Earthworm Jim is one of the toughest games that I've ever played. Just like many games in the 90s, the problem is that you don't get many lives. Some areas are pretty annoying to get through and you can lose all your lives extremely quickly.
The bosses have to be attacked in a particular way before they take damage and it's not always obvious when you're making progress towards defeating them. It's also incredibly difficult to avoid their attacks.
The game consisted of 10-12 levels (depending on the version):
Who Turned Out The Lights? (also referred to simply as Darkness) is a secret level in the original Earthworm Jim video game.
The secret level can be accessed via a hidden teleporter by a red light in Level 5, the giant laboratory of Professor Monkey-For-A-Head (which strangely enough is actually Level 6 in the game).

Earthworm Jim is a 1994 run and gun platform game developed by Shiny Entertainment, featuring an earthworm named Jim, who wears a robotic suit and battles the forces of evil. The game was released for the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo Entertainment System, before being subsequently ported to a number of other video game consoles. The game plays as a 2D sidescrolling platformer with elements of a run and gun game as well.
The player controls Jim and must maneuver him through the level while avoiding obstacles and enemies. The player can use Jim’s gun as a method of shooting enemies, or his worm body as a whip for whipping enemies. The whip move also allows the player to grab hold of, and swing from, certain hooks in the game. Some levels have additional requirements beyond merely getting to the end of the level. For example, the level “For Pete’s Sake”, involves making sure the computer-controlled Peter Puppy character gets through the level unharmed, which is accomplished by whipping him to make him jump over pits, and defeating enemies before they can damage him. Failure to do so results in Peter lashing out at Jim, taking away from his health.
Jim is a normal earthworm, until a special “super suit” falls from the sky and allows him to operate much like a human, with his worm body acting as a head and the suit acting as a body. Jim now must evade the game’s many antagonists, who want the suit back. The game plays out with Jim succeeding in his quest of meeting Princess What’s-Her-Name. However, she is crushed by a cow that Jim launched into space at the beginning of the game.
