James Pond makes grand return, comes to iOS

James Pond is one of the earliest games I ever remember playing and I have a distinct fondness for it, so I'm quite pleased to see that the British platforming series has made a comeback with the iOS platform as its new home. 

James Pond in the Deathly Shallows is on the App Store for a mere $0.99 and seems to keep the spirit of the original titles alive, as if the terrible and only vaguely fish-related punnery wasn't enough of a clue. This time around, Pond is navigating underwater mazes rather than platforming. 

While I'd love to see a game in the vein of the old ones, I'm glad to see the character back, if only for pure nostalgic reasons.
