The AGS Panel is a team of AGS forum veterans who play all of the games here, and give them ratings from one to five cups. The rating system is as follows:
1 CupNot serious entertainment
2 CupsA reasonable game, worth a try
3 CupsA good game, worth playing
4 CupsA great game, well worth your time
5 CupsAn outstanding, must-play game!
Feel free to disagree with the panel's rating, and please don't be offended if you think your game has been under-rated!

(Why has my game been rated 1 cup?)

Close window
If your game has been rated 1 cup, please don't be offended! It's common for your first game release to get a 1-cup rating, due to the game having a lack of polish and flair -- which is understandable, because you're just getting started!

Please understand that the main purpose of the ratings is to help potential game players find high quality, bug-free games to play. You've probably learnt a lot about AGS as a result of making your first game -- so why not use that knowledge to start afresh, and do even better with your next game!

About this game

You are Baltazar, the reluctant familiar of a certain Lord von Thyraniamouse, a paranoid, selfcentered and incompetent illukemist. You have to help him in his search for vengence against the villagers nearby.


- Added even more dialogue.
- Added intro screen (Because some people have a hard time finding the skip-dialogue button: Enter. - So, there you know.)
- Made the intro and outro even longer.

For a one room game, it sure provides quite a challenge! Puzzles are fun, though the floating machine becomes quite bothersome when using it to try and figure out what to do next.

I enjoyed the game, though think 2 cups is the right rating.

Nice, but too difficult (I hate those machines !).
