We hope the following news isn’t a red herring – radically retro videogame character James Pond is making a comeback on the App Store later this month.
James Pond in the Deathly Shallows has nothing to do with a particular wizard but instead sees the titular fish ridding the ocean of pollution while avoiding an array of menacing marine life. James, who is armed with a bubble gun, is also able to don an airtank (watertank?) and leap onto dry land.
Developers Gameware promise an innovative control method devised specifically for iOS devices.
James Pond II: Robocod is often referred to as the highlight of James’ career, but this appears to be more like the first romp which featured maze-like level design.
Bizarrely, the fact that there was a third James Pond game – subtitled Operation Starfi5h – is often ignored. Probably because it wasn’t very good.
