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

"Here is a game that shows real, genuine effort on the part of Eddy_Kraft to make something memorable, and I found myself enjoying the narrative in spite of some worrisome bugs. Unfortunately, the game falls just short of greatness due, perhaps, to the authors' own ambition; the combat, while functional, is barely so. With little more to do than point and click the zombies become more nuisance than genuine horror; the puzzles, many of which are interesting, often require substantial backtracking through, again, bothersome zombies that reappear always in the same spots; and the city, while big and varied, is setup in such a way that the obvious points of interest are packed unrealistically together (a church right by a bar right by a news station). If you can look past some minor graphical flaws, aimless backtracking and bugs, though, there's a lot to like in Escape from the Chaotic City."

A bit stereotypic...

The story and puzzle elements were mixed out of Romero's movies, Maniac Mansion, Alien and other obvious resources. This eclecticism can be read very easily, since all the original movie's posters are also hanging around. The back-tracking is indeed a bit enerving.

On the other side it was pretty much background work for a person with no knowledge on how perspective actually works. Just the amount of puzzle data and pixels is worth the play. Don't expect big animations here.

After all eclecticism in art is a step before amalgamation...

The game's best points are its visuals and atmosphere and the fact that, visually, it really does pull the player into the story. It's a classic story that's been done many times, but still it's enjoyable.
However, there is quite a big problem with the quality of English. The maker of the game is Argentinian I think, so it's understandable, but the spelling mistakes and incorrect language are quite glaring.
There is also a bug that can occur at the end of the game - if you don't perform actions in a certain order then you can't progress in the game. I noticed some other players on the forum had the same problem, so I think it needs to be looked at.
Aside from the bug, I enjoyed the second half of the game more than the first - the zombies in the first half were rather disappointing and irritating!
