After a long night of celebration & grog swilling, Billie just wants to climb into a hammock. But Maria has other ideas. "Clean up all those empty grog bottles while dancing a hornpipe," Maria tells Billie.

Explore Billie's grade 3 listed pirate hideout, avoid long drops off ledges & the strange sea creatures imported illegally from the dark waters of the Southeasterly Oceans, & collect those drained bottles of grog.... all whilst dealing with a crisis of identity.

This is also a small nod to Jet Set Willy - I wanted to create something similar in Bitsy.

As someone who's also attempted to make some sort of 2-D platformer in!!!!!!!! This must've taken so much hard work!!! The puzzles of moving around are great! I love this!!!!!


Thanks for the comments everyone. :) The thing to be aware of with the drops is if it's higher than 2 blocks/sprites and  you go over the edge it's game over.

i love the music and the puzzles, tho i keep dying lol

I like what you did with the stairs! And I love the game, even if I keep dying. 

Neat!  I liked the conveyor belts for a kind of puzzle. 

Whew those's a loooong way down :P

The music is kinda haunting~ (/grog induced...?? It would be neat if it gets more and more distorted as you collect/empty some grog.)
