Amiga Computing
Realistically, if you have got an A1200 and a copy of Pond on disk, there is little point in buying it again on CD. But if you have not got an A1200 and are speculating over the CD32 then this prize platforming product is definitely worth your guppy eggs.
Amiga Format
There is not denying this is a great game, one of the best. But this is CD. So why does it cost more? Why weren’t James Pond and Aquatic Games bunged on free?
CU Amiga
When all is said and done, though, the game is much the same. To my mind, Robocod will always be one of the finest Amiga platform titles, and is most definitely something that should sit on every CD32 owner's CD rack.
The One
It's good fun so if you're about to buy a CD32 and are wondering what to get in your first batch of games then wonder no more.
Amiga Dream
Cette version ressemble trait pour trait à la version 1200. Les graphismes sont en 256 couleurs et les animations plus que belles. Le jeu est toujours aussi jouable. Vous aurez droit à des musiques de qualité CD et à un fabuleu dessin animée en guise d'introduction, c'est peut-être inutile mais tout de même très sympa.
Amiga Joker
Die hübsche Grafik mit den Knuddel-Sprites und Parallax-Scrolling in Weichspülerqualität wußte bereits am 1200er zu beeindrucken, was also kann der CD-Agent, das seine Vorgänger nicht konnten? Nun, zum einen gibt es auf der Power-Konsole ein echtes Zeichentrick-Intro, zum anderen sieben zusätzliche und teilweise wirklich exzellente Musikstücke. Und weil auch die Steuerung durch die Zwei-Button-Bedienung des Joypads noch einen Zahn zugelegt hat, ist der neue Pond ganz klar der beste Pond!
High Score
James Pond är utan tvivel ett spel tillverkat för 16 bitsmaskin men ljudet - det är magnifikt.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
The full-screen full motion video is extremely pixelized. The music is good and graphics are colorful. Gameplay is a bit choppy. The game doesn't belong on the 32-bit Amiga system.
Amiga Power
We are going to have to do an awful lot better than this for a flagship game if the CD32 is not going to be killed by mockery and derision before it gets a chance to come to proper life.
