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.

In his second adventure, James Pond must retrieve the toys Dr. Maybe has stolen. Pond has been armed with an Inspector Gadget-style stretch device, which he can use to view higher areas or claw onto ceilings so as to slide across them.

If you noticed the pun in the title, it may not come as a surprise that the game's title screen music is an upbeat rendition of the RoboCop title theme.

Archanfel defeats the nefarious Dr. Maybe and retrieves Santa's presents in 24 minutes and 20.46 seconds.

We also have a run of James Pond 3: Operation Starfish.

The intended movie to be uploaded. Sorry for mistake

That's another 3 frames done. Hopefully that's the end of this, too late to save Xmas anyway.

The most recent version of my JP2 submission, with all 3 of Archanfel's improvements recreated, and optimised to the best of my ability.

This does not include the 2 extra optional levels as Evil_3D suggested, as this can be considered any%.
