SummaryCharismatic, original platform fun with lots of surprises
The GoodJames Pond himself was a lovable hero, with some great facial expressions and abilities. The enemies are varied across the levels, with my personal favourite being the birds on the games level, with playing cards for wings. Hidden sections abound, rewarding you for taking risks with extra lives and points. Many levels had a secret exit, and this ensured that the game's fun could continue after you completed it.
The BadThe controls weren't 100% responsive, and some people felt that it was too unclear as to the correct route through. It had one of those annoying levels which had you jumping across the roof of the platforms of a moving train.
