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

"Whatever can go wrong will go wrong, and at the worst possible time, in the worst possible way" - Murphy's Law


Murphy's Salvage is one of the largest mostly-human salvage operations in Earthspace. Murphy personally owns a fleet of ships with highly skilled crews... but we're not talking about them. Meet the crew of ship 0096632-B or as the crew calls it, the "But her".
Mission 01: Just My Luck

But enough background! This is about one day in the life of Wombat Rowe, a scrapper that just wants to get paid. Apparently that is just too much to ask when you're three weeks into a mission on a Screaming Metal Deathtrap out in the Middle of Nowthere Nebula. But Wombat is a resourceful girl... she can get through, right?

Final Version 1.3 is up. It fixes all of the bug in the previous version that could cause the walking dead!

AGS Panel Review

"Funny, well written characters enliven a slightly mundane adventure. The graphics, while functional, are rather sterile, with the character graphics lacking extra animations. Hint system is a nice touch. A little rough around the edges, but shows promise."

Must say I really enjoyed this game. The only drawback for me was a bug in the game, and that I wanted more. It's a shame it was a short as it was. Will be keeping a keen eye on your future endeavours

I like it, I think you did a good job :) It's probably more fun for a casual audience, but you definitely achieved a grounding for making a bigger, better point & click game! Thanks for the oppurtunity to do the music - it was a lot of fun!

This game really doesn't seem to be worth playing. Most annoying of all is that a glitch prevents you from saving, and eventually prevents you from going any further in the game.

Overall, the characters are bland. the scoring system is inscrutable, and the puzzles don't require any thinking at all, it's all just a matter of picking up the right item and clicking it on the right location.

A fixing of the glitches might help.
