Booty - PC

Booty was originally released by Firebird Software and written by John F Cain in 1984 for the ZX Spectrum computer.

The remake remains faithful to the original, having the same room layouts, platforms and nasties to negotiate. The graphics have been re-drawn, sound effects added and yes, that awful music if still awful!

The game is set on a pirate ship called the Black Galleon which has 20 holds full of booty. Playing the part of Jim the cabin boy, you must search the ship and collect 125 pieces of booty before you can escape. Once the 125 pieces have been collected, a golden key will be placed somewhere in one of the holds. Collecting this key will allow Jim to escape with the booty. Jim only has 60 seconds to find the key though, so be quick.

Booty was written using Blitz Basic, so should work fine on new PCs.

New Version 2015

In 2015 I released a new fixed version that removes a random rat from one of the room. Uner some circumstances, this rat could stop you completeling the game!
