

I was actually planning on buying this on the Virtual Console when I get the Wii U.

I originally played "Panic on Funkitron", so my love for it is unmatched.

Posted by AjayRaz

Posted by Xeirus

Nothing could make me more happy than GB playing T&E..... love this site.

Posted by Incapability

Please make a premium video where you just... play this. All the way through.

Posted by AlKusanagi

Those Toejam and Earl 2 sprites are amazing.

Posted by smitty86

Panic on Funkatron was the fucking best. I used to play that game all day long.

Posted by TekZero

My brother and I would play Toejam + Earl for hours. One of our favorite games of all time.

YES! I remember picking this up for my genesis and playing it for hours.

Edited by ChosenOne

Ok good to see from the comments that I'm not the only one who really enjoyed TJ&E 2, good times as a kid playing through that game with my younger brother. Those purple jump-pads really brought on a wave of nostalgia.

Posted by CrossTheAtlantic

@rebgav: Well that was not something I expected to see this morning.

Posted by Sonny009

fucking love toejam and earl

Posted by TooWalrus

Having never been exposed to Toejam & Earl before...

What the hell is this?!

Posted by ShaggE

The sequel may not have been great, but it was stunning at the time. Just a million little touches that made it at least LOOK amazing.

Posted by NoelVeiga

Panic on Funkotron is the superior game. I will defend this against anyone at noon, ten paces.

Posted by Pop

dynamic split screen? holy hell this was waaaaaaaaay before it's time and that HP split when they high five, holy crap!

Posted by laserbolts

Spent so many hours with this game back in the day. So getting this. Also you can use an inner tube to get to the secret island as well.
