Earthworm Jim Wiki
Not to be confused with the character of the same name.

Psy-Crow is a small, potentially recurring level in the original Earthworm Jim video game.

Earthworm Jim only has to play this level if he loses the race with Psy-Crow in one of the recurring Andy Asteroids? in-between levels. Psy-Crow flies around Jim on a barren planetoid, attempting to remove Jim from his Super Suit with his hook gun. On higher difficulties, this level can be quite challenging.

It is not possible to defeat Psy-Crow entirely. However, once the enemy has taken enough punishment, either from Jim using his worm head as a whip or by shooting at Psy-Crow with the Plasma Blaster, Psy-Crow will flee, leaving Jim to proceed to the next level.

  • Since the Plasma Blaster's only real effect on Psy-Crow is to stun him, whipping Psy-Crow with Jim's worm head is the most effective option, causing the most damage. However, shoot at Psy-Crow first, when he isn't too high, to stun him. This will stop him from flying around for a time, enabling easier worm-whippings, and also preventing Psy-Crow's counter-attacks when he is stunned and flapping his feathers.
