Game Reviews

James Pond is your host in this wacky spoof of popular Olympic events that comes complete with original games as well. From the play menu, you can choose to compete in events unlike anything ever seen before!

Practice makes perfect so luckily there is a mode to help you on those really tough events. Otherwise, you can head straight into the series. Several different events, ranging from speedy races to reflex testers can be found in The Aquatic Games. Lush graphics and fluid animation compliment each of the water sports, further adding to the appeal of this track game with a twist!

Let the games begin The Aquatic Games, that is! James Pond returns with his friends, the Aquabats! There's eight grueling events to test your amphibious athletic skills, along with three different difficulty settings designed to hone your competitive skills. Test your endurance at the 100m Splash; the Hop, Skip, and Jump; Shell Shooting and many others. Watch out for bad sports out to ruin the games for everyone!

People say:


This game tries to capitalize on the Track & Field theme using the familiar James Pond characters. The game uses the proven punch-the-buttons-as-fast-as-you-can-to-build-up-speed play mechanics. Most ot the competitive modes were too challenging without a rapid fire joystick, and the events were, all in all, boring.


In the past. James Pond was a great tongue-in-cheek type of kid's game that was also a lot of fun to play. Now, while the humor is still there, the game is no longer a kid's game as the difficulty is set way above what a kid would have patience for. On the other hand, it just isn't a fun game for the older player.


I like the concept behind Aquatic Games. The graphics are very cute and the game will appeal to younger players. The game play, however is far too difficult for younger players and makes the game unbalanced. There are a few really cool events, but the majority are frustrating and won't be very fun for most players.


This is a kid's game with adult difficulty. I can't see this game appealing to the people who would play it consistently. Kids will have a hard time completing most of the levels (would you bounce a ball on YOUR nose for over four minutes?), and some levels are insanely difficult. Don't get this for young kids!

Take part in the competitions which are far from being sportive but very cheerful. This is the game from the teratology about James Pond, a crazy frog which finished all bad guys and decided to do his favorite things – water sports.

The Olympic games among natatorial animals. What can be brighter, merrier and quicker!:) The competitions vary in their kinds and singularity. You will have to participate in 100 meter running, jumping and … fish feeding. The surprise is that if you really want to win you will need train a lot. Why? Simply because the oftener you press the button, the faster you run. Don’t break the keypad!

You will have to compete:

  1. 100 meter running combined with obstacle swimming
  2. Handball on the beach
  3. Broad jumps
  4. Acrobatic jumps
  5. Feeding hungry fish
  6. Air balloon shooting
  7. One wheel bike racing
  8. Frog running

The game was an aquatic-themed parody of games like Konami's Track & Field. Due to the nature of its gameplay, Aquatic Games is something of an anomaly in the James Pond franchise, with all the other games in the series being side-viewed platform games.
