Hmm looks like a ripoff? He is showing pictures for ROBOCOD there saying it's fred the fish or some such shit. He also has AMC, which is , AFAIK, by Jeff minter.

Can anybody clarify this up? Is this guy full of it?

He seems to have used the James Pond graphics to make his PD game The Adventures of Freddy Fish and Attack Of The Mutant Camels looks like a version of Minter's Revenge Of The Mutant Camels (or whatever it's called).

A ripoff, then!
The graphics ? That game IS James Pond (My bad for calling it Robocod). Look at it.

that's a blatant ripoff alright. I can't see why he thought of slipping through it, considering how famous James Pond is among amigans.

Well I don't consider it a rip-off, it's only a hobby, he never sold it. Just seems like he coded a game and needed some sprites and they were easily available.

i dont c it to be a problem he said he made the game for his daughter or some shit. he's used sprites from all sorts of games by the looks of things.

i dont know why he didnt just let her play the real james pond though

i consider that attack of the mutant camels game too much of a ripoff. the james pond one for me was tolerable but come on really i dont see why either games were made when the originals are fine as they are.

Do someone remember the Game Series "Crackers Revenge" on the good old Commodore 64?
This Games were completely desigend by using ripped Grafix and Sprites and Sounds.

Well, I think, if he like to modify games, and when they won't become commercial, why not ?
