James Bond (C64)
James Bond is a 4-level action game ported from the Atari 8-bit.
The C64 port seems a bit easier, but still rather hard. Also, many comments and screenshots, as well as the fact that most C64 gamers didn't have manuals, suggest that they didn't even know about level 2 and thought of this game as just another Moon Patrol clone.
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 arranger was apparently new to the SID chip, especially since instead of using its built-in decay feature, he merely changes the sustain (as was necessary on POKEY).
The only song was recorded from VICE 3.2 with the model C64 old NTSC. Whether James Bond (C64) was officially published in PAL regions is not known yet.
