James Pond 2: Codename: RoboCod
DOS - 1993
Description of James Pond 2: Codename: RoboCod
A solid PC conversion of Millennium's 1991 Amiga hit James Pond 2: Codename RoboCod.
RoboCod is a fantastic, colorful platform game which improves the genre with some very ingenious ideas. The star of the game is James Pond, a secret agent goldfish (yes, fish) who gets into all sorts of adventures on a dangerous mission to stop a madman. As MobyGames describes it:
"l like the way the game comes with: Creative ideas like its all-time colourful super-scroll and the ability to play a level in a reverse angle... You no longer have to worry about blind alleys like you did in games like Gods: Scretch yourself up wherever you are (there is always something on the top to grab hold of!)" There's plenty of other neat ideas and very cool levels, such as non-stop running at the top of a toy train; flying in a bathtub while having a bath(!), and always feeling the action when you move with its "amazing gravity-impetus super-scroll."
RoboCod is simply a must-have for every fan of platform games. At least the Amiga version could be called one of the best games in its genre, but this PC conversion is still surprisingly well-done. Two thumbs up!

I played the C64 demo given away with Commodore Format and first thing I loved was the music. OK, I love the music from Robocop and to this day is one of the most cult films ever. Graphics were decent, but at the time I was looking at ditching the beige box so never got to but it. I did play this on the Megadrive a year, but as platformers were ten a penny on that format, it kinda lost it's appeal on the console. I played the PC version about 15 years later and found it fun, but I had moved on from such games.

You have to edit the dosbox.conf and find the exe file name near the bottom and add /s to the end of it to get the sound to play.

Love the puns. Obviously playing off the 90's heroes James Bond & Robocop.
Sequel titles to come...

Awesome game! I remember playing this on the Amiga back in the day.
Works fine for me on DOSBOX with one problem - no sound. Anyone have any idea how I can get the sound working?

I worked with the the team of Pc developers on this title.
Loved it, for a conversion - the Amiga source was well structured and made the 'job' quite straightforward - if I remember it was all done within 12 weeks.
It was also being converted for a 'unnamed' and un-released console, that version was very good.
Thinking back, one very clever Kevin Cook did the scroller which was epic considering the Pc hardware, plus another very clever artist Mark Healey, did wonders with the art to make this game a pleasure to play!
As a footnote, I had no problems with Dos-Box and getting this game to work.

I managed to complete this game, it was very fun, sort of had a sonic element to it. Very colorful candy as Fonus was saying.

Colorful Candy. On a AGA machine anyway.
Wierd platformer with tons of Color.
