James Pond: Codename Robocod

I donít know if any of you remember this title from the old skool Mega Drive days but I certainly do. Featuring your nemesis Dr Maybe, you have to stop the evil doc from having his way with world domination. The game basically plays the same way as it did back in the day, however there are features built in to take advantage of the DSís abilities like itís touch screen capabilities. 

The game for those of you who are not aware, the James Pond series is a platforming series and the abilities of James to squish and squirm his way through a series of very cool game worlds populated by some fantastic creatures. 

The gameís appearance is quite cutesy and the style of play certainly deserves the G rating that the game got in Australia. Itís bright and colourful and sure to be a hit with the kids and adults. The controls on the DS make the game pretty easy to handle and there is only a very minor time that you will need to take in order to work out how to make the most of Jameís abilities. 

There are the usual gameplay elements like collecting items in order to help Jameís score and also rescuing creatures in distress. Fight your way through a level and of course there are some pretty cool boss battles for you to figure out. All in all itís a pretty fun little game. 

The score for the game suits it perfectly and is not jarring or too over the top. Some platformers have a tendency to play music that makes you wish that you could just destroy your console rather than hear another bar of the tune that is playing! Pond has a retro soundtrack that is perfectly suited. 

A nice touch to this title is that you can finally save after each level which is a breath of fresh air. Some gamers might find this one a bit simplistic, but I found it a neat way to really enjoy a neat new version of a gaming classic. 

Thumbs Up!
