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

"An unusual, and well written, attempt at an IRC simulator. Some slight inherent parser quirks don't detract from an otherwise enjoyable game. Recommended."

6 people commented on this game (newest first):

Wow! The people in the chatroom felt very genuine to begin with, it was only after exhausting some dialogue I could tell otherwise. A very creative little game that I imagine took quite a while to pull off.

Very good implementation of a chat program. Can get a bit frustrating when you're not choosing the right words to progress but I got there and was glad I persevered.

Some excellent ideas that play directly to the strengths of the medium. Occasionally, the 'puzzles' are difficult enough that they become frustrating and break the immersion. But overall, this is an interesting and worthwhile experiment in using AGS for interactive fiction.

WOW! Just wow. Amazing game.

A very interesting chatroom simulation. The parser is very polished, and immersion is top notch.
This game is short but very rewarding, play it!

One of my favourites from the OROW compo :). I normally hate text parsers, but this one worked in really drawing me in. Great job, JBurger :D
