The puzzles aren't particularly difficult, but the humour is top notch and, in a bizarre twist of fanficilicious proportions, Tom Baker is your sidekick instead of the other way around.

A lovely little point-and-click adventure. Nothing too tricky, but thoroughly enjoyable, utterly British (I mean, Grockle Island? Can't be too many people outside Devon who knows what that means. Apart from me) and blessed with a voiceover from Tom Baker on typically mad-eyed form. Great stuff. The ending song's a bit of a cracker, too.

10/10. A warm story plus amazing voice acting! It reminds me of the good old adventures with Guybrush Threepwood, the mighty pirate.

Ευχάριστο, ευφάνταστο, αυθεντικό και πολύ τίμιο όσον αφορά στη χρηματοδότηση που αξίωσε. Αυτή η πρόταση θεωρώ ότι περιγράφει όσο καλύτερα γίνεται το “A Fowl Fleet”, ένα σύντομης διάρκειας adventure game που διαθέτει έναν γεμάτο και ζωντανό κόσμο, συνοδεία εξαιρετικών voice overs και πολύ αρμονικής μουσικής ενορχήστρωσης.

A pleasant, imaginative, original and fair –regarding the amount of money it targeted on Kickstarter- adventure game. It doesn’t last long, but features a rich and vivid world, accompanied by excellent voice overs and harmonious music orchestration.

Nelly Cootalot so thoroughly embraces its retro inspirations, that an uncharitable person might call it out-dated. However, it breezes along with such warm-hearted charm, boundless likability, and its none-more-British sense of humour that it's hard to criticise. It's populated with a cast of great characters, with the eponymous Nelly as the pirate heroine out to save all bird-kind from the schemes of her nemesis, Baron Widebeard. The puzzles are fair, logical, and satisfying to solve; you'll rarely spend time trying random inventory items with everything in sight and are unlikely to be forced to consult a walkthrough. Don't forget to consult your fowl companion, Sebastian, for some of the games funniest lines and hints if you lose track of what you're doing.

This game is an easy recommendation for fans of pirate adventures of yesteryear (you know the ones...) and point-and-click games in general. You'll spend your entire playthrough with a big smile on your face or your money back (maybe).

This game is hilarious, the puzzles are fairly easy, so the story is kept at a steady pace. Great voice acting, and fantastic art style. The only cons are that i finished it in 5 hours. Would have loved for it to have been longer.

If you love British humor, I highly recommend this game. If you love humorous games at all, I recommend this. If you love games with charm, I recommend this game. If you love talking birds, I recommend this. If you'd love for me to stop saying "if you love", then go buy this game. I'll stop. You'll see. Go on and try it, I'll wait. Did you buy it yet? Maybe if I use the proper scented candle on you, you won't be able to resist. How about if I offer you some Crabgrass Juice?

Seriously, this is a fun, well-made point and click adventure, without the overly obscure solutions that some games have. There are a couple of tricky achievements that can be missed, but if you save every so often, you can go back and get them later. The rest of them are pretty straight-forward.

Now for the game's CON - wait, where did I put it? I know I had a CON sitting here somewhere. Oh well, guess the game doesn't have any cons.

So if you want a game that will put a smile on your face (or make you giggle like a silly person), then buy this game anyway. ACT NOW! Privateers are awaiting your calls on shell phones!

Posted: March 22
Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet surprised me. The game's story/setting is charming/quirky and I enjoyed it a lot more than I was expecting. There are quite a few funny moments in the game as well. The story might not appeal to everyone but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The puzzles are pretty clever and well designed. Unlike some point and click adventure games the puzzles aren't obtuse where you have to guess your ways to the correct answer. The game is just really well made.

I really only had two complaints with Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet. First the game is kind of on the shorter side. The game lasts around five to six hours. Since I was really enjoying the game I wish it was a little longer. The other problem is that for the most part I found the game to be kind of easy. You probably aren't going to be really challenged by the game.

Although not totally necessary, I would recommend playing the original game first. You won't be lost if you don't play the first game but the game does sometimes address things that happen in the first game so you might be slightly confused a couple times in the game. The original game can be found online for free.

If you like point and click adventure games I think you will enjoy Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet.

Note: I received a review copy from the developer but received no other compensation for this review.

This game is like a cute younger sibling to Monkey Island.

I backed Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet on Kickstarter, because I was a fan of the previous Nelly Cootalot game. I loved the background art, but was skeptical on how well the new character designs were going to work. Playing the game, the character designs did really grow on me, so I'd say don't write it off if you have the same initial issue. The puzzles are typical for a point-and-click adventure, with nothing too challenging. Really, this game is about its great sense of humor. If you like your games to be a bit clever and adorable, this one is on point. It certainly is one of the punnier games I've played.

Also, Tom Baker as Sebastian is too charming. Such a great companion to have through the game.

This game is quite clearly the product of someone with a passion for both adventure games and humor. Top notch production (with SUPERLATIVE voice acting and music), great puzzles and design, and wonderful story/characters with some of the funniest dialogue from a videogame yet. A must-play for any fan of this genre!

EDIT: Just now officially completed the game, lemme tell you BIG SMILE ON MY FACE! I will say at around 5 or so hours it's a bit short, but in my own personal opinion it's better to go short than to outstay your welcome. This is gonna go down as one of my top of 2016 for sure, and I CANNOT WAIT for the next Nelly Cootalot game, fantastic effort all around, pick this game up today!

I'm really enjoying this game so far, I've played two hours (will update the review as I continue playing) and solved a few of the early puzzles. The puzzles so far are logical and the humor is great. The graphics are well done, it runs really well on Linux and the voice acting is very engaging, particularly Nelly and Sebastian. 9/10 so far.

Update: I completed the game after about 8 hours. Its a really fun game with lots of humour and a good story. The voice acting is really well done throughout and the hand drawn graphics suit the game and fit well with the story. Right clicking on all the clickable items results in some very funny descriptions. I would have liked the game to be longer, its a bit short and could be completed in about 6 hours if you don't fully explore all the areas. It has some replayability as the achievements are all actually achievable, so I will play through again to get the ones I missed.

Overall an enjoyable adventure game that would have been even better if it had a few more areas to explore and was a bit longer. 8/10.

This is a charming and surprising game, sufficiently so it's prompted me to create my first Steam review. I purchased it as a Kickstarter backer and I was hoping for an amusing little adventure for the low price I paid, but was prepared for disappointment (I've backed Godus, Massive Chalice, Planetary Annihilation after all...).

I didn't expect to be so relaxed and smiling within a couple of minutes of starting, or the quality of voice acting to be so high (Doctor Who ! The main character's great, also).

It's not a hard game - you won't be stuck for hours in this one trying to collect Tea, and No Tea simultaneously - but it is a labour of love that's produced a charming and fun adventure with a consistent and pleasant style of its own.

Overall Nelly Cootalot is to adventure games and Kickstarter, what FTL is to roguelikes and Kickstarter.

What a marvelous game. Good level of puzzle, with plenty of pointing and clicking. I thought being able to talk to Sebastian to remind you what still needed completing was a great help and just enough of a hint.
