James Bond (C64)
James Bond is a 4-level action game ported from the Atari 8-bit platform. The C64 port seems a bit easier, but still rather hard.
Most C64 gamers, especially Europeans, did not have manuals and still think that this game has only one level, without goal, and is altogether just another Moon Patrol clone. Some also wrongly list it under the name of its first level, Diamonds are Forever.
The music was ported from the early Atari 800 version, the sound effects from the final one. The latter are split over only 2 voices, since the third one is used as a random generator. Some sound effects have also become shorter, use only triangle and sawtooth waves (rather than the louder and more complex pulse waves), and the satellite in level 1 shoots in only one voice, all providing a more eerie atmosphere.
The only song was recorded from VICE 3.2 with the model C64 old NTSC.
