Review of 'Jolly Roger'

I'm not sure if this game was written in Basic, but it looks like so. And along with Alcatraz I and II by Barry Jones, well, like with all Barry Jones games, good ideas turn into boring, sleepy moments. I really wanted to like almost all his games, because they all look cute, with nice ideas, but unfortunately they are are painfully slow, and that, of course, kills the mood most of the times. Jolly Roger ain't different. But it is still a nice entertaining piece of software with a cute pirate atmosphere to it, worthy of checking out.
