Booty is a highly playable and addictive game, loads of fun and well worth its asking price. Read Review
The graphics are smooth moving and the sound is excellent... The game has quite an addictive quality which is an indication that it should do well. Read Review
A brilliant title screen sets the mood well and there is a catchy little tune. Quite a lot of screens for your money as well - some of them quite good, others best forgotten. Read Review
The game is unusual, nicely executed, addictive and at £2.50, it's a steal. Read Review
The graphics are excellent with half the game portrayed in the increasingly popular style reminiscent of Sabre Wulf and Pyjamarama. Read Review
Well, shiver me timbers and splice the mainbrace and pass the grog, me hearties. Here be the greatest pirate adventure of them all, aboard that scourge of the Seven Seas - the dreaded Black Galleon. Feast yer eyes on the "Booty" - ful treasure stored in 20 holds. There be pirates, parrots and fun galore. If you don't like it, matey, we'll hang ye by the highest yard-arm!!
Jim the Cabin Boy must make his way below decks to collect various items of booty (automatically picked up when he walks past it) strewn around the ship.
When you have collected all the items from the Black Galleon's 20 holds, you will be given 45 seconds to locate the Bronze key to the next pile of booty. Clearing all booty a second and third (impossible!) time causes a search or the Silver and Gold keys, each increasing the game's speed and hazards.
Jim will meet an untimely death if he falls through a trap door, drowns, is bitten by a ship's rat, or pecked by one of the Captain's parrots, or cut down by a Ghost Pirate, or blown up (some pieces of booty are booby-trapped so step lively, mates) or steps through a hold door into mid-air (heh! heh!).
You may press any key to start or wait for a demonstration. Select keys or joystick. You can define your own keys for left, right, up, down and enter hold.
Jim the Cabin Boy picks up keys by walking into them. Cabins are numbered and can only be entered by using the matching key.
To transfer to a different hold (another screen), press the Enter Hold key (or Fire on your joystick) while Jim is standing directly in front of the hold door.
