Pirate adventure Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet launches on iOS
Heidelberg, Germany – Application Systems today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Nelly Cootalot 1.1, the company’s new adventure game title for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The game was selected by Apple as Best of Mac App Store 2016 and is now coming to iOS! Nelly Cootalot was created by award-winning British comedian and filmmaker Alasdair Beckett-King and boasts a fantastic voice cast including Tom Baker (Doctor Who). In this hilarious classical style point & click adventure game pirate heroine Nelly Cootalot sets sail to rescue birds hypnotised by the villainous Baron Widebeard.

Explore a charming hand-drawn world, meet outlandish characters and face perplexing challenges in search of the Treasure of the Seventh Sea. The game offers full voice acting in both English and German, with an incredible cast including the legendary Tom Baker (Doctor Who, Little Britain) and Thomas Reiner (Raumpatrouille Orion, Futurama). It also offers text localisation in French, Spanish and Italian.

Nice Quotes we’ve got for the Desktop version of the game:

Nelly Cootalot first appeared in the 2007 freeware game Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! Alasdair created this short game as a birthday present for his girlfriend, and it became a favourite on the indie adventure scene. In 2013 Alasdair ran a successful Kickstarter to fund a new stand-alone Nelly game. With the support of over 1000 backers, Alasdair teamed up with Application Systems Heidelberg in 2014. With ASH on board, the project rapidly grew in scale, adding cross-platform support, text localisation, German voice acting and tons more animation in glorious High Definition. The budget grew from the modest Kickstarter haul to a six figure sum, with a team of 45+ people across 4 countries. Blimey, we’ve been busy!
