OK, so usually I pick a less well-known game but the sheer awesomeness of probably the only amateur adventure in existence that is full or pirates but without being a Monkey Island ripoff forces me to choose it!

Nelly Cootalot is the story about pirates and saving a doomed species and most of all about fabulous adventuring. Just enjoy it, ye landlubber!

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. 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! The game features: English, French, German & Spanish Language Soundtrack by Mark "m0ds" Lovegrove 640x480 Resolution Verb Coin Interface 32bit Graphics & Anti-Aliased Sprites English & Spanish Language

Definitely a must play for anybody who is a fan of pirates or the pirate genre.

In short, gorgeous!

Excellent game! Love the art style.
Although some puzzles involved pixel-hunting, generally they were logical and well crafted.
A must-play!

One of the best AGS games I've played. Great light tone, a lot of good puzzles, many that were challenging without being unfair. Fun characters, witty dialogue, nice animations and a tight story. What more could you want?

There should be a special category for this game - like a Hall of Legends. It has all the ingredients that made Monkey Island famous, while the main character, the story and the settings have enough original traits to make the game keep out of the shadow of well known titles. With its rich enough variety of characters, the hand drawn images using just as much lines as to leave some room for your imagination, the light, playful music and the pace and turns of the story - it succeeds in pulling you into its world.
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.
