In his second adventure, James Pond must save Santa Claus's toy workshop from Dr. Maybe. Pond has been equipped with a robotic suit--hence the code name "RoboCod"--due to the challenges of the mission. It includes an Inspector Gadget-style stretch device, which he can use to view higher areas or claw onto ceilings and slide across them.

This run saves 3049 frames over the previous one but is longer because it completes the two secret levels. Time savings come from faster boss fights, avoidance of unnecessary bonuses, better HP management, and more optimized movement.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
