James Pond was followed by two sequels; James Pond 2: Codename Robocod and James Pond 3: Operation Starfish. There was also a spin-off sports-themed game The Aquatic Games and a cameo in Rolo to the Rescue. James Pond returned in James Pond in the Deathly Shallows for the iPhone and the iPad on June 30th 2011. In September 2013, Gameware Europe, who acquired the James Pond license in 2003, launched a Kickstarter for a new game in the series, James Pond – Pond is Back!, featuring the game’s original designer, Chris Sorrell. The Kickstarter was cancelled on October 7, 2013 as the funding target looked unlikely to be achieved.
