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

"Some good ideas and nice, if technically rough, graphics, help this tale of a camping holiday gone a bit odd. A lack of music and spot sound effects don't. Nor does a seeming endless text-based introduction, and very uneven writing and grammar. The addition of tarot card interactions during conversations is clever, though not wholly successful. Has enough at it's core to be a good game, but needs more development time."

What azerty just wrote is not true! Don't worry, there are no dead ends in this game.

After just talking with the first guy you meet, you are in a dead-end, without knowing it.

The tarot cards remove all kinds of logic from this game!
They also remove the concept of "liberty of actions". This "game" is more a story, the actions must be done in a precise order. For example very beginning of the game: you notice a fruit guy, you just speak to him. Dead-end, you must first speak with another seller. That cancels the immersion.
NOT recommanded.

Interesting story, nice graphics, puzzles where mostly logical but with quite a lot of backtracking. Too bad, there where no music and sound during the game, only in intro and outtro. Interesting dialog system.

As other reviewers have said, puzzles are way convoluted for the average adventure gamer, but that's the only weak point of this game: colourful chracters, an interesting dialogue mechanic, memorable setting and lots of humorous lines make me say: "Recommended!"

The first noticeable thing about this game is the nice backgrounds and quite adequate character art. After a short scene we are introduced to some original game mechanics, which look promising. However, the author could have done a better job explaining them, and the player has to resort to supernatural understanding (or the AGS forums) to figure out how to proceed through the next conversation, where understanding this gimmick becomes necessary.

The game has good immersion, but at points it becomes a chore: there is substantial backtracking involved, and the solutions to the puzzles aren't often clear, or need to be carried in very precise ways. Moreover, even though the author mocks pixel hunting a couple times through the game, he's guilty of it at least twice himself (i.e. bucket and barb wire).

Lots of minor spelling mistakes don't deter the determined player, but might annoy some.

I feel that this could have been a memorable game, had the author taken more time to polish it. Maybe there will be a redux version some day, or we'll be treated to a completely new game; in either case, I'm looking forward to it

The immersion factor was high, and the cards mechanism was a fun and innovative concept.
Although there were some minor logic flaws in the story & puzzles (for my taste), the game is very enjoyable and recommended...
