About This Game
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).
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.
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'.
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.
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.
- Streamlined point & click interface.
- Improved launcher app.
- Bad jokes replaced with good jokes (we wish).
- New "business"

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! HD user review
Nelly Cootalot's delightfully silly adventures are now available in HD and with voice acting! It's the perfect excuse to replay this short, charming pirate adventure. The visual upgrade is welcome, and the voice acting is a lot of fun, with Nelly voiced by her real-life self and mostly everyone else voiced by Alasdair Beckett-King, the game's creator. It turns out surprisingly well, although not necessarily with the female characters. I'm also grateful that Alasdair didn't voice Nelly himself :)
So I had seen this series here and there while rummaging around Steam but I always passed it over. I'm a judge a book by its cover kinda guy when it comes to games (terrible, I know) and I thought, from a few quick glances, that this was just some kind of cute kids game. It is cute but I was very wrong on it being a kids game. It manages to pull off a lot of dirty jokes without being vulgar and manages to still be funny, which is a rare thing to do. After playing it I highly recommend this game to lovers of P&C games, especially fans of the Monkey Island series!
An experiment in how many voices one man can do.

Super charming game. Nice puzzles and humour. I'll be picking up the Fowl Fleet for sure!
This is a totally adorable little adventure game. It's "inspired" by Monkey Island without being a total ripoff.
One of the best AGS adventures, now even better. The soundtrack by Mark "Mods" Lovegrove is one of my all-time favourites, and the brilliant voice acting in this HD release is well worth the ridiculously low price alone. The distinctive art style looks better than ever after the upscale.
It's a short game, as in, i beat it in less than two hours, but the game is cheap and worth the price, the puzzles aren't too hard except for the Cipher one that took me a while to figure out and there is a charm to this game.
Nifty little game, simple graphics, but effective. Enjoyed playing, and the puzzles were logical. The only bug bear was that the music kept cutting in, (even though it was turned off), and I had to quit and restart ,to reset it a few times. Other than that, it's a fun, but short, game.

Love Love Love Nelly! Cant wait for More NellyTime! Wish the games were longer. Great Adventure Games. Thanks Ginger Pirate Man.
Nice and short game! Ideal for some fun time.
I backed Fowl Fleet on Kickstarter and enjoyed the game a lot. Kickstarter backers were offered Spoonbeaks for free, a very kind offer.
I finally picked this up after enjoying Fowl Fleet. This updated version of the original 2007 game is just as delightful, and well worth the 2 bucks. I did find some of the puzzles a bit less logical than FF's, but the all-ages whimsy is right there. The graphics update is spot on. As a side note, If Alasdair Beckett-King wanted a second career in voiceover, he could dominate the industry. Although he and Nelly are the only two voice actors, you would never know that one guy was voicing every NPC.
Good game for problem solving
Brilliant game, absolutely loved it - and being from the north east myself, I loved the accent used, especially some of the 'slang' words, and ways we say them. A funny, well done game, quite short, but hugely entertaining - Can't wait to play the next one!
Worth every penny!
