    Interesting.. I actually beat the 2nd game on PC. It was really fun, and this has the same title; Codename Robocod. Gotta look into this.

    There were hundreds of games on the Genesis that were better than James Pond, and they port this one.

    At least it isn't James Pond: Sea Horsez.

    Zero Wing? Actually... No one knows for certain exactly who "translated" it, or the current IP owner (if any since they went bankrupt).

    hehe, Amiga and Zool.
    Good stuff.

    Never really liked James Pond though,
    it was just too difficult.

    Can someone explain the point of this game to me? I don't understand what is going on........I can jump......when I jump, I can push dpad-down to slam stuff....but what is the point to this game besides getting to the exit and collect stuff? Is there anything else I can do besides jump, slam and collect? I can collect goodies...but for what? Why the hell am I doing this stuff? Am I missing some "moves" or what?

    I never played a James Pond game before. 'Splain it to me Lucy! I don't get it.

    I'm serious. I really don't understand the point of this game.

    There is no point. It's a total snoozefest. Even on the Genesis they were (I fell asleep watching a video of one of the games once).
