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

"Funny and well written, but slightly weak puzzles detract. The visual style is appealingly different."

24 people commented on this game (newest first):

This game was hilarious. The puzzles weren't perfect, but the great humour more than made up for that.

And now it was time for something completely different after I had finished the other serious Yahtzee adventures. This one, visually is mediocre (I don't care about few colors, but the sprite scaling was horrible as it moved far away) but doesn't spoil the fun. The riddles were crazy but somehow got me running around and seeing the solution. But great funny ideas. The best part of it is the dialogues and the insane humour. AMAZING STUFF!!!

This game was great from start to finish! The graphics & animation are wonderful and the puzzles are challenging but not extremely difficult.

The only problem was the lame music but it was still a wicked game!!

this is the best game made with ags (unless yahtzee is secretly cooking up another one). period.

Didn't really like this game. The main character looks like a white Guybrush Threepwood and the plot just didn't interest me very much. Didn't like character's motivation, nor the outcome at the end. I can see how some people would like this, but it just didn't do it for me.

I probably would have always tried making a game in AGS, whether I saw this game or not. This game DID, however, make me confident that awesome stuff can be achieved with the program. VERY nice atmosphere, and a great overall game to play. I'd love a sequel!
2004-02-04 04:14:37 by Kinoko
Brill! With some really tough puzzles.
2003-11-18 10:00:23 by Jane
A while ago Yahtzee said that he was packing up and not going to do any more games. Thank Genghis that he came back and released Odysseus Kent!! Excellent stuff.

A well written, well made game all around. If not for this, and the Rob Blanc games, I probably wouldn't have downloaded AGS and would certainly not be in the midst of making a game myself. Kudos.

Rolling Stones says "Greatest game ever 5/5"!
New York Times says "Holy crap! 10/10"!
Mitar says, this is a really good game, deserved the award it got.

0.0 Pinch me! This game just has to be a lucus (i.e. WONDERFULL)! it has to be! keep up the good work, oh master! lol.
Im off to the forum to get some tips!
2003-05-01 00:06:58 by SLaMgRInDeR
Awesome game, very well done!
2003-04-26 22:05:58 by Jason
Amazing game, the man in the trenchcoat rules!
2003-02-09 07:01:09 by earwigz
YEAH HE DA MAN ALLRIGHT! not that ive played the game yet BUT..................
2003-01-21 20:24:53 by Da Crump
Yahtzee, you da man!

Even better than Rob Blanc, which had me laughing so hard at points I almost hemorraged my eyeballs.

I envy this guy, he has mastered AGS.
2003-01-16 05:54:43 by Cleve Blakemore
Great game, kind of like the old lucasarts games. But Who framed Roger Redford is better! HA!
2003-01-15 07:49:29 by Crazy Ho Joe
yeah good game reminds me a lot of Monkey Island 2
2003-01-15 02:03:52 by lordtekno
Excellent! It belongs among the ranks of Monkey Island and King's Quest!
2003-01-11 19:36:14 by Sergio
A great game and a vast improvement since the Rob Blanc series. Trully a top game that brings us back memories of the Lucas Greats. A must to download. (And I'm saying all this although I'm not in good terms with the game's maker)
2003-01-10 03:55:14 by Kyriakos Hasapis (the butcher)
Visuals and overall spirit (or soul) and quality very reminescent of LucasArts classics. It's short and easy, of the few games I played in one go... Very enjoyable.

Bloody Cool Animations! Yahtzee the master,he's the man (let's see you say that 3 times fast.)
2002-11-20 05:34:41 by lord_leon
Great Game! Yahtzee has made a great effort both in creating new puzzles (such as the one in the video store) and designing animations. I really enjoyed playing it.
2002-10-27 05:59:49 by Ricardo
Great Game.
Would have been better if the music wasn't stolen from RPG Maker.
2002-10-25 20:36:35 by Bob the Hun
Great Game! Just as fun as Rob Blanc 1,2, and 3!
