A downloadable rom for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"It's like Pac-Man and The Legend of Zelda had a very sexy baby!"  -myself

Young intrepid pirate lass Bustina set sail on the high seas looking for adventure, and she got a big juicy handful of it...

Caught in a huge storm, her ship was lost to the sea, and she washed ashore on a desert island!

Now, armed with only the pj's she was wearing and her big ol' wits, she should be looking for a way off the island, but she's more concerned with getting her hands on some nice big booty!


  • Explore a huge, open-world island as you traverse different terrains full of mazes, tricks, traps and hungry creatures!
  • A full original soundtrack by Logana!
  • Meet the islands main residents, the monkeys, who all have something "interesting" to say.
  • Find hidden treasures and other fun secrets as you search for booty... and an escape from the island!
  • An original soundtrack by Logana!
  • This rom is playable on actual NES hardware (flashing hardware required) or your favourite emulator!
  • Wonder at the tremendous marvels of how jiggly 8 bits can be!
