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!

AGS Panel Review

"This is a cute and very original game. Despite its small size, it features some nice special effects, and a dialogue that will make you smile. The puzzles are simple, bordering on rudimentary, and there is a certain amount of running back and forth involved. Furthermore, there is dialogue missing at points where you expect some. Still, for such a short game, this is a remarkable effort. "

Beautiful game! The quasi-dynamic music was my favorite point in this game, but everything is awesome. Too bad it's so short...

Good day. I am once again very pleased with the overall enjoyment of this game, especially the swell graphics and the venturesome soundtrack, but nonetheless there is one demerit that still remains:

Due to the lack of the toolbelt, which - as a matter of course - might have contained some heavy equipment designed to confront foes of any kind, it was once again rendered impossible to whip some lunatic alien geek arse.

I sincerely hope this issue will be addressed in the very next of your games.

Yours sincerely,

A very simple and polished game that will make you smile for sure. The graphics for the enviroment are really cute to look at and the music, albeit simple, is superb!

I'm a fan of the graphics, dialogue and easy controls. Unfortunately, the game is too short and lacked substance, and the 'puzzles' couldn't have been more obvious.
Given that it was done in one week I find it fairly impressive. I would love to see another Manboy game, just as long as it plays a little longer and has some more creative puzzles.

Charming graphics, and a cute, fun game overall. Nice job! :)

Looks pretty cute. I'm downloading now, just wanted you to know the download link was entered wrong- someone forgot to put the colon (:) in the url (it was typed http// instead of http://) so the url the link above points to ends up being http://http//rapidshare......

Lovely little game! The graphics are cute and the music adds to the immersion. The game play was a little simple. But still nice play.
