General Information

Available on:PCMay 22, 2019

Developer: Alasdair Beckett-King

Publisher: Application Systems Heidelberg

Genre: Adventure

NELLY COOTALOT Nelly Cootalot is the stupidly named pirate adventurer with a heart of gold. Uncover corruption and wanton punning in this HD revival of a classic freeware adventure game. The revenue of the game - after fees and taxes are deducted - will go to the RSPB, a British charity taking care of our feathered friends (birds). STORY Nelly Cootalot, fearsome pirate and lover of tiny and adorable creatures, is charged by the spirit of a dead buccaneer to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a fleet of birds known as spoonbeaks. Her adventure will bring her face to face with the nefarious Baron Widebeard as she uncovers corruption and wanton punning in the Barony of Meeth. KEY FEATURES Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! is your opportunity to: Rescue endangered and unusually named wildfowl. Acquire morally dubious items on behalf of minor aristocrats. Intercept the private correspondances of a daredevil pilot. Come to the aid of downtrodden supernatural beings. Be confused by obscure colloquialisms. Borrow facial hair from long-dead pirates. Wantonly misuse the word 'borrow'. BACKGROUND Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! was originally released by Alasdair Beckett-King hundreds of years ago in 2007. The game started out as a birthday present for his girlfriend and got wildly out of hand. In 2016, he even made another Nelly game called Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet. The HD remastering of Spoonbeaks Ahoy! brings the original game back to life, with a streamlined interface and loads more pixels and voice over (!) for the first time. Read the details below! Alasdair has been tweaking and polishing (and breaking and fixing) Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! for many months now. 1920x1080 HD resolution and a FULL VOICE OVER in English are the obvious highlights. Here is the full list of the improvements we've made to the original 2007 game. NEW RESOLUTION The game now runs in full 1920x1080 HD, (as well as other widescreen resolutions). This is flipping massive compared to the tiny, square original graphics (see trailer video). FULL VOICE ACTING (ENGLISH ONLY) Extremely cheap voice acting by Alasdair Beckett-King, real Nelly and literally no one else. Think of it as a director's commentary where he got to do a load of dodgy accents. (Yes, this feature CAN be switched off.) SUPPORT FOR MORE OPERATING SYSTEMS Full support for macOS and Linux as well as all recent Windows systems.  OTHER IMPROVEMENTS Streamlined point & click interface. Improved launcher app. Bad jokes replaced with good jokes (we wish). New "business" model

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD Reviews

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD, makes all the necessary improvements a freeware title from 2007 would need, and is served at a price that's almost nonexistent. It's funny, it has a relaxing pace, and, as a whole, it's perfect for a few hours of old-school, point-and-click fun.

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD proves that charm does not age, but some of the gameplay mechanics in this point-and-click adventure are a little long in the tooth. Those that can overcome this facet will have a great time on this swashbuckling adventure.

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD is an oldschool point and click adventure with minor annoyances but funny gameplay as well.
