James Pond: Underwater Agent, is a platform video game released for numerous home computers and consoles in 1990. The game is a... parody on the famous agent 007 stories! James Pond has a lot going for it. It sports cute graphics, funny sounds, offers addictive gameplay and provides hours of endless fun with a great sense of humor! It was initially released for the Commodore Amiga and later, for the Atari ST and Acorn Archimedes series computers.
 
Review
James PondThe character was popular and even featured in some comic books of the time, and the game was successful enough to spawn two sequels and one spin-off game. The game is a... parody on the famous agent 007 stories! You control an intelligent, mutated anthropomorphic fish who is given the name James Pond, and hired by the British Secret Service to protect the seas and take out the bad guys in underwater areas. You have to solve puzzles to defeat the enemy and the gameplay revolves around finding objects to perform specific tasks, such as keys to rescue captured lobsters, or sponges to bung up the holes in leaking oil tankers. James must also fire bubbles at his enemies to trap them, before popping them to finish them off. There are 12 complete missions, each named after James Bond movies! Information about each of the levels is displayed before you begin the game too.
James Pond has a lot going for it. It sports cute graphics, funny sounds, offers addictive gameplay and provides hours of endless fun with a great sense of humor!

The ST version is technically nice, featuring cute colorful graphics quite close to the original (Amiga) and being superior to the Archimedes version! The sprites animation is fluid and the action is fast, too.
I also liked the sound here, which offers great gameplay sound FX and tunes, while there is a catchy introductory theme taken from the original. But still the Amiga version offers superior sound in this title!
