Level Ate, also called the Planet of Meat in some materials, is the eighth level in Earthworm Jim 2.
It is notable for including the only secret level found in the game, Totally Forked, which is classed as the ninth level in the game.
Psy-Crow has tricked Earthworm Jim this time into the chaotic pantry of a gigantic, planetary kitchen. Here even the condiments try to eliminate intruders, and the poor snails which try to hide from the ever-present aerial bombardments from Salt Shakers under canopies of meat and umbrella cocktail sticks.
Jim has to transverse this world of food by turning off stoves, or cracking eggs so that he can move forward without taking damage. Enemies in this level include the aforementioned Salt Shaker, as well as the red, blue and yellow varieties of bendy straws. The level is also home to one of the few bosses in the game, Flamin' Yawn.
ProTip: Although you can't destroy the salt shaker (the bane of worms, we all know), shooting at it will stop it for a second and even make it back off a bit. Better yet, give it another target to distract it for a while."
- In all ports of the game, Level Ate reuses the same music from an earlier level in the game, The Flyin' King. This is a tropical-sounding theme based on "Cuban Pete".
- The secret level accessible from Level Ate, Totally Forked, does have its own unique music.
- Level Ate is the only level in Earthworm Jim 2 which contains a secret level, Totally Forked; not counting the Puppy Love levels, or the granny bonus stage from the first level which is well marked.
