Much improved graphics, the full island to explore and lots of secrets and surprises to find!

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

/ or E = Talk

Enter = Start

WASD = Move

Update 2022-02-12 - Uploaded new version with polished sprites and a couple of small bug fixes, added E as an alternate "Talk" key.

This is a demo of our upcoming NES game (will run on an emulator or actual NES hardware if you've got a flash cart!) Enjoy, and if you want to download it or follow the project, here is the itch.io page for it! Since this is a demo, it is not representative of the final product, which will just get more polished and sexier!

Note on compatibility: The emulator I've wrapped the ROM with uses Javascript (which is pretty demanding), and therefore may run slow on older systems. You can also try another browser to see if it helps. Failing that, head to itch.io to download it and play it on a full emulator.


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 lost to the sea, and 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!
  • Wonder at the tremendous marvels of how jiggly 8 bits can be!

A brand new Open-World Exploration Game for the

 Nintendo Entertainment System!

All I've encountered are juvenile references to boobs and butts, no spicy artwork so far, but I don't mind. The controls handle alright, and I was able to find the "end" but I've yet to fully explore the place. I say this is alright.

This review will be critical, but respectful:


+ The game is kind of cute and vaguely nostalgic


- Dialogue crashes game immediately

- Controls are not intuitive

Your inspirations are obvious. But they're more mimicry than inspiration; you do nothing new with Zelda and Pac-man tropes making this design approach boring and frankly lazy. I won't even comment on the perverted marketing angle but what little sex appeal there is here is too lacking to tantalize horny players into forgiving the glaring flaws.

the controls aren't very intuitive and the game crashed when i tried to reload.

Holmfry responds:

Thanks for your review. The crash may be an issue with the browser or Java may just not be cooperating with your PC. The game is available for download as a NES rom at https://holmadegames.itch.io/bustina, recommended for the best experience on all hardware.

The wall collision made it frustrating to squeeze through spaces before an enemy'd get you. Seems fun so far though,

Holmfry responds:

Thanks for the review! I'm looking into the wall collisions :)

great game, but I would recommend using E to talk. other than that, it's fantastic.

Holmfry responds:

So glad you liked it! :) Thanks for the review!

Update: I've just uploaded an update that improves the graphics dramatically, and also adds E as a talk button as you suggested! :)
