Storyline

Two funk-loving aliens named ToeJam and Earl crash-land on a weird planet called Earth after colliding with a meteorite.

Aided by a few friendly Earthlings and random item-boxes spread around the planet, ToeJam and Earl start their adventure through 25 levels in order to find 10 pieces of their spaceship so they can get back to their home-planet Funkotron.
