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

Inessa is woken by the smell of smoke. She races down the stair case to discover the workshop torched and no trace of her Master Loftus.

The townsfolk are convinced that a dragon must be responsible or that the crazy inventor must simply have blown himself up- but Inessa believes otherwise.

AUTHOR'S RANT:
This game is the first in what was intended as a four part series. I have discontinued this idea and present the game "as is" in the hope that some can find enjoyment.

AGS Panel Review

"A promising game with pleasant visuals and a lot of polish, though it's over almost as soon as it begins with no resolution."

Very good game! I am sad that the other parts wont come out. I enjoyed the game very much though, and can only imagine what happens next in the story.

A very well done game. It reminded me of Sierra games like King's Quest and Laura Bow. I really hope there's a part two soon!

The backgrounds where amazing, and I love the chicken-sprites. However, sometimes the characters don't fit the backgrounds.

The GUI is great, I did like the popup messages. The only thing I didn't like is that I had to click the down button to open the inventory.

I also did like the comic style cutscene at the ending, graphics and pacing where very good.

The only thing is that I dislike puzzles where you have to find a certain list of items to complete the game.

a disappointing ending as it was too abrupt and it could've led up to a satisfying "to be continued" than it did.

I enjoyed the art, though the cut scenes at the end seems rushed and could've been executed a better way. The backgrounds looked too blurry in some parts and could have been layered with some clarity in the foreground.

The music was fabulous and really suited the fantasy style to a tee.

Overall, I enjoyed the feel of the game and the promise of a grand adventure. I hope you can get reinspired to finish it as it does show some promise.

Nice little game, even if it's incomplete. Hope it will be continued. Very good animations and graphic style.

This is a very promising start for a series- it has nice graphics and a very interesting fantasy setting. The GUI takes some getting used to, but works well- and I liked the idea of being able to "buy hints". Graphics are good, but a bit inconsistent- the sharp pixelated look of some animated objects doesn't blend into the soft backgrounds, but I do like the style very much. All in all a definite "thumbs up"!
