This game follows the adventures of the anthropomorphic fish and secret agent, James Pond, in another whimsical platforming adventure. In James Pond 3: Operation Starfish, the storyline takes a cosmic turn as James Pond is tasked with thwarting the evil plans of his nemesis, Dr. Maybe, who has relocated his operations to the Moon. The game's setting in outer space introduces new gameplay mechanics and environments, making it a unique entry in the series.

A significant addition in this installment is Pond's ability to jump much higher and further, a nod to the reduced gravity of the lunar environment. This changes the dynamics of platforming, allowing for more expansive and vertical level designs. The game features a variety of gadgets and power-ups that Pond can use, including suits that give him special abilities, like the ability to fly or stick to surfaces. These gadgets add depth to the gameplay, requiring players to strategize about the best ways to use them to overcome challenges.

One of the hallmarks of the James Pond series is its humor, and James Pond 3: Operation Starfish does not disappoint. The game is filled with puns, pop culture references, and tongue-in-cheek humor, contributing to its light-hearted and enjoyable atmosphere. Today, James Pond 3: Operation Starfish is remembered as a creative and entertaining platformer from the Sega MegaDrive era. Its unique blend of humor, inventive gameplay, and charming presentation have secured its place as a beloved title in the James Pond series and among retro gaming enthusiasts.
