The overall result is a delightful, charming, and relaxing affair. It’s a Sunday afternoon television of a game, and goodness me, does that have a place. It’s funny, daft, and the look is incessantly fantastic. Backgrounds are beautifully drawn, characters are well animated, and the voice cast are all modestly strong. And it’s got Tom Baker in it. I had a thoroughly lovely time.
Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet is a charming and entertaining point-and-click adventure game, with logical puzzles, a lighthearted story, and truly hilarious dialogue.
Highly amusing throughout, with a heavy dose of fantastically dry British humour and plenty of loveable characters, Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet is a joy to play through from start to finish. Combined with cavalcade of smart puzzles that hardly ever get too frustrating, as well as gorgeous presentation values and very impressive voice acting, this is easily one of the most enjoyable adventures of 2016.
Featuring a marvelous vocal work, a fun and humorous plot and two distinct control systems, The Fowl Fleet could improve its unbalanced difficulty in some puzzles and feature some more engaging missions but let there be no doubt that the point and click adventure genre is alive and well on the Switch.

GOOD - Nelly Cootalot is worth a look if you are a fan of games like Maniac Mansion or Monkey Island. The story is just adult enough for older audiences to enjoy and for kids to still get a kick out of the humor. Hit and miss controls slightly hamper the experience, but overall it’s still a fun time.
