Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy!
Public OpinionYou have already voted for this game, thanks.
About this gameNelly 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.
This is my first complete AGS game. It is around medium length, and should take a few hours to play. I made it for, and about, my girlfriend. She enjoyed it and I hope you will too!

Although some puzzles involved pixel-hunting, generally they were logical and well crafted.
And it's not so easy to escape its charms once you started playing because the story takes place in the time of eternal youth when there are no burdens and the Sun keeps rising in the horizon. According to that age, the main character is defined by a mix ofbravery and a positive outlook on life, expressed as humor. To have the attitude of the main character seems to be the message of the game. Then, as the hero, you would get the support of the majority and defeat the bad guy. Well, reality is a bit different, but it's not my place to say more of this here.
Concerning the other possible message of protecting the wildlife, I would point at the different attitude that Nelly has towards the cat. Sure, it's funny, but there's a difference.
But I don't think that this game will remain in your memory for its messages. It will remain for being a very well put together work of art and for the enjoyment that it brought you. For me it was a delight.
I want to translate your game in french.
If you agree, send me an email to this address:
and I contact you. Thank you. :)
Let us hope that this is not the last we've heard from Nelly as this would be a shame. Nelly is a real dish, so let's hope she makes a comeback!
A really unique graphic style, and very funny dialogs.
Music doesn't quite meet the high standards of other game aspects, but doesn't detract from (IMHO) the BEST AGS GAME EVER MADE!
You should try it!!
A must play!
One of the top AGS games I ever played!
