The Aquatic Games (Super Aquatic Games on the Super NES) is a sports video game by Millennium Software. It featured pseudo-Olympic sports starring the video game character James Pond, better known for his series of side-view platform games.
The game is an aquatic-themed parody of games like Konami's Track & Field. Aquatic Games was the last game starring James Pond to be released for the Amiga A500. Though the next game (James Pond 3: Operation Starfish) also appeared on the Amiga, it was only compatible with the newer range of 32-bit Amigas (such as the A1200) which used the AGA chipset.
The game contains classical music pieces Ode to Joy (from Beethoven's 9th) in the title screen and Schubert's fish song "Die Forelle" during certain events. The rest of the music is composed by Richard Joseph.

GamePro gave the SNES version a generally positive review. They commented that the simplistic gameplay, cartoony graphics, and humorous sound effects make it a game that younger players would enjoy, while older players would find it unappealing.
