Review By Ridge

Amiga have always been lucky with good platformers and this James Pond 2 - Robocod here is among the better ones. On amiga there are a total of 3 (4) James Pond games and the fourth one is Aquatic Games. Robocod is the best iand most enhanced in the trilogy and contains 50 Hz scrolling 8 ways on large levels. The CD32 version is partially enhanced for AGA, have and intro and the complete original kick-ass soundtrack remixed to CD Audio. The music is awesome and is made by the famous Amiga composer Richard Joseph. He rarely dissepoints when he makes music. Anyway the looks like a standard platformer, but is not because you can reach at the top of the screen while still stanting at the bottom. Your body stretches so it looks like a long cylinder with fish head and legs. Yes, James Pond is a fish. You can also use different vehicles like cars and planes and the whole is so good designed that it works extremly good. There is background gfx everywhere and the whole game looks smooth. It's very fast when you run and you can also jump of course. There is lots of bonus stuff to collect to increase the score. The game is very huge and some of the bosses are very hard to kill and i know, because i have played through the whole game on A500 in ~1992.
The main goal is to collect trapped pingvins and stay clear from the baddies. I highly recommend this game and it's better and more enhanced than James Pond 3.
